Old and new sofas. It’s about design and imagination.

“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works” — Steve Jobs.

A couch, also known as a sofa, settee, futon is a piece of furniture for seating two, three or more people.

It is usually in the form of a bench, with upholstered armrests, and often fitted with springs and cushions.

A couch is used primarily for seating, and it may be used for sleeping in an emergency or for a lovely guest.

“Furniture must have personality, as well as be beautiful.” -Rose Tarlow (Interior Designer).

What’s your style?

Thank you, friends
