Your sofa is a functional, multipurpose item. It’s somewhere to lounge and stretch out, to watch TV or read a book, to catch up on work, entertain friends and family, perhaps even to fall asleep. Your sofa is also one of the largest items in your home and therefore a purchase takes much thought and consideration - for example what size, shape, colour and materials do you want. And besides the practicalities of a sofa, the aesthetic is paramount. There is nothing worse than a badly chosen and poorly designed sofa, where it dominates a room, clashes with the interior and is devoid of any personality.

Having the ability to customise a sofa to suit your environment is always a useful thing. Bespoke sofas are inevitably expensive, but their longevity and utility more than outweighs the cost. Often people are reluctant to invest in good design, opting for a cheaper alternative. Yet buying budget sofas is a false economy, as you will replace them much more often.

The new CONNECT sofa from Danish company Muuto is a smart, clean and beautifully designed modular system. You can choose from nine different modules, thus enabling you to customise your ideal sofa setup. Muuto, meaning new perspective, is a company building upon Scandinavia’s unique and world-renowned design heritage. It speaks to the concept of “New Nordic” and encourages its handpicked designers to “express their individual story through everyday objects”.

Explaining the sofa’s design, the designer’s Anderssen & Voll say - “Connect is a modular seating system based on the idea of finding perfect proportional connections between the different components of a sofa. The design shows a precise attention to details and has references to architectural principals (sic) derived from modernism. We think the sleek long lines give the sofa a modern yet timeless expression”.

Muuto’s designs imbue integrity and simplicity, offering a clean Nordic aesthetic. They are visual design statements that add an element of panache to any modern contemporary space. This new sofa design is thus a worthy addition to Muuto’s collection.
