Lounging the Scandavian Way - A Closer Look at the Light and Minimal Plano Sofa
For decades, Eilersen has been known for their lounger sofas, which lines up with modern trends, although most sofas have been getting increasingly weightier. We've looked previously at what construction techniques make Eilersen the best modern sofa around. Today we'll look at one particular model and study the topical characteristics that make it such an appealing, versatile seating solution for the modern home. The Plano as it is known, rises up with a lightness that almost makes it seem to float and the result is a Scandinavian version of the modern sofa lounger.
A sofa lounger is known as a heavy, solid sofa with deep seats and soft cushions where you can sink down into and relax at home in your comfortable hideaway, while the outside world looks after itself. "A gigantic sofa with southern European temperament appeals to my everyday because I live in southern France. However, I am in this world to treat as many people as possible with sofas to suit their lifestyle and taste. Therefore, I imagined a quiet, light, Scandinavian sister to our other sofa loungers, and Plano is the lightest and most airy sofa lounger that we have produced," says Jens Eilersen.
The Plano stands and floats on round, high steel legs that are in keeping with the same light tone. The back and armrest are only 3.5" wide and almost seem to have the style of a folded plate that is thin and light, yet still strong enough to be the base for a sofa lounge. The most essential factor of the sofa’s functionality is the removable, shaped foam back cushions. They are available from 27.5 to 47.25" with a 4" spring – six sizes in all - and you can move them freely around as necessary, depending on whether you want to relax lying across it in front of the TV or relax lying down with a book. Plano’s seats are equally flexible. You can buy them with a spring of 4" from 55 to 94" - that is 11 sizes in all, which are available in both right and left hand versions. Therefore, Plano fits any room regardless of size, which is particularly suited to modern homes in the US with their open floor plans. The Plano is 39" deep, and the flat, sleek and lightweight design is emphasized by the foam and fibre filled seats, which gives the sofa strength and rigidity. Soft down filled pillows ensure that the look is cosy without being heavy. Plano works perfectly as a single chaise lounge, but you can also buy Plano as a finished sofa with two armrests with a total length of either 90 or 94.5."
Your home should be a place where you feel good. It is a place where you can surround yourself with things that you have chosen – because you need them, and because they speak to you. The forms, colors and styles of the furniture speak to your senses. It is therefore not important how a sofa fulfills its task. Your sofa should be both good to sit on and live up to your life values and taste for the aesthetic. We know all the feeling of being in a location we can rely on. All Eilersen furniture guarantees excellent quality, unique comfort and outstanding durability. “All the furniture, every little detail, is based on original craft traditions and innovative design,” promises Jens Juul Eilersen. “It will be very exciting to gauge the consumer reaction to this, our lightest sofa lounger so far, as Plano could well be the beginning of a whole new family of Scandinavian sofa loungers.”
