For a long time, the concept of a contemporary sofa could be summed up in a few words: sleek, clean-lined, sitting up on narrow legs, neutral, geometric. Well, at Salone, I saw more and more sofas that break that usual mold in a big way — the new contemporary sofas sit flat on the ground, tend to be more overstuffed, soft and comfortable looking while still appearing VERY stylish.Shown above:

It's refreshing to see the shift happening and interesting to see how the different designers/manufacturers embrace this look. I expect to see more and more low and soft sofas make their way into the mix here at home as well — it's just a matter of time!
