A Modern Sofa That Is Not Boxy?

A Modern Sofa That Is Not Boxy?

Q: I've fallen hard for the David Weeks Sculpt Sofa that is outside my budget in this lifetime. Is anyone designing sofas that aren't boxy? Everything I see, high, low, and medium, all seem very rectangular, masculine, and solid. I'm NYC based. I can't be the only one who loves the Sculpt Sofa. Can the community direct me to showrooms/studios/stores that have less boxy options? Thanks.

Editor: Contrary to your opinion, I find the Sculpt Sofa to be very masculine — but asymmetrical. The Sculpt Sofa was designed for Ralph Pucci — super high-end! If you're looking for a something similar to the Sculpt at a lower price point, check out BluDot's Swept Sofa ($1,800) or if you're looking for something for feminine you might check out these modern, but un-boxy designs:

Tom Dixon by George Smith
Alphabet Modular Sofa by Piero Lissoni
Noguchi Freeform Sofa from Vitra
Cirrus from Room & Board
Canterbury Sofa from Crate & Barrel

Who else has suggestions for Meret?
