Theatre Sofa

This sofa is touted as modern AND comfortable.

“Theatre’s comfort stems from its well-made form rather than excessive layers of stuffing and upholstery. The gentle angle of the backrest, full seat depth and elevated armrests are eminently suited to a formal living room or reception area.”

Honestly, I don’t think you need to feel like you’re being excessive about spending $2500 on a sofa. Good furniture is expensive to make. It will probably outlast you. Think about it. If you have it for the next 40 years, that’s only $67 a year.

‘folded’ coffee table

Check it out, an origami-ish coffee table. No, it doesn’t fold up, but the surface appears to have been folded/unfolded with it’s ‘sloping planes’. It would look pretty killer in person; I’m willing to bet money on it.

“inspired by the art of origami, the ‘folded’ table is yet another in a recent line of impressive designs by arik levy. available in two heights, this rectangular coffee table is supported by a chromed steel base, and has an .5″ thick plastic top made using ‘carousel moulding’ – a process which allows a full consistancy of materials and a polished, scratch resistant surface. the three-dimensional table top is something to be admired, with it’s asymmetrical sloping planes – like, naturally, a sheet of folded origami paper – which creates a diamond-like effect when light is shined upon it. and yet, the inclinations are very slight, so you won’t have to worry about things sliding off.”

by Arik Levy
top available in two colors : standard black or burgundy red.
dimensions : 29.75″w x 51.1″l : high version – 18.5″h : low version – 11″h

Freja Sofa

There are four attributes that leads me to believe this is a wise purchase for those of you in the market for a sofa:
1. It measures eight feet in length.
2. The pillows can be removed to create a daybed-like sleeping surface on which one or two people can curl up.
3. The linen-blend upholstery cover is fully removable for dry cleaning, and features Velcro® tabs for a snug, glove-like fit.
4. The pillows are filled with down.
