For example, the aesthetic contrast between the smith model and the Breton sofa can no doubt translate into absolutely new design ideas.
The Smith lounge system is available in one size and can be fitted with two different sized backrests which can take several positions on the bench, with just one move.

A few connecting coffee tables - made from either burled walnut or brushed porphyry - are available, thus resulting in unparalleled versatility and flexibility.
