Aston is a family of individual pieces, including a sofa, a daybed, armchairs, poufs and chairs, custom-designed to furnish homes and “public spaces” with style and elegance, allowing the conversation to continue between indoors and outdoors.
Aston and Aston “Cord” share the same design roots and aesthetic language and are pieces whose compact size and graceful lines are a boon to creating innovative interior design projects that express continuity and consistency of style between interior and exterior settings. Source of inspiration for the Aston collections is the memory of the old-fashioned parlor or drawing room, reserved for receiving guests, where smaller-scale sofas and dainty armchairs were in fashion. Today, lifestyles have certainly changed but the taste for preserving tradition and for the measured elegance expressed by some furnishings from the past has come back into vogue.
Inspiration for the sofa, the armchair, the pouf and the Aston daybed is unabashedly retro; what they have in common is eloquent lines, a more conservative scale and the kind of painstaking construction that expresses time-tested craftsmanship.
The sofa features an enveloping back that is echoed in the lines of the armrest; it is raised off the floor on pewter color cast aluminum feet that underscore its fine design qualities.
The Aston armchair, featuring soft padding in the seat cushion and the seat back, extends a comfortable welcome and is available with or without arms.
