Hello AT, I'm in the process of choosing a small scale sofa for my apartment and I've narrowed it down to three options: 1)"Dexter" (75") from Bob Gold Mitchell Williams...

2)"Bantam" (73") from DWR and 3)"André" from Room and Board. I like them all about equally, but everyone I've asked (including my boyfriend, who will have to live with it) says Dexter is BY FAR the best and I'm not sure why. So my question is this: Are my people right? Is Dexter the superior sofa? And if he is, can someone articulate what, exactly, makes him so special? Thanks! Kate
Dear Kate, Between these three companies you are dealing with equal quality. In fact, Mitchell Gold Bob Williams started off as a furniture manufacturer and still builds for Crate & Barrel and others as well. So, what we are deciding on here mainly is STYLE, which is totally personal. As far as style goes, we do LIKE the Dexter's tad bit more of sophistication. We like the two pillows over the unicushion. We really like the Andre, however, but consider this style different from the first two. If you want a MadMen 50's look, you really want to go Dexter. If you want something a bit more contemporary, go Andre.... Anyone else?
