Catalpa Sofa

Starting at $20,750 USD

Our Original Designs are made to order by master craftsmen, with a lead time of 12-14 weeks. Make it yours by selecting your choice of fabric and wood finishes

Our team of Design Specialists are ready to answer any of your questions and help inspire you from frame to finish.

Our Catalpa Sofa is a French Moderne-inspired design, reimagined as a modern heirloom that is handsome from every angle, with an exposed wooden frame expertly coaxed into a curvaceous, architectural embrace, then clad in one of our Signature and Distinctive hardwood veneers. A tight upholstered seat back hugs the interior, providing support and a natural frame for removable hand-upholstered cushions. They sit on an impressively slender deck, designed with a double-bevel front detail that houses an 8-way hand-tied spring system.

Choose from a selection of Signature and Distinctive hardwoods with natural finishes. Click to view the Fabric Catalogue.
