It’s trending: ‘snake seating’ on leather sofas

Posted By Gudy / November 14, 2014 / 4 Comments

Are you swooning at trying out one of theses snake curved sofas popping up on the net now? I do. I have been observing new sofa shapes for the past two Salone del Mobile editions. They have become more of an island with seating possibilities on both sides gathering several groups and conversations.

But these s-shaped are different and I’d love to sit one day of one of these and just test them. The sofas are all made by a modular seating arrangement that conforms to pretty much any space and need. You can have a curved, round version or a s- shape.

The DS-600 sofa was designed by Ueli Berger, Eleonore Peduzzi-Riva, Heinz Ulrich and Klaus Vogt already in 1972. I guess we are then talking about an icon, the origin of today’s interpretations and a nice revival.


You can zip a number of the same element together until you have the whited size. The DS-600 comes in leather or in a soft upholstery now.

Azzedine Alaia apartments

The Tunisian-born French fashion designer has set up three apartments in a quiet Marais district street, right next to his own studio, shop and warehouse, in partnership with 10 Corso Como, the Milan temple of style.

I would have loved to add another image but couldn’t find its source. So, if you fancy some more inspiration, here it goes. What do you think? Do you like the retro feel?

    I like the retro vibe but do you think they’re comfortable? They don’t look too comfy to me…

    Sooo long! A very clever concept, kind of like the new modular. They remind me a bit about the de Seda sofa (not the length though) which I’d love to own one day… Mel x p.s I tried to sign up to the newsletter but the button doesn’t work on this post. I’ll have a look on your site. xx
