Avery Janella. Sofa. May 06th , 2018.
These two pieces, a rocking chair and a loveseat, were designed by Scott Wilson and are from the Purity line of sofas and chairs. The designs are characterized by highly pronounced curves. They are made of steel for strength and durability, and are covered with a polyurethane mesh. Although they look very modern, the rocking chair could use some armrests.
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.
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.
Patchwork is most often associated with quilts. Once a craft born out of economic necessity, patchwork quilts still enjoy widespread popularity. However, British designer Lisa Whatmough of Squint Limited has adapted the patchwork technique as upholstery material for her fun and funky bespoke furniture line. Just one of her chic furniture pieces will brighten up any dark corner. These are extraordinarily vivid focal pieces.
