Affordable Modern Sofa

Desire/Acquire: Midcentury Sofa

Inspired by the architecture of its day, the Florence Knoll sofa is a streamlined, slightly utilitarian piece of furniture. Clean lines, geometric shapes, and pure purpose made the sofa an instant classic when it debuted in 1954 and have kept it on the wish list of almost every modern furniture hound since. With a hefty price tag ($10,172, originally $11,236) however, the wish list is exactly where the sofa is likely to stay.

Imagine our delight when we found a similar version for less! Same clean lines and similar tufting but for a fraction of the price. Keep reading to find the surprising source that is scratching our modernist itch!

Jonathan Adler's Happy Chic Crescent Heights sofa is available for just $1,735 (on sale from $2,895), making it an absolutely steal. Plus, we love the slightly velvet nature of the fabric, as well as the pretty bolsters on either end. So, although the Florence Knoll version will have to remain a dream purchase, we certainly don't feel like this well-priced version is a sacrifice! In fact, we might actually prefer it.
