Responding to stylishly rounded forms, the Calligaris 2017 collection introduces 'soft' versions of their most loved dining chairs.
Additional padding and decorative tufting become a key feature for designs such as the Igloo and Annie. The traditional feel of tufted fabric has recently developed a modern appeal, by injecting texture and dimension into on trend fabrics such as velvet.
Accentuating Annie's subtle curves, the sumptuous new 'soft' variation features charming tufting detail on both the seat and backrest. Calligaris demonstrate how this particular technique, when paired with enriching jewel toned colour palettes such as deep blue or emerald green hues, prompts a timeless combination of plush glamour that can be infused into any contemporary space.

Previously featuring everyday fabric upholstery, the Igloo Soft transforms into an entirely different chair. This naturally spacious, deep rounded design with extra padding and an eye-catching quilted feature becomes the ultimate call for comfort. Embracing this typically 'old world' texture excites a charismatic aura in comparison to its more formal predecessor. With Terracotta set to remain a key colour trend, by incorporating classic quilting or tufting, this quintessentially rustic hue evolves into a luxurious vintage style accent.
Style alongside natural materials, including dark woods and creamy marbles for a blend of unconventional glamour.
