The Coquille Sofa by Markus Johansson Takes Inspiration from the Ocean

The Coquille Sofa by Markus Johansson looks like an artifact from the depths of the ocean. The ribbed backing and overall shape make this couch similar to a shell one might find on the beach in a tropical location.

Since this design is very simplistic and minimalist, it would suit a variety of rooms and not look too imposing. The gray color helps contribute to this, as well as the smaller size of the couch too. However, just because it's simplistic does not mean it lacks character. The subtle shell-shape of the sofa makes it one-of-a-kind: something that consumers would not be able to find at a traditional furniture store.

The Coquille Sofa will help spice up any living room (or even a bedroom) and help add a nautical twist to the overall design.
