Stockholm 2014: the wooden base of this sofa by Swedish firm Note Design Studio extends outwards to become a side table.

The low table was formed by continuing the ash wood platform out from one end of the sofa, which is part of Note's Rise collection designed for Swedish furniture brand Fogia.

"The integrated side table becomes a bridge between the piece of furniture and the rest of the room," said the designers. "A surface for a still life, a favourite book, plants or whatever you choose to have close at hand."

Rounded soft cushions covered in quilted upholstery sit on top of the base. The collection is named Rise because the seat backs are shaped to resemble the sun coming up over the horizon.

Note created the range for use in both domestic and commercial settings. The high back is designed to shield the sitters from an open-plan office space that could be situated behind.

"It's a sofa with is own expression," Note's Cristiano Pigazzini told Dezeen. "We got inspired by the shape of the rising sun to create a piece of furniture that stand alone, a elegant centrepiece for both home and public spaces."

The sofas are available with or without arms, and the range also includes a footstool with a matching base and fabric.
