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.

Klein Sofa

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.

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.
“Cushions are constructed of a polyether foam and the suspension consists of a “no-sag” spring supported by rubber webbing. The Montana collection is covered in a rich “chocolate” fabric made of 100% polyester, and chrome feet add the perfect finishing touch. Chair and ottoman also available.”

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.
