Cultured and informal, Miami Soft
Informal is a character of contemporaneity. This concept has developed, bringing an elegant detachment from the label to every sphere of everyday life. At Baxter, the collections that best express this sentiment include Miami.
Versatile, modular and defined by materials worked in line with Italian tradition updated through research and innovation, it evolves into the Soft sofa line. “A touch of extra comfort that once again recounts Baxter’s master touch when it comes to making extremely soft leather,” is the enthusiastic explanation from Paola Navone, who, returning to the existing, renews it with that sophisticated sensuality that she knows how to infuse into her designs.
Miami Soft, in the delicacy given by the velvety hand of the upholstery, finished with raw thread stitching, and the ductile flexibility of the elements with which it can be completed - the cushions in several sizes and the bolster pillows, one independent and the others on the backrest - recalls that idea of interior management photographed in the design magazines of the 1950s and 1960s. In that system of style codes in which architecture gradually left the Modernist current to adopt new solutions, at the centre of the home is the person who lives in it, and it is essential that the objects reflect their personality.
Hence the importance, which increased in the decades that followed, of the living room: the area where we receive visitors and which, if necessary, becomes the focal point of a party, but also that room which, devoted to private relaxation, is the beating heart of a home. Here, with Miami Soft, which is “perfect for indulging natural relaxation or conversation”, Baxter elaborates on and summarises this dualism: a key feature of the sofa is its double-sidedness, positioned in the centre of a room, it invites you to take a seat on your favourite side, to emphasise that freedom of approach to domestic space. Not only that, by moving the bolster pillow, the seat can be made longer or shorter, so that you can be completely enveloped or enjoy more relaxed comfort.
Once again, there is that underlying informality that is a statement of cultured disengagement, all focused on the wellbeing of the guest, and that pleasure we devote to ourselves in surrounding ourselves with intimate beauty, which knows how to satisfy us and bring harmony back to even the most restless of souls.
