The practice of covering a sofa with a throw, common on Spain’s Mediterranean coast, is transformed in Perrine Vigneron and Gilles Belley’s ‘Barnaby’ sofa for Sancal.

 

 

 

“Perrine & Gilles have transformed the anti-aesthetic practice of covering a sofa with a cover into a work of art.” says Sancal. “This tradition was particularly prevalent on Spain’s Mediterranean coast and was crying out to be updated. From this experiment, a duo of sofas and chairs were born.”

Barnaby’s sofa cover is loose, so it can be easily changed to create a new look. A coloured taping adds a touch of colour and marks the lines of the piece.
