Good Questions: Mah Jong Clone?

Hello AT,

I am madly in love with the Roche-Bobois Mah Jong seating system, but it's way, way out of my league economically.

I keep thinking: I do know how to get the *look* (using, say, the silky 9-button pillows and floor cushions from Urban Outfitters), but how do I get decent back support and "spread control"? Is there a way to build a good frame, or to chop off the legs of an existing futon frame or very spare sofa? I can't cope with the thought of people sitting down on my funky, low sofa, which then spreads apart and leaves them with their derrière par terre or back against the wall.

Merci! Diva

Dear Diva,

We bought this cushy lounge system last summer from Pottery Barn (in mature neutrals and dark wood), only to discover it was really from PBTeen. It ain't expensive and it ain't fine furniture, but we REALLY like it and its super comfortable. You could definitely customize something building off of this system.

Anyone else???
