Inspired by the architecture of its day, the Florence Knoll sofa is a streamlined, slightly utilitarian piece of furniture. Clean lines, geometric shapes, and pure purpose made the sofa an instant classic when it debuted in 1954 and have kept it on the wish list of almost every modern furniture hound since. With a hefty price tag ($10,172, originally $11,236) however, the wish list is exactly where the sofa is likely to stay.
