In our search to deliver creativity, we've compiled 10 sofa design styles, each hiding a distinct history in its visual trait. Whether you are starting out as a designer or are simply intrigued by the variety of sofas available, this post shall offer you a chance to learn more. These styles have defied the test of time as weel as could still be found in hous today. Dating to the 18th century, Chesterfield sofa have an interesting story behind it.
Some say nothing symbolizes 18th‐century furniture more than the cabriole leg. With the upper part curving outward together with the lower part 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), also slightly lower arms than the back. Other trait include continuous lines as well as no back pillows in the example above, though, the designer opted to add some, plus we really like the result.
The camelback sofa style is attributed to London cabinetmaker in-conjunction with furniture designer Thomas Chippendale, whose name strongly influenced the English decor scene in the late 18th century. A true camelback sofa have an arched back that rises to a higher point in the middle, as weel as again slightly at the done. Other trait include rolled or square arms, upholstery, exposed legs in-conjunction with usually no back pillows. We love how the designers integrated a camel back‐inspired sofa in the photo above, giving it an informal, inviting appearance.
