A conversation with the designers of the Bay Sofa

The sensational Bay Sofa

Created by Marcel Olsen, the Bay Sofa with its extra-high back and side panels characterises modern living.

Equally inviting in a Modern Home or open plan Business and Office Environment.

The Bay Sofa is instantly recognised and identified as a Modernist period piece unequalled in terms of style, comfort and comfort.

So, where did the design idea start?

We started by appreciating that there was a need in the market for a beautiful piece of furniture that provides peace and tranquillity for the user.

A sofa that offers a unique seating experience relevant and necessary to everyone.

High sided armchairs and sofas are not new to the market, they have been in production for centuries.

But to create a modernist period piece that is aesthetically pleasing and fully functional and comfortable was our prime objective.

How did the Bay Sofa design develop from a special retreat at home, to an office in an office in an open plan business space?

We started by creating a sofa that provides the user with an overwhelming sense of peace and quiet in isolation from outside surroundings in their modern home.

We very quickly realised we had created a solution for the business buyer to their requirements for a private and secure office in an office in an open plan space.

We developed this concept for businesses with the option of having two sofas facing, and then with a further option of adding a table between the two sofas.

Where are your sales originating from now, the home buyer or business buyer?

Primarily from the Modern Home Market where buyers are appreciating the calmness of their own private space.

Private buyers are contacting the design team to tell us where their Bay Sofas have been placed in the home for the greatest effect.

During the Covid lockdown their favoured use was a quiet haven to work in shutting out all outside influences, this has extended now post-Covid to our buyers enjoying the Bay sofa for quiet thoughts and reflection, reading or taking an afternoon nap.

How big is the Business market for the Bay Sofa?

Sofas in an office in the past were unfamiliar and untrusted.

The Bay Sofa overcomes this creating a positive, instant and spectacular first impression with visitors to an office who very quickly appreciate the style and function of the Bay Sofa.

So, we are very confident that the Business Market for the Bay sofa will be huge.

What plans do you have to really develop the Bay Sofa in the Business World?

The Bay Sofa is a massive boost for a brand in the business environment in terms of impact especially when a company orders a Bay Sofa from Marcel Olsen Bespoke in their own Brand Colours.

The immediate effect is stunning in the colours of a Brand, it generates a great team spirit, a certain individualism, style and a positive engagement.

To maximise that important first impression for a Company the Marcel Olsen Bay Sofa is the best possible statement you can make.
