Sofas

Mario Bellini Le Bambole sofa for B&B Italia in 1973

I’m obsessed with the Le Bambole sofa for B&B Italia. Before you get your hopes up, this particular piece is sold out. However, if you’re patient, you may find one at an online auction site or at a resale shop. Also, the chair was rereleased by B&B Italia in 2007.

Cantilever Sofa by Noah Packard

So, I’d never really heard of StyleFactory, nor am I particularly entranced by voting for products only to find out they may or may not be made, but I am fairly impressed with this sofa. It’s very mid century (exactly the sort of thing you wish you’d find at a thrift or resale shop) and with the cantilevered table you’ll have one less side table to find.

Fulham Leather Seating from Restoration Hardware

Hello Fulham, where have you been all my life? This sofa is available in 8, 9 and 10 foot widths! This thing reminds me of a sofa they may have in your hotel lobby and then you wish you had something this comfortable in your own home. It’s so masculine and 70’s. Love it!

Runda Samsas Sofa

Dare I say that Carl Malmsten’s furniture is becoming trendy again? (Gasp.) I halfway despair when certain classic items become popular, because usually those cherished-from-afar pieces start to spread throughout every magazine and blog almost to the point that they lose some of their appeal. Now, in the case of this sofa, I have my fingers crossed that won’t happen. It’s just too elegant and timeless to succumb to that particular fate.

Malhoun Sofa

The first impression of this tufted back sofa is one of a cloud. The low, horizontal proportions and generous scale looks worthy of a serious sit-down-and-ponder (or nap), while the clean geometry of its base and feet keeps it feeling firmly modern.

Playground Sofa

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.

Autoban Box Sofa

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 ÷zdemir & Sefer «aglar of Autoban.
Oak or Walnut, upholstery.
Made in Portugal by De La Espada.

Bolla Sofa

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.

Capsule Collection by Ziglam & Brook

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.

Oscar Sofa

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.

Quilt Sofa and Armchair

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.)

Blu Dot Flat Out Sleeper Sofa

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

Naviglio Sofa

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.

Hollow 3-seat Sofa

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.

Design Patricia Uroquiola, 2006.
