There’s a new kid on the block in the realm of Italian upholstered furniture. Chateau d’Ax, a 70-year-old sofa-maker with stores in over 80 countries, has launched its latest showroom in high-end shopping destination Palais Renaissance.
The showroom is home to the brand’s best pieces, which range from classic sofas to recliners. The Monaco, for instance, impresses with its adjustable head- and leg- rests. It is powered by a silent and smooth mechanism, and sits on high metal legs for a contemporary look.
The Green L-shaped Sofa (pictured) is unlike traditional, bulky sectional sofas; it has a slim silhouette and equally minimalist legs, which give the illusion that it is floating on air. You will also find the plush Bellagio, curvaceous Lady T and Nordic-inspired Eastway Chair.
The brand has been helmed by the Colombo family for three generations. Today, Chateau d’Ax counts an impressive list of designers in its portfolio. This includes Cini Boeri, an architect and designer who have worked for brands like Artemide and Arflex, as well as Karim Rashid, an industrial designer known for his luxury designs for many brands, from Kenzo to the revamp of Mexico’s Temptation Cancun Resort. These designers offer a seamless marriage between style and functionality for the sofas.
These sofas come in a wide range of fabric and leather options. Only leathers that are in full compliance with environmental standards are used. Other pieces to look forward to are contemporary- style coffee tables and floor lamps. Prices for sofas range from $6,000 to $25,000.
