Contemporary sofas with last century twist
Savannah sofa by Monica Förster, creator of some of the most internationally renowned objects in contemporary Swedish design today, has a more contemporary clean aesthetic with its bench-like structure and streamlined rounded cushions. Its much more minimal, refined look would go well with a contemporary or Scandinavian interior. Savannah brings several ideas into one: slender lines, natural materials, a touch of nature, and a distinct but present reminiscence of 1970s.

Anne Boysen’s Toward sofa is a curious combination of organic shapes and a mid-century modern minimalist aesthetic. By merging the normal use of an armchair, a chaise lounge, and a tete-a-tete, the design emerged. TOWARD is a base with a mattress and two back rests in different sizes. The two loose and interchangeable cushions open up for a versatile appearance and function. The sofa comes in six color combinations: light gray, dark gray, brown, pink, blue and green shades. ■
