Avery Janella. Sofa. May 04th , 2018.
If utilized appropriately, lighting can adding warmth and energy to any room. Designers have made use of its effect in brightening homes, but have gone a step further by incorporating it into furniture, as in this sofa made of acrylic that lights up from within. The effect is stunning, as Japanese manufacturer Waazwiz proves. The soft glow of this illuminated sofa has a soothing effect on the eyes, especially while watching television.
This modern sofa by designer Manfred Wakolbinger is the first furniture piece that the renowned Austrian sculptor has created for Wittmann. Both work of art and functional seat, the Chill Out was inspired by the designer’s visits to the Orient and suites of the 1970s. This versatile seating unit provides multiple functions as a sofa and double recliner that can accommodate several people (a solo recliner also is available). The design features rows of hand-rolled cushions that have been painstakingly crafted to produce a sleek yet textural aesthetic.
An accordion chair or sofa made out of wood and paper, the Flexible Love is, without a doubt, the coolest piece of furniture in the universe. You don’t really need more proof than the video above. I’m not sure how comfortable the Flexible Love is, but I don’t care; I want it.
Cabriole Sofa. Some say nothing symbolizes 18th-century furniture more than the cabriole leg. With the upper portion curving outward and the lower portion curving inward in a gentle S shape, this type of leg is associated with the Louis XV period of furniture design. The Cabriole sofa style is characterized by an exposed wooden frame (often carved), and slightly lower arms than the back. Other features include continuous lines and no back cushions; in the example above, though, the designer opted to add some, and we really like the result.
