At A Glance:
Couchoid. The word speaks of a thing that's not quite what you expect it to be. Is it just a shadow, or is it the form? Couchoid is "sofa" mixed with "sculpture," with a dash of "beast" thrown in for fun. Like it was carved from a block of granite and set in place by the ancients, the Couchoid Sofa is ready to take over your living room with its undeniable presence and solidly minimalist shape.
What's To Like:
Oh, if you've looked at the Couchoid Sofa, you probably already know what's to like about it - its visceral shape, simple lines, and unity of structure are the real winners here.
What's Not to Like:
On the flip side, Couchoid's shape can be what you don't like. And, if you don't, you probably know it by now. Here, try the Paramount Sofa on for size.
The Bottom Line:
The Blu Dot Couchoid Sofa is a visually strong sofa that replaces the traditional sofa form with a wholly sculptural shape. If it were any more minimalist, it'd be made from a single material. Complement it with the Blockoid Ottoman and the Couchoid Lounge Chair.
