Charming, Shady, Airy

No more dragging around with cushions or struggling with covers!
Imagine sitting outdoors in a lazy big sofa, enjoying the good weather, funky drinks, a nice rest or a good conversation: who doesn’t love that? What a shame that we have to transform that good looking sofa into a bare frame or hide it away under a cover to protect it from the elements.
Should we just accept that ugly look for most of the year?
That’s why Extremis turned the idea of outdoor seating completely inside out. They use a super robust cover material to make a sleek, weatherproof and always ‘nice to look at’ sofa. An ingenious storage pouch in the back of the Walrus hides a foldout blanket and a thick cushion, to provide the softness, comfort and touch appreciated in contact with your body.
This softness is provided in a matter of seconds: a warm, dry and comfortable place to sit is instantly available outdoors whenever the sun pops out. Yes, in all seasons!
Walrus is huge (well of course…), extremely wide and deep if you don’t use the back rest cushion. Solid arm rests offer extra seating, you can host lots friends or enjoy it in any position you like. Why not use it as a bed during a hot summer night?
The parts that are permanently exposed to the elements are made of an extremely durable tarpaulin material (used for trucks) that does not absorb any water or dirt. The sofa’s bulky form ensures that water drains away quickly. Thanks to this smooth, washable material, care and maintenance are kept to a minimum.
The part of the sofa that comes into contact with the body is made from soft, tactile, high-quality material with low volume to be taken out easily for washing or long term storage.
Walrus saves on storage space inside the house and, more than anything, it saves you a lot of time and effort. It is a real tool for togetherness that makes spending time together as pleasant as can be, all year round!
