Create a Seating Arrangement as Cozy as a Sweater

The cozy, comfortable feeling of your favorite oversized sweater can be extended to your living room furniture with Mangas, a collection of modular seating pieces and rugs by Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola. The knitted textures and patterns intentionally mimic the look of sweaters to capture that sensation.

The collection consists of four shapes: a seating piece with a back, a pouf, a rectangular cross-shaped rug and a square cross-shaped rug.

These units can be put together to make one big, low-profile lounging space for a group, or separated into individual seats.

Available in a palette of cream, gray, bright yellow and a muted pink, the Mangas collection emphasizes casual comfort. It made its debut at the Maison&Objet design fair in Paris in early 2013, and is available through Gan Rugs.
