Almost nothing overrides my default sofa setting of low, Danish and uncomfortable. But seeing this beauty in a round up of this year’s Milan festival has me all of a shiver.
It’s the New Life sofa by designer Damien Langlois Meurinne for Sé. What a lovely, lozengey shape. Look at the pink velvet.
Langlois Meurinne’s other designs for Sé include chairs called Have Me and Use Me and a sideboard called Surprise Me. (My sideboard is full of old wallpaper, records and a pile of bills – none of which is a surprise to anyone). Any guesses on the name of the sofa then? No, not Spill Tea On Me. No, not Hoover Cat Hair Off Me. Rather more boringly it’s New Life.
