Sofa Wood, design Monica Förster
Wood, designed by Monica Förster, is characterized by clear lines and its distinct wooden frame. In both shape and choice of material it reflects the Swedese design tradition, not least Yngve Ekström’s vision of creating elegant furniture that combine strong wooden details with textiles. In particular, the wooden frames of each sofa have been carefully selected and treated, in order to have the finest quality of natural grains present in the wood.
