The problem? There are so many names for sofa design styles that your head will spin. This sofa guide breaks them all down for you.
Types of Sofas
A Chesterfield sofa features a 19-th century English design with tight tailoring, a high back, and rolled arms. Chesterfields are typically tufted.
The camelback sofa style dates back to the 18th century, when it was first designed by Thomas Chippendale.
A slipper sofa is streamlined and almost ordinary, and it’s really made more for guests than lounging around.
A tuxedo sofa is one with no frills. It features a straight profile (the arms and back are typically the same height), but it’s versatile enough to be part of a modern or traditional room.
A French settee is delicate and formal. These sofas typically feature carved wood frames and stiff cushions.
