Contemporary Australian home

Sculptural modular sofa

Retro meets classic, the Jam sofa is our fave sofa from their new collection. Playing homage to nostalgic influences, it has curves in all the right places. This sofa would look right at home in any style living room, from mid-century to modern. Especially as there are more than a dozen fabric options, including on-trend boucle and velvet.

There’s a resurgence of ‘70s design influences in interiors — and fashion — right now and we created a modern interpretation of a sofa with our Jam design. There’s an obvious late modernism inspiration but we simplified the design to create the sculptural sofa you see.

Beautiful and boxy

If curves aren’t your thing, say hello to the Block sofa. Bold yet minimal, the oversized design commands presence. And the beautiful exposed seam details gives this sofa a designer touch.

The deep seats and oversized arms of this sofa invite you to sink in. Making this sofa our top pick for a media room or large, contemporary Australian living room.

Effortlessly luxe sofa

Next up, let us introduce you to the Seam sofa which oozes understated elegance. Available in 3 colourways, this sofa suits coastal to contemporary, country and classic style homes.

The pin legs of this sofa make it an ideal choice in smaller rooms as they create the illusion of the sofa floating. And lifting furniture off the ground to expose as much floor surface as possible is an excellent design trick to make a space appear larger.

Looks aside, the Seam sofa provides the ultimate in comfort with its extra-large cushions. Also, it can literally fit any space with its clever modular design.

Timber accent sofa

One of the most iconic designs in the RJ Living collection has to be the Accent sofa. Sitting on a solid timber platform, it’s a considered and contemporary design that shakes up the sofa offering in Australia.

Available in more than half a dozen fabric options, it offers the flexibility and look of a custom design sofa less the price tag and long lead times!

The sweeping timber platform of the Accent sofa gives this piece its edge. It’s a statement design that still feels elegant and sophisticated. We love to pair it with a curved armchair to soften the linear design.
