The sofa is typically the most prominent piece of furniture in a living room, den, or family room. But not only is it visually the center of attention; it’s also usually the most-used furnishing in the room. So, not only do you need a couch that looks great—you also need one that holds up over the years. Which is why we’d like to introduce you to a few mid-century modern sofas from our current catalog.
These classic mid-century modern sofas are constructed from 100 percent hardwood (northern yellow birch or maple), and they’re built to last for 100 years or more. We never use less-sturdy woods like poplar or alder, which are commonly used in making lower-quality furniture. And all exposed trim is always solid northern yellow birch. Plus, we use 8-way hand-tied 9” coil springs for exceptional, long-lasting comfort and durability.
If you’re exploring your options among simple, elegant, luxurious, solid wood mid-century modern sofas, here are three that are sure to delight. They have strong character, yet blend seamlessly in with so many different décor styles. And, with an extensive selection of fine upholstering fabrics to choose from, it’s easy to get a couch that perfectly complements the rest of your room.
