Antique Sofas: Passion and Taste

Antique furniture is a passion. Over the years, it maintains the unchanged charm of the history that characterizes it. A piece of furniture passes through years, generations, family units. It becomes an integral part of our lives.

Today, however, we discuss antique sofas: unique and tasteful furnishing accessories.

Firstly, let's talk about restoration, as with antique sofas there might be a need for some intervention.

The main characteristic of a restorer is a passion for their work, an important condition for a restoration to succeed within their abilities and knowledge.

The first step in restoration is to identify the technical-artistic peculiarities of a piece of furniture, namely its place in time, the methods used to construct it, and the style that characterizes it.

The History of the Sofa

In ancient times, furniture was not as abundant as it is now, and it was limited to a few products. For instance, the first type of armchair is found in the era of the Egyptians.

Greek and Roman furniture was based on small details, for example, armchairs were small thrones with backrests carved with animal heads in wood.

Speaking of the Roman era, the legs of chairs, armchairs, and tables were substituted with lion paws, starting a motif that would recur in classic furniture of all ages.

In the XNUMXth century, Baroque art began to emerge, bringing new techniques: the use of ebony in thin sheets and wood from various origins. Armchairs with armrests were replaced by leather and cane armchairs.

Under Louis XV, there were the marquise (a two-seater armchair) and special swivel chairs for dressing tables. The voyeuse, on the other hand, was a chair with a wide and padded upper part of the backrest.

It also served a function similar to English chairs, called 'library' chairs, because one would sit astride them, resting the reading book on the backrest.

The Real Spread of Sofas 

The first sofas or small sofas, like armchairs, took on rectilinear forms, with the use of classic decorations dating back to the 1700s.

The 20th century marked the true development of the sofa. The novelty was that the sofa was no longer made from a single block but created from multiple elements that could be grouped and assembled together.

Antique sofas mark this passage of time, and your home, with an antique sofa, will be contemporary but with a charm all its own.
