This is a sofa from our Sit-Stirring collection, bespoke handmade sofa’s and daybeds, designed by Belgian designers Pieter Compernol and Stephanie Grusenmeyer, founders of P.Tendercool, and French designer Jerome Barrier, our humble homage to Bauhaus, Mies Van Der Rohe & Le Corbusier.
Lead-time 12 weeks
A sleek seating collection of 21st century vintage. While our slogan, "We make tables, and we make them well." Honors us with an ever-expanding international fan-base, we felt we really should apply our expertise to a wider field: enter bespoke handmade sofas and daybeds. Crafted with P.Tendercool care, reclaimed Wood, solid Brass and luxurious Latex. Dressed in your preferred Fabrics.
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 favourites. 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.
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.
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 centre 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!
We are 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.
We were blown away when mattress-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.
All our pillows and cushions are filled to the brim with down and feathers or latex-flakes should you be allergic.

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...
Our 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 mattress 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.
