The Tokyo Modular Sofa

Introducing the latest addition to Woodwright's soft furnishings family

16 Jan 2019

No longer do people want a ‘standard’ sofa or couch ‘off the shelf’. These days, when it comes to furniture and soft furnishings, ‘personalization’ is the word of the day. As interior spaces get more minimalistic and space efficient, more and more New Zealanders are requiring furniture that complements their interior space without making it too cluttered.

This is why the Woodwrights Tokyo Sofa was designed. The Tokyo Sofa is a super sophisticated, yet sleek Modular sofa featuring clean lines, a solid timber frame and plush feather pearl wrapped seat cushions. The clean, elegant form of the sofa combined with the exposed timber structure create an elegant yet super functional statement piece, bringing a modern and clean aesthetic to your living space.

The design inspiration for this sofa came from Tokyo living, where space is maximised to give a room a spacious, airy feel. In Tokyo, “it does not appear to be a ‘maximise floor area at all cost’ approach to design, but rather a more considered approach to where space is dedicated to the quality of that spatial experience” – Hecker Guthrie. This is exactly what the Tokyo Sofa delivers.

The versatility of the Tokyo Sofa is unlike most other typical lounge sofas. With over 20 different configurations to choose from, you can change around the sofa to get the perfect fit and style for your living space. Whether it be a grand lounge or just a small apartment, the Tokyo Sofa is perfect for any space. Keep your look fresh by switching your Sofa configuration around each season - whether you want a cosy cove for those cool winter nights huddled by the fire or a more breezy, laid back look for those balmy, sun-drenched summer days, the options are limitless!

The Tokyo Sofa is your stylish practical solution for both large and small living spaces. From larger families who need a five seater couch to young professionals switching between apartments and smaller homes needing an occasional chair or just a cosy two seater, with the Tokyo Sofa the options are endless.

The Tokyo Sofa is your stylish practical solution for both large and small living spaces.
Each modular piece of the Tokyo Sofa is sold separately so you can personalise your sofa configuration without having to spend money on the pieces you don’t require. This makes the Tokyo an effective and functional choice for those of you searching for that perfect modular sofa.

With endless fabric choices, ranging from sustainably sourced New Zealand leathers, plush velvets to linen composites, you can create the perfect sofa that meets your needs, bringing a 5-star resort luxury to your lounge. Whether you are after a distressed dark leather for a more masculine rustic feel, a gorgeous dusky pink velvet for an elegant timeless feel or a natural woven linen for that laid back, breezy coastal look… the Tokyo will fit into any interior seamlessly and you can get that piece of furniture you have been dreaming of.

Customisation doesn’t stop at fabrics, you can also customise the timber and finish. Choose from American Oak or American Ash timber and 20 different finishes. Whether it be blonde oak for that coastal look or charcoal ash for a more modern, masculine look. There are so many options you are spoilt for choice!

The Tokyo sofa cushions feature fully removable covers which allow for easy cleaning to ensure your Tokyo Sofa remains in optimum condition. If you see that annoying stain or dirty mark, don’t stress as all you have to do is simply remove the cover from the cushion for cleaning. Your couch will be looking as good as new in no time.
