Inspired by the famous Beatles song, Let it Be Sofa by Ludovica & Roberto Palomba for Poltrona Frau is relaxing and welcoming, rejecting all forms of convention and formalism. As the name suggests, this sofa also embraces and reinterprets the time-honored idea of the Roman triclinium, a space in which people would recline, eat, converse, and generally laze about.
This versatility is the hallmark of a sofa designed as a well-equipped domestic refuge, a multi-purpose space to enjoy at your own pace. Let it Be is a modular furniture system, open to infinite configurations. The modular sofas can be completed with shelves and storage units that expand their functions. The structure and the soft down cushions appear to be suspended on saddle leather straps. The foot, unexpectedly set back compared with the corner, exalts the sensation that the seats are floating in space. The purity of the design melds with precious details.
