one of my first stops in high point is always to my friends over at 220 elm- they have a concentration of 'modern' showrooms that works well with my personal "mix it all up, but keep it modern" sensibility, plus, heinz kattenfield, the big cheese behind 220 (or the mayor of highpoint, as i like to call him) is just an awesome guy and a visit to high point wouldn't be the same without a chance to hang with him!
innovation... small world, right?
innovation, before i went to their showroom, and to be frank, after having recently shopped for sofa beds with a client, i had more than a little trepidation about having a convertible sofa manufacturer as a sponsor. i was expecting to see the clunky and traditional sofabeds i saw online, and here in LA and that made me a tad nervous. thank goodness my fears were laid to rest the minute is saw the below convertible sofa with its updated chesterfield styling:
|the addition of a matching ottoman turns 'old school" into a sectional! the table grouping features sustainably harvested american hardwood tops.|
|this danish modern inspired styling on "unfurl" is pretty hip and cool (no surprise as innovation is a danish company- part of the 220 elm "danish mafia" family of furniture manufacturers).|
|love the simple conical wooden leg|
|florence knoll-y, no?|
|kids & teen rooms always need a place for overnight guests, so i'm keeping this ultra-modern transformers-esque chair in mind...|
|unfold and un-zip...|
|and voila! a bed for one!|
