This excellent outdoor sofa system from Extremis will have you slapping your head and exclaiming, “why didn’t I think of that?”
It may also set you to wondering, “who is the Walrus?” In this case, it’s outdoor seating that solves the dilemma of the soaking-wet pillow or the cushions that have been stored in the shed. As designer Dirk Wynants says, “The eternal struggle with ugly protective covers and easy-to-lose pillows is finally a thing of the past.”
The Walrus Sofa is an ingenious solution to the problem of outdoor seating in wet climates, wherein the cushions or pillows always seem to be sopping wet or stowed away safely (often meaning misplaced or lost) for the season.
Walrus shakes off the wet by “making the sofa its own cover.” The material is impervious to wind and snow and rain, while the comfy cushion and plush pillows are easily stowed away in the back: “Ready in seconds, the low-maintenance Walrus gives you or your guests instant enjoyment of the sun, as soon as it breaks through.”
Walrus is modular, with multiple sizes and configurations including arms, corners, and compatible side tables.
