A new favourite at TLS is the Mariposa sofa is designed by British design duo BarberOsgerby. To quote a member of the team, 'It's the most comfortable sofa I have ever sat on.'
The Mariposa family of sofas are cosy and inviting, yet with a modern touch. They owe their extraordinary comfort to the pleasantly soft upholstery and an ingenious adjustment mechanism, which makes it possible to individually adapt the side and backrest elements for various sitting or reclining positions. These functional features are not immediately obvious, but the slim side and back elements can be silently adjusted, from an upright position to an outward angle of approximately 30° and back again. The resistance is calibrated in such a way that these elements stay in place when the sitter leans back in a normal fashion, but will adjust to the desired angle when intentional pressure is applied. This flexibility allows individual users to determine the position that is most comfortable for them.
The Mariposa sofas are available in range of size configurations to fit your requirements: the Mariposa Love Seat provides spacious seating for one person or – as the name suggests – a cosy spot for two love birds. The Mariposa 2-Seater is an ideal choice for small, urban apartments where it offers full comfort despite its compact dimensions. These two models come with one continuous seat cushion – in contrast to the larger 2 ½-seater and 3-seater versions of Mariposa: fitted with two seat cushions, these sofas invite users to stretch out lengthwise and use the adjustable armrests as a back or neck rest – for instance, as a relaxing place to read or take a nap.
