Cabriole Sofa

This 18th-century, Neoclassical-style sofa is notable for its graceful design that curves from one arm to the other in a constant line. More traditional designs are often trimmed with elegant wood detail and rest on short, visible legs. With more sleek and modern versions of the sofa style available, it can successfully work in both contemporary and Old World interiors.
