The Griffin Sofa by Ballard Designs will seat just as many people as the larger sofas, but the design itself is why the overall dimensions are smaller (slim arms/back).
The Landon Sofa by Pottery Barn
The last five years has brought about a change in upholstery styles. I am seeing two very defined trends-one celebrates clean, modern lines without sacrificing comfort and tends to be smaller scale, the other incorporates vintage/historic inspired style but less fussy.
Bromeliad Sofa by Fiore Interiors
I was pleasantly surprised by the latest bix box catalogs-Ballard Designs, Pottery Barn, and West Elm. Normally for "big box" stores I head to ZGallerie. Nice to see the rest catching up. The New Normal is now mainstream, ie safe.
Pottery Barn finally got on board with the Chesterfield! I have been blogging about this style sofa for a long time! Catch up here.
Even the slipcovered look is now more tailored. Solano by Pottery Barn
