Modus Lily Modus Lily Modus Lily Modus Lily

The Lily chair is a compact lounge chair with moulded shell which benefits from a high back and arm rest. Its simplistic upholstery gives it clean, uninterrupted lines and a lightweight appearance. The option to change the interior and exterior fabric makes it visually flexible and combined with the broad variety of base options including a timber, tube or swivel base makes it suitable for every budget and environment from bedroom chairs to breakout spaces. Taking its name from the calla lily that inspired designer Michael Sodeau to create a chair with an unparalleled purity of form, the restrained simplicity of the Lily chair has been extended into a compact sofa of equal grace and beauty.   Crafted from a simple, cradling, mono shell with upholstery reminiscent of fine tailoring, with its pinched detail at the arms, Lily embodies simplicity, precision and grace. Its tidy footprint and light aesthetic belie its luxuriously inviting ergonomic; highly supportive arms and back provide a superb degree of comfort. Where space is at a premium the Lily sofa is the perfect choice. ITEM CODE: LIL001 – Lily timber chair LIL002 – Lily Tube chair LIL003 – Lily swivel chair
