Great sitting comfort characterizes table bench Charlie, which like bookcase Charlie was named after the French magazine Charlie Hebdo. The back is not too high but does have deep handrails, which means that various sitting and even lying positions are possible.
Joeri Koolhoven, “‘Sitting on a couch at a table gives a different experience than sitting at a table on a chair. It has something very homely. Starting point for this design was that you, when relaxing with a good book and a cup of tea, should be able to sit crosswise on the couch. In terms of appearance, I have strived for the strongest possible balance between wood and upholstery.”
The elm wood frame is sturdy and solid, and elegant at the same time thanks to the horizontal lines. A typical Joeri Koolhoven design.
For the design shown here we worked with a fabric designed by Chantal Keizer, the Est-1966. Of course table bench Charlie can be upholstered in any desired De Ploeg fabric.
