Avery Janella. Sofa. May 06th , 2018.
Danish designer Phillip Grass‘s Accelerator Sofa is a sleekly futuristic furniture concept. With its jet engine-shaped armrests, the sexy seat is the grown-up version of a race-car bed. This minimalistic design looks awesome, but for now is just an interesting concept.
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.
Metallics like silver, gold and bronze became popular in fashion, and the trend also hit the furniture industry. A great example is the Hollywood Stardom Sofa, a unique piece of furniture that can bring a little Hollywood glamour into your living room. In spite of its clean cut and modern look, this is a sofa you just won’t want to leave, thanks to the four oversized pillows on its backrest. Made of Italian leather, this stylish silver sofa will make you feel like a star.
The fabric for the Pixel Sofa has been picked up by Danish manufacturer Kvadrat, based on a concept of Cristian Zuzunaga, a Royal College of Art graduate. The contemporary couch is sure to grab attention by virtue of its wide spectrum of colors. High-tech and creative types would love something like this in their studio/office.
