DotY 2022: Our Judges for the Maker Category Can’t Wait to See What You’ve Got
Strong and simple, shapely and spare, sophisticated and sultrythese sofas are more than mere seating.
Calligaris’s new modular sofa, Kora (price on request), includes a side platform open to interpretation: end table, display space or perhaps even a stage of sorts . . . your move. calligaris.com
The barrel-back Melrose sofa ($11,130) by Kelly Wearstler (who’s also a judge for our 2016 Designers of the Year awards) is nubby in its nish, with subtle curves and a soft hue, yet makes a strong footprint and bold statement that’s both feminine and masculine. kellywearstler.com
The Logan sofa ($1,998) from Muse and Merchant has the vintage edge of walnut wood and mid-century design paired with some very now tailoring in soft grey. museandmerchant.com
New to Western Canada, the German design house of Rolf Benz melds form and multi- function in the Plura sofa ($27,000)—adjust according to mood. rolf-benz.com
Button-tufted textured leather and reclaimed wood join forces in the embrace-like curve of the classic yet contemporary Ohm sofa by Modeo ($3,999). modeofurnishings.com
Handmade of Italian leather yet with moveable armrests, the Aida sofa ($6,400) by Cierre Imbottiti lets you sit regally or lounge like, well, the operatic princess Aida. resourcefurniture.com
“Hands down, we love the new Beam sofa designed by Patricia Urquiola for Cassina. It was one of our favourite pieces that we saw in Milan this year at the Salone del Mobile. We’re seeing a really strong direction in furniture that looks casual and comfortable, but still feels sophisticated because it has impeccable detailing and construction.”—Chad Falkenberg and Kelly Reynolds are Falken Reynolds Interiors, the Vancouver-based design team just named the winner of Western Living’s 2016 Robert Ledingham memorial award for Emerging Interior Designers. falkenreynolds.com.
