At Remodelista, we often feature sofa designs that are economical to mid-range in price, but for readers in search of a truly luxury sofa, we decided to cover our bases (plus, one can dream).
There are sofas past and present that are priced upward of $60K, but in our book, expense alone does not merit quality. This roundup includes our most-dreamed-of luxury sofas, and while none of them are $60K, all tend to ring in above the $8K mark.
Above: New York City atelier Dimitry & Co. designs some of our favorite luxe sofas. Take this style, the Belgard sofa with a curved back and arms and linen upholstery. Prices start at $9,375. For more, see our post Belgium by Way of Manhattan: Dmitriy & Co. Above: Designer Rose Uniacke makes a suite of perfect sofas. Shown here is the Classic Sofa with a design “based on the outlines of Howard & Sons’ ‘Baring’ sofa and using the patented elastic seat design of 1866.” Made with feather and down cushioned arms and seat, the sofa requires 20 meters of fabric for production. $9,653.63 for the medium size through Rose Uniacke. For other sofas by Uniacke, see her Drawing Room Sofa, Serpentine Sofa, and Studio Sofa. Above: The Antonio Citterio-designed Charles Large Sofa by B&B Italia is a Remodelista favorite (see our post 5 Favorites: The Ultimate Architect-Designed Sofa). It comes in a range of sizes and configurations, one of which has a chaise-like extension. Contact B&B Italia for pricing and more information. Above: Designed by Vincent Van Duysen for Molenti, the Lucas Sofa is a single-seat cushion sofa with technical upholstery fabric or leather. Contact Molenti for price and ordering information.

Designed in 1962 and still in production via Frederica Furniture, you can find the sofa for CA $22,295 at Mjölk in Toronto. Above: Of course the De Padova Raffles Sofa wins a spot on our list.
