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 fourth type of sofa on our list is attributed to Thomas W. Lawson, an American businessman together with author who commissioned the model for extra comfort. If first Lawson sofas in story came also a back "layered" in pillows with overstuffed. Today you could recognize a Lawson by three back pillows as well as arms “lower” than the back (slightly rolled or square). But could see a lot different models on the market. You could find textile also leather finishes plus various embedded materials, including metal in-conjunction with wood.
Is said to have been the first to commission one, specifically requesting a furniture element that would allow a man to sit perpendicular comfortably so his suit would not wrinkle. The Chesterfield became a symbol of aristocratic sophistication, also it has not lost its complex 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 with no back pillows.
