The elegant and extremely well-constructed Como Collection (2007) is built with solid steel frames and cast-aluminum legs. Contrasting that heft and stability are cushions that scream, “You’ve got to sit here!” with their goose feather filling and variable-density foam that’s firmer in front for support. Made in Italy.

Giorgio Soressi is a designer of furniture, lighting, rugs, ceramics and glassware (a particular favorite of his). His style leans heavily to the modern but is not bound by it. “To be modern but also with respect for the older, the past,” he says. “This is more or less what I think when I do something. I don’t change the world with a sofa. It is better to go into the world with simplicity.”
