The central idea behind the Alcove Sofa is that a sofa can be much more than just a piece of furniture. This is especially true of the Alcove Highback Sofa, whose side and back panels reach an exceptional height. When someone sits down on the Alcove Highback, they find themselves in a secluded space. Thanks to the outstanding acoustic qualities of the Alcove Highback Sofa and its function as a visual screen, it creates a peaceful oasis, especially in spacious living areas. This effect is even more pronounced when two sofas are positioned face to face, thereby defining a room within a room.
