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.
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.
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.
