Most Popular Sofa Designs From Around The World

Hello, readers! And we have yet another article on sofas today, because, well sofas are interesting and they are no longer mere furniture pieces to sit on. They’ve become pieces of art and people are coming up with more and more unique designs as we speak. So in today’s article, we’re going to take a look at some of the most iconic sofas from around the world. 

#1 Dali’s Mae West Lips Sofa

We’ve all heard of Salvatore Dali. The iconic surrealist Spanish painter was so in love with Mae West’s lips that he crafted a sofa in its shape! Only 5 pieces were made and they are across various cities in the world, either as part of a private collection or on display for public viewing. Dali himself had admitted that they weren’t exactly made to be functional. He just translated his fascination with the actor’s lips into a piece of furniture. Replicas of this iconic sofa are now available everywhere. In fact, you can get in touch with us if you want one made like this!

#2 The Wall Climbing Sofa

Yeah, you read that right. We don’t really know what the intention behind this sofa was, aside from the aesthetic value. But we do know that the design is very popular. It is usually a single or a two-seater sofa which is designed for corners. One half of the sofa is placed against the wall and it makes the entire arrangement appear as if the sofa is trying to climb up the wall it is supported against.

#3 The Yang Sofa

Remember the standard representation of yin and yang? How two different entities fit together like pieces of a puzzle? Yup, that summarizes what this sofa looks like. This sofa comes in sets of 2-4 pieces, sometimes even more in the case of customized versions. They can be moved apart or fit together to form independent seats or one large seating arrangement. What makes them popular is that you can they are great as beds, single seaters and more!

#4 Bookshelf Seater

This is definitely a favorite of anyone who loves diving into a good book while curling up on a sofa. The bookshelf seater combines the best of both worlds. It is pretty simple structure-wise, there’s a seating space around which a rack or a shelf structure is constructed, allowing us to stack or arrange books in it. They come in various shapes and sizes and of late, we’ve been seeing some bookshelf beds too. Either way, they’re truly a great invention.

#5 Soft Ball Sofa

Remember molecular structures from high-school chemistry? Yeah, this should be something like it. A standard softball sofa has around 120 odd stuffed balls covered in soft fabric that is sowed or glued together to form a seating arrangement. They as visually appealing as they are comfortable to sit in. What makes them even better is that they can be reshaped by using minimal manual effort into whatever shape you want them to be. What’s not to like?
