About

Available with removable velvet and fabric or fixed leather covers. Optional small cushions are also available. Indoor use only. Available in quick ship. DIMENSIONS: D. 40.1", W. 86.6", H. 33.4", Seat H. 16.1" As an exercise in style, refinement and essentiality, Megara sofa features rounded lines of the backrest which smoothly flows into the armrest and creates a refined detail just before joining the seat: almost a cushion sinking into the backrest. A terminal element, a day-bed, an ottoman and a coffee table define the set to convey an idea of complete and timeless elegance. A left or right corner element, a central element with two seats, a central element with left or right ottoman, a low table in American walnut and textile structure complete the whole set, so you can rearrange your living environment by recombining and/or switching around the sofa components according to your needs. The different components and also a vast sampler of upholstery offer a wide range of choices and customization: here's a sofa which fits into different sized spaces and can easily satisfy any need. It was created for lovers of classic seating solutions, with a touch of originality. GORDON GUILLAUMIER was born in Malta and educated in Switzerland, England and Italy.

About the Manufacturer

Driade

Italian furniture brand Driade offers modern designs that are joyful, whimsical and slightly mischievous — words that might be used to describe the tree nymph of Greek mythology for which the company is named. Faye Toogood’s chunky, stout Roly Poly armchair and Fabio Novembre’s enigmatic Nemo chair — in which a backrest assumes the form of a human face — are just two examples of Driade’s eclectic furnishings.

Driade was founded in 1968 by brother and sister Enrico and Antonia Astori, and Adelaide Acerbi Astori, Enrico’s wife. Described by the company as a “factory of art,” Driade was focused solely on bringing distinctive and creative seating, case pieces and decorative objects to market in its early years. The brand sought to mass-produce decor and furniture that could also be seen as provocative works of art.

Driade's initial collaborations included Italian designers such as Enzo Mari, Nanda Vigo, Giotto Stoppino and Rodolfo Bonetto, to name a few. In the 1980s, the brand worked with influential and renowned designers from around the globe. In 1984, Driade partnered with French designer Philippe Starck and debuted his iconic Costes armchair during the same year. Projects with architects and furniture designers such as Ron Arad, Toyo Ito, Borek Sipek, Patricia Urquiola and others followed into the 2000s.

Over more than five decades — the company celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2018 — Driade’s fruitful partnerships have culminated in a vast catalog of chairs, sofas, coffee tables and other furnishings for the home and garden that evoke a unique and diverse blend of cultures.

Driade has also garnered international acclaim, winning the Compasso d’Oro award in 1979 and 2001 for Enzo Mari’s Delfira chair and ebony-finished, chipboard-top table, and again in 2008 for Ron Arad’s MT3 rocking armchair.
