L'Imprevu is a striking modern settee which, as its name suggests, is full of surprises. The most notable characteristics are the sliding, retractable backrests which can be manipulated into a variety of positions to encourage conversation and relaxation. It's also possible to transform L'Imprevu into a bed with a combined sleeping area of 160 x 200 cm. A bold yet beautiful sofa, each configuration is different and it's possible to specify the seat, backrests, back cushions and scatter cushions in different fabrics and colours. It is available online in their much-loved Alcantara fabric (please contact the showroom for more options).
