The Lido Sofa is a piece from Editions 04 - a contemporary furniture collection of collectible furniture designed in Toronto and handcrafted in Canada.

Rich fabric-lined seating meets sharp line for pieces geared towards the contemporary home. Old World production and attention to detail meet New World experimentation in a timeless collection that draws inspiration from the design studio’s international oeuvre.

From sofas that appear to be floating to small pieces that embody the handmade and the industrial, Editions 04 embraces aesthetic tension but advances personal comfort. The pieces in Editions 04 speak to the whole range of material brilliance.

Difference is embraced in Editions yet controlled, allowing for the eclectic tastes of the serious collector. The collections embrace the full range of materiality available to the modern designer and to the modern home.

The Lido Sofa appears to be floating in midair with extra-thick cushions and plush backing. Here the typology of a sofa is broken down into a series of extra soft layers and re-assembled. The bright colours available make it a centerpiece of levitating comfort.
