Abby Sofa

Here’s a pretty nice sofa that won’t break the bank.

“Lustrous black and cream tweed, pristine lines and buttoned-back detailing all contribute to the mid-century mystique of this modern beauty and communicate “grown up” in a very hip way. That’s why you’ll find it as at home in a spacious condo or loft as in a vintage ranch or salon. High density foam on hardwood frame. Upholstery and bolsters, included, in polyester/viscose. Contemporary stainless steel legs.”
