The leather Tactile sofa by Baxter
Some furniture is so dreamy you just wanna jump thru the screen to slide in & get cozy. The Baxter Tactile Sofa housed in Annandale, Australia, by Welsh + Major is definitely one of those pieces.
The story behind the Italian brand Baxter is one of rich heritage, tradition, and family. Luigi and Paola Bestetti came together with a passion for collaborating with family and a love for leathercraft back in 1990. Although not so long ago, the goal of the duo was to embody and honor a century-old entrepreneurial tradition which flourished in the historical Brianza region of Italy. As the brand has grown it's always remained loyal to its roots of producing unique collections with excellent craftsmanship.
Part of the brand's magic is in the materials they craft with. Sourced from artisanal Italian tanneries, the brand exclusively uses a full-grained, exquisite option for their leather pieces. Their craftsmen take their time working with the material to enhance its natural elements of flexibility and tactile comfort.
The result gives the material a perfectly distressed look that transforms all the piece's imperfections into unique elements of character, allowing the design to take on dimensions in unprecedented ways.
The Tactile Sofa takes on a deconstructed, geometric look that remains soft & inviting. We can only imagine you're dying to run your hands across that silky smooth texture. The horizontal piece is long enough to treat like a bed, and you'll wanna do just that with its soft cushion-y build coated in supple leather. The piece can be created in a variety of colors to fit your home, from a dark nubuck charcoal to a bright saffron.
