Round in all the right places, this textured sofa draws inspiration from postmodern Italian architecture. Our new design, Logan, sits low and deep, upholstered in a lush looped fabric that feels like a true boucle (but costs a lot less). The back's pleated detailing adds character, combined with rolled arms and a brushed stainless steel base.
