The Beau Fixe Sofas Are Held Together by Pinching Metal Structures

Unique clamp couch frames were developed by Inga Sempé as a fresh and creative way to consider furniture assembly. The structures of the pieces within the Beau Fixe collection rely on visible metal braces that actually clutch the folding upholstery of the big, comfy cushions.

Made for Ligne Roset, the loveseat, the armchair and the footstool have remarkably slimline designs, considering that the bulk of each object appears to be a plushy bolster. The pillows are packed into generous fabric covers, enabling connected sections to be folded into seams of excess material. It's these areas that are pinched by the brackets of the clamp couch frames. This honest and sophisticated design appeals to upmarket consumers who appreciate seeing how an object was put together.
