Huit is French for 8.
Upright sitting seems a bit abnormal for this sofa
Huit Sofa is a design of Emanuel Laffon de Mazieres. Nice names!
Emanuel is a Frenchman who sometimes resides in San Francisco. According to his resume on Coroflot he was looking for a job, but from what I see that search won’t last long!
I wouldn’t be surprised if this sofa becomes a Style Icon.
