Sofas

Panton Living Tower

Verner Panton created many innovative furniture pieces in the sixties and seventies, and the Living Tower is the most innovative of them all. A forerunner of the “micro-environments” trend which encouraged social interraction, the Living Tower was constructed of a wood frame upholstered with wool over foam padding.

Montana sectional sofa

I’m not sure how durable this thing is but it’s nice enough for the price.

Grand Prix Sofa

This sofa is intended for children, but I think it would do quite well as a chair. Two or three would work well together for some low seating and wouldn’t break the bank.

Havana Sofa

It’s a sleeper sofa! It’s refreshing to see a truly modern sofa hide the practicality of a sleeper so well.

(Also, right now DWR is having their Upholstery Sale and there is free standard shipping for a limited time.)

“Offering the island-like sanctuary of a large chaise lounge, the versatility of a sofa bed, and the storage of a cupboard, the Havana Sofa readily adapts to the complex demands of modern living… Expanded completely, it is ready to serve as a full-sized daybed or bed in which, with a turn of the body, armrests become the foot- and headboards. The seat base doubles as a full storage compartment (accessible when the sofa is upright), the perfect hideaway for bedding or extra seat cushions.”

And, if that’s not enough, the upholstery is bouclé blend. I heart bouclé.

Arcadia 85″ Sofa

This particular sofa is notable for it’s price as well as the overall shape and style. There’s lots of fabric options to choose from, so that’s nice if you’re not too keen on the mocha-ish color shown. If I had to personally advise you on the quality of this sofa, I’d say it’d be worth the money spent.

Gia Sofa

The shape of this sofa is something to sit back and reflect upon. Or, should I say, this sofa’s shape allows one to sit back and reflect while upon it? This is me thinking too much. Anyways, I think this sofa deserves mention in the big bad world of upholstery because it’s different. Nuff said.

“Upholstered in Dacron, firmed with Reflex foam and sturdy steel springs. Solidly constructed with a wood frame and metal legs.”

Twilight Sleep Sofa

Well, there’s a lot to say about this (as there usually is about sleeper sofas), but I’m not going to go on and on about it- if you like the looks of it, I trust that you’ll visit DWR to read about the history and details. I’m mostly here to say, “hey, look at this, it’s a sleeper sofa and it doesn’t look too bad”. The back bolster pillow adjusts to three different positions so your lower lumbar will be happy and it’s slipcovered so you can remove it for cleaning.
