This sofa has been carefully constructed with the use of “lenticular” elements that comes with an attached coffee table. It is equipped with a supporting frame in 30×30 mm “calendared” tubular steel with epoxy powder coating, coated rubber elastic straps. The sofa is padded in polyurethane foam covered in 100% polyether thermally bonded onto a polyamide velveteen backing and a felt pad to protect the seat cushion. Fabric or leather upholstery, both fully removable by zippers and Velcro fastenings. Seat depth is a very spacious 64cm.
Coffee table base is screwed to the supporting frame through a 20mm tubular steel support with black PVC closing cap, on which is welded a “boxed-shaped” element in 3 mm thick laser-cut steel sheet inserted with a 0 °-90° swivel mechanism, and 5mm thick steel plate on which the top is fixed. Coffee table top is available in wood or marble.
Here is a system of sofas and upholstery elements with sinuous and sensual shapes. Round style recurs in all the modules of the series, which features linear sofas, L-shaped configurations, or organic compositions. The covering, in fabric or leather, enhances its full and voluptuous look. Designed by Jean-Marie Massaud, Saint-Germain transforms any space into a warm and inviting living space.
Inspired by the voluminous hide armchairs of the clubs of the last century, Le Club reinterprets one of the archetypes of design with a modern approach. Comfort nor quality is compromised when creating the armchair that lightens the shapes and materials for a casual yet elegant look. Between craftsmanship and technology, Le Club is destined to become timeless and will fit in domestic spaces as well as institutional places.
Head: What is the difference between a sofa, a couch and a settee?
Here’s the definitive guide from https://www.sofa.com/gb
A sofa is defined as an upholstered bench or seat featuring arms and a back, allowing people to sit comfortably.
The couch originated in French interior design in the 17th century, and consisted of a lounge seat with supports at both ends, but with no back support, unlike a sofa as we know it today. A couch was very similar to a traditional daybed or chaise longue. The name likely came from the French word coucher, meaning to sleep.
The settee originated in the Middle Ages, and whilst it had a design more similar to the sofa it is was typically made from wood, and features an elegant and intricately carved back.
