Modern Interiors: Ylla Bench by Aristeu Pires

Posted on by Lauren Moss

A carefully selected piece of functional sculpture for an open, contemporary interior, the Ylla bench by Aristeu Pires sits beautifully in this hillside home in Laguna Beach.

The Brazilian handcrafted bench complements the minimalist architectural palette of concrete, stone and and steel, with a gentle curvilinear profile that evokes the undulations of the surrounding coastal canyons and Pacific Ocean beyond.

Full height glazing and exposed structure not only frame the beautiful views, but also serve as a lovely backdrop for the warm modern lines of the design, allowing for ample natural light that highlights the subtle movement of the louro freijo wood grain.

Find more details on the Ylla bench at Aristeu Pires online or visit Sossego in Chicago to view pieces in person. Also, be sure to take a look at the Giselle lounge chair as well, who happens to sit in our very own living room.
