The Alcove sofa family proves that a sofa can go beyond being a mere piece of furniture to become a room within a room. With high, flexible side and back panels, the pieces in this group create a variety of different spaces for privacy and retreat. Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have expanded the Alcove product family with the addition of Alcove Plume, a low-slung sofa with an emphasis on casual comfort.
The thick, plush look of the Alcove Plume seat cushions is matched by their superlative comfort. Though softly padded, they provide adequate support so that sitters do not sink in too deeply. Combined with the quilted side and back panels – a hallmark feature of the entire Alcove family – and the pointed loose cushions, they create a cosy and restful nest. Alcove Plume offers an inviting place to put up your feet and relax in its soft upholstery, which comes in a wide range of colours.
The brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec live and work in Paris. The spectrum of their work ranges from small everyday objects to architectural projects. They have worked with Vitra since 2000 and have contributed numerous designs to both the office and home collections.
