Avery Janella. Sofa. May 04th , 2018.
Tuxedo Sofa. Borrowing its name from the town of Tuxedo Park in New York, the tuxedo sofa is considered one of the hints signaling modernism in the 1920s. The style is defined by arms the same height as the back (usually taller than other sofa designs mentioned in this post), inspiring glamor and elegance. The first versions of the sofa came with a single row of tufts and exposed legs. Pillows are optional but add comfort, especially to a couch with high arms.
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.
Behind the Wall is a two-sided piece of furniture designed by Jordi Canudas that acts as both wall and sofa. It offers a comfortable sitting area that becomes playful when users interact from both sides at once.
At first glance, the Phantom Couch might look like a broken bathtub that was made into a couch. The semi-transparent body, luminescent and colorful, is a sheet of milky PMMA resting on a tubular framework of chromed steel. Some people use large pieces of furniture to hide or cover up things; but with the Phantom, this is not possible.
