My Favorite Mid Century Modern Style Sofas

My Favorite Mid Century Modern Style Sofas

CHESTER-3-SEAT-SOFA-on-astralriles.com_ Not sure if you all have guessed it or not but, I am pretty obsessed with Mid Century Modern (MCM) furniture. When I go thrifting, the MCM style pieces are what I mainly try to look for. And when I do spot a good MCM piece, I try to scoop it up quickly before someone else gets it first. Thrifting is probably the only way that you're going to find a reasonably priced piece of MCM furniture. Please do not get sticker-shocked when you see those pieces in retail stores. It's ridiculous...believe me. Recently, I have been contemplating buying a new sofa and, of course, I want a MCM style sofa. A few reasons why I just love the MCM style is because of A.) the clean lines B.) low profile feature C.) THE LEGS!!!!!! I absolutely adore those tall skinny tapered legs! »»»»SUBSCRIBE TO MY BLOG«««« [mc4wp_form] For your viewing pleasure, I felt it necessary to post a list of my favorite MCM sofas. All of these darling sofas are possible contenders to end up in MY living room. I am not going to tell you which one I decide to purchase though. You will just have to stay tuned & subscribe to my blog in order to find out which one I chose! AND...you know that there must be another room makeover coming soon too right???? :) Well, on to the list... 1. EDWARD RIGHT ARM ANGLED SECTIONAL SOFA - DwellStudio (NOTE: This is an "online-only" item, which means there is no way to see it in person. The company will send you out free swatches, but that's it. Oh, and this item is also NON-RETURNABLE!!!! smh, that is just crazy. I am not sure if I could spend that much money on an item that I can't feel or see in person and CAN'T get any of my money back if I don't like it once I get it. Maybe, if I was ballin' out of control with money to burn...then and only then...would I play fast & loose with my online furniture purchases! lbvs. This sofa is HOTT and it would look awesome in my living room, buuuutttttttttt...) Maybe someone will buy it for me as a "gift"! Wishful thinking huh? lmao EDWARD RIGHT ARM ANGLED SECTIONAL SOFA on astralriles.com 2. REESE SOFA (in leather) - Room and Board Reese sofa in leather on astralriles.com 3. VAPOR SECTIONAL - Z Gallerie Vapor Sectional - 2 Piece from ZGallerie on astralriles.com 4. CHESTER 3-SEAT SOFA - DwellStudio (NOTE: This is another "online-only" item and non-returnable as well. Plus to add to the drama, the delivery time is 8-9 WEEKS! Yup, I said weeks. Why do all of the pretty things come with so many issues?!?! CHESTER 3-SEAT SOFA on astralriles.com 5. HUTTON SOFA - Room and Board Hutton Sofa on astralriles.com 6. TAYLOR SOFA - Thrive Home Furnishings (NOTE: Since all of their pieces are "made-to-order", they charge a 45% restocking fee if you decide that you want to return the furniture.) Ummmmm....I love this sofa and everything is Eco-friendly + made in the USA but, that 45% restocking fee seems a bit risky to me considering that it would be an online-only purchase and I can't sit on the sofa to test it out 1st.  The company will definitely send you out free fabric swatches...and they will arrive wrapped up in a leather string tied in a pretty little bow! I am still debating on this one. But, Whhooooooooo Hoooooo... look at those LEGS though...so gorgeous! :) Taylor Sofa at Thrive Furniture on astralriles.com 7.
