Il Salone del Mobile. Milano 2017 Design: Seating for comfortable times

March 23 / 2017

Sofas can really make or break the look of a living room. In the sitting room, in dens, in open plan dining/living spaces or in a main lounge, a sofa can set the scene and offer an incredible wow factor to any scheme. In halls 14 & 18, the Spanish brands will put on display some amazing new proposals aimed at bringing comfort and flair to living spaces.


The Spanish brands specialized in upholstered furniture have extended their ranges with new models of sofas, sectionals and armchairs that meet the trends and needs of new consumers. Extra-large, plush sofas are still on demand, but with homes becoming smaller brands have developed a whole new range of sofas and modular programmes which are comfortable as they are eye-pleasingly proportionate. Love seats have been around for years, but they are gaining prominence again. Provided with recliner mechanisms and upholstered with eye-catching fabrics, they represent a comfy escape from our busy, digital-dominated world.

As for colours, neutrals like cool greys and whites are giving way to deep jewel tones, like the emerald green, or the pastels which are always a wonderfully elegant choice. Patterned fabrics have been gaining momentum over the last years and they are here to stay.

Let’s have a look…

ACOMODEL Hall 14 Stand B41

Exclusive mechanisms & designs. Yesterday as today, the family-run ACOMODEL, originally set up in the 80s, is strongly committed in providing clients with the highest quality available in the market. To ensure the originality and the functionality of models, they have patented most of them, getting also the exclusive trademark.

Besides the fixed sofas, ACOMODEL offers a wide range of manual and electrical relax mechanisms that includes sliding seats and backrests, sliding chests and reclining backrests, reclining backrests and extendable footrests etc. New systems include the exclusive ADESS mechanism that allows two sliding movements of the seats plus a reclining movement of the backrest. The newly-launched DUETTO consists of an electrical sliding chaise longue that easily converts into a comfy additional seat with backrest or a single bed with storage option. Arms too can be converted into side tables, laptop desk or simply into a spare seat.

TOKIO sofa. With a minimalist design, TOKIO offers folding headrests, wide and comfortable seats and narrow arms that make it suit to smaller spaces. It is equipped with the patented Rolen mechanism that allows to change from fixed to relax system. Its wooden legs add a touch of warmth to any space.

LIVING armchairs. Upholstered in very lively patterned fabrics, LIVING is a set of one-seater and two-seater armchairs that can be used at home, in restaurants and bars. The seat shell is filled with polyurethane foam and is supported by a wooden frame that easily fits any environment.


To be unveiled in Milan: BOKÜ sofa. The sofa lies over a rigid wooden tatami that is supported by a metallic cubic structure. The wooden structure is provided with slots that allow the natural oxygenation of seat cushions. Inspired to Japanese culture and ceremonies, BOKÜ is a sofa for sharing moments with family and friends or to relax and, why not, sleep.

The fabric chosen for this model is a straw fabric with natural pigments that recalls the original material of tatamis.

You can turn two independent conventional sofas into a modern chaise longue opened on both sides.


Curved elements allow to create the most comfortable You&Me, an attractive chaise longue or an elegant curved sofa, very original and cosy.
