The leather sofa is very trendy. After years of preference for fabric, it seems that the leather sofa has regained its rightful importance.

Coronado is still today the sofa of tradition and evergreen design, the very image of relaxation. Its comfort is guaranteed by the springing that is achieved thanks to the presence of harmonic steel strips inserted in the structure of the backrest.
