Hemingway Sofa

Hemingway Sofa by Swan Italia

Hemingway Sofa by Swan Italia. HEMINGWAY is a modular sofa with a spacious seat, harmoniously combining maximum functionality with the comfort that distinguishes all Swan furnishings. A built-in mechanism allows for a movement of the backrest which modifies the depth of the seat, thus providing two different user configurations: a relaxation mode for quietly resting when the backrest is open and a more dynamic conversation mode when the backrest is closed. Volumes are visibly taut but, at the same time, fully reveal their pleasing softness thanks to a deep-button upholstery which traces a sumptuous decorative motif over the entire surface of the seat and backrest. The leather armrest of minimal lines contrasts with the generous volumes supporting the softness of the cushions.

Swan Italia Srl was founded in 1963, thanks to the experience and business skills of the Proserpio family. The company, specialized in the production of upholstered furniture and based in Vighizzolo di Cantù, has made an immediate name for itself as a reference point for the market, not just in Italy but also abroad and it has celebrated its 50th anniversary.
Its company philosophy is based on a perfect combination of efficient quality standards, meticulous attention to detail and technical production knowledge.

Swan is synonymous with quality upholstered furniture. It is a cutting edge company in terms of the research, development and subsequent use of new production technology. In fact, the company was one of the first in the sector to use highly innovative materials, including cold cure molded polyurethane foam and fiberglass, as well as particularly advanced fabric cutting systems, such as laser beams.
