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.
Cabriole Sofa. Some say nothing symbolizes 18th-century furniture more than the cabriole leg. With the upper portion curving outward and the lower portion curving inward in a gentle S shape, this type of leg is associated with the Louis XV period of furniture design. The Cabriole sofa style is characterized by an exposed wooden frame (often carved), and slightly lower arms than the back. Other features include continuous lines and no back cushions; in the example above, though, the designer opted to add some, and we really like the result.
Flavor Design Studio has converted an actual clawfoot tub into a comfortable sofa. Now you won’t have to deal with wrinkled skin if you decide to stay in the bath too long. What a great way to repurpose an old bathtub.
