These three-seat sofas named ‘Saratoga’ are designed by Italian designer couple Lella & Massimo Vignelli.

All attention goes to the essential form and material in this design by Vignelli. The “Saratoga” is one of the first examples of modular and modern living in twentieth century. In their own words: “We have designed this sofa because we really needed a sofa. And the sofa wanted was one with an architectural character rather that a soft, smooth object. A sofa that could be set out in the middle of the room. We didn’t want it to be pushed up against the walls; we wanted it to move around as needed.”

We can easily provide upholstery and different colors of the frame according to your own Desire.

The leather on this piece shows signs of age and use, overall still in good condition. If you are interested to reupholster the sofa, our in-house atelier would gladly customize the pieces following your own wishes.
