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 Do Lo Res sofa is a creative design by Ron Arad. It’s composed of several soft cubes of various heights, arranged in rows and fixed to a platform by steel pins. They are made of different-density polyurethane foam; a stiffer foam is used at the bottom of each unit in order to grip the steel pin, while softer foam at the top ensures optimum comfort. The units may be rearranged to form a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
This sofa looks like a giant brush with thick bristles, but each soft bristle is designed to give you a relaxing massage. It’s a very different take on the most common furniture that we see in every house. The concept is the result of a student from Bucks New University. The design might look interesting, especially to teens, but unfortunately this sofa is not too practical.
