Avec sofa and bench by Materia

Retro chaise lounge


The slim bench-style cushion with two rows of tufting makes a convenient place to sit or easily works as a day bed for guests.  When not in use as a bed or a bench, each end can fold up independently in a single motion and lock in four different positions for varying angles.  The Avec transforms from a flat platform into a sofa seat with arms or a chaise lounge for reclining in either direction.

The tall, upholstered back of the design provides a dramatic backdrop for the bench-style seating.  The uninterrupted block of your choice of color enhances the mini environment of the Avec sofa and bench by Materia, making it a stand-alone piece and a self-contained living space.  Like a work of art, the large backrest frames the bench itself to create a sophisticated focal point that evokes a touch of nostalgia for the excitement of mid-century art and design.  It may not be a large sofa, but the shape of the Avec and the character embedded in its vintage styling give it a presence that won’t be ignored.  Where will you create a retro centerpiece with the Avec sofa and bench?
