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.
As many people look for sofas in showrooms, the 'size' mistake is an easy one to make. To avoid a bad buy that doesn't suit your home, bear in mind that these stores are often very large, unlike rooms in an average home. Rather than take chances, it's a good idea to have your room size handy when you're looking at small sofas, and preferably include your room plan with existing furniture. This way, it will be clear whether or not the sofa you are thinking of buying will look as good when it arrives in your home. As a rule, when it comes to sofas, inappropriate equals unattractive!
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.
