The Noe Duchaufour Lawrance 'Borghese Sofa' Looks Rugged but Comfy

Modern interior design now has an added flavor of Mother Nature with the Noe Duchaufour Lawrance 'Borghese Sofa.' Its design looks completely natural and equally stunning. This is a sofa that has been built in memory of the stone pines of the Villa Borghese in Roma. The legs and back pieces are made of metal and look like spindly branches holding the stony cushions together. It is a great way to contrast the rugged feel of stone with a comfortable feel of cushioned seats.

It presents the sofa in a hard exterior perfect for solid modern home design, while also reminding patrons that it is nestling seat. The sofa's backrest is not one solid piece; instead, it has been split into three different pieces that have minute space between them. This is what brings out the couch's stony appeal. For those who wish to embody nature in their interior design, this Noe Douchaufour Lawrance piece is the finest.
