BBItalia designer sofa Charles

BBItalia Charles sofa by Antonio Citterio

The Charles sofa by Antonio Citterio for BBItalia. A matching pair in superb condition.

Designed / launched by whom/when: From the Charles Collection designed in 2002 by Antonio Citterio, a pair of CH228 sofas.

Inspiration: Inspired by, and named after Charles Eames, the signature inverted L leg and slim seat cushion gives this sofa that appearance of ‘lightness’ Antonio noticed and loved about Modernist furniture.

Fabrication: Steel base structure to which the B&B patented L shaped leg brackets are attached. Polyurethane body with separate seat cushions. Fully removable upholstery in ESEO 2104151 (a neutral mini herringbone weave)  Includes 4 large back 72cm x 48cm + 4 smaller 48 x 48 scatter self cushions with square seam detailing and 100% Italian duck down inserts.

Design Consigned Stylist: When you are over modular seating and crave the formal elegance and symmetry of two facing sofas. One for you and one for them, keeping a civilised tone of social distancing alive and well in the home. The herringbone weave only becomes visible up close.

Design Consigned Collector: Authentic originals, one meticulous owner since 2003, made in Italy by B&BItalia.
