Remember your grandmother’s Chesterfield couch? Its old-fashioned floral fabric and frills may have put you off, but those buttons were a nifty design feature. Well, now you can have your own updated version. The Star System of modern sofas shown here were designed by Enrico Buscemi and Piergiorgio Leone and presented at the Milan Furniture Fair. They are part of the Giovannetti Collezioni, known for its innovative furniture design. It is easy to see why they called their collection the Star System, because those buttons are reminiscent of stars at night.
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.
