CHARLES Sofa

01 product description

Product description

High seat modularity starting with several elements different for types and sizes - this is the concept behind Charles. Linear and corner compositions are developed with these elements, particularly with chaise longue end units. Peninsula-style compositions can be beautifully arranged in the centre of room. A single seat-cushion, a series of free cushions placed on the backrest, a light picture enhanced by the pure lines of die-cast aluminium feet make Charles a sofa with a decidedly modern taste.
