Designed by Antonio Citterio in 1997, B&B Italia's CHARLES Modular sofa is priced at $ 10,578 The sofa has achieved world-wide fame thanks to its "light" look, given by the flat design and the "L-shaped" foot, which makes the Charles appear as if it "floats".
From B&B Italia
High seat modularity starting with sixteen elements per type and different sizes - this is the concept behind Charles. Linear and corner compositions are developed with these elements, particularly with chaise longue end units. Peninsula-style compositions can be beautifully arranged in the centre of room. A single seat-cushion, a series of free cushions placed on the backrest, a light picture enhanced by the pure lines of die-cast aluminium feet make Charles a sofa with a decidedly modern taste.
