Tacchini is a philosophy.

Behind every object there’s a story and behind every story there’s a person. We fall in love with our products, their stories and the stories of those who have produced them and continue to make things by hand so that this story continues, is passed on by the designer to the creator and from the creator to the future owner of the product. And then it continues further.

SOFA FACE TO FACE

Face to face is an original reinterpretation of the sofa as a space for one-to-one relations, with two opposing backs and soft, feather cushions inviting people to sit vis-à-vis.

With its light, classical style, Face to face is conceived to take a central role and position, be it in contract spaces or in the intimacy of a living room. Covered in fabric or leather, it is sewn with contrasting cross-stitching.
