The thing with sofas is that they come in standard sizes. When our friends moved into their new apartment, it turned out that the sofa they'd been eyeing would not fit into their new space. They decided to have something made but none of the quotes they received fit either their budget or their timetable. Then they discovered The Sofa Company.
Start with any of The Sofa Company's basic models (there are over 65 to choose from), and change it -- shrink it, stretch it, swap out the fabric, nix the arms, choose the legs, the springs, the wood -- until you come up with your perfect sofa, chair, sofa bed, or sectional. They're built locally, so the costs stay low, and most orders can be delivered in only two or three weeks -- or less! And, if you pay by debit card , $5 will go towards their "Charity of the Month." Check their website for details.
