Infused with soft curved lines, the new addition to the collection shares the same friendly character and comprise of rounded shapes that embrace both one another as well as the user.
Starting as one square volume, the Cara took shape after applying cuts at two different angles. It’s hard outer skin holds its core of soft lush cushioning, causing controlled pleating. This provides extra comfort and emphasizes its rich appeal. Available with a low or high armrest.
