Estimated Ship Date On or Before 02/12


The Tearoom Sofa was designed by Scottish designer Nick Ross for Danish brand MENU in 2019, as part of the Tearoom Series which also counts the Club Chair and the Lounge Chair. The Tearoom Club Chair was originally inspired by the famous 1904 Willow Chair designed by renown Scottish Bauhaus designer Charles Mackintosh.

Pairing the luxurious feel of full upholstery with a clean silhouette rooted in geometric forms, the Tearoom Sofa is as appealing to the touch as it is easy on the eyes. While creating the clean silhouette, Ross took exceptional care to imbue every inch with mood-lifting comfort. Beneath the upholstery, a wood and foam construction creates the ideal pairing of sturdiness and lush comfort. Timeless in its expression and execution, the Tearoom Series is well-suited to both period and contemporary environments. The Tearoom Sofa radiates elegant yet strict femininity with its embracing form. It will find its place in a multitude of settings, from exclusive hotels, clubs and lounges to private homes.

Nick Ross was born in Scotland in 1986. He studied at Gray's School of Art in Aberdeen, where he was awarded the Arts & Heritage prize for his graduation project in 2008. Later he moved to Stockholm where he obtained his Master in Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at Konstfack in 2013. In 2016, the collection that he created for the Milan Design Week was noticed. Inspired by his his research of the Roman accounts of Scotland's indigenous Caledonian people, the collection was comprised of several furnitures and homeware pieces. "By mixing storytelling with physical objects, it questions our current situation in which cultures are sacred, or that national identities are static and thus must be protected from outside influences" commented Nick Ross. The designer has created the Darkly Mirror for Danish Brand MENU and was the winner of Muuto's annual Nordic design award for his Tension lamp – a light that bends forward as if being held on a fishing rod.
