Sink into the Shelby Sofa

The Shelby Sofa provides a comforting space to lounge, relax and gather, and ultimately fosters a place where sitters can unwind in style.

The Shelby sofa, designed by G Vegni & G Gualtierotti and manufactured by Barcelona-based Casadesus, is conceived as a linear product – visually, it appears to lift off the ground.

All its volume is supported by slim feet sloped on both ends, and the metallic frame, even if it seems to be very slim, allows to create sofas more than three metres long.

The sofa’s cushions are included, and provide the sitter with extra comfort and design flexibility. The collection permits numerous combinations and in this way, adapts to different environments to create large sofas, sofas with chaise lounge as well as corner sofa solutions.
