EspritMeuble 2017: sofas & armchair

Armchairs and sofas are the protagonists par excellence in lounge spaces and living rooms. That is why companies strive constantly to find new solutions that enhance comfort, beauty and style of the relaxing areas. Chic, stylish and most important of all, highly comfortable, Spain’s new designs are available in a variety of sizes, including modular corner sofas and the extra-large for a more luxurious lounge experience. With a great selection of fine fabrics and top-quality leathers to choose from, you can have them perfectly customised to suit every need and taste.


Exclusive mechanisms & designs. Originally set up in the 80s, the family-run ACOMODEL, a specialist in contemporary upholstered furniture (sofas, sofa beds, armchairs, relax chairs…), is strongly committed to providing clients with the highest quality available in the market. To ensure the originality and the functionality of models, they have patented a range of different manual and electrical patented relax mechanisms that include sliding seats and backrests, sliding chests and reclining backrests, reclining backrests and extendable footrests etc (Losa, Duetto, Adesso, folding arms, etc.).


Most of the models are composed of a pine wood structure and a DM board with steel spring. The seats can come filled with high density polyurethane foam and a layer of memory foam. The backrests are made of polyurethane foam covered with fibre and can have reclining, folding or fixed headrests. The arms are usually made of hollow conjugated and siliconized firbres. All high density rubbers comply with the toxin-free regulations, and the company is also certified by the General Secretariat of Science and Innovation as an innovative SME.

ASTORIA sofa and You&Me extra-large armchair. Inspired by the mid-century designs, ASTORIA is a seating programme that features a refined timeless aesthetic made of soft lines and charming decorative elements, such as the deep-buttoned backrest and the classic-inspired legs, a reminiscence of those of the 17th century. It also relaunches the former corner sofa with armrests on both sides and is complemented by three different models of armchairs.


PACIFIC O armchair. Ergonomic and ultra-comfortable, PACIFIC O features a round enveloping shape and removable back supports for a versatile use of the piece.  The round design of the seat allows the backrest to wrap the body and act as an armrest too. You can also configure it in different ways by putting and removing the back support – this way, you can get a very personalised daybed, an intimate You&Me, a comfy two-seater and even an extra-large pouf.


MANACOR sofa. This amazing corner sofa is composed of modules and footstools in different sizes so that you can create the composition that best suits your needs. Functionality is also improved by the multi-position backrests that easily adapt the sofa to different ways of sitting. Another plus is that the sofa is beautiful from any side, so you can use it to as a space divider between living and dining areas. Back cushions are loose, they can be removed and put in whatever position you feel comfortable.


The firm will anticipate in Paris some of the launches for the 2018 season, such as the SEVENTIES Collection, a series of new sofa models totally inspired by the style and fashion of the 70s, and NATURE, a collection of 100% sustainable and recycled fabrics made from old fabrics, used clothes and plastic bottles.
