Fabric > The bespoke hand-crafted Italian fabric has been lavishly used to every part of this sofa, and even unusually covers the complete area of the frame underneath the seat cushions, as can be seen in our images. It has a unique thread that forms the geometric pattern on the neutral fabric beneath. This gives it a great texture with a soft look, a unique appearance and a long-lasting quality.
The fabric unfolds new stories as you interact with it. Get close and examine the intricate structure, step away and be mesmerised by its interplay with light and shadow. Its a fabric that begs to be touched, delivering a rich softness and drape that lends beauty to any form. The true colour is very well represented in our close-up images. This stunning neutral tone that contrasts perfectly with the pewter base is absolutely perfect to match with any colour palette and works with traditional or contemporary styling.

A Chaise-Longue Sofa whose light, slender structure was designed to accommodate an abundance of cushions, for a comfortable, yet decorative effect. Fabulous multi-purpose pieces that can be positioned side by side in a lounge or bedroom; put together to form a sofa, or positioned individually in different rooms. Featuring slimmer armrests placed at the same height as the seat back, and crafted to accommodate any number of cushions placed to suit the whims of need or fancy.With raised base and feet in pressure-cast aluminium with Pewter-coloured finish and a single bench-seat cushion, Andersen Slim 103 offers graceful lines and spare dimensions for a visually light and comfortable effect. Its clean lines lend sophisticated styling to both living and sleeping areas. The inspiration for the sofa is unabashedly luxe elegance; eloquent lines, a more conservative scale and the kind of painstaking construction that expresses time-tested artisan craftsmanship.
Hand-crafted in Italy in the traditional way. Structure Preparation: Let into high density polyurethane foam in different densities. Base: Fitted with metal frame, rectangular section, 30 x 15 mm; Pewter-coloured finish (shade devised by Minotti Studio). Feet (designed by Minotti Studio), die cast metal pressed, Pewter-coloured; ultra-glossy, anti-touch finish. These feet can withstand saline mist (sea salt) for approximately 300 hours and are resistant to scratches, chemical substances, shocks (due to their plasticity) and UV rays.
Protective glides made of Hotel (soft, scratch-proof rubber). Cushions: Thick seat cushion padding in goose down divided into sections, for increased cushion softness. Resilient polyurethane foam insert, covered - in the upper part - with "thermosensitive" polyurethane material. Armrests: Internal side covered with quilted goose down divided into sections, which results in enhanced softness, thereby making the armrests look like cushions. The quality of their structures, fabrics and attention to detail is second to none.
It has to be said that the level of comfort is completely unrivalled, and no amount of adjectives can suitably describe the actual experience. As soon as you see and then touch the exquisite fabric you just know that these are something really quite special indeed. One is immediately aware of a pleasurable feeling of softness. The craftsmanship and quality of these pieces really is something to behold, and you have to see them and experience them with your own eyes to believe just how stunning they are. Everything you would expect from a sartorial piece of furniture from Minotti.These are for each individual unit. So, with the two units together to form a large sofa, the overall width would be approximately 245 cm.
They were positioned in the Master Bedroom. They can only be described as being in a virtually as new condition. It therefore goes without saying that we are 100% confident that they will satisfy the requirements of any potential purchaser.

It's the same country responsible for Da Vinci's paintings, Armani's tailoring and Sophia Lauren's bodaciousness. Is it genetics or something in the Chianti that makes Italians such masters of all things beautiful? Not only is there rich history evident in their bold and brash creations, but we can also feel the drama and bravado of their culture and personalities. The stuff the Italians make is always sexy, gorgeous - and gorgeously made.
Why the historical high bar? The people there are surrounded by unsurpassed cultural stimuli. Can you imagine growing up around Berninis, Michaelangelos, The Colosseum, Gucci, Pucci and Fiorucci?
It's no wonder beauty seeps into their every pore and then gets re-contectualised in the wondrous things they make. The work of the men and women in the pieces we painstakingly curate feels especially relevant right now.We methodically drain the mid-century modern and contemporary wells dry (Knoll and Herman Miller especially have been tapped out), and yet, sitting over there in the corner, cooling sipping Negronis and having a smoke, are Ponti, Aulenti, Sottsass, Colombo, Albini, Bellini, Mari, Mollino, Scarpa, Zanuso, Lissoni, Citterio and many, many others. There is a great treasure trove to be discovered. Whereas the American stuff is in our opinion staid and specifically designed to work for everyone, everywhere, the Italian creations are unique, expressive and outrageous.
The production output from these designers is minuscule compared with that of the U. A and other larger producers, Having a piece of Italian design is akin to having a piece of art or sculpture in your house-at an affordable price. As the world turns politically to the right, the work you'll find here is decidedly left-leaning, as radical and daring as the wild characters who created it.
