The Chloe Sofa

 preliminary-sketches1The Chloe Sofa”, is a continuation of my experiment in modern curved pieces of furniture as expressed in my last entry, the entertainment unit. I was interested in seeing what might happen when using the same concept of curved lines and creating a somewhat module form now functional for a person or two to sit within. “Sitting within” is really what I wanted to create for the person to experience. A sort of inclosed atmosphere within the sofa. Instead of sitting just on the sofa you are now sitting within it. Feeling enveloped in the warm rich walnut and cushioned by velvet. This feeling or atmosphere I wanted to create really gave me a chance to exaggerate the back of the sofa, creating a cocoon or “private” place to sit back into. The tufted back cushions add softness and high visual contrast to the dark wood. A bolster on each side add a finished touch. The soft cushions are finished with cording in the same rich velvet upholstery. 

My intent was to design a piece that would be used in a formal setting and have a strong presence. A piece that was not just functional but also sculptural.
