Mare Loose Cushion Sofa

Designed 2006

The Mare sofa with loose cushions was designed in 2006 by René Holten. The design is restrained with clean lines and subtle details. Typical of this design is the slender base, which runs from back to front. This gives the sofa an elegant look. Mare is extremely comfortable and fits in both modern and classic interiors.

To create the ideal design for every interior, the Mare family was expanded in 2018 to include several new elements like a chaise longue and a dormeuse. The basic Mare design consists of a 2, 2.2, 2.5, or 3-seater sofa. Whether you prefer small or large, austere or playful, the Mare lets you create your own personalized design. The individual elements make it possible to create surprising combinations. Opt for fabric or leather, narrow or broad armrests. Tailor the sofa to your needs by choosing from two heights: 43 cm or 45 cm.
