Avery Janella. Sofa. May 08th , 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.
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.
The Sitscape is a seating zone nearly 20 feet long. The form transforms the usual use of a couch; the design is based on specific seating positions and smooth transformations between them. Based on people’s preferred relaxing positions, the manufacturer generated six basic positions and formed a perfect fit for them. Consequently, the Sitscape provides familiar possibilities for relaxing.
This sofa is not for everybody; you’ll need some space if you are going to buy it. Designed by Joaquim Tenreiro of Brazil, the upholstered chair sits atop an expansive jacaranda frame, with green glass tops flanking each armrest. It’s big, modern and beautiful.
