There are more than 60 Kelvin Giormani outlets around the world, including two in

Hong Kong.

Established nine years ago, Kelvin Giormani specialises in custom-made, high-end leather sofas with excellent sewing and stitching.

You can design your ideal sofa in the gallery by picking and choosing from nine types of top European leather with more than 200 colours; seven levels of softness; and eight different stitching and weaving patterns.

Sofas are available in various

sizes and combinations. Sizes can be adjusted to fit the dimensions of your interior.

Model Opera is a single chair inspired by the Peking opera, which was listed in Unesco’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity

in 2010.

The striking colour combinations and contrasts of the masks appearing in Peking opera performances are perfectly suited to genuine leather “cut-and-stitch” graphics.

Chair backs have graphics associated with male or female opera singers. This is the first time the cut-and-stitch leather-crafting technique has been used in a Kevin Giormani design.

As the name suggests, the Model Piano has wide flat arms. The front of the lower back cushion can feature different leather-crafted patterns such as leaves or “zig-zag” patterns.

You can choose Italian metallic leather in gold or silver hues with genuine leather ornaments sewn in a zig-zag pattern. The ultrathin armrest of the sofa is the same height as the seat cushion.

There is a soft feather-filled armrest on each side, creating additional comfort when someone is lying on the sofa.

The ultrathin armrest is about 4cm thick, and it can easily support an adult sitting on it.

This feature creates additional seating in the living room when friends are visiting.

The Model Largo is a contemporary sofa with a clean design, whose name was inspired by the

sofa’s wide and spacious seating area.

An armless sofa, it features contrasting strap stitching on the edges of the back frame.

As a result, the back-front and back-side frames enhance the model’s aesthetics.

It is also finished in Italian vintage leather, which goes especially well with sofas, featuring minimalist designs. The velvety texture also pairs well with irregular shapes and forms.
