A sofa is both a social space and a security zone. It’s an environment of its own: a room inside a room, inside a home. With this in mind, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec designed the Alcove Sofa, which was inspired by the Arabic “al-qubba”, and is a secluded, upholstered niche, designed for lounging and sleeping.

Like its ancient forbearer, the Alcove Sofa creates an intense sense of intimacy and enclosure, a feeling of escape from the chaos of the outside world. You don’t just sit on an Alcove Sofa, you retreat into it. It’s tall, deep and remarkably soft. Lay back, tuck up your feet, and you´ll immediately find yourself in a much safer and more private world.

The sofas of the Alcove family provide places of retreat where you can scarcely be seen or heard from the outside. As ‘a space within a space’ they offer their own world of colour, comfort and tranquillity. The Alcove Love Seat offers all these advantages in a limited space and also makes use of thin, flexible wall panels, which despite their compact external dimensions, provide the double-seater with a maximum of interior space.
