Vitra's long low sofa

Polder_sofa_pic2Vitra's Polder sofa by Dutch designer Hella Jongerius is a construction marvel. Buried deep within the foam is a wooden frame, which in and of itself is hardly exciting. But what Jongerius knows is that people do awful things to sofas. They sit on arms, on backs, on edges. The very things that break down a frame. So she designed it with wayward adults -- and active kids -- in mind.

This is a sofa that is supposed to be a set for every major event -- the first kiss, the lovers' romp, a kids birthday party. And Jongerius isn't taking chances that you won't deck out her set in style. Polder_sofa_buttonsLike it's name, the sofa is long and low-lying and surrounded by different elevations. Available in five different palettes, a subtle combination of colors and textures accentuate the elevations. The final detail is a random assortment of natural buttons attached with colorful threads.

At nearly $9000 for the 115" sofa, and $9500 for the 131", the Polder is not for all, but the sofa will be everything to those who do.
