Bare walls have plenty of advantages: ample surface area for finger painting, an absence of disapproving Churchill posters, and no mirrors reminding you that your hair is on fire. Fill rooms' middles with furnishings so you can keep walls clear with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get $200 toward custom upholstery and reupholstery, custom accent chairs, and custom sofas at one of The Sofa Company's five locations in Santa Monica, Pasadena, downtown LA, Costa Mesa, and Redondo Beach.
The Sofa Company amasses a collection of eclectic household furnishings and specializes in customizing upholstery, sofas, sofa beds, sectionals, and chairs, even on currently owned furniture. Build-your-own sofa services allow buyers to choose from any size, fabric, or configuration to put together the couch ($595+) that floats around the sky in their dreams. Customers can arouse artistic instincts by sifting through 100+ custom sofa styles and inspecting thousands of fabric swatches with the help of the friendly, knowledgeable staff. Complete an Alberta couch by picking out a finish for its wood base and choosing fabric—such as chenille, microsuede, or vinyl—to surround its clean-fitted cushions. Furniture fanatics can also stylize a Bay accent chair ($385+) with the fabric and color of their choice, or reupholster an old, worn-out Santa Claus lap with new red velvet. Two Groupons may be used per household for purchases that are more than $595, and Groupon customers can also speak with a store consultant about an additional 25 percent off select accessories.
