Dives is the ultimate sofa, whose image is enhanced by the armrest that has a taut cover on the outside, and a quilted effect on the inside inspired by the classic chesterfield sofa. The point where the two finishes meet on the armrest is highlighted by a blanket stitch detail, which is also the profile for the cushions. The seat depth is shallow (cm 98 deep), and the feet area available in fabric or with a black shellac finish. Dives is also available as modular sofa with deeper elements (cm 104 deep), without the quilted internal detail.
The concept behind the Charles is to have a high seat modular sofa with all the elements available in different forms, types and sizes. Linear and corner compositions have been developed with these elements in mind, especially for the chaise lounge end units. The Charles’ peninsula-style compositions look especially beautiful as the centerpiece of a room. The single-seat cushion, the free pillows placed on the backrest and the pure lines of the die-cast aluminium feet give the Charles sofa a decidedly modern feel.
