I'm digging the sofa with bottom storage look. West Elm has discontinued their modular seating with open base storage. Todd Oldham gives how-to instructions in "Handmade Modern: Mid-Century Inspired Projects for Your Home," but I don't have the space for a workshop. Any ideas on where I can buy similar ready-made lounge/bookshelf units?

AT-NY fielded a similar question recently, and folks in NY had plenty of ideas, including DWR's pricey Havana sofa, which, in any case is best suited for bedding storage, Home Reserve's Storage Sofas, Z Futon's Storage Sleepers, Touch of Ginger's Pullman Storage Sofa, Istikbal's Sofa Beds, Eco Furniture's Romeo Daybed with additional pillows, and Wieder Sofabeds.
It does appear that it's hard to find an open storage option. Your best bet might be to approach a carpenter (maybe even with Todd Oldham's DIY plan) and ask for exactly what you need.
