Avery Janella. Sofa. April 15th , 2018.
Sectional Sofa. Function is the main attribute promoted by modernism, and the sectional sofa’s modular components highlight it well. This practical design combines end and corner units, ottomans, recliners and/or chaises. Sectional sofas are a good option for contemporary rooms with high ceilings or lot of windows. They are also great for filling up large spaces, especially in formal areas; they aren’t the best choice for small interiors or powerful personalities.
Chesterfield Sofa. Dating to the 18th century, the Chesterfield sofa has an interesting story behind it. The fourth Earl of Chesterfield, England, is said to have been the first to commission one, specifically requesting a furniture element that would allow a man to sit upright comfortably so his suit would not wrinkle. The Chesterfield became a symbol of noble sophistication, and it hasn’t lost its intricate charm. This style is defined by its use of leather, rolled arms, a back the same height as the arms, tufting for a quilted effect and no back cushions.
Lawson Sofa. The fourth type of sofa on our list is attributed to Thomas W. Lawson, an American businessman and author who commissioned the model for extra comfort. The first Lawson sofa in history came with a back layered in pillows and overstuffed. Today, you can recognize a Lawson by three back cushions and arms lower than the back (slightly rolled or square). But expect to see many different models on the market. You can find textile and leather finishes and various embedded materials, including metal and wood.
This beautiful sofa from Urban Collection was a concept designed by Marta Antoszkiewicz, whose Bulb Table and Table with Chairs have been featured on Freshome. This sofa’s two heat-formed planks and minimal fasteners form the basis of this clean, modern design. Its cantilevered backrest is locked into place when you lay your weight on it, and its leather cushions slip in through large cutouts in the top surface, resting on the second curve.
