British sofas share a complex history, alongside the elite, the privileged and aristocrats. History reveals that the Leather Chesterfield Sofas and the fabric Camberley sofas have been commonly used in the confines of old institutions, government buildings and luxurious homes for generations.
英國沙發歷史久遠，很多傢具均以高品質、優雅為名。以Camberley sofas 為例。是很多皇室及政府官邸曾使用的高級傢具。
A room, in the 1900’s, would not be complete, unless the master owns a British hand-crafted sofa. Gentlemen, wearing hats and bowlers, seek momentary refuge in their respective morning rooms, laying their backs onto these comfortable Chesterfields. On the other hand, women, donning their formal dresses, are all glammed up, busying themselves with a cup of tea and biscuits, while enjoying their time in these fabric Camberleys. Comfort, sophistication and style define a British Class Sofa, and both the Chesterfield and Camberley sofas represent it all.
在19世紀，主人房是不能沒有高素質的手工製沙發。紳士淑女們，穿戴得體，對服裝一絲不苟，對室內傢具的要求更是層次甚高，由此看出Chesterfield 和Camberley 沙發的素質非凡。
The Barcelona Chair needs little in the way of introduction. One of the most iconic and celebrated designs of the 20th century, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Chair appears to us now “as if it has existed forever.
It was originally designed for the German Pavilion, that country's entry for the International Exposition of 1929, which was hosted by Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It was first used in Villa Tugendhat, a World Heritage Site designed by Mies van der Rohe in the city of Brno.
The frame was initially designed to be bolted together, but was redesigned in 1950 using stainless steel, which allowed the frame to be formed by a seamless piece of metal, giving it a smoother appearance. Bovine leather replaced the ivory-colored pigskin which was used for the original pieces.
The functional design and elements of it that were patented by Mies in Germany, Spain and the United States in the 1930s have since expired. The Barcelona chair was manufactured in the US and Europe in limited production from the 1930s to the 1950s. In 1953 Mies ceded his rights and his name on the design to Knoll. knowing that his design patents were expired. This collaboration then renewed popularity in the design.
In his 1981 book about modern architecture, From Bauhaus to Our House, Tom Wolfe mocked the Barcelona chair as "the Platonic ideal of chair", and wrote that, despite its high price, owning one had become a necessity for young architects: "When you saw the holy object on the sisal rug, you knew you were in a household where a fledgeling architect and his young wife had sacrificed everything to bring the symbol of the godly mission into their home.
A high quality reproduction of the Barcelona Chair is now on special sale at SofaSale.com.hk

Fabric sofas versus Leather Sofas: Which is better?
The world is divided into two opposing factions those who come down on the side of the leather sofa and those on the fabric sofa side. Which one are you?
There’s a lot to consider when you’re buying a sofa and after your home or car, it’s probably the most important purchase you’ll make. With so many to choose from, there is one crucial thing to consider before you start. Which is better for you leather or fabric?
Fabric sofas offer a greater variety of forms, colours and patterns than leather and are therefore easier to match with the surrounding décor. It’s a lot easier to get creative with your furnishing when you’re choosing a fabric sofa. For those you have a creative vision for their living space and plan a total look down to the last detail, fabric definitely gives you more control.
If you have young children, leather is easier maintain. A white, Italian fabric sofa may not be the wisest decision if you’ve got twin boys under three. Leather can be wiped clean very easily and spillages are not the disaster they can be on fabric sofas. That said, there are a range of stain resistant fabrics that can be cleaned very easily.
If you have multiple cats, you might be in trouble with a leather sofa, particular if they like to sharpen their claws on a brand new leather sofa. There are some more robust fabrics that are more resistant to cats’ claws butin general, if you have a new sofa, you cat is public enemy number one.
There are a lot of factors that influence how comfortable your sofa is – underlying structure, design, fabric, reclining ability, but the most important is your own personal taste. Some might like to sit bolt upright, others prefer to melt into their sofa with their feet up until they are joined to the furniture at a molecular level. Leather sofas can retain body heat, so sitting on one in 40 degree heat while wearing shorts might not be the most comfortable way to relax. If you use your sofa a lot during the day when the house can be colder consider fabric, as it is more comfortable when you immediately sit into it.
Good quality leather ages very well, providing it’s looked after and the styles associated with leather sofas tend to be more classic and therefore don’t date. Fabric sofas, while offering you more freedom of choice in style, can date due to their stylized design. Fabric can wear out over time as well and a few disastrous spills can make a leave it looking drab rather quickly.
Leather sofas are more expensive and you tend to get more bang for your buck with fabric ones. However, if you’ve fallen in love with a leather sofa and know you want it, it is a great investment in your home. A sofa is something you use every day and getting it right is important. There are a range of styles and tastes to suit every budget; the important thing is that you’re happy with your choice. That’s why it’s always best to ask sofa experts. When you go shopping, make sure you take detailed measurements of your room and consider any furniture reconfigurations for the future. Take plenty of photographs so our SofaSale customer service team can help you get what’s right for you.
