Further international exhibitions and prizes followed. It is said that at that time only around 30 pieces of the armchair and two pieces of the sofa were made.

Little Petra is named after Boesen’s mother-in-law and the fact that this cocktail couch with a total height of just 75 centimeters and a length of 150 cm appears relatively small. Little Petra VB2 in Karakorum convinces with special comfort and proves not only to be comfortable but also extremely versatile when it comes to choosing the seating position.

Covered with the bouclé fabric Karakorum, the lounge sofa Little Petra VB2 looks elegant and noble. Inspired by the look of valuable Persian fur, Karakorum is characterized by a comparable look with a pleasantly soft feel, comfort and fullness. Deep on the floor, open and `embracing`, Little Petra VB2 embodies the essence of a lounge couch and enables all kinds of seating positions in any conceivable environment: lobby, lounge, living room, club, men’s room, nursing room, children’s room, bedroom, hallway, office.

“A lot of work has been invested to ensure the greatest possible comfort, from the seat to the upholstery,” emphasizes the manufacturer, who reborn Little Petra VB2 in 2020. The use of natural materials was also important: the legs of the chair are made of oak or walnut are reminiscent of Viggo Boesen’s love for natural materials. Litte Petra VB2 Karakorum from &tradition with a vegan fabric cover is a lounge sofa for the interior design experts from TAGWERC that has what it takes to become a favorite place.
