What is special about an antique Italian sofa?

Italian sofa design has been in high demand since the early 19th century when Roman furniture makers created lounge chairs and benches for high society to rest and retire to. Fast forward to today and antique, neoclassical, and revival Italian sofa sets are more popular than ever.

Common design features in Italian sofas include gilt gold detailing, outlandish embellishments, and delicate carvings on mahogany or walnut burr frames. The upholstery used was of the highest quality, from elegant velvet to high-sheen hessian. With dark wooden frames, the upholstery tended to be lighter and brighter. Off-whites, ivory, muted gold, and moodier blacks and purples were used to create striking contrasts.

Does an antique Italian sofa fit in a modern home?

Italian-style sofas fit into contemporary interiors with ease. Use your sofa as a statement piece and talking point. While they may appear formal, they were built for comfort too. A high-back Italian sofa offers excellent posture support and is built for durability. This means Italian sofas are perfect for the busy modern family home.

For the ultimate in form and function, an antique Italian sofa is worthy of your consideration if you are looking to renovate, redecorate or refurnish your living room. Vinterior is sure to have what you’re looking for.
