Backrest and armrest contain the pillows inside, that when tipped over in front the back structure increase the comfort of the sofa. Structure in wood, covered by shaped polyurethane with differentiated density / polyester slip cover. Backrest cushions in shaped polyurethane with differentiated density / polyester slip cover. Feet in gun metal grey.
