Rochelle Sofa by Gus Design

With definite roots in mid-century design, this sofa has some rather nice detailing with the exposed wood and button-tufting.

‘Solid wood legs elevate this Gus Modern couch off the ground, effecting a unique “floating” look. The wood detailing extends up the back of the sofa for a striking visual accent. Button-tufted fabric upholstery achieves a pleasing loft for hours of relaxation, while a tight back eliminates the need to continually arrange and tidy loose cushions.’

84″W x 38″H x 29.5″D.

Smock Chair by Patricia Urquiola

The Smock collection shows such detail and intricacy with fabric yet it has an otherwise modern and simple silhouette…if I had loads of cash, I’d probably already own this or any one of Urquiola’s other pieces, but for now I’ll have to make do by pretending I have my pick.

“patricia urquiola loves playing with textures, as you can see in her smock line of furniture. urquiola bunches up the upholstery around hoops and round frames, giving the smock line a modern look with a rich and almost antique feel.”

steel frame covered in injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam. chromed or varnished arms. sofa back cushions stuffed with goose down. underfeet in synthetic rubber.

This has got to be the best deal around on a sofa. Now mind you, the price is so low, you may want to investigate the upholstery by asking for a swatch. But, if you’re on a tight budget and need something to sit on for a small space, this may be just what you’re looking for.

Mid-Century Sofa

Here’s a nice little economical sofa that can be converted to a twin size bed. The conversion isn’t done quickly as the back support needs to be unscrewed, but it is a dual function piece none the less.
