A defining feature of the Este sofa is the use of elegant, durable cowhide, a natural material that has the rare advantage of aging gracefully. It is the ideal material for accentuating the Este sofa’s enviable ability to transcend the bounds of time and fashion. The structure is made of a lightweight cowhide-clad metal shell that accommodates the single seat cushion as well as the armrest and seat back cushions. The sofa rests on an elegant cast-metal base that comes in satin, chrome, burnished, black chrome or champagne finish. The amazing versatility of the Este sofa is magnified by the many combinations that can be created between the cowhide structure and the upholstered parts, available with either fabric or leather upholstery.
