You’ve just moved in and decided to buy a massive Chesterfield. Wise move, until it arrives and it can barely fit through the slender door frame of your surprisingly rickety new apartment. Or, even if you squeeze it in, it’s actually too large for the room and you can’t do something like take off a third of it and place it somewhere else. This is where modular sofas shine. Jean-Marie Massaud’s creation for Arper is the Steeve system, which uses the standard modular sofa elements of a bench, armchair and sofa to allow you to create the set-up of your dreams (aka one that’ll fit through your door). The Steeve comes in a wide range of finishes, so you can ensure that it complements your table, which complements the bookstand, which complements the David Lynch poster you have on your wall. It's all connected. The Steeve will be available at the end of this year.
