I’ve always loved the mid-century look and recently I’ve been on the hunt for a Danish-style sofa. You know, the ones with the wooden bases. They give you the comfort of a sofa without the heavy, oversized feel of something fully upholstered. I’ve been keeping an eye out on Craig’s List hoping a vintage piece would show up at a reasonable price. But since I’m always a little wary of bringing home anything that might harbor bed bugs, I’ve been looking for new pieces as well. The good news is there are a few choices out there. Like the Cavett Love Seat from Crate & Barrel, currently on sale for $1274.
I also discovered the Model 711 Danish Sofa from France & Sons. I’m not familiar with this company, but it looks like a nice piece. The upholstery is a wool blend and the frame is ash. Currently on sale for $1199 (down from $2300).
And if you’ve got money to burn, check out the Raleigh sofa from DWR. I happened to walk by the store and saw this in the window. I went in to check it out, and ended up being talked into sitting down by a sales woman. This thing is one of the most comfortable sofas I have ever had the pleasure of sitting on. Prices for the two-seater start around $4000.
