Midcentury sofas have an enduring appeal, anchoring a room and mixing well with other pieces, both modern and traditional. Here we present our 10 current midcentury-style favorites with price tags under $2,000.


Above: Room & Board’s André Sofa is made of engineered hardwood with suspension coils; $1,899 for the 101-inch sofa.


Above: The Paxton Sofa is a fabric sofa on a mango wood frame; $998 in ivory and blue at Urban Outfitters.


Above: The Carl Sofa on a wood frame is $1,199 from Bryght.


Above: West Elm’s Antwerp Sofa has a sort of Finn Juhl quality with sloped arms and tapered wood legs. We can’t speak to how the sofa holds up (the core is foam padding), but we’ve seen this one in person and for $1,499 think it’s a great mid-level sofa.


Above: The 96-inch three-seater Jasper Sofa is $1,399 at Room & Board.


Above: West Elm’s Hamilton Leather Sofa reminds us of Børge Mogensen’s 2213 Sofa; starts at $1,699.


Above: From startup furniture company Greycork, the flatpack Sofa is built of Baltic Birch ply and measures 75 inches; $700 at Greycork.


Above: Restoration Hardware’s only sofa to ring in under the $2,000 price point is the seven-foot Sorensen Upholstered Sofa. The sofa starts at $1,610 with army duck upholstery and a 33-inch classic depth.


Above: The Bryght Anton Fog Sofa is available in gray and blue for $1,149.


Above: One of Ikea’s best offerings in the category of sofas is the Stockholm Sofa (we’ve heard it lasts longer than the others); $899 at Ikea.
