Avery Janella. Sofa. January 12th , 2018.
Cor furniture takes lounging to another level with the Lava Sofa. In collaboration with designers Kristen Antje Hoppert and Steffen Kroll of Studop Vertijet, the Lava is both a work of art and a piece of furniture. The possibilities are endless as the soft, upholstered mats transform even the floor into part of the sofa.
Lawson Sofa. The fourth type of sofa on our list is attributed to Thomas W. Lawson, an American businessman and author who commissioned the model for extra comfort. The first Lawson sofa in history came with a back layered in pillows and overstuffed. Today, you can recognize a Lawson by three back cushions and arms lower than the back (slightly rolled or square). But expect to see many different models on the market. You can find textile and leather finishes and various embedded materials, including metal and wood.
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.
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.
