Here Thou Art, Romeo
Brainchild of Italian design maestro Antonio Citterio, Flexform’s Romeo sectional sofa collection is a perfect marriage of understated elegance and supreme comfort. Set close to the floor and with generous goose down cushions, Romeo’s inviting proportion caters to today’s more relaxed lifestyle.
Its thin metal frame lends a touch of lightness while its upholstery can be specified in any materials available in Flexform’s catalogue, from linen and cashmere to leather and velvet. Truly a versatile centrepiece that looks at home in any setting, from the sleekly minimalist to the lavishly decorated.
The Romeo sofa retails at Flexform Singapore, 200 Newton Road #01-01, SC Global Building. Price by request. Find out more at Flexform.
