To create his Como Collection (2007), Italian designer Giorgio Soressi enlisted one of the most widely respected companies in Italy. Located near Lake Como, this family-run business is still producing best-in-class sofas and chairs for many prestigious retailers to this day, blending design, research, cutting-edge technologies and artisanal techniques. The elegant and extremely well-constructed Como Collection 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.”
