Tuxedo Style in furniture

According to the wiseGeek: The tuxedo sofa is thought to have first been invented in the 1920s, and derives its name from the same place as does the tuxedo, from the classy town of Tuxedo Park in New York. Along with other pieces of furniture, the tuxedo sofa is often thought of as one of the pieces that heralded the modern era in furniture. Still, many who own such a sofa or couch wouldn’t know to call it a tuxedo sofa, even though the style remains a popular one. The basic requirements of any tuxedo sofa are that the arms of the sofa are the same height as its back. This usually means that back pillows, and sometimes side pillows rise above the height of both back and arms. Pillows may be attached or loose depending upon the individual sofa; more often they are loose. Early versions of the tuxedo sofa often had arms that curved outward, and you may find this in modern variants. Probably the most modern look, though, is a very straight, streamlined arm that is upholstered and may feature a slight amount of padding.

Bentwater Residence – Interior Design Elements

For this home in Bentwater, a waterfront community north of Houston, Tx, the design adage “form follows function” certainly applies. While not Bauhaus contemporary, it is contemporary and modern. This is accomplished by mixing furniture with clean, simple styling with chrome and leather accent furniture. Natural river stone accents mixed with light cherry wood finishes and the use of tan, gold, rust and black accent colors mirror the views of the river that are visible from almost every room in the house. To further accent the water element, we selected a very contemporary crystal and chrome chandelier for the foyer that, in a very subtle way, reminds one of falling water.
