Stylish Streamlined Tuxedo Sofa
The tuxedo sofa is flexible, functional, and exquisitely detailed sofa that can be a good fit for home interior. The tuxedo sofa is thought to have first been invented in the 1920s, and derives its name from the same place as does the tuxedo, from the classy town of Tuxedo Park in New York. Along with other pieces of furniture, the tuxedo sofa is often thought of as one of the pieces that heralded the modern era in furniture. Still, many who own such a sofa or couch wouldn’t know to call it a tuxedo sofa, even though the style remains a popular one. The basic requirements of any tuxedo sofa are that the arms of the sofa are the same height as its back. This usually means that back pillows, and sometimes side pillows rise above the height of both back and arms. Pillows may be attached or loose depending upon the individual sofa; more often they are loose. Probably the most modern look, though, is a very straight, streamlined arm that is upholstered and may feature a slight amount of padding.
When searching for furniture, you can find vintage tuxedo sofa styles that will cost a pretty penny if they’re in good shape, or new pieces that are interpretations of the vintage style. Cost may depend on a variety of factors, type of materials used, brand name, and individual store pricing. Since the definition of this sofa depends most on the equal height of back and arms, any sofa that fits this definition is a tuxedo sofa. Length, width, and fabric choices have little to do with whether or not a sofa falls into this class.
