Chesterfield Sofa. Dating to the 18th century, the Chesterfield sofa has an interesting story behind it. The fourth Earl of Chesterfield, England, is said to have been the first to commission one, specifically requesting a furniture element that would allow a man to sit upright comfortably so his suit would not wrinkle. The Chesterfield became a symbol of noble sophistication, and it hasn’t lost its intricate charm. This style is defined by its use of leather, rolled arms, a back the same height as the arms, tufting for a quilted effect and no back cushions.
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.
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.
