I recently admired UK designer Russell Pinch’s curvacious Goddard sofa, which manages to be both modern and romantic at the same time. So I took note when I saw an eerily similar doppelganger recently for a fraction of the price.


Above: Pinch’s velvet Goddard Sofa is constructed of coconut fiber, horse hair, natural latex, and wool, all on a frame of sustainably harvested solid beech hardwood; $6,820 from The Future Perfect.


Above: Room & Board’s new Murphy Sofa has a similar profile, with a slightly elevated height. It’s available in a cotton velvet upholstery in 15 color choices; the 81-inch sofa is $1,399.
