A sofa is not just a piece of furniture. It is a synonym of relaxation and a strategic point for the coming together of laughter and family. Here are some of IDF’s selections for the right centerpiece of a home made to lounge and live in.



Striad Sofa by Herman Miller

Designed to deliver the individual appeal of a lounge chair with the versatility of a collective seating system, the Striad supports the evolving needs of modern life. Its layered construction achieves the ideal mix of structure and premium comfort.
