Is this a fit for you? Then so is Gatsby.  “I wanted to create a model with huge, soft pillows that characterise the floater. But so it wouldn’t become too bottom-heavy, I counterbalanced this with a taut and slender frame, which is neither too thick or too thin”, says Eilersen, continuing: “Try to focus on the slender frame. Would your eyes expect to see such a frame combined with a thick, overstuffed seat? Gatsby is provocative. Instead of a thick, overstuffed seat, it is elegant and trim. And as a counterpoint to all these trimmed-down facets, there is gravity in the heavy arm- and backrests, floater look and comfort in the special lumbar cushions. The model brings together the elegant and the relaxed facets that typified the Gatsby period and style.” Easy to dance with Gatsby is a pure sectional sofa consisting of fairly few pieces, so it’s easy to dance with. The model’s standard base components make it possible to configure a Gatsby to fit the needs of nearly anyone. Grab a middle piece, which you can choose from two sizes. Combine with the end pieces, which are available in three sizes. Or use the corner piece to create a corner sofa. Gatsby’s seat is Eilersen’s world-renowned feather top, and all the cushions are our well-known quality cushions using authentic feathers/down.
