On The Rocks Sofa

This is pricey but I love it! It’s referred to as a “system” because the four elements can be moved around in numerous ways to create different seating arrangements.

And for those of you wondering, yes, the backrest cushions have non-slip pads to keep them in place.

Retro Sofa

I usually gag at the use of the word ‘retro’ because it’s usually far over used to the point of being meaningless(much like the Ebay favorite “Eames Era”). So, other than not liking the title, this sofa is a pretty good deal for how relatively nice it is.

“This is one of the most classic sofa silhouettes in the modern design arsenal. Simple, rounded rectangles form a sleek and basic look that still has plenty of style and tons of comfort. The couch frame is rectangular and low, with two stuffed seat cushions and two larger back cushions that extend above the back of the sofa. The arms are slim but sturdy and the legs have a charming flute in a dark wood tone. No garish floral prints or bulky overstuffed arms. This is truly a look that will last.”

Ceylon Sofa

What’s this? A modern sofa under $1000? My antennae go up when I hear these words, and I have to say that often I’m disappointed with quality or else the “modern” style is way overdone. Not in this case though. I’m a big fan of the bench seat and square arms, and the aluminum legs add a nice contemporary touch to the overall style. It’s a good deal in my book.

•Kiln-dried hardwood frame
•Flexolator spring system
•Cotton/poly blend upholstery in mocha with topstitch details
•Solid brushed aluminum legs
•Four square pillows across the back

86″Wx35″Dx35″H (18.25″H seat).

annex sectional

This is really not a bad price for a sectional. And what’s great about it is that you can buy different pieces for different configurations.

“Umpteen combinations. One great neutral. It’s a chair, it’s a chaise. It’s a loveseat, it’s a twelve-seat. It’s a U, it’s an L. It’s a bird, it’s a plane. It’s super, man. Fearless salt-and-pepper microfiber with the touch of suede. Studio or loft, add on an Annex.”
•Lightweight kiln-dried solid hardwood frame
•Flexolator spring system
•Mortise and tenon joinery
•Dense foam core cushions wrapped in soft poly batting
•Plush microfiber
•Chrome-plated removable legs with plastic glides
•Made in USA

Oasis Sofa

Nowadays, if perusing the market for a decent sofa, there isn’t much to choose from in the modernist’s middle-of-the-road budget. That’s why it’s really nice to run across a quality product for less than a grand. This particular sofa has clean, simple lines and a nice microfiber fabric to keep any spills from causing a catastrophe.

•Kiln-dried solid hardwood frame
•Dense foam core cushions wrapped in soft poly batting
•Sinuous wire spring suspension in back, Perma-Eze grid in seat
•Removable solid maple legs with dark finish
•Polyester microfiber upholstery with self-welt detailing
•Made in the USA

Fortunata Modern Sofa

Hmm. I think this sofa is a good choice if you are on a limited budget…it’s also completely customizable (if that’s a word) with a variety of microfiber, leather and other fabrics to choose from. Apparently you can also change the “size and shape of any piece to suit your needs”. Not a bad deal.

Bottoni Sofa- Triple Seater

If you’re looking for a modern sofa, and if you’re planning on having it for a while, I recommend the Bottoni. The size and shape are simple and sophisticated, yet the price tag doesn’t knock all the wind out of your lungs. Really, when you think about all the time you spend on a sofa and how long you’ll have it (years?), and consider the cost per month, it’s really a steal. One of the perks of this particular sofa is that there are small blanket-type things (sold separately) that can customize the seat back if you were wanting a bit more pattern.

Sofa available in Charcoal or Ecru.

The Klein Sofa’s not a bad option if you’re looking for a straight arm sectional. Available in either left or right chaise configurations. Also available in two different sofa lengths.

“Modern design and maximum comfort meet in our Klein collection. Its deep seat, low profile and soft stain-resistant chenille fabric create an inviting place to relax. A low back, boxy arms and stainless steel stretcher base offer a sleek contemporary perspective.”

Logo Sofa

Do I need to say that this looks way better than anything that falls under the category of “futon”? I think I probably don’t, but just in case, if you’re thinking about a sit/sleep double action sofa, I recommend serious consideration of this particular sofa. It looks good.

“The compact, Dutch-designed Logo Sleep Sofa rests lightly on chrome-plated steel sleigh legs, with crossbar support for added strength. The Sofa opens easily through a three-staged durable ratchet mechanism for either reclining or sleeping. The Sofa sleeps two, and is upholstered in a soft heathered wool (two-toned charcoal and light grey or red and tomato) that suits almost any environment. Made in Denmark.”

Available in Charcoal/Light Grey or Red Tomato.
