The handcrafted Simpatico Collection (2010) delivers comfort and elegance in one exquisite package. Wonderfully simple and with barely a seam in sight, there's a gracefulness to the shape of these pieces. Upholstered with what's called waterfall tailoring, the cushions and frames are sewn with one continuous piece of fabric wrapping over the front, from top to bottom or side to side. The cushions are finished with a boxing strip around the sides and constructed without welting or visible stitches. It takes expertise and careful planning to upholster this way, but before you think Simpatico sounds too precious for everyday living, think again. Deep seats, wide armrests (a magnificent perch for your laptop) and down-blend throw pillows make Simpatico a great place to hang out. Adjust the back cushions to find your perfect seat depth or stretch out for a comfortable nap. Made in U.S.A. Simpatico sits a few inches higher than some of our other sofas, but because of its balanced proportions, it still has an unobtrusive modern aesthetic. Simpatico is built by hand by a California-based manufacturer that's been creating comfortable seating for more than 50 years. Cushion covers are removable for cleaning.
