While the other members of the Covent family balance the elements; the Covent Lounge Chair and Covent Sofa present a universe of warmth. The soft organic top of the Covent Chair has been extended to the ground, the bold frame replaced with the soft touch of an upholstered base and generous seating cushion. Showcasing the expert detailing and craftsmanship that comes with a range produced solely in Denmark, this pair invites you to nestle within and feel the tenderness of each upholstered surface.

The Covent Sofa is available in a deep and narrow seat depth.

    Kvadrat Floyd

    By Åsa Pärson

    Floyd is a discreet and precise upholstery textile designed by Åsa Pärson. It offers an optimal combination of manmade and natural materials: the durability of polyester yarns with the natural expression of undyed wool yarns.

    The wool yarns, which are processed as little as possible, give the surface of Floyd a subtly striated look. This effect is emphasised by the solid, bolder colours of the polyester yarns.

    Kvadrat Merit

    By Maharam Design Studio

    Merit is an upholstery textile designed by Maharam Design Studio. Predominantly crafted from recycled material, it offers a rich texture and the pronounced colour depth traditionally associated with wool.

    Merit has a soft, dimensional surface which is due to the use of voluminous yarns held in place by fine mélange yarns un its construction. Weathered and solid fibre effects are produced using two different types of dye, which delivers eye-catching colour richness.

    The post-consumer recycled polyester used in the production of Merit is made from fibres derived from consumer waste, which has been used, disposed of, and diverted from landfills. These are reprocessed, spun into yarn, and then woven and dyed.

    Kvadrat Remix 3

    By Giulio Ridolfo

    Remix 3 is an elegant upholstery textile distinguished by exceptional depth of colour, designed by Giulio Ridolfo. It comes in 23 new hues, adding to an already expansive palette which now offers a total of 72 sophisticated colourways.

    Remix 3 looks unicoloured from a distance but reveals subtle details and colour contrasts when viewed close-up. The textile features a tight, minimalistic weave, and derives its lively colour play from a combination of two different mélange yarns, which each combine up to three hues.

    Kvadrat Fiord 2

    By Louise Sigvardt & Tone Barnung

    Fiord is a versatile woollen upholstery textile with a subtle three-dimensional look. Originally designed by Norwegian designer Tone Barnung, it comes in refreshed colours created in collaboration with Louise Sigvardt.

    The construction of Fiord combines a mélange yarn with a unicoloured yarn that creates pearl-like dots that play across the textile’s surface. This sophisticated expression reflects a key source of inspiration behind the design: moonlight glittering like pearls on the rippling waters of a Norwegian fjord.

    Kvadrat Harald 3

    By Raf Simons & Fanny Aronsen

    A closely-woven, very short-pile velour, Harald brings the fresh, soft texture of cotton to a directionless velvety textile. The intense colour offered by this matte velour places the focus strongly onto the silhouette of the upholstered object, emphasising its shape and contours.

    Originally designed by Fanny Aronsen, Harald comes in a new colour palette conceived by Raf Simons offering a particularly large selection of vivid keynote tones, including primrose yellow, burnt orange, raspberry, lavender, aubergine and dark mint green, alongside more natural tones. Harald is a durable fabric suitable for use as curtains as well as in upholstery.

    Kvadrat Molly 2

    By Åsa Pärson

    Naturally coloured Molly 2, an update of Molly, is an upholstery textile with a delicate and simple appearance designed by Åsa Pärson.

    The idea behind Molly was to create a basic textile using the yarn as its starting point. The textile is made from Norwegian worsted yarn. Naturally coloured, it derives its appearance from the way the yarns are mixed.

    Kvadrat Re-Wool

    By Margrethe Odgaard

    Crafted using 45% recycled wool, Re-wool is a rich upholstery textile with a sustainable profile. The textile is partly made by reusing scraps from Kvadrat’s yarn spinners in the UK. It is designed by Margrethe Odgaard. 

    ‘The idea was to create a both honest and environmentally friendly – textile with a poetic feel by recycling leftover material from Kvadrat’s own production’, explains Margrethe Odgaard.

    Reminiscent of colourful stitchings on a darker background, Re-wool features exceptional depth of colour, creating a dynamic play on the textile’s surface when applied to furniture.

    Kvadrat Divina Melange 3

    By Finn Skødt

    Divina Melange is a textile characterised by its lack of texture and nap and consequently the fabric accentuates the dimensions of the furniture, giving prominence to the colours.

    Melange means mixture. The original six grey and beige colourways are produced by mixing varying proportions of either black or brown wool with white wool. The different colours of wool are mixed before the garment is spun. 

    The additional colourways have come about by dipping the two base colours in bold, virtually luminous pigments creating coloured melanges.

    Kvadrat Hallingdal 65

    By Nanna Ditzel

    Kvadrat’s first textile ‘Hallingdal’ has become the archetype of woollen textiles. The very durable upholstery fabric was originally designed in 1965 by Nanna Ditzel, and is now available in a version with an updated colour scale: Hallingdal 65.

    Hallingdal 65 is made of wool and viscose, which complement each other well: the wool provides excellent durability and flexibility, whilst the viscose adds brilliance and depth to the colour. Both materials are dyed before they are spun, which highlights the rich texture of the fabric.

    Dedar Alexander Melange

    This soft wool velvet, a classic within the 2012 Dedar collection, is made in Italy using the finest quality Australian merino yarn. The extra-fine virgin wool (18.2 microns) is selected with extreme care and provides the velvet with natural resilience: it upholds the softness, lightness, warmth and dynamicity. Left to breathe in the air, the merino fibres recover their original humidity, re-inflate and heighten the weight of the velvet. The new range, which focuses on light shades and introduces 10 melange colours highlights the soft essence of the material.

    • 100% Virgin Wool (pile)
    • Made in Italy
    • Durability Rating 40,000 Martindale

    Kvadrat Byram

    By Raf Simons

    Made with pure kid mohair, Byram is particularly soft to the touch. A palette rooted in warm, pearly greys recalls a young swan’s plumage, and extends into cool and rich grey-blues. Contrast comes from the warmth of primrose yellow and gold, cool forest greens and dilutions of cochineal. Thanks to the satiny sheen of its pile, Byram exhibits colour in liquid nuance.

    Kvadrat Coda 2

    By Norway Says

    Designed by Norway Says, the fabric combines a graphic, textured surface and sophisticated colours to very lively effect: from a distance it appears monochrome, but when seen from closer up it reveals a second colour.

    Made from wool, Coda is woven in two layers, with each in a different colour: it is the hue of the base layer that is surprisingly revealed as the viewer approaches the textile. This distinctive construction also serves to accentuate the three-dimensional character of the fabric and the rhythmic pattern of its bold texture.

    Kvadrat Vidar 3

    By Raf Simons & Fanny Aronsen

    Woven from bouclé yarns with a regular loop size, Vidar has a deep, tight, large-grained texture that lends itself particularly well to the graphic use of colour in upholstery. Originally designed by Fanny Aronsen, Vidar has been re-coloured by Raf Simons, with shades ranging from fresh jade green, raspberry pink and iris blue through to brick and earth tones, and easy neutrals.

    The gentle satin surface finish of the weave contrasts with the deep shadowy tones in the depths, giving a multifaceted richness to the intense colours in the range. Tightly woven, without the irregularities of the other bouclé fabrics within this collection, Vidar has an inviting texture, which variously recalls blackberries, orange peel or the comforting close-knit texture of a favourite sweater.
