Rather than wandering a sprawling showroom floor in search of a good-enough sofa, folks at BuildASofa create their own perfect sofa. Clients start by choosing their style—think Mid-Century Oxford, Transitional Canwich, and the preferred sofa of psychologists everywhere, the Chesterfield. From there, they home in on the ideal upholstery, choosing from more than 100 top grain leathers and an eye-popping 1,500 fabrics including microfibers. The craftspeople take it from there, setting double steel springs into 100% natural wood frames, upholstering the whole kit 'n' kaboodle, and even hand tying the edges.
