As a stand-alone piece or sectional, the Edmond sofa’s hallmark feature is its tubular metal structure that makes a bold statement when viewed from both the front and the back.
The generously-padded seat and seat back cushions stand in contrast to the airy lightness of the upholstered structure. The metal structure is available with satin, chrome, burnished, black chrome or champagne finish, chosen to match the upholstery, which can be crafted in all of the fabrics and leathers in the Flexform collection. Edmond is a sofa with a bold yet versatile personality designed to sit well in any type of setting.
