Alcove Sofa & Alcove Highback
The fundamental concept behind the Alcove product line – creating places of shelter and seclusion – is especially evident in the Alcove Highback Sofa. Within the high side and back panels of the Alcove Highback Sofa, sitters are shielded both visually and acoustically from the surrounding environment. This effect is even more pronounced when two sofas are positioned across from each other to make a ‚room within a room‘.
With slightly lower panels, the comfortable Alcove Sofa is an inviting spot for open, animated conversation – or simply a place to read, chat or enjoy a relaxing break.
