Design Find: Modani’s Bergamo Sofa

There’s no avoiding it — the sofa has become the most important anchor piece in any home. And couches are particularly important today, and not just because we spend so much time sitting on them. Rather, because contemporary homes tend toward streamlined minimalism, there’s not much else, other than a bold painting or maybe a sculptural occasional chair or two, to make a “statement.” Couches, sofas, divans, have stepped fearlessly into that role.

We’re convinced that one of the best modern sofas  out there is the Bergamo sofa, sold by Modani, a furniture company born in the Wynwood design district of Miami, which now has stores distributed across the U.S.

What makes the Bergamo such a perfect choice for contemporary and minimalist homes is that it manages to walk that very fine line — yes, it is a bit trendy, but it’s also elegant, and enduring. It’s got a low-slung feel, which makes it modern, but sharp-stitched lines and soft cushions, which makes it feel timeless. As you can see below, it masterfully anchors a contemporary room, feeling grounded and airy at one and the same time, thanks to a design which does not show legs but still hovers just a bit above the floor.

And in the room below, which contains even fewer furniture pieces than the room above, the Bergamo again holds graceful sway. Again, it makes a grand statement but in a modern, subtle way. It has a way of making the chair and coffee and side tables feel completely unnecessary.

The Bergamo uses quality wood and soft leather with a supportive spring base that allows you to snuggle into the cushions without getting stuck. The frame is made of solid wood. Cushions are made of high-density foam. Webbing secures the frame and leather makes for a couch that can stand up well to daily wear and tear. It reclines, with both a reclining headrest and seat, for maximum comfort on movie night or while watching the big game. Because there is built-in storage space, you can avoid TV remotes and magazines cluttering up your sleek room. And the absolute best thing is that it’s completely customizable. For large living rooms you can go huge, and opt for the Bergamo Extended Sectional. Here’s what it looks like:

Or, on the other hand, you can go smaller, and opt for simply a couch with a left-hand or right-hand chaise. This size, while still roomy, is ideal for smaller apartments and condos.

And here’s what it looks like with the headrest up and the seat set into the recline position:

Finally, what makes the Bergamo such a perfect choice for modern homes and even “transitional” interiors is its classic color palette — this line comes in black, white, gray and elephant gray, which means there is a color that will look fantastic in every home and won’t go out of style quickly. Coming in, on sale, between $3-$5,000 depending on the size you opt for, it’s also a great value.

Kudos to Modani for carrying a quality, timeless statement piece!
