How can a tufted sofa look even more elegant than it already does? According to Mindy Kaling, all you have to do is… untuck the upholstery?

Kaling posted a photo of herself on Instagram that shows her sitting on one of the most luxurious-looking couches ever. It’s tufted, it’s draped, it’s casual yet sophisticated — it’s something our design brains collectively need to take a closer look at.

“I just get so tired after slaying lewks,” Kaling captioned the March 14 pic. “THIS. SOFA!!!!!!!!” one person commented, and one simply has to agree.

If this sofa isn’t the Bohémien sofa from Busnelli (designed by Alessandro Castello and Maria Lagravinese), then it must be directly inspired by the 2010 design. Castello and Lagravinese mastered the untucked tufted look in both upholstery fabric and leather and gave the Bohémien sofa a modern look with a seat that curves into the armrests.

Sadly, the Bohémien is hard to get your hands on as they’re not currently being made new. Some secondhand luxury furniture websites have had a few in stock in the past, so keep your eyes peeled if this is a piece you’d like to add to your collection.

If you’re experienced in the world of upholstery, then this tufting project may be something you’re interested in tackling. The best part is that you just have to tuft without needing to staple the excess fabric to the frame.

This tufted, draped sofa is somehow doing two things at once — it looks like it could belong in either a classic manorhouse or in a modern city apartment. It’s unique, exciting to look at, and, as Kaling proves, provides a great spot to rest after slaying lewks.
