Heimo, pronounced "hey-mo", is the Finnish word for family. A nod to our Nordic roots, Heimo was its name from conception, as the brief was to design a sofa for modern families. Nowadays, you decide what your definition of a family is - it could be a couple, a circle of friends, a nuclear family, or a patchwork one. Heimo is designed to be added to as your life circumstances change. The sofa consists of set components and removable arms that allow for a multitude of configurations. It’s also designed to be the cosy, enveloping space in your home – like a hug you can sit in.
The materials are designed to be robust and repairable. From the solid Victorian Ash frame with zero gloss protective finish, to the covers which all use washable or dry cleanable fabrics. Like all recent Koskela products, the sofa is designed to be easy to repair or refresh to keep it looking great for years to come as we aspire to create “future heirlooms” that are treasured for generations.
The bases of the sofas and chairs can be used for additional storage for things like winter blankets or items that don’t need to be accessed all the time.
