About the Houndstooth Twill Fabric: An interwoven knit fabric usually seen in a multi-tone cotton blend thread. Houndstooth features an uneven, random and whimsical cross hatch design where the thread takes turns in an over and under weave forming a crooked yet overall lineal rectangle pattern. The pattern exists but appears random and texturized. The cotton blend provides for a comfortable yet durable upholstery with the breathing advantages of natural fiber. FLORENCE KNOLL HISTORY The Florence Knoll Sofa, Chair and Loveseat is a design icon. The original design was conceived in 1956 by Florence Knoll, a world class architect and designer. It is a relatively simple design as it was originally meant to complement the classic innovations of Saarinen and Bertoia. The Knoll philosophy of furniture design solves practical and aesthetic design problems. The philosophy results in minimalist beauty, lasting durability and luxurious comfort in one complete package. It is well known that Knoll studied and collaborated with Mies Van Der Rohe. Knoll designed the classic trio using a durable stainless steel frame with minimal materials. Cubic cushions featuring compressed buttons in a purposeful and logical layout provide style and comfort to the supporting thin armed, minimalist frame. Do you notice the similarities in design philosophy to the Mies Van der Rohe's Barcelona Chair? The Knoll Sofa, Love and Chair is becoming even more popular as its minimalist yet functional design fits perfectly into todays modern home. History of the Designer, Florence Knoll Florence Knoll is an American architect and furniture designer. Florence Knoll's design flair began at the age of 14 when she designed her first home. A minimalist to the core, she pioneered the concept of open plan living and working spaces. The question Knoll asked prior to the design phase of the Classic Knoll Sofa & Chair: How can a piece of furniture support luxurious upholstery, yet take up as little space as possible? Her American interpretation of minimalist, rationalist design theories is clearly evident in her pieces. In her early years, Knoll studied under Mies van der Rohe. Some say a quick glance at the Knoll Sofa and Chair reveals the influence of Mies van der Rohe via his iconic Barcelona Lounge Chair. It is true that both the Knoll sofa and chair share a similar square button impressed cushion design. Many view the Knoll full size sofa, love and chair collection as the expression in full scale living room furniture what the Barcelona design is to the lounge category. read more
