Tuxedo Sofa. Borrowing its name from the town of Tuxedo Park in New York, the tuxedo sofa is considered one of the hints signaling modernism in the 1920s. The style is defined by arms the same height as the back (usually taller than other sofa designs mentioned in this post), inspiring glamor and elegance. The first versions of the sofa came with a single row of tufts and exposed legs. Pillows are optional but add comfort, especially to a couch with high arms.
The innovative SKiN Sofa was designed by Jean Nouvel, a French architect. The supporting structure, made of tubular pretensioned steel, shapes the double-sided leather with geometric incisions. This sofa appears to be lightweight and easy to move, but I’m not sure how much weight that leather can support.
The Yang Sofa can be interlocked to form a sofa or a sectional. You can create a range of different groupings using up to four left- or right-arm sofas. Designer Francois Bauchet created this brilliant sofa for Ligne Roset.
At first glance, the Phantom Couch might look like a broken bathtub that was made into a couch. The semi-transparent body, luminescent and colorful, is a sheet of milky PMMA resting on a tubular framework of chromed steel. Some people use large pieces of furniture to hide or cover up things; but with the Phantom, this is not possible.
