ALVA celebrates the art of beautiful design. Discreet, sustainable and perfectly formed – this is how Hoffmann Kahleyss impresses us with their newest designs. A sleek and finely crafted wooden frame in oak or walnut and the softly upholstered cushions invite one to relax and unwind.
ALVA’s significant design feature is the triangle which is formed due to the connection between the sides of the bed and the raised hind leg.
