Introducing Our Newest Style:
Kent Modular Leather Sectional
Steve Sechrest, COCOCOHome – Co-founder, Charlotte NC
COCOCO Home is excited to introduce our new Kent Modular Sectional. The Kent features clean modern lines that evoke both its art deco roots as well as a mid-century modern vibe. We used blind-tufting to give the modular sectional pieces a quilted look, providing the sectional pieces visual interest as well as structure to the leather so that it will maintain the crisp contours over time.
The Kent style is comprised of only three pieces: a rounded corner, an armless piece, and an ottoman. From these three pieces an almost unlimited variety of configurations are possible. Two corners and an armless piece or two can be a loveseat or a sofa. Add more armless pieces and it can be a large “U” shaped sectional. Rearrange your pieces and make it an “L” to give your room a new look.
Each piece is built on our platform of all hardwood frames and pocketed coil springs, then topped with plush, long lasting, ultra-cell foam. The sit is supportive and comfortable with a just-right 23” seat depth.
The history of this style is interesting. Pottery Barn, not long ago, had a sectional designed by noted tastemaker Ken Fulk. They called that one the “Quilted Leather Sectional”. It did not last very long for a couple of reasons. They made it in China so the lead times were very long and the price was high for a Pottery Barn piece. They also made a mistake in the leather they chose to make their version. They used Mont Blanc Caramel from Moore & Giles. That is one of our favorite leathers and we use it all of the time, but that leather is subject to pretty big dye lot variations and apparently Pottery Barn did not take this into consideration in their production, so modular pieces were delivered with too much variation from one piece to another. At about the same time we were working on our Kent Modular sofa.
