Ligne Roset solves your seating puzzles.
When it comes to functional furniture design, it's fair to say that the sofa hasn't had a major rethink in a while. Yes, the basic lines might change, and you might opt for a scroll arm or a tight back, but those are just aesthetic differences. Until now, that is. Ligne Roset's new Confluences takes giant leap forward in the field, with a puzzle-like design that turns the basic sofa into a shape-shifting piece of art. Playful, yes (especially in varying hues of cheery yellow), but the modular Bultex foam seats make for a seriously good napping spot. Confluences, price on request, available at Livingspace in Vancouver, livingspace.com; Le Belle Arti, Calgary and Edmonton, lebellearti.com; Kesay, Winnipeg, kesay.ca
