Finding the right sofa for your space can be a challenge.  I'm in right in the middle of that right now.  I find it more difficult to shop for myself than my clients.  In a new city, unfamiliar with local stores. So, I've taken the internet by storm and have relied on my staple chain retailers to come up with options. Perhaps these options will help you in your search. And of course I am on a tight budget, so none of the following will break the bank.

Above: Room & Board Murray Sofa - this new tailored design is the right price and size. $900 for 72", perfect size for my small living room

Crate and Barrel Petrie Sofa - the Florence Knoll sofa clearly inspired this sleek design, available at 74"  for $1460.  Unfortunately, I am not a fan of the natural or chocolate colors this piece comes stocked in.  I found a fabulous linen, cotton blend fabric that I love but the resulting price is $2500,  a bit steep for a C&B piece.

Mitchell Gold Dexter Sofa -mid-century modern inspired but I love the casual bench feeling of this sofa, available at 75" for $1810.  Love the stocked oatmeal fabric.  The store often has great floor sample sales...keeping fingers crossed.

Steven Anthony Case Study Sofa - similar to the Petrie sofa but a bit more evolved and equipped with high polished chrome legs...I have a thing for tufting lately.  Available from Vastu in DC at 72" for $2166.

ADVICE:  Take your time and don't buy something unless you love it.  Consider quality v.s. price - perhaps your sofa or sectional is your splurge piece in your home design.
