Modern, comfortable, and affordable. These were the requirements for Design Sponge's own sofa search, which is shown step-by-step here at House and Garden. The search toured through too-expensive modern designer classics, sleeper sofas for those without a guest room, and even traditional designs. The search zeroed in on Room and Board's Andre sofa for its tufted back, affordable price tag, and slim dimensions (for fitting through narrow doorways). Design Sponge's search is a help to us all, as pinning down the right sofa can be a challenge.
