10 Top Sofa [companies] and Why We Love Them

Looking for a great sofa that will last you through the next 20+  years ? Here's a list of our top 10 & why [in no particular order] :

1] Bensen

Here's a great sleeper sofa by a great Canadian furniture designer Niels Bendtsen. Simple, functional, elegant & red! What's not to love?

2] Ligne Roset

French company Ligne Roset is the BMW of furnture - hard to go wrong here - I love this Cityloft sofa especially, as it could work in a modern or a transitional style of living room [notice the beautiful sculpted arm rest].

3] Moooi

Ah - the return of Moooi to our blog- not only do they make our favorite horsey floor lamp they make incredible sofas ! Below shows you how one sofa can look so different depending on the upholstery :

4] Edra

This is a very special furniture company based guessed it....Italy ! Our favorite country in the whole world for furniture, food and fashion. Edra's designs are always very experimental and very cutting edge. This sofa called Flap is practically an apartment in itself! Just imagine the parties you could have....

5] Cassina

Another of our favorite Italian furniture companies, this sofa was designed by the king of design himself - Philippe Starck [more blogging about him later]. What is so cool about this sofa is that Starck designed it to be very versatile - it comes in different lengths and configurations. For example, the one below has two different sizes of armrests; the one below that is extra long - great for an Academy Award movie night [or Superbowl]!

6] B & B Italia

ok, yet another Italian furniture company - B & B is the absolute king of sectionals. If Ligne Roset is the BMW of sofa companies, B & B is the Lamborghini :

7] Gus Modern

These sofas will appeal to loft dwellers, due to their compact sizes. This nice little Canadian company has come up with a collection of very affordable, practical and well made sofas with a lovely range of fabrics.

8] Minotti

Minotti also has some fantastic sectionals similar to B & B, but these more rounded styles [smaller versions are available] differentiate this Italian company from the crowd.

9] Montauk

This Canadian company based in Montreal offers very very nice plush, luxurious styles that blend in with many living rooms and lifestyles. For example this sofa is placed in a Rococo style space - it's clean rounded lines compliment the architecture nicely without competing for your attention.

10] Baker
Although we at cky love modern, we still appreciate and work with those of you wanting a more transitional style living space. Baker is a fantastic American producer of lovely sofas by leading designers such as Barbara Barry.

11] HBF - I had to include this is SO Park Avenue :

12] Modernica, Ital Divani, Bernhardt, Living Divani, Moroso, we could go on-and-on......
