The David rattan sofa in just a few words
Our David natural rattan sofa, with its seat at 36 cm, is classified in our occasional lounge chair category. Its simple but robust frame made of natural unpeeled rattan makes it very mobile: light, strong and stackable, it will follow you effortlessly from the living room to a covered terrace, by way of the conservatory. It is amazingly comfortable, even without a cushion. We manufacture it for intensive use with large over-sized rattan canes and almost no binding (THE weak point in every rattan furniture). Ecolodges and farmhouses : here is the seat that mixes natural feeling, comfort and owners' serenity. The small extra cost of this reinforced structure will be quickly redeemed compared to another rattan furniture.
A little bit of history
This model is the armrestless version of the Olivier sofa, designed in the 60s and manufactured by the La Vanneire Caladoise, the traditional basket makers (in Anse in the Rhône) until 2005, when KOK took over, with their agreement. The David rattan sofa is the cousin of the Bruno model, and shares the same specifications: initially developed for the terraces of coffee houses and brasseries in Lyon, it had to be simple to manufacture, stackable, comfortable, and above all robust enough for intensive use: few bound joints and easy to repair, an unbleached rattan frame, more resistant to weather, a reinforcing cross placed very low down, and arch shapes and reinforcements everywhere. With its slightly lower seat, sloping backrest and armrests, this is the ideal armchair for user-friendly and hassle-free use.
