If you’re in need of some creative options for your seating area, this Playground Sofa from Eilersen has two free-movable back sections that allow you some versatility. And how do these free-movable back sections stay in place? They have a rubber material that ‘stick’ to the top, which means you have tons of freedom to place them wherever you want. Two additional large cushions come with the sofa.
Available in many fabrics.
Solid-wood frame, polyurethane foam.
82.75″ L x 45.25″ W x 16″ H
Purchase Information:Price: $2,650.00

Yep, you guessed it, this sofa’s inspiration was a box. Really, it was. That, along with a bit of 1950s modernist aesthetic forms an altogether ideal sofa for the purist. Encased in Black Walnut or White Oak, the sofa’s beauty and austerity redeems any possible comfort shortcomings (it isn’t a sink-into/sprawl-out-on sort, is it?) and it won’t ever disappoint a proper sitting area. It’s safe to say that this is certainly an investment piece (pricing starts at around $6,500) and that it will remain so throughout the years.
Designers: Seyhan Özdemir & Sefer Çaglar of Autoban.
Oak or Walnut, upholstery.

Sitting at that sweet spot of just under $1G, this sofa looks super comfortable. I’d say it’s a very safe bet if you’re looking for a modern sofa in that particular price range.
Sit on it and you’ll know why this smart looker’s named Bolla (Italian for “cloud”). Skinny right-angled frame hugs overscaled poufy side/back cushions that squoosh in contrast to a firm uni-seat cushion. Structured and relaxed all at once in tonal salt/pepper tweed. Recessed legs float it just off the floor.
Purchase Information:Price: $999.00

I fell hard and fast for Deadgood when I first saw their Love Collection, and I might just have a serious crush on the Capsule Sofa and Chair. The colorful buttons and graduated tones add just the right amount of playfulness… might be the perfect thing to knock the serious edge off a room.

Capsule 2 Seater Sofa (685h x 2000w x 900d), £3712.20

This sofa looks oddly modern despite the traditional silhouette. Maybe it’s the fabric done in a Kvadrat Wool, or maybe it’s just that more traditional frames are back in style nowadays.
Elegantly shaped European hardwood frame with jute webbing and hessian straps. The Upholstery is Kvadrat Molly Wool and cushions are feather-filled. Walnut stained beech compose the feet. Despite all this, it is a truly comfortable seat.

As beautiful (and comfortable) as this collection is, the price just plain hurts. When will the Bouroullec brothers do an affordable line of wonderful items? (Now, if you’ve got 7 and 13 grand allocated for a chair and sofa, respectively, then good for you, but I’d rather not hear about it.)

Similar to the One Night Stand Sleeper Sofa (except armless), this sofa bed folds down to accommodate afternoon napping or overnight guests.
The name says it all. Sit up or sleep it off. Quickly convert from upright lounging to horizontal sprawl. Playful contrast cross-stitching, kicky French seams, and a solid stainless steel base add pizzazz to the straightforward yet inviting form.
Material: Wool blend upholstery, brushed stainless steel legs.
Specs: (inches) 80w x 41d, Seat height: 16, Seat depth: 22

So, a while ago (back in ’07), I posted this sofa saying if I was filthy rich, I would buy it. Now, let’s fast forward to this past weekend, where I happen to be in London walking through a shop and saw this same sofa at 20% off. Even with the exchange rate, that’s roughly $2,200 off what it currently retails for in the US. I am not filthy rich (repeat that again), but I could not help but buy it. It’s modern, classic, comfortable, non-pet-hair-clingy, wine-spill-proof, and I love it. I vow to keep it, sit in and sleep on it at every available opportunity for as long as I shall live.
Purchase Information:Price: £4,796.00

Shazam! Check out this snazzy seating option from the lovely Ms. Uroquiola. While perhaps the thinner cushioning seems to be more fit for an office or reception area sofa than a jump/sink/settle-in-to-watch-a-movie-type sofa, the lines and style are spectacular.
Hollow is a modular compact seating collection for reception, lounge and meeting applications. The concave plastic panels enhance the appearance of the lightness and give the collection its name. Numerous variations in finishes and dimensions allow the Hollow collection to be specified in diverse variations with alternative monochromatic or contrasting aesthetic options.

Here’s a new sofa to add to your list of considerations. It’s got that Danish Modern feel that we all know and love (right?), and if you lean towards neutrals for large furniture pieces, there’s five excellent shades to choose from.
The Luna sofa is a modern take on a classic Danish design. Its beautifully simple shape is upholstered with a comfortable and versatile cotton blend fabric. Button tufting on the back cushions gives the sofa a retro feel. The solid wooden frame and legs give it a sturdy, confident stance. Luna’s removable back and bottom cushions sit atop an upholstered well-tailored deck. The Luna sofa is available in five color choices: Charcoal, Chocolate, Pewter, White and Khaki. Wooden legs are available in two finishes: Honey and Espresso.
TrueModern uses sustainable birch and low VOC finishes, making them a green manufacturer.
Materials: Metal legs with white enamel, fabric.
Specs: (inches) 84w x 31h x 36d

Here’s a little love seat that pulls out to make a twin bed. (Shown on the left in Linen and on the right in Graphite).
“Roomy enough to loveseat two, its slim angled arms and comfy back would never lead you to believe there’s a full-length twin bed hiding inside. Comfy bi-fold coil mattress with foam cushion. Tailored slubby linen look in graphite; optional total seal protection. A great extra piece in bedroom or office. Also in natural linen.”
Certified sustainable, kiln-dried hardwood frame
Seat cushion is multilayer soy- or plant-based polyfoam
Poly fabric: graphite
Twin bi-fold 5.25″ mattress
Mortise and tenon joinery
Benchmade in USA
