All About That Base
One thing that can set your sofa apart from the generic herd of mass produced items is a compelling base. You can go simple and classic, sleek and modern or heavily stylized when you have an interesting base grounding your piece. Here you can really highlight some incredible craftsmanship, exceptional design and a unique twist on common styles. Check these out for a little inspiration…
Within an Arm’s Reach
Something that can dictate the entire design of a sofa is the design of the arm. This is not just an extension of the frame or a place to rest your arm while seated. The sofa style is often defined by the arm choice and the goal is to merge comfort and impactful design. Many skilled artisans in the U.S. are creating some incredible looks and their abilities really come to life when they present the design of the arm.
Shout out to Kim K. and J.Lo for reminding us that embracing shape can be a beautiful thing. This applies to sofas too. A sofa with a graceful curve or angular detail can make a beautifully bold statement. Not only does this provide an intriguing look but it can lend itself to the flow of the room or placement in an awkward layout. Don’t be afraid of an unexpected line or profile. Interesting design is always in style.
