Anna Deyerling

The 2 Minute Interview

Anna Deyerling loves Sofas. So much that she decided to make them herself. And they are brilliant! The label Sitzfeldt, which she runs together with her brother Clemens Deyerling and a common friend Julius Martini, does not only produce wonderful creations such as the red dot award winning Cube sofa – which with good reason has found its way into our lounge – but is also something like the land of milk and honey for the spoilt big-city-backside. Sitzfeldt sofas are lovely AND comfortable. That actually is rather remarkable. ;-) Perfect conditions should you be pregnant and forced to lounge around aloooooooooot. Speaking of which – Anna is about to have baby number two. We wish her all the best! P.S. How DO they all manage?
