The New Tuxxy collection, sophisticated in style with a casual comfort perfectly suited for large open spaces. It boasts a Luxe 46" overall depth and plenty of sitting space for the whole family. In 45 different modular components, the Tuxxy is one of FFABB's most versatile furniture collections to date.
We sat down for a Q&A with our lead designer and mama of FFABB Celina Dalrymple and here is what she had to say about the newest addition to the FFABB fam!
What inspired the design?
With the goal of creating a roomy yet inviting sectional for families to gather on movie nights or for cozy lounging, I was inspired to design something suitable for modern West Coast open concept living. With a bossy and standout look, large tuxedo arms, comfortable cushions and a low base height, this Italian-inspired sectional is made in Vancouver with quality materials. Clean, simple styling coupled with tailored body and relax feather cushions make sure that it fits into any decor while allowing you to dress it up or down with toss pillows. The matching crescent ottoman (sold separately) adds its own touch of gentle curves and softness to the collection's square lines. A piece that the entire family can enjoy!
The Sectional was really designed for TV lounging and family rooms. In its largest sectional configuration, I think of it as a bit of a playpen or island. Plenty of room to nap and fully stretch out, build forts and live. The sitting depth is 28" and removing the feather back cushions gives a full 35" lay down depth.
We have an additional sofa with T-Cushion on the front edge and a slopping arm at an overall 41" depth. The standardised depth is suitable for most homes with a commonly appealing 23" sitting depth. The arms are set back for design interest making it less heavy looking from the side, as well as a slope to the inside arm for resting against with a pillow.
Where did the name TUXXY come from?
We love a good play on words! Tuxxy comes from the term Tuxedo back sofa which I have always loved so much. First made popular back in 1920's named after the Tuxedo Park in New York, the style refers to the back and arm of the sofa set at the same height. There is a carefully thought out proportion required as the arm/back needs to be just right. Not too low where the back pillow hinges + folds over and that the arm is not too high to rest comfortably.
We think we got it jusstttt right ;)
