Anne wrote in asking me if I knew if there was an official name for this type of 360 degree sofa that has been a staple of gathering rooms, hotels, theaters etc. They were particularly popular during the late Victorian period, but have been around much longer and are still used, in differing shapes and styles.
So the question is – is there a name for this style? I’ve done research and can’t come up with anything more descriptive than “circular foyer sofa”. Anyone know?
