Avery Janella. Sofa. November 02nd , 2017.
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.
There is no way you can miss the Canape sofa by Lila Lang. One half is an old-fashioned, curvy style; the other half appears to be climbing the wall. You have to admit there is something whimsical about this design. On one hand, it fulfills a function (a place to sit); on the other hand, it’s a piece of art. If you tilt your head and view the wall as the floor, you will notice the piece is almost symmetrical so it can fit right or left corners. This design was featured in an exhibition (Parcours Saint Germaine) in Paris.
Remember your grandmother’s Chesterfield couch? Its old-fashioned floral fabric and frills may have put you off, but those buttons were a nifty design feature. Well, now you can have your own updated version. The Star System of modern sofas shown here were designed by Enrico Buscemi and Piergiorgio Leone and presented at the Milan Furniture Fair. They are part of the Giovannetti Collezioni, known for its innovative furniture design. It is easy to see why they called their collection the Star System, because those buttons are reminiscent of stars at night.
Designed and created by Thierry Nahon and Philippe Landecker, LunaBlocks are based on the transformation and enlargement of the plastic blocks used in building games for children. They come in a variety of colors and configurations; all you need to build a custom sofa are some pillows or cushions, some creativity and a large disposable income.
