Avery Janella. Sofa. May 06th , 2018.
Cor furniture takes lounging to another level with the Lava Sofa. In collaboration with designers Kristen Antje Hoppert and Steffen Kroll of Studop Vertijet, the Lava is both a work of art and a piece of furniture. The possibilities are endless as the soft, upholstered mats transform even the floor into part of the sofa.
The Do Lo Res sofa is a creative design by Ron Arad. It’s composed of several soft cubes of various heights, arranged in rows and fixed to a platform by steel pins. They are made of different-density polyurethane foam; a stiffer foam is used at the bottom of each unit in order to grip the steel pin, while softer foam at the top ensures optimum comfort. The units may be rearranged to form a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
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.
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.
