Trivia Thursday: English Roll Arm Sofa

As many of you may already know, I love my sofa. It was my first real furniture investment post-PhD life, and almost five years later, I still absolutely love it.

This sofa is an English roll arm style, which is characterized by a tight back and rolled arms. This tailored style has low arms and, generally, a deep seat, which makes it a very comfortable piece. The English roll arm sofa looks perfectly at home in casual spaces as well as more formal spaces.

      Hi Jess, You’re not going to like this, but my end tables are from years and years ago…from my parents’ basement. They had bought them many years before I took them over. They’re wood, but not great quality wood, so I painted them white. Here are a few similar options from Amazon, At Home, and Birch Lane.
