Some history about the design process of the sofa:

Ico Parisi`s `Comma` sofa is the 20th Century Design classic which inspired this contemporary piece.

Designed for the era of lounge living, this piece is inviting with its relaxing curves & lush fabric. The elegant style, size, shape & quality detail make this piece well suited for a grand sitting room. The style fits within a range of Interiors such as Traditional, Art Deco, Hollywood Regency, Minimalist or Contemporary.

In the past we have stocked original vintage Ico Parisi sofas. As originals are difficult to come by and often there are many issues with condition, we arranged to have this model newly made. 

Working with local craftsman in Italy using traditional methods to exact specifications and quality materials, each sofa is individually made and has a quality handmade solid wooden frame. 

The seat is composed by an horizontal solid wooden plate with on top an all foam cushion. Different layers of diverse density foam, from a high density foam core at the bottom to a softer layer of foam at the top, and then a Polyester fiber wrap is bonded to the foam it to give a softened sculptured look and allow maximum comfort without loosing the sculptural organic shape. This choice of cushion allows to have a quite firm seat but softer to the touch, with the fewest possible wrinkles in the fabric.This compositions repeats along the back & sides of the sofa.

It seats very comfortable 3 - 3 1/2 people and work also as a chaise longue on the wider portion which is more loungy and allows a person to complete lay horizontally.

The kidney shape seat portion of the sofa has two areas; to the left it is narrow with a lower back which rises to the right with a circular end. The curved back follows an organic movement with the maximum height near the centre of the sofa. The back lowers at both ends and goes on to elegantly embrace the seat. This detail creates movement & continuity.

This piece is fully trimmed around both the frame & seat cushion which emphasises the shape and flow of design.

The frame sits on 6 removable handmade polished brass legs that screw to the frame. Each leg is in solid brass and has the top portion made as a plate, with four holes to screw to the sofa giving great stability to the piece.

Packing is offered free of charge. We have successfully often shipped this sofa safely worldwide. We take great attention to the package. The frame will be wrapped in several layers of bubblewrapp/foam/cardboard and a final layer of cellophane for safe transport. If necessary the legs can be easily unscrewed from the frame and packed separately in a box.
