Face to Face is an original reinterpretation of the sofa as a space for one-to-one relations, with two opposing backs and soft, feather cushions inviting people to sit vis-à-vis. With its light, classical style, Face to face is conceived to take a central role and position, be it in contract spaces or in the intimacy of a living room. Covered in fabric or leather, it is sewn with contrasting cross-stitching.
