9 Famous Women and the Sofas They Love Lounging On

When an iconic personality is paired with an iconic piece of furniture, a legend is often born.

What does your sofa say about you? If these portraits are any indication, quite a bit, actually.

Consider Lee Radziwill in Paris, on the phone, cigarette in hand, mid-puff. Note the curve of her chignon and of her sofa, a scroll-back number in salmon silk. It’s an essay in authentic, everyday elegance. Or Brooke Astor in her Albert Hadley–designed library. That sofa, in Brunschwig & Fils’s La Portugaise, might as well be a throne. There’s no telling how many yards of chintz the shot has sold, but there’s no doubt about this: The photographer captured something of her essence, and the magic of it will long endure.

Scroll on to see what each sofa has to say about these iconic women.
