Colette

A sustainable fashion icon

Colette is a series that suits up modern environmental considerations in classical fashion. Aesthetical inspiration is drawn from the Chanel suit of the early 20th century, but under the surface are materials and craftsmanship based on the circular economy. The result is a timeless model, in both style and sustainability.

The best dressed sofa in town

Colette’s most prominent detail is the edging along the sides of the cushions: a direct reference to the trim of Coco Chanel’s classical suit. The fabric and colour is somewhat different from the covers to create contrast. Discrete enough to give harmony to the shape, yet distinct enough to be striking.

A profile that turns heads

Even the silhouette bears traces of the Chanel suit. The lines show a classical, strict profile, with the seat slightly offset. The edging rises several centimetres and makes an outline along the armrest. Such discrete aesthetics make Colette simple to position in a room. It is spacious, yet also neat and tidy, thanks to its well-balanced proportions. For those with particular requirements, the rectangular shape lets you build modules.

Fashion to the tips of its toes

Inspiration from the fashion world runs all the way down to the feet. The straight, narrow legs stand like stilettos on the floor. The choice of materials includes oxidised brass or dark-grey textured coating. The heel runs about the leg like a ring, echoing the edging around the cushions.

Layered comfort

The seat comprises of several layers to offer as much comfort as possible. Seat cushions are filled with down to give a naturally soft feeling. Then a thin layer of padding creates stability. In turn, the entire cushion rests on a nozag base, giving the seat both springiness and flexibility. You sit softly without sinking down and the padding maintains its shape without needing to be puffed up.

Timelessly modern

Colette is a design that can be the centre of attention without taking over. The lovely comfort and clean design means it is equally at home in a living room as a hotel lobby or a relaxed meeting room. The cushions can be turned over and the covers are removable to extend the fabric’s lifespan. And if you feel the need for change, you can easily switch covers and bring new life to your furniture. Thanks to the timeless design, Colette remains constantly modern, even when the fashion changes.

»I see Colette as an excellent frame for you to decorate and give character. You can create your own personal expression by choosing the material for the covers.«
