Antonio Citterio

If I think about sofa I always remember Antonio Citterio. He is definitely one of my favorite designer’s. If I would need to choose one sofa, I would choose Michel which was designed for B&B Italia. I would pick grey fabric or beige leather like o the pictures below. Grey  and beige goes perfect with almost everything and design peace like Michel sofa will make that room even more special. Great thing about this sofa is also that is deep enought and offers you enough space to relax.  You can buy 91 cm or 106 cm deep. If you have space buy bigger one. Who buys sofa this days only to seat on them?  I don’t!   Michel also includes 34 linear and modular elements together with five different ottomans.
