For The Socialite Family, it made sense to create an entire living room by designing the counterpart to the Cavallo armchair : the Cavallo sofa in beechwood and natural cane , made by hand in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Italy.
A tale of Italian expertise
Born of the unique craftsmanship of our factories in the region of Friuli in Italy, our Cavallo sofa is the work of human hands. The craftsmen of the villages in the southeast of the Udine province are acknowledged by the entire profession for the quality of their work.
Each curve, each finish is the result of several days spent in a specialist workshop to obtain the perfect seating . It is from the "horseshoe" shape of the Cavallo armchair, of which it is a variation, that this sofa takes its evocative name. Its beechwood structure perfectly follows the back, offering comfortable support for the spine.
Ideal finishes for a room that is both classic and modern
The Cavallo sofa is a combination of cane and bentwood. The perfect balance between the renowned skills of our Italian craftsmen and a timeless line that will always find a place in your home:
・ Natural cane backrest : a material that brings lightness, elegance and comfort to this sofa
・ Frame in beechwood with a black lacquer finish : a one-piece framework, a guarantee of quality and sturdiness
・ Brass feet : a material that is always in fashion and once again recalls the Italian origins of this sofa
A sofa for every taste
Used as a stand-alone design, mixed with other Socialite Family pieces or in a wholly Cavallo collection for a cane living room , our elegant wooden sofa will instantly find a place in both large and small spaces. As it is classic and modern at the same time, you can imagine it in a bedroom or a hallway, but it will work equally well at a dining-room table where it can easily replace two seats. For more privacy and guaranteed space-saving, the Cavallo sofa is also ideal for reception areas.
The different seat colours that you can choose for your Cavallo sofa will allow you to adapt it harmoniously to any type of interior decoration . Dress it with one or more Bomboloni round cushions to enhance its personality and give it a new aesthetic.
The leopard, a couture pattern imagined by The Socialite Family
"The leopard design was always part of the decor of my childhood" - Constance Gennari. The spirit of yesteryear with a sweet hint of the unique that led our founder and artistic director to want to create the first pattern for The Socialite Family. A character-filled design with an ikat effect - a special artistic technique that brings modernity to the pattern - that comes to life with cotton jacquard, adorning our iconic creations with added playfulness. This is the way our brand celebrates the eclectic universe of Parisian decorator Madeleine Castaing. An impertinent style with a strong emphasis that can be found on this animal motif created by our design studio with the help of an illustrator.
To embody this in our creations, we spontaneously chose an unbeatable quality jacquard, woven in an Italian factory in the Lombardy region. Give new momentum to your interior with this leopard motif. The Rotondo sofa, the Gioia table lampshade, the Bomboloni and Divino cushions: whether you use them as monumental pieces to make a statement or just sparingly as accessories to enhance the atmosphere, our leopard motif is nothing but a timeless favourite. A new classic aimed at enthusiasts and novices alike who want to indulge in wild and daring dissonance.
