Without furniture, homes would feel empty on the inside and be forced to boost their self-esteem by wearing provocative siding and bullying smaller homes. Protect fragile domestic egos with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $200 toward sofas, tables, and other furniture at Loft Sofa.
The European-style furniture at Loft Sofa makes more from less, draping clean-line, modern shapes with an arsenal of simple leathers and fabrics, and accenting sitting-room staples with quirky rugs, lamps, and tables. The Paris sectional ($1,299) inspires a couch coup d'état, revolutionizing busy living rooms with an easy square shape in black or white leatherette that can be separated into an armchair and three-seat sofa after especially heated arguments over who gets to hide the remote. For smaller spaces, squeeze in the Carmella petite ($699), a circular mini lounger with plush pillows, or the Jennifer ($799), a geometric loveseat shadowed by a matching ottoman. Baroque-inspired design gets a spirited update with the versatile Ghost chair ($199), conjured out of a single piece of clear or black polycarbonate that can reappear as a dining chair, living-room accent, or office throne. Illuminate foggy living quarters with the Titanic lamp ($85), an eye-catching, head-tilting beacon that sinks into even tabletops with its sideways trompe l'œil design.
Since 2006, Loft Sofa has outfitted homes with modern furnishings handcrafted from quality fabrics and woods. In store and online, clients browse a range of styles, from sectional leather sofas and plush white couches to glass coffee tables and platform beds. Each of the shop's pieces keep mother nature humming with ecologically sustainable materials, including wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
