After fondly recalling memories of his grandfather’s favourite tailor shop, Portuguese designer Rui Alves returned to the past to find inspiration for crafting the Tailor Sofa. An image of the tailors bent over work tables and of old wooden hangers holding grey suits has stayed with Rui.
The sofa has a light and airy appearance, the structured upholstered part supported by the wooden frame for a comfortable and practical sofa for everyday use. Like that tailor shop, he has designed the Tailor Sofa to be authentic, with everything on display: “I wanted to show all of it, the structure, the beautiful oak wood. Nothing should be hidden, as is normally done in sofa design. The sofa is meant to be seen from all sides.” It is especially beautiful from behind.
Now available in a new material – dark stained oak - the frame and its foam-shell-covered upholstery are formed with an impressive attention to detail, as wooden joints carefully frame the round shape of the sofa, giving the piece a handmade look and feel. As past and present blend in perfect synergy, the Tailor Sofa is to be cherished for many years to come; its appreciation for the past serving as a gentle reminder for the skills and expertise it has been crafted with, as both are passed on from generation to generation.
