With its leather trim and high camelback style, this 93-inch-wide by 41-inch-deep by 41-inch-high Huntington House sofa calls to mind hints of the neoclassical. Though its Chippendale-style influences are clear, this sofa’s harmonious lines flow down to a solid modern-style base that rests on square bun feet. Nailhead trim highlights the lines along the arms, back, and front of this piece, and the two bolsters tactfully suggest the ornate headiness of the 19th-century Empire style. Two 22-inch and two 25-inch scatter backs update and soften this tight back sofa. The single straight seat cushion is stuffed with feather-light ultra-down for supreme comfort.
Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
