SOFIA COLLECTION:
comfort and composure

The Sofia’s intricate joinery took countless prototypes and more than a year to perfect. As we later discovered, it recreates an ingenious 1,500-year-old architectural design from Constantinople. Under the patronage of Emperor Justinian, craftsmen devised triangular, vaulted wedges called pendentives to cradle the massive circular dome of the Hagia Sophia Church on its square foundation.

Our design integrates the sweeping curves of the side and rear panels to frame the corner assembly. A conical wedge is cut with exceptional precision to fit flush between the sloping halves of the back legs. For strength, each leg member is mortised to hold the tenoned joints of the panels. Since cherry expands and contracts with the seasons, the panels are fitted into grooves in the frame so they can shift slightly without warping or cracking.
