Sofas couches

Sofas and couches

 
 

A key item of household furniture is the sofa. The sofa is where we hang out with friends and family – around the TV set or chatting over a cup of coffee. This is why the sofa is often considered absolutely indispensable in a home – even if space is limited. Multi-functionality adds value to a sofa in a micro-apartment. Below are some cases illustrating this.

Working extensively with shape, appearance, and comfortable fit, the American sneaker design guru Matthew Pauk created the Slot sofa. He has managed to capture everything a sofa is about in one piece of furniture. This 3-seater hides an Ottoman, a coffee table and two extra pull-out seats. The Slot is ideal for everything; sleeping, TV series binging, having movie nights with friends or hosting a wine-tasting evening.

The Italian designer Emanuele Magini made a 2-seater sofa wrapped in a single piece of fabric that can be unzipped. The ‘Sosia’ sofa converts into two armchairs, a bed, even into a small changing room. This is a key example of creativity and understanding how a dynamic furniture design can mutate and become a brilliant piece of interior furniture, adaptable to any everyday situation in a micro-apartment setting.
