A Sculptural Sofa Inspired by an Old Tailor Shop

When Portuguese designer Rui Alves began work on a sofa for Menu, he remembered his grandfather’s favorite tailor shop where he’d watch the tailors huddle over their work tables and the grey suits being hung with wooden hangers. As with that old tailor shop, he wanted everything out in the open on full display, which is completely atypical of most sofa designs. The Tailor Sofa stands out not just for its sculptural shape but because it’s beautiful from all angles.

Its overall appearance is visually light thanks to its open, natural oak wood structure that supports the curvy, upholstered foam shell.  The Tailor Sofa is available in a Light Grey (Hallingdal 65) fabric or a Dark Brown (Dunes Leather) option.
