Pelle Leathers’ Tanzania leather provides a superb tactile hand for the elegant and understated ARI sofa designed by Something Beginning With (SBW). “It is buttery and almost velvety to touch, and adds depth to the sofa,” says Lisa Vincitorio, cofounder of SBW with Laelie Berzon.
The ARI sofa is a beautiful synthesis of fine lines and sweeping curves. Its clean and modern design is accentuated by the single long seat cushion and integrated back cushion with softly rounded corners. It has a durable powder-coated base and is available in a choice of sizes and configurations, with the option of leather or fabric upholstery.
Lisa and Laelie selected Pelle’s Tanzania leather in dark-grey Hippo for its tactile look and feel. The pure aniline leather is produced from the highest-grade South German raw hides. It has a soft waxy finish that gives a raw matte appearance and beautiful tactility which retains the hide’s natural surface with subtle markings bringing unique characteristics to every piece of furniture.
The ARI sofa is designed for residential and commercial environments, with optional scatter cushions providing additional comfort, colour, texture or depth.
