Devil Prada Sofa
Way back in the BC era, Egyptian craft workers reinforced their furniture joinery by adding stretchers or runners to the legs of stools and chairs. Occasionally, struts were also added between the stretcher and seat rail for extra stability and strength, which made for one strong sofa.
The raising of the sofa on a stretcher platform gives this an update to the traditional look, appropriate any interior. The tall back, subtle-textured fabrics, and leather combinations makes this a strong, handsome piece for a library, office, or great room with soaring ceilings. The new attitude is that it has to be comfortable, and the plush fabric welcomes any and all to sit down. The leather used here is the same that handbag makers choose for its feel and look of luxury. The color, the texture, the look is just that.
The idea is that furniture should last through the ages, and if you want a custom look where there are only one or two of its kind, this is the sofa for you. If you’ve seen the movie “The Devil Wears Prada,” you know that quality and creativity at the top lives for decades.
