A well-chosen sofa is the perfect way to set the tone in your space. In Julianne Moore's home, the couch sets a stylish, luxurious ambiance.

The Mary & George actress took to Instagram to share an adorable image of her dog Hope stretched out in her living room. A large window fills the room with views of seagrass and sunlight. Sheer white curtains and creamy walls create a cozy, neutral backdrop.

However, one element takes the cake: the living room sofa. As design aficionados, we couldn't help but notice its iconic beautiful, leather sections and buttery, tan color. Moore's couch is a de Sede DS-600 'Snake' sofa.

Designed by Eeonora Peduzzi-Riva, Heinz Ulrich, and Ueli Berger, the legendary sofa was launched in 1972 by Swiss brand de Sede. From its inception, the living room seating option has appeared in some of the world's most fabulous homes and venues. From Mick Jagger and Tina Turners' living rooms to Studio 54, it has a star-studded past, and clearly, present. Informally known as 'the non-stop sofa,' the piece once appeared in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's longest sofa.

However, just because it's beautiful and famous doesn't mean that the DS-600 Snake isn't highly functional. Moore's sofa consists of individual, addable armchair elements that can be configured into various shapes and forms depending on the shape of your living room. 

The de Sede site details: 'These consist of an L-shaped hard foam core covered with a leather-covered cushion. The elements are connected with a plug-in hinge and a construction made of hide and zipper.' They also detail 7 different possible combinations in which the sofa can be set up. The DS-600 snake is more than its pretty face.

'In Julianne Moore's living room, the classic piece of furniture brings a grounding, classic, and luxurious feel to her space. It fits perfectly into the 'quiet luxury' interior design trend. Though the piece of furniture is simple: fabricated from casual, caramel-colored leather, it is made of high-quality materials and fits with the muted color scheme of Moore's space,' says Jennifer Ebert, design expert and digital editor at Homes & Gardens

'Of course, it looks beautiful in Moore's home, but if the size of your space allows, I'm sure it will make an eternal statement in every home.'

Iconic and versatile, the right sofa can make all the difference. Whether it's a sofa trend or a classic piece like the DS-600, couches are the focus of a living room.
