Vitra Alcove Sofa

The Alcove collection by Vitra was conceived of in collaboration with renowned designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec to create what's referred to as "micro-architectural elements". The seating born of this project creates an autonomous environment with tall back and side panels that are intended to envelope and buffer from immediate surroundings.

With minimal good looks, cozy seating and sound buffering qualities, the collections' "room within a room" concept has been highly successful in both home and office settings. This sofa with dark gray fabric, comfortable seating with plenty of back cushions and tubular chrome exterior frame not only looks great, it will expand your sense of home with a cozy intimacy. 

A perfect place to relax in peace or get some focused work done!

Real Design...Unreal Prices

Shopping with Modern Resale, helps you can get original and authentic design at a great price.

Modern Resale only sells authentic design from the world's best designers and brands. When you buy authored work created by leading designers, you know that you are getting an artistic original that will always have value. While the price of reproductions and items from home decor chains is appealing, they are not focused on originality, innovation, or lasting quality.

Sustainable Luxury

When you buy or sell with Modern Resale you are extending the lifecycle of each piece and reducing the carbon footprint.

The most sustainable products are those that are kept in use. While well crafted design is long lasting and physically durable, Modern Resale's curated collection is also emotionally durable. "Emotionally durable design" describes products that you connect with and that you will keep or pass along. It's the exact opposite of fast consumption which isn't good for our planet.
