  • To design a sofa that embodies the versatility of our Jasper, however, sits higher off the ground with slimline platforms for visual lightness and a contemporary look.

  • The cushioning is visually light yet supportive and features a distinctive long pull line. The sofa is supported by slim steel legs finished with a matte bronze powder coat allowing the furniture to sit lightly in the room. The truly modular range incorporates arms and backs of the same height with the bolster on the rear of the cushion providing the required back support to offer superior comfort within a flexible form. The sofa settings can be reconfigured to many different layouts using the signature King flexibility and same method as the Jasper system.

  • Kato represents an innovation in the way we think about sofas, not just in terms of comfort, but also lifestyle convenience with a contemporary users needs at the forefront of the design focus. Adding key features of other King sofas, such as storage, wireless charging, plug-in accessories, yet re-appropriating them to seamlessly integrate with Kato's contemporary and minimalist aesthetic has resulted in a world class sofa, firstly in personalised comfort, flexibility but also in a new level of convenience and connectivity.

  • The Kato range introduces a new signature double width chaise in two sizes. The double chaise allows dual person lounging that brings a new scale of chaise to the range. The grand version is a full double width and can be reconfigured into a double bed faster than other sofas using the bed brackets. The double chaises invite you to sit comfortably in true luxury, supported by our signature Postureflex and KingCell seating system together with feathery soft back cushions. The new range also includes an attractive rounded corner seat which sits beautifully in open plan rooms as well as leaving space for feature pieces such as floor lamps or plants when placed into a corner of a room. Like all King Living sofas, the removable covers are made to order and can be covered in one of the many options from the range of King Living fabrics and leathers to suit any look today and then be refreshed in years to come. For a contemporary look, there is the option to combine a leather platform with a fabric selection.
