Luxurious comfort in any space

The KK48651 Addition Sofa by Kaare Klint is inspired by a French rococo sofa – it is part of a modular system that is a testament to simplification and purpose. Creation of the Addition Sofa series started in the early 1930s for the New Carlsberg Foundation offices in Copenhagen. Klint continued to work on the design, and showed the final Addition Sofa at the 1933 Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition. The series has clean seams around the seat and back and rhomboid panels, held in place with leather-covered buttons that open with pressure to stop the leather from stretching too much. These crafted details capture the essence of classic design and mean that the KK48651 Addition Sofa can be enjoyed for many generations to come. The Addition Sofa modular system means that the KK48651 Addition Sofa is also available with a back as the KK48650 Addition Sofa. The combination allows for new compositions.
