Bow Ties Optional

Tuxedo's aren't just black &  white. They rarely have bows (ties) and come in a variety of colors & textures.
 Sexy with flair, some have buttons some don't. Some are streamlined and modern while others have a more  comfortable, transitional feel. I love the power statement tuxedo's make when you see one in a room.

Oh Wait,  you thought I was talking this the type of tuxedo.

 No,no, no.  The tuxedo's I am talking about are my favorite type....SOFA'S.

The tuxedo sofa is thought to have first been invented in the 1920s. It derives it's name from the same town as the tuxedo. The classy town of Tuxedo Park, New York.
The tuxedo sofa is often thought of as one of the pieces that heralded the modern era of furniture. Many who own this sofa wouldn't know that is called a tuxedo sofa. 
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 about the height of both back  & arms. 
The tuxedo sofa will instantly give your living/family room an instant modern feel. If you were to pick one piece to update your drab space to look sleek &  modern, the tuxedo sofa would be the piece you need.
