Design by Brian Buchik.
Made in Canada by Room B.
The Shell2 Sofa is a modified version of Room B's original Shell. The sofa offers a higher backrest behind the bench style seating for a different overall style and feel. As with all of the Shell series of seating, Shell2 is distinguished by the molded plywood shell, which wraps the sofa in wood veneers. Its classic design, rooted in mid-century styling, combines with all of the comforts of modern seating to allow the design to fit seamlessly into any space.
Carefully chosen proportions and simple geometry create an exceptional level of comfort in Shell2. The exposed molded plywood sides wrap over broad arms that can accommodate sitters and their incidentals. All of the cushions, including the arms, are removable from the wood shell and are reversible for easy cleaning, moving and re-configuring. Inside, foam seating consists of various densities of high grade polyurethane foam and natural latex foam - a renewable resource that is more durable than other synthetic foams. By using higher grade foams, Room B achieves a longer lasting and superior product. Available in pallet of 8 fabric colors, with 4 frame finish options and 2 base finish options.
Select Natural Walnut, Natural White Oak, White Oiled White Oak or Dark Brown Walnut frame finish, with Light Oak or Dark Oak base footing. Then select from 8 upholstery colors.
With beautiful, quality craftsmanship from every angle, it's easy to display the Shell2 Sofa just about anywhere you like. This comfortable sofa features varying densities of high grade polyurethane natural latex foams. Arms and sides are constructed with exposed molded plywood, reenforced internally to create a strong and rigid frame. The sofa back is exposed in matching wood panel. The 'shell' is available in four frame finishes. A solid hardwood base and legs are offered in 2 choices of finish. Select from 8 classic fabric colors for the durable, comfortable upholstered cushioning.

Manufacturer: Room B
Room B was formed in 2009, when founder Brian Buchik decided to turn his passion for design and architecture towards the everyday products for the home and contract markets. The design and manufacturing company, located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, strives to offer good design that is timeless. They believe that good design is all encompassing: creating products that not only look good, but are also practical, affordable, and responsible.
As a young company, Room B maintains that "every little bit matters", undertaking positive approaches early on to try to lower emissions, conserve energy and reduce waste. Designing stackable chairs, for example, allows the company to better utilize shipping space, reducing the amount of transportation required, reducing emissions and creating less packaging material. Room B has also adopted the practice of using interchangeable parts in some of their designs, reducing production times, energy and material waste. All products are made in Canada, with an eye toward continually greening the business and production.View other products from Room B
