ARTLESS Up Solutions were the product of a desire as much as it was a need. In the unfulfilled search for the perfect sofa, the only solution was to design one from scratch. We liked the Danish modern sofas and mid-century American sofas, but both proved far from ideal. The shape of the Danes was great, while their fabrics seemed too rough. The American sofas seemed a bit too stiff, designed more for the corporate world than for the home. Aesthetics seemed adequate but the seating was always a bit hard. We designed an aesthetically pleasing sofa without sacrificing comfort, and with soft yet resistant fabrics.
