In recent years the traditional sofa design has undergone somewhat of a revolution. Designers are now seeing the humble sofa as something more than a comfy place to sit on an evening, or as a statement piece to show off in your home. It is now being classed, by some, as a work of art, whilst also being practical and comfy to sit on, as a sofa should be.
A tufted sofa. A vase of fresh flowers. A chandelier. Are these quintessential feminine touches? Perhaps! What about traditional masculine accents such as leather upholstery, rich colors and chrome detailing? Today we ponder the possibility that it‘s not the accents themselves that make living rooms masculine or feminine-it‘s how they are combined with other details to create an overall effect.
Step-down or sunken living spaces have a long history that goes back to the late ‘50s. The style is making its way back to the modern interiors because of more practical purposes. This style of dropping the floor is necessary where raising the roof is not possible. The use of partitions, walls, or thresholds also facilitates smooth transition from one material to another, which is rather difficult with open floor plans characteristic of mainstream design.
