Don't let the web-like string fool you, the Floating Sofa doesn't actually come suspended. Yet the suspended facade is entirely intact thanks to its wiry framing that creates an interesting negative space around the couch itself.

Designed by Philippe Nigro of Superstudio Group, the Floating Sofa is a rather minimalist design that focuses on original detailing to make it stand out from the crowd. This cushioned couch boasts a steel tube exoskeleton frame that yields great support as well as an overall intriguing aesthetic.

Perfect for almost any home, the Floating Sofa is more than just a piece of furniture. Full of subtle character, it will act as a fantastic centerpiece for living rooms, making a great first impression of your home. Stats for Web-Entangled Seating Trending: Older & Chilly
