It used to be that fabric sofas were the foundation pieces of overly-formal living rooms and overly-casual dens, either so tightly stuffed (and stuffy) or so dated and worn that they’re decidedly tragic from both a functional and aesthetic perspective. Today’s roundup, though, presents ten modern (and in some cases, retro-modern) pieces in simple patterns with smart (and occasionally sinewy) lines. Moroso, Kati Meyer-Brühl and Monica Förster have a little fun deconstructing the traditional sofa shape into something more complex, while John Lewis keeps things classical and everyone else creates something in-between. All, though, are worthy of being the focal point of any living space, and each looks rather cozy. Now, there’s something to sink into.
