Avery Janella. Sofa. May 08th , 2018.
Now, this is the kind of smart sofa that I want in my living room. Not only does it look great, but it’s also multifunctional: a sofa that converts into a bunk bed. It even comes with an integrated supporting ladder and guard rails. All you have to do is call up some friends for a sleepover.
The folks at Coffin Couches have managed to transform 18-gauge steel coffins (from funeral homes in Southern California) into designer Coffin Couches. At first, these sofas look like a luxurious piece of leather furniture until you realize they are made from actual coffins. Fans of “The Addams Family” will love them.
Mid-Century Modern Sofa. The term mid-century modern describes a significant design movement from roughly the mid-1930s to 1965. The sofas attributed to this style usually have a streamlined form with low, often square legs. However, expect many variations. It is fair to say that when it comes to mid-century modern (MCM) sofas, few rules apply. You may recognize them for their retro appearance, use of organic shapes and powerful geometry. One thing is certain: if properly integrated in a modern interior, their look will surprise and inspire.
Camelback Sofa. The camelback sofa style is attributed to London cabinetmaker and furniture designer Thomas Chippendale, whose name strongly influenced the English decor scene in the late 18th century. A true camelback sofa has an arched back that rises to a higher point in the middle, and again slightly at the ends. Other features include rolled or square arms, upholstery, exposed legs and usually no back cushions. We love how the designers integrated a camelback-inspired sofa in the photo above, giving it an informal, inviting appearance.
