We love a good sofa. Having specified many custom-made sofas for clients over the years, we really appreciate the workman-ship that goes into this fundamental piece of furniture.
The Savannah comes with an impressive provenance! Designed by Monica Förster - one of Swedan's foremost designers, for Danish manufactuerer Erik Jøergenson, the range includes a sofa, chair and most recently, a coffee table.
Monica Förster is a multi-award winning designer (2015 Elle Decoration Swedish Designer of the year for example) who's work is characterised by "a strong sense of pure form mixed with a never-ending curiosity for new materials and technology".
This approach is clearly apparent with the Savannah - it's deceptively simple form enables the beauty of the materials (leather, fabric and timber) to shine and work harmoniously and is a reflection of both the designer's vision and the craftmanship of the manufacturer.
Savannah consists of a neat sofa and/or chair with a relatively high back which just oozes quality with a natural oak frame, wrapped in saddleback (aniline) leather.
More recently, a coffee table has been added to the collection - recreating the dowel-like frame with a slim-line top to compliment the range.
The coffee table is available in a couple of sizes, and in a variety of wood stains and additionally with a granite top - a refreshing alternative from the current popular trend of using marble. "The Savannah series features natural Scandinavian materials, so it seems more fitting to use granite. The beautiful joinery combined with the solid granite top creates a uniquely Scandinavian sensation" stated Monica Förster.
