Lawson Sofa. The fourth type of sofa on our list is attributed to Thomas W. Lawson, an American businessman and author who commissioned the model for extra comfort. The first Lawson sofa in history came with a back layered in pillows and overstuffed. Today, you can recognize a Lawson by three back cushions and arms lower than the back (slightly rolled or square). But expect to see many different models on the market. You can find textile and leather finishes and various embedded materials, including metal and wood.
The Home Sweet Home sofa offers both comfort and privacy. On the outside, it is coated and varnished; the inside is polyurethane foam with a removable leather cover. As you can see, the Home Sweet Home sofa is like a tiny room; just add a curtain for a private place to relax.
Cor furniture takes lounging to another level with the Lava Sofa. In collaboration with designers Kristen Antje Hoppert and Steffen Kroll of Studop Vertijet, the Lava is both a work of art and a piece of furniture. The possibilities are endless as the soft, upholstered mats transform even the floor into part of the sofa.
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.
