Good Questions: Black Modern Couch Recommendations?

Bret is on the hunt for the perfect black couch but is having a hard time finding a black couch in mid-century style:

Dear Apt. Therapy,
Help! Why is it so hard to find a black mid-century modern styled couch? I keep finding great couches that I can afford, however, they usually come in every color BUT black...

I'm looking for something about 7 ft long that resembles either of these couches from Crate & Barrel or Plummers. I don't prefer a specific fabric as long as it's black -- and of course, has sexy legs (wood legs are better)! I have been actively searching the LA craigslist as well as stores in Long Beach and along Beverly Blvd for the past two months. Any help would be much appreciated! -Brett

We're owners of seating from local mid-century style furnishing shop, Modernica, so we immediately checked their site for a couch that fit your description and found this Split Rail Couch that is available in Chataqua Ebony (100% Nylon), King's Road Onyx (100% Olefin), Spirit Black (Naugahyde Vinyl) or Premium Leather Black.

There are a few other modernist styles available to peruse that come in black upholstery to consider also, but the one above is our personal favourite of the bunch. Anyone else with some suggestions for Brett?
