Designer: Patricia Urquiola
It was 2005 and the designer said: “I wanted to revisit capitonnè and Chesterfield types of sofas, while paying special attention to the new interpretations made in the 1960s and ‘70s, which I have great regard for.”
Tufty–Time has achieved its goal by contaminating conventional sofa types with a free and casual lifestyle that is mirrored by highly versatile layouts. This modular system starts with an ottoman as the basic piece, which is then accompanied by central, corner and terminal elements with a low or high armrest. The elements are used to invent traditional sofas, sofas with chaise lounge, corner sofas and island elements that provide a 360° seating solution. Cosy in its more accentuated depth, Tufty–Time becomes a meeting place, a welcoming refuge where people can just relax.
Hence the creation of one of the Company's most successful items. It is not merely inspired by the past but, instead, offers an excellent solution for themes such as modular elements, comfort and removable covers, which have been solved with an innovative spirit.
The sofa, can be upholstered in a wide array of different fabrics, in many different colors.
The Tufty Time sofa consists of a series of different sized modules. As such, it can be visualized in many different compositions.
