Grand angle was designed to be a truly international classic, its deep and multifaceted design offers unmatched comfort and versatility, making it a coveted addition to any living space.

The Grand angle boasts an articulated headrest and “stretch” stitching, enhancing its undeniable comfort. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this settee is designed to provide a delightful seating experience for individuals from all corners of the globe.

Equipped with an inverted chain system, the backrest offers a range of positions to suit your preference. Whether you desire a high headrest in a vertical position, a rolled-up headrest in combination with a lumbar cushion, or a more relaxed seating experience, the Seraphine Settee effortlessly adapts to your needs.

The mesmerizing stitching details on the backrest create an elastic mesh, ensuring a flawless appearance regardless of the position of the backrest and seat. This stunning “sunburst pleat” not only secures the material in place but also allows the backrest to achieve a perfectly rolled-up position, exuding elegance and style.

Renowned designer Marie-Christine Dorner has ingeniously designed the Grand angle with adaptive seat depth, allowing for customized seating while maintaining a consistent appearance. The broad armrest is thoughtfully designed to provide additional seating space, accommodating comfort and functionality simultaneously.
