Conceived by costume and set designer Ted Boerner, the Theatre Sofa is the feature furniture piece of Design Within Reach’s 2001 Theatre Collection. Born out of Boerner’s innate understanding of the human body and its relationship to space, this sofa’s tight geometry and studied proportions lend themselves to maximum comfort, as opposed to excessive layers of stuffing. The Theatre Sofa’s kiln-dried hardwood corner-blocked frame, unidirectional web suspension, and chrome-plated steel base support the gently angled foam back rest and seats. This sleek, tall sofa is available in a wide selection of fabric and leather upholsteries and would complement a bold floor lamp or accent table in any living room or reception area.
