Walters Furniture Collaborates with Avenue Interior Design
The Modular Sofa can be utilized in a variety of spaces in numerous configurations. The tubular aluminum arms are completely removable to instantly transform the sofa configuration into a daybed or chaise. Pair three sofas to get to create an “L” or “U” shaped sectional seating group in an instant. Furthermore, the Avenue sofa is suitable for indoor or outdoor use making it an instant classic in the world of outdoor furniture.
“We’ve recently noticed an increased demand for interiors (and exteriors) to have more flexibility which can be a challenge when it comes to selecting the right furniture,” said Andrea DeRosa, principal designer/co-founder, Avenue Interior Design. “Our Avenue sofa concept was born as a result of needing to fit that niche. Studying the best dimensions, proportions and modularity, we’ve developed this lightweight, indoor/outdoor piece that can instantly transform from a sofa, to a chaise, to a day bed to a sectional sofa.”
Nido Stool (Soft Top) by Ocrum
Nido in its soft version comes with a powder coated steel frame in Aztec Gold with matching upholstered pillow. Nido is both a stool and a home for all the little things that matter. The elegant steel rod frame creates a basket for storing small items. The solid or soft seat is interchangeable and comes in subtle color tones and fabrics and is manufactured in Italy.
“I always wanted to play with lines to create a unique optical effect from both 2D to 3D,” said Sean Zhang, creative director/owner, Ocrum. “I got inspiration from bird’s nests and I think it can combine perfectly with the metal frame to create a stool that can both to seat and hold personal items.”
