10 Easy Pieces: The California Dude Sofa


10 Easy Pieces: The California Dude Sofa

October 5, 2016

Over the course of the past five years, most of my male friends have gone from wearing “whatever” to wearing selvedge raw denim and shirts made of organic cotton and carrying reclaimed military drab backpacks. The equivalent in interior design? The California Dude Sofa. Upholstered in natural (sometimes vintage) canvas or leather and often seen with a welded steel frame, here are our favorites of the new sofa style.
