Taylor Lounge Sofa by Rui Alves

Manufactured by Menu Furniture, Denmark

After fondly recalling memories of his grandfather’s favourite tailor shop, Portuguese designer Rui Alves returned to the past to find inspiration for crafting the Tailor Sofa. The idea was to celebrate the sofa in all its forms with a structured yet light shape and a sturdy wooden frame, designed for daily use.

Now available in a new material – dark stained oak – the frame and its foam-shell-covered upholstery are formed with an impressive attention to detail, as wooden joints carefully frame the round shape of the sofa, giving the piece a handmade look and feel. As past and present blend in perfect synergy, the Tailor Sofa is to be cherished for many years to come; its appreciation for the past serving as a gentle reminder for the skills and expertise it has been crafted with, as both are passed on from generation to generation.
