Azeem is looking for help choosing a sofa: "Hi AT! I'm new to the city and trying to furnish an apartment for the first time. I've been using your website for ideas -- it's really great! I think I am getting close to settling on a lot of the big pieces in the living/dining area (2 of the Pisa shelves in ebony from Room and Board, a 48" Nelson coffee table/bench, a 42" Axis table from Room and Board with a maple top, four of the Eames "Eiffel" side chairs in white) but i am having a lot of trouble with the couch." Check below the jump for the two sofas that Azeem is considering to go with the items pictured above and cast your vote...

Archer

"I don't have a lot of room to work with. I figure the largest couch that I could fit in the room would be around 80 x 36, and it'd probably help if it were smaller. After a lot of hunting, I think it's between the Archer sofa in tuscany tweed from Room and Board or the Eames compact sofa in smoke."

Eames Compact

"Obviously, the price point of the Archer is pretty nice, but I'd be curious to know how you'd evaluate the two sofas (given the other pieces in the room). I'm hoping to order everything before the Herman Miller sale ends on Saturday. Thanks a bunch for your help."
