How Do You Keep Your Dog Off The Sofa?

Our dog is a sneaky, comfort-seeking beast who apparently is also a little too cool for her dog bed. She wants down and linen, not polyester and foam.

We've tried a few tricks, but the most recent failed attempt made me wonder if finding a solution was impossible. I had begun flipping the chair and sofa seat cushions upright at night to dissuade her climbing up onto them....only to find that she would pull the cushions right off the sofa and and arrange them on the floor for a comfy nights sleep.

So short of caging your dog at night— ours has proven herself an awesome watch dog on several occasions —how do you keep yours off your furniture?
