LESLIE | Sofa
Leslie puts a playful new slant on traditional deep-buttoned upholstery. The signature design element is the soft mat that seems to lie on chair though in reality it is permanently attached to it. The smooth, unquilted version is understated but just as elegant. The armrests are certainly an attractive option, as the combination of leather upholstery and wood is superbly executed. For the legs there is a choice of leather covering, a variety of wood stains or standard RAL colours. The range includes dining chairs, a dining table, armchairs, sofas and benches. Despite their formal note, the latter are sleek and versatile and ideally suited to use as companion pieces to classic sofas. Details and materials of the dining table pick up on Leslie’s distinctive features, yet the table’s graceful and restrained formal language blends well with other models, too. The version with a leather covered top cries out for use as a conference table. Only Wittmann, with its wealth of leatherworking experience, could bring off aesthetic and tactile perfection like this.
