Leslie is a collection of comfortably inviting seating options whose perfect proportions offer a feeling of intimacy and protection while outwardly expressing a formal elegance. The Leslie family includesbergère, armchairs with and without armrests and a footstool. During Imm Cologne Minotti expands this collection with a two-seater sofa.
The Leslie sofa features trim proportions and the kind of construction that expresses the master-craftsmanship that has traditionally been a hallmark of the company’s products. The seat back has an enveloping line and offers superior comfort thanks to its Memory Foam insert. The seat rests on an elegant solid oak structure with stained open-pore Moka finish. The Leslie sofa’s feet are in Pewter-color cast aluminum. Thanks to its compact size, the Leslie sofa can be used to stylishly furnish both residential and hospitality areas where space is at a premium, such as lounges, waiting rooms and corporate offices.
Unlike the namesake chairs which can be upholstered with different combinations of materials, such as the outer shell covered in leather and inner shell in leather or fabric, the Leslie sofa can only be upholstered in a single material; that is, entirely in leather or fabric, choosing from the countless options in the exclusive Minotti textile collection.
