Designed by Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia

Made in Italy

Clear All


Available for quick ship in three compositions, Charles Sofa by Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia is a tribute to Charles Eames, the American designer, architect, and film director who sustained: “The details are not the details. They make the design”. This concept is enough to tell the story of Charles Sofa, B&B Italia’s longest and best seller. Its design strength shows in the details: the upside-down L foot and the slender raised base both confer a quality of lightness to the sofa.

A leading piece in contemporary lifestyle, Charles became a reference model in the world of design. Its light image accentuated by the essential design of the die-cast aluminum feet makes Charles a sofa with a decidedly contemporary look, a product of great formal elegance that goes well beyond current times and fashions.
