One can only assume that this line of furniture by the Designers Guild is called julep because in an ideal world, one might find oneself sitting on it and drinking a mint julep — that’s the kind of casual elegance that this beautiful sofa encourages. Plus, mint juleps are almost translucent, meaning that a spill would almost go unnoticed. And if you drank enough of them, why, it would go completely unnoticed. What a lovely and functional piece of furniture.

Also featured here (top right) is the Julep chair.
