The Julep sofa designed by Jonas Wagell for Tacchini is part of a family of upholstered seating characterized by soft and enveloping shapes and by a contemporary, romantic, and feminine allure. The Avant-Garde furniture of the Fifties inspires Julep with a nod to Jean Royere, from which it recovers its simplicity and majesty. The seat is fully upholstered and looks warm and voluptuous, yet light, thanks to its recessed base. The series is complete by a lounge chair, ottoman, chaise lounge, and island.

Today JWDA focuses above all on product design for Scandinavian and international brands.
