Knole Sofas

The phrase Knole sofa originates from Knole Park in Kent, where the prototype of a sofa with adjustable arms was commissioned for the house owned by the Sackville-Wests, circa 1605-20.  It was originally used as a formal throne on which the monarch would have sat to receive visitors, rather than a comfortable sofa.  There are many designs of Knole sofas but in all cases the side arms are tied to the sofa back by means of heavy decorative braid, often with an elaborate tassel.
