Skyline Sofas: Nightime & Sunset in New York

Skyline Sofas: Nightime & Sunset in New York

When I prepped a skyline-themed roundup Skyline Inspired Design & Home Accessories last year, I never thought I'd be adding a skyline-inspired sofa to the mix.

Notturno a New York' is a limited edition (only 200) design by Piero Lissoni for Cassina. Nighttime in New York is a reference to 'Tramonto a New York' (sunset) by Gaetano Pesce — an iconic Cassina sofa from the 1980s.

Notturno a New York' measures a whopping 10¾ feet long! The images are a result of sophisticated computerized weaving — not printed. From Cassina: "The upholstery is in a tapestry-like fabric, replete with the smallest of details. A sophisticated weaving technique is used to produce 14,000 warp and weft stitches, generating extremely high definition images. The 3D nature of the skyscrapers is achieved thanks to a larger yarn, weaved together with the numerous coloured yarns."
