Get This Look | English Roll Arm Sofa

Renaming what I was calling "Trend Talk" into "Get This Look", because well, Get This Look is a favourite saying of mine, and Trend Talk sounds like a segment on basic cable, and who wants to be basic?

This post is all about the English Roll Arm sofa, which is basically everywhere these days and I'm feeling it. After years of specifying contemporary Italian sofas (Minotti, Palazetti, Flexform, etc) I found myself migrating towards a more modern yet comfortable feel - more of a comfortable luxury. Think Christian Liagre and Holly Hunt.

Now I'm all about the English Roll Arm (finally).  Granted, for Condominium Public Spaces, Offices, Commercial spaces, The Minotti's and Liagre's are still my number 1, but I have fallen big time for the elegant comfort of the roll arm.  

Inspired mostly by Ali Cayne's, Jenna Lyon's, and Sofia Coppola's Living Rooms, I know for the right residential setting, these sofas are just perfect. I actually have one saved on my wishlist for my own Living Room.

It even works in a more contemporary setting, I could see this set up in any Toronto condominium.

And then this guy is just the perfect mix of casual comfort with an added dose of character.
