You can always position a curved sofa or sectional in a corner in which case you’ll be left with an empty little space behind it. You can fill that with a floor lamp, a tall plant or some other suitable accent piece or decoration. Another option is to include the sofa or sectional in a circular grouping. Maybe you could pair it with a couple of armchairs or poufs to complete the circle or you could have it face a fireplace. Also, if possible, it would be nice to have the sofa or sectional placed across from a focal point or a window with a nice view.
Typically, the back is all one continuous piece without cushions and has an elegant curving line. This particular cabriole version includes jewels in the tufts for added glamour. It is a sofa style that can be as simple or opulent as you desire. Upholstered with a luxury material like velvet yields a much different design feeling than if it were upholstered in a more muted, textural neutral. The main aura of elegance derives from its overall shape and lithe legs meaning it will always lend a refined air to a room.
Regardless, this now-classic sofa has several characteristics that are always present: The back and the arms are both of one height and the back is deeply tufted with buttons. Traditionally, the arms were always rolled and the sofa had nailheads, however, modern styles are taking slight design liberties. This green Chesterfield from Abbyson Living has the suggestion of a roll from the interior side of the sofa, but still maintains a clean line from the exterior side.
