Thomas Althaus DS 20 Seatingfor De SedeAfter years of inflationary development in the areas of form and function, of ideas and materials, the time now seems ripe for a return to elegant uncluttered lines. The DS 20 sofa from Thomas Althaus eschews the encumbrances of what so often passes nowadays for sophistication by subtly blending generosity of design with a maximum of straight-lined simplicity.
It celebrates a decisive break from the ritual of the commonplace with linear contours that are the ultimate articulation of comfortable seating. Its ultra-soft cushions wrap the body in a virtually seamless contentment that is heightened still further by adjustable armrests and back-cushioning. The sofa's agile lines appeal not only to our sense of style but also to that inner labyrinth of deeper, more reflective emotions. The DS 20 stands out from the humdrum mass by refusing to settle for even the merest hint of illusory purport. It offers owners of discernment the ideal opportunity to enjoy that much needed dolcefarniente - time and time again.
