Sumo by Living Divani
This new sofa for 2020 by Living Divani is for the real design aficionado. A tribute to the essence of elegance, the new biconvex Sumo sofa designed by Piero Lissoni inspires dynamism, character and energy throughout the space with a slender and unique silhouette that is at once rigorous yet fluid. Edged with a Canaletto walnut veneer. Fully removable fabric or leather upholstery.
Era Scrittoio Desk by Living Divani

The desk features both an open compartment and a drawer unit. Gunmetal gray coating with brass feet. Surface is a walnut or stone oak veneer. Accent panels and the drawer facade may be finished with white cream, red wine, blue ocean or multiple gray glossy paint finishes.
Hammock Outdoor Lounge by Paola Lenti
The Hammock outdoor lounge chair comes to Paolo Lenti from the design studio of Rene Gonzalez, whose namesake is one of the most prominent figures in today’s international design world. The lounge features a fixed, handmade braided “rope cord” upholstery covering available in solid or two-color combinations. The body features a gloss-varnished, solid stainless steel tubing structure.
Sengu Sofa by Cassina
Absolute comfort, generous volumes and a delicate design with simple geometries characterize the Sengu sofa from Cassina. Designed by Particia Urquiola to rediscover a convivial dimension and inspired by the Orient, the Sengu sofa stands out for its different and never conventional compositions all with natural materials and colors.
Sea of Tranquility Table by De Padova
A new dining table in the Time & Style Edition collection by De Padova, Sea of Tranquility is inspired by torii, the style of archways seen at entrances of traditional Shinto shrines. The lines are slender, the edges beveled and the two legs supporting the top are light and airy. The Sea of Tranquility table – the name of which evokes the place where man first landed land on the moon – is perfect in both the bleached and charcoal gray versions. Available in four different sizes.
Martha Rocker and Armchair by Poltrona Frau
The Martha armchair and new rocking chair are authentic masterpieces of wood craftsmanship. Roberto Lazzeroni’s design for Poltrona Frau is based on the meeting of the two main elements of the frame. The seat and armrests form part of a single sinuous open profile. The curved and slightly padded backrest appears to float in the air but is actually fixed to the frame. The seat’s slight incline towards the back ensures optimal comfort and emphasizes the armchair’s dynamic design.
Sunset Armchair by De Padova
Part of De Padova‘s Time & Style Edition collection, a new partnership with the Japanese design house, Sunset is inspired by the iconic Spanish chair created by Danish designer Børge Mogensen in 1959. Each sheet of leather is processed in Toyooka’s famous bag factory to achieve the perfect amount of elasticity for ideal comfort and to better express a feeling of calm, relaxation and home. Choose a snow white or grey charcoal oak frame with either camel or dark brown tanned cowhide leather.
Greene Sofa by Living Divani
Though it debuted in 2019, this is one of our favorite new sofas from Living Divani. Designed by David Lopez Quincoces, Greene is a sofa in fixed measures and defined by gentle curves for a relaxed and casual proposal. A structured, yet soft perimeter, welcomes ample cushions while standing on slender feet restating once again the attention toward every small detail.
Times Lounge by Poltrona Frau
The design principles that make Poltrona Frau‘s Times bed unique are revisited in the Times lounge to create a timeless new armchair that combines an advanced construction technique with understated and mellow contemporary aesthetics. Designed by Spalvieri & Del Ciotto for Poltrona Frau, the lounge has a sophisticated and ultra-light structure which naturally assumes its covered forms like a tailored suit making it soft and welcoming.
Ripamonti Pod Chair by De Padova
Unconventional and cozy, the new De Padova pod chair by designer Keiji Takeuchi features rounded lines accented by double stitching that runs along the back. Ripamonti comes in a swivel or fixed version upholstered in fabric or leather. It looks good used alone and even better as a pair defining the corner of the living room.
Cerchi Outdoor Side Table by Paola Lenti
The Cerchi side table designed by Nicolò Morales for Paola Lenti enhances outdoor spaces with both vibrancy and transparency. The top surface is made of an extra-light, tempered glass and the base is formed by colorful majolica pottery cylinders of differing dimensions. The majolica elements forming the base are made and decorated by hand with exclusive colors by Nicolò Morales.
Viola Chair by Poltrona Frau
The Viola chair designed by AB Concept for Poltrona Frau has elegant lines that sacrifice nothing in terms of classic, yet contemporary, aesthetics. Viola looks as exceptionally timeless when used as single chair as it does when combined in multiples with a dining table. The wooden backrest also creates the armrest and is embellished with a weave consisting of 60 saddle-leather laces. Viola’s harmonious and ergonomic proportions, combined with a generous and welcoming seat, guarantee the utmost in comfort.
Islands Low Table by Living Divani
Islands low tables designed by Stephen Burks for Living Divani decorate living spaces in the name of a luxury that speaks of the past, yet embodies the contemporary. Available in three different heights and diameters, Islands low tables feature a lower, inner storage compartment that is accessible along the entire perimeter via a series of pivoting slats. Choose from a black lacquered, marble or oak veneer finish.
