Product description

"Armchair and sofa with strong personality and large cushions, providing considerable comfort and great functionality. Available in two different seat depths, and in two different backrest heights, which guarantee a comfortable sitting position and strong adaptation to the needs and requirements of the moment.

Backrest and armrest with internal load-bearing structure in tubular aluminium and a particular system for fastening to the profile. Variable-density foam polyurethane padding and cover in Rollo Fill® (polyester microspheres) and polyester wadding. This particular composition of the cushion gives the padding natural softness and elasticity, a long lifespan and high comfort.
Cushions with topstitched seams and raised profiles.

Extruded aluminium frame with elastic bands, diecast aluminium feet. The frame is painted matt white, stone grey and anthracite grey.

The collection includes three new pouf models: L75xD75, L150xD75 and L150xD44 with frame H30 cm, always in the same finish as the sofa.

The upholstery in fabric or leather covers every part of the sofa and is completely removable.
Optional extra covers are available if required. All units in leather may have, depending on their size and at MDF Italia’s discretion, one or more seams.

These contrasting seams characterise and identify the Yale X collection, only for the high backrest variant. Available in the colours white, medium grey and anthracite, which can be selected and combined by the client.

Product family


With their cosy, generous cushions, the new down-filled version of Yale sofas and the Yale armchair is the result of a desire to provide simplicity with comfort, lightness and quality, and to offer the image of a sofa that is not “bourgeois”, but contemporary.

The Yale project was included in the 2010 ADI Design Index, an honour bestowed by the Association for Industrial Design on the most important products introduced over the past three years. In 2011, the project was also entered in the competition for the XXII edition of the Compasso d’Oro award, the design world’s most sought-after, most prestigious recognition of quality in the production and design of goods and services. Yale won one of the 19 Compasso d’Oro awards in the category of fine design for domestic living, for its vision of padded upholstery in a minimalist frame.

The Yale collection is rounded out by 3 new ottomans - W75 x D75, W150 x D75 and W150 x D44 in H30 cm - with the same fabrics and trim as the sofa.
