Avery Janella. Sofa. May 04th , 2018.
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.
Flavor Design Studio has converted an actual clawfoot tub into a comfortable sofa. Now you won’t have to deal with wrinkled skin if you decide to stay in the bath too long. What a great way to repurpose an old bathtub.
This sofa that looks like a rug is a great design, and I don’t know how nobody thought of it before. This piece of furniture is called East Meets West and it was designed by Tonio de Roover. The idea behind this “carpet sofa” is pretty simple. Although it looks awesome, I don’t think you could sleep very well on this sofa.
Knole sofa, sofas did not exist before the 17th century; benches were used on a large scale instead. The Knole sofa dates to the early 1600s, when an upholstered settee was ordered for Knole, a historic English house. The classic style can be recognized by its straight, high back and angled adjustable arms (in the old days, they were used as protection from drafts).Finials wrapped in cords traditionally connected the back and arms. Even though the popularity of the style has decreased, you can still find Knole sofas in modern houses, adding a charming classic touch.
