Blueprint in L.A. is having a 70% off sale this weekend. You may be able to find something there.

Probably too far a drive for any of my American Dwell friends. But I found something I kinda like at Structube. Not very sleek butit has nice lines all things considered...
Structube is a Québécois company (all the URLs are in French) but they have some stores in the Toronto area.
I have been eyeing the Windsor sectional. It is $2299 CDN which is onlyabout 1,800 US. Plus it is leather -- which I am of two minds about but that's another story. I have yet to sit on it in person but I have seen their other stuff in the past and it was good quality stuff.

jxbrown mentioned Chiasso and they do have some really good sales on sofa collections right now.
I like the tufted back and juxtaposed wide modern arms of the Carmen Sofa (pictured) and recently [url href=http://www.loftlust.com/2005/05/46/]posted [/url]about it.
They've sold out of the chair, but the sofa is a nice deal for only $974. And they have a few of the ottomans left too. gl!

[quote:whitespike format=text/plain]I wanted a case study daybed for my second but didn't have 1600 to spend on a second sofa. [/quote]
The Case Study Daybed is definitely one of the nicest sofas I've seen and is very classic. It also has perfect dimensions for the room I am looking to furnish. The one thing that I've been running into with sofas is being able to find something that isn't too trendy modern. I want the design to be long lasting as well as the construction. The more I think about it, it seems the Lillberg sofa mentioned earlier would make a great piece since it is very adaptable. Perhaps I could afford the nice sofa if I went with the Lillberg as a second?
Well, they're both great suggestions.
Re: Options for a cheap sectional sofaPosted by Adam Burke at May 18. 2005
I agree that the Case Study sofa is beautiful. I think it's absolutely classic. Jacob, you were saying it's comfortable? That's the part I've always wondered about. I also worry about sofas with no arms. Although I like how they look, I worry about lounging in it. When I sit on a couch, I like to spraaaawl. That Jennifer sectional seems too good to be true. Damn tempting though! Anyone have any experience with their stuff?
Re: Options for a cheap sectional sofaPosted by jakob clark at May 19. 2005
Well, it's hard to say what is and isn't comfortable. I have had someone tell me they thought an eames lounge + ottoman wasn't comfy! Weird huh?
I think it is comfortable .... but you have to consider how YOU live. The cushions are firm but comfy, the seat foam is sorta springy (maybe bc it is supposed to double as a mattress). Also, the back is low. Since it is sloped back it doesn't bother me, and I tend to slouch anyway. The Corbusier sofas are very low backed and cost 4 times as much. Their backs are straight and very low ... to me that isn't comfortable.
I wouldn't exactly call it a 'sprawl out sofa.' I have seen VERY few modern sofas that are. You can add arms to this sofa now. Doing this does shorten the actual seating area. I think it looks really cool with arms. You could also only get one arm, sorta making it a daybed with a lying down head support at one end. The arms are also sloped like the back. It can be ordered with one or two and they , from what I understand, can be taken off with ease.
I have always like the idea of getting two, each with one arm, and adding the Modernica side table that makes it into a continuous 'L' shape. To me that would give it alot of lounging space and places to lie down. I'll include a pic of this.
The Lillberg, like I said, is one of the most comfy sofas I have used. Very adaptable to anyone with the 4 back positions. It is suprisingly well built in my opinion, but I still wish I could purchase it for a few hundred dollars more for better long lasting quality. The only complaint some people may have is: A) The seat depth is pretty huge. Because this is such a lounging sofa it begs you to curl up, making the depth a good thing if that is what you want. It is for me, bc it is in my TV room. Otherwise I would want the seat more shallow. B) there is nothing holding the cushions in place. They tend to slip a bit. This also doesn't bother me on account of lounging. It's kinda like being in a pile of pillows.

http://www.interiorexpress.com the quality is fine, as with most fine cut contemporary styles they are a little more firm than soft but at $1000 it's hard to go wrong.

Planet Sofa has some interesting funky sofas as well. They're very vibrant and creative looking.

There are some reasonably non-offensive (read: clean, modern) sofas available for well under a thousand dollars at CB2 (which is a crate & barrel sub-brand). You can see them here:
My guess (and I haven't seen them in person) is that they are IKEA-level quality. Probably not great, but good enough if your budget is one of the primary drivers in your decision making.
I'm going to try to post an image; forgive me please if it doesn't work (it's my first attempt here).
Re: Options for a cheap sectional sofaPosted by Hayden at June 05. 2005
Yeah, I gotta say, the Case Study sofa is still my favorite design. I remember when I first saw it I thought it looked kind of Japanese, and it still does to me, while also complimenting so many beautiful classic modern designs. It really looks perfect to me with some Plywood Chairs. Despite that this combo is probably in a LOT of homes, I think the reason for that eclipses any real need to be different.
Man, that Porter sofa too. Beautiful! I would have to sit in them to make my final decision but I am a fellow sloucher so I think me and the day bed would get on well. Anyone have any more pics of it in a space? I am wondering what it would look like with an Eames plywood coffee table cause I love that piece and it looks great with the Porter in that pic.
Re: Options for a cheap sectional sofaPosted by jakob clark at June 05. 2005
Are you talking about the case study day bed or the case study sofa?
I am thinking about buying the case study sofa. It seems like the 'every sofa.' Decently comfortable, and lasting quality paired with a simple, clean design that can grow with your changing tastes.
I like the day bed, but it seems to be not as substantial as I would want for a main sofa.
Ah, I am talking about the day bed. Did not know there was a sofa, but I like it. I see what you mean, it's a very classic design. I still love the day bed, aesthetically. I thought yall were saying that it was comfortable and I was getting psyched. The only reason I have not seriously considered it is due to comfort. Oh well, I don't really see how it could be.
Re: Options for a cheap sectional sofaPosted by jakob clark at June 06. 2005
It is comfortable. It just isn't as substantial as a full sized sofa. However, many people use them as a sofa. If that is what you like get it
Cool, that is good news. However, it looks like I finally get to find out, tomorrow. DWR opened up a store here yesterday.
I think it would fit my needs well since the space it will be in is small and needs something minimal and armless to work. I think I would enjoy something more like an occasional sofa, to get more aesthetic quality into the space and because I watch a small amount of tv. I already have a pottery barn basic sofa that is uber comfy. It's too big for the new space though! And not modern, of course. I loved modern stuff when I bought it but thought I'd miss the comfort of a good old oversized pillow land. I went too far. Now, I really don't like it. Not because of the way it looks or that it is not comfortable but, it is TOO comfortable. I just slouch away into oblivion! Seriously. It's just not supportive enough. Nobody can stay awake on that thing. The seating also creates a vibe for interpersonal action. I usually enjoy more edgy and talkative encounters with guests than that comfy-pit wants to make you feel like. And keeping people awake on it, (read: the girlfriends) is impossible. Future girlfriends will have to suffer with me through movies that they insisted on renting from now on.
Re: Options for a cheap sectional sofaPosted by Lisa K at November 06. 2012
I have been to Euroway a couple times and each time my girlfriend and I eye this sofa. We sit on it and imagine it in our apartment (it would look great) and then we leave without purchasing it. There are two reasons for this.
First the fabric cover is the main turn off. It really isn't very comfortable. Kinda scratchy and not very soft. If it came in a grey suede microfiber, I would have been sitting on this sofa everynight for months.
My second complaint is that it isn't all that comfortable. The dimensions on it are just slightly off for my girlfriend and me. I'm 6 foot and she is 5'4 and neither of us has ever felt really at ease on it. The horizontal seat is rather deep and the back not really high enough to make me feel fully supported.
In spite of these issues I continually desire this sofa because of its affordability, looks, and my desire to get rid of the damn wood framed futon I currently slouch on everynight.
We did find a sofa that we are seriously considering, last week. EQ3 Replay sofa. Was actually comfortable, the microfiber suede was not the highest quality but more comfortable than the Iman. And if you aren't a fan of RED you can get it in a few other less glaring colors.
This is very. I like your way of writing this post. And wish thanks for write this here.I hope as you write this nice it may helpful for someone.

A sectional curved sofa for a small space probably appears to be an oxymoron. How could there possibly be a perfect meeting of the two?
Well, the honest answer is that in the right home, a sectional curved sofa could actually save you space! Centrally locating sofa pieces within a small living area not only lends to proper seating for conversation and intimacy, but could also make the space feel more spacious.
If seating in one specific spot is not to your liking, with sectional pieces you have the ability to place them however you prefer. This would lend your own personal creative touch to the living room. Small sectional sofa can be a good choice for your small home decoration.

Small sectional sofa can solve your problem very easily. A small sectional sofa consists of 3 to 4 pieces. That includes one loveseat with a single sofa seat, and the convenient thing about sectional sofa is that you can place them in the sections according to the requirement of the room.
If you have a smaller space and you need good seating arrangements, small sectional sofas are ideal. They are very versatile and it is possible to buy each component separately in many cases. It's certainly worth looking into.
