Of all the new products we released this year, the Case Study Alpine Daybed may be our favorite. Designed by Modernica co-founder Jay Novak, the elegant piece echoes the same sinuous curves and graceful lines as its predecessors, the Alpine Bed and Alpine Dining Table.

Available in over 200 fine fabric options, there are so many way to enjoy this beautiful piece. Here are just a few.
