Solid Rock Seating

The Pompeii Sofa is Soft on the Eyes and Hard on the Backside

— October 13, 2013 — Art & Design
The Pompeii Sofa would be a gorgeous addition to a cool modern interior, and it would equally suit an outdoor lounging space as well. Made from a beautiful Italian calcareous rock called travertine, the piece has bronze feet and armrests, and it's perhaps most appropriately classified as a bench.

A lover of modern design will absolutely eat this object up. It isn't the sort of couch on which you'd want to curl up with a book, but it exudes a firm sophistication and formality that would contribute aesthetically and practically to very grand spaces. Although it's rather minimalist, Mattia Bonetti's Pompeii Sofa is at once earthy, industrial and artistic. You can discern the natural lines of the stone, and the metal components have a grace about their gently curved formation.
