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.
What’s not to love about this fresh sofa from Futé Design? The Croissant Sofa, part of the Bobo collection designed by Kenneth Cobonpue, is sure to make a bold statement in any setting. Named for its crescent-shaped form, this piece comes in both indoor and outdoor versions. The indoor sofa is made of hand-woven abaca, commonly know as Manila hemp, a tree-like herb resembling a banana plant.
The innovative SKiN Sofa was designed by Jean Nouvel, a French architect. The supporting structure, made of tubular pretensioned steel, shapes the double-sided leather with geometric incisions. This sofa appears to be lightweight and easy to move, but I’m not sure how much weight that leather can support.
