Charles 4 piece sofa

charles by Antonio Citterio for B&BItalia

To celebrate the 20 year anniversary of Charles from B&BItalia we are pleased to offer 4 matching ‘elements’ from this Collection by Antonio Citterio. Soft velvety upholstery in a neutral tone to suit many interiors.Charles has been a global design success for 20 years. There are 16 ‘elements’ in the Collection.

Inspiration: Antonio named ‘charles’ after his favourite modernist designer Charles Eames. The single slim seat cushion and appearance of ‘lightness’ are a nod to the mid-century design spirit of the 50s and 60s. The inverted ‘L’ shaped feet are a signature feature of the collection.

Fabrication: A solid steel base structure (researched and tested by B&BItalia’s technicians) is embedded inside polyurethane foam mouldings. The feet are die-cast aluminium engineered to hold the weight of the frame and its occupants. Highest quality Italian down cushion inners and the finest upholstery fabric in the world further elevate B&BItalia’s products above their imitators.

Hidden Features: Covers are removable or replaceable (not that you will need to, the upholstery is excellent). Softest down ‘self plumping’ scatter cushions.

Design Consigned Stylist: Multiple configurations are possible with these four elements. I love the idea of using them in two connected spaces. Add your own accent cushions and throws to suit your seasonal moods. Place a large tray on the ottoman and it doubles as a coffee table. Seats 8-10 in comfort.

DC Collector: Authentic original, made in Italy by B&BItalia. 10 years old, beautifully maintained with no detracting marks. Wears B&B brand seam tag. Retails new for over $44,000 or more, depending on selected fabric and scatter cushions.
