Arpège modular sofa is Liaigre's first customisable seating design

Dezeen promotion: Parisian interiors studio Liaigre has launched a modular sofa called Arpège that is designed to offer users both comfort and flexibility.

As Liaigre's first customisable seating design, Arpège is intended to be used as anything from a statement stand-alone chair to an extra-large couch for entertaining.

There are 14 different seating modules and a range of upholstery options and accessories available, ensuring it can be tailored for use in any space.

"Arpège offers a private island of comfort for any occasion, a dynamic new concept for seating, adapted to our every movement," said the studio.

"The made-to-order piece's modular design suits a contemporary lifestyle, combined with an informal approach to entertaining. The sofa can continuously be reinvented throughout the day, to fit every occasion."

The 14 available modules range from one-person units to three-seaters. There is also a chaise longue-style piece that allows users to create corner or U-shape sofas.

Users have the option to incorporate modules with accessories too, such as those with armrests and lacquered or oak storage trays.

Each module is finished with the same deep seating and large, plush cushions that maximise comfort, alongside hidden oak feet that are used to link the modules together.

The seats and cushions are available with either leather or woollen-fabric upholstery chosen for comfort and durability. Both materials are available in four shades, ranging from cream white to deep Prussian blue.
