This Seat for one is the first model developed for a sectional sofa, we are still working on a corner version, so you’ll be able to create any sized seating corner.

We used reclaimed teak wood from an old House near Ayutthaya for this one-seater sofa, hand-welded extruded solid brass frames and 97% luxurious latex for the seats, and a down Cushion.

Note: Our Sofa Collection is also available for outdoor use, we then need to change the mattress and cushions and use waterproof fabrics.

Note: Our PT5 side-table works wonders with this sofa.

Bespoke

From Bauhaus to Neuhaus
Belgian designers Pieter Compernol and Stephanie Grusenmeyer,
founders of P.Tendercool, joined with French designer Jerôme Barrier
to create their PT70-series:
a humble homage to Bauhaus, Mies Van Der Rohe & Le Corbusier.

Yep! We stole from mies
We use cross-profiled extruded solid Brass rods for the legs, arm- and
Head-rests of our Sit-Stirring collection. We got the IDEA whilst visiting
the iconic Barcelona Pavillion by Mies van der Rohe, one of our all-time
favorites. Mies used this shape as supporting column. The cross-profile
is not only extremely strong: by - seemingly - straightforward cutting
and welding we can create shapes which are elegant, functional and
minimal. A leg supports the frame, curls around it, becomes armrest or
headrest, curves back to become a leg on the other side.
Pure, functional design.
Simplicity.

Luxurious space
With condo prices rising and Location, Location, Location
ever more the mantra of city life, “Space” becomes a rare luxury.
Our grandest PT70 3-pax sofa takes up a mere 220 x 80.6 x 68 cm / 86.6 x 31.7 x 26.7 inch,
AND doubles as a very comfortable guest-bed in seconds, just remove the pillows and bolsters and a perfect, 100% latex mattress awaits your guests, no folding, no need to move furniture.
Minimal space taken, no compromise on comfort & flexibility.
Elegant. Bespoke. Luxury.

Architecture
The all-visible architecture of our collection provides stability and functionality,
yet delivers linear, luxurious looks. What you see is what you get.
From all sides. Even from the back.
More and more we combine living, eating, relaxing in one loft-like space, the traditional living rooms are moving on, which means more often than not sofas are placed IN the rooms rather than against walls. Hope you agree most are outright ugly when seen from the back!
Very few sofas grace the center of a living room. We believe Ours do.
We kept the back low enough not to block your city or Ocean views and No Bulky Blob shapes!

Reclaimed wood
P.Tendercool is based in Thailand, ideally placed for some serious wood hunting and gathering.
We regularly go on sourcing-trips to villages and woodshops where merchants buy up vintage houses, rice-barns and long forgotten structures. While Thailand no longer produces wood, a couple of generations back Teak wood was abundant. It is our job to score this beautifully aged wood and re-use it for our furniture. Real Reclaimed wood.
(not the sandblasted machined crap many claim is “reclaimed”).
Which means you will find some traces of the wood’s past life: traces of old joints, some pegs- or nail holes we filled, some repairs to the wood…our sofas are strong and sturdy, but they are not perfect.
Just like we like.

Latex
We were blown away when matrass-masters Theptex Thailand agreed to help
us to soften our Sit-Stirring seating collection: we are humbled, and proud to announce our seats and bolsters are created with the purest, most natural latex, from real trees, from properly managed plantations, harvested by real people, created and processed by skilled workers in Lab-like environments.
More mattress-memory than even the best Memory Foam, antibacterial,
antimicrobial, anti-fungal, hypo-allergic are just a few perks you’ll enjoy.
Most importantly: our sofa's sit Pretty Darn Well.
Binge watching House of Cards?
Rest assured: Luxurious Latex, always a safe bed.
One down-side: reasonable risk of couch-potato-guests overstaying their welcome.

Feathers
All our pillows and cushions are filled to the brim with down and feathers or latex-flakes should you be allergic. Let us know which you’d prefer

our Sofa’s and Daybeds are designed to match our BLTs, our Bronze Low Table collection. Check models PT5, PT6, PT7, PT8 and PT9

Lead-time 12 weeks

Should you like to arrange your own shipping let us know and we will share the crated dimensions and weight.
 

Crating Rest assured. Your treasures will safely arrive on your doorstep. Inquire about our crate-quote and relax: each creation is perfectly packed and crated in custom-made wooden crates.We will send photos during and after packing. We have been shipping worldwide since 2009 and never, ever, had any complaint, reason why we suggest our clients not to bother with insurance, but this is your call eventually:
In our experience as former antiques-dealers, insurance company charge a premium and turn in Kafkaesque red-taped bureaucrats whenever a claim is filed…

Important notes
Brass frames 
P.Tendercool sofa and daybed frames are made with extruded brass rods and are 100% cut, welded, cleaned, brushed &finished by Hand. Which means they will never be machine-perfect and show our hands: Some edges will be a bit rounded or very slightly out of angle.
With the quick-dry mattrass and outdoor fabrics our seating collection can be used outdoors but be aware that Brass oxidizes: although we apply a protective, maintenance-free primer-coating, minor discoloration over time will occur. Antique dealers call this ‘Patina’
This ‘patination’ phenomenon is perfectly normal, inevitable and intentional.



Photos 
We take great care when we photograph our creations or produce our samples, but computer monitors differ, colors may not be exactly rendered and do realize P. Tendercool’s creations are finished by hand: some minor differences will occur.
Do check with us should you have any doubts. You are always welcome to pay us a visit, both our gallery and workshop are open to the public. Unfortunately no photo can capture the look and feel of the real deal.
