Sofa and armchair collection


About Me:
Carmel has generous proportions and a soft, voluptuous form that’s more cushion than frame. Like all of Massaud’s ideas Carmel is finely resolved. The detailed stitching is beautifully tailored with the selection of materials ranging from textured fabrics to smooth leather.

The collection also includes the Carmel Easy Chair and both pieces are made with aluminium bases and a structure of molded flexible polyurethane. Designed for commercial and residential interiors the Carmel Sofa and Easy Chair are available exclusively from Poliform www.poliform.com.au
