Best Sofas from Around the World!

The sofa is the central component of the living room – a starting pint that defines its style, theme and even color scheme. While sofas in neutral hues from the likes of Alberta Salotti and Jori are as enticing as ever, there are also plenty of colorful options at this year’s show with luxurious sofas in bright red from Koinor and those in gentle purple from Gyform making a huge visual statement. The beautiful yellow sofas sets and sectionals from MaxDivani are not far behind both in terms of comfort and class as each of these delights promises to drape you in luxury and timeless Italian panache!

Rest in Comfort

Moving on from the central component of a great living room that is couch, we explore the world of armchairs, recliners, ottomans and a whole lot more.

Yet, it is not all midcentury as the contemporary recliner inspired by those in the past greet us at the CASA International stand. It is the Italia Collection designed by Mauro Lipparini that steals the spotlight here while the futuristic Ascot JR – 9380 chairs from Jori introduce you to dashing design of tomorrow.

Coffee tables and More

It is often the little details that make a big difference to the overall ambiance of the living space and while the coffee table is not always ‘little’, it does have a striking impact. It is geo style and hexagonal shapes that seem to be the way forward with coffee tables as Luísa Peixoto Design brings handmade elegance to this hot trend. Marble is another favorite with designers and this love is clearly perceivable at this year’s Milan show.
