Thanks to their unique designs and quality construction, Kardiel is one of our absolute favorite direct-to-consumer sources for mid-century modern sofas. And right now, lots of those sofas are discounted by up to 33 percent as part of their Spring Sale, which includes a wide range of sizes, colors, fabrics, and designs. Founded by four family members who share a passion for modernism, Kardiel partners with expert designers to craft quality sofas in small batches, and they occasionally remanufacture iconic MCM pieces as well. Their sale is a great chance to score a sofa you really love and upgrade your space for less. Here are our favorites.

Kardiel's Biknit Sofa is designed to bring big MCM style to small spaces. It has a slim, solid hardwood frame and is upholstered in super-soft performance velvet that's great for homes with kids or pets. There's also a textured bouclé upholstery option if you're going for a truly vintage look.

We fell in love with the Eleanor Sofa at first sight after spotting it in a tour of Victor's organic, mid-century California bungalow. While Victor opted for the leather version in cognac to complement the earthy, moody vibe of his living room, the Eleanor is also available in some bright velvet options, as well as a nubby twill.

Kardiel also has some stylish sleeper sofas, and our favorite may be The Omer, which doesn't really look like a sleeper at all. It's as loungey and comfy as a sofa, and the back folds down to create a Twin-sized bed for overnight guests.

Based on a classic 1950s design but improved with comfier cushions and performance upholstery, the Jackie 67" Sofa is a great find for small spaces. With its tailored silhouette, hand-sewn buttons, and dense cushions, it's just as cozy as it is sophisticated.

A stylish sofa that can double as a daybed, The Wyatt is a smart, stylish choice for a multi-tasking space. Its integrated coffee table gives it a retro feel, and an attached leather headrest makes it the perfect spot for an afternoon nap.

We'd love to see this curvy sofa paired with brassy lighting, an Art Deco coffee table, and maybe a shaggy rug for a glamorous Hollywood Regency look. It could also be the star in a more minimal space thanks to its elegant silhouette and lush velvet upholstery.

Kardiel's Florence Sofa is an updated (and more comfortable) twist on the classic 1956 Florence Knoll sofa series. Whether you choose pretty pink velvet or black or white leather, you can't go wrong with this two-seater, especially at this price.

If you have a small space but still want a sofa you can really sink into, consider The Domus. It's 77" wide but has extra-deep seats and plush, generously sized back cushions. But as cushy as it is, it still has a very modern, clean look.

The Kendall Sofa is one of Kardiel's most glamorous designs, with a wingback frame, channeled upholstery, and shiny gold metal legs. It's available in two decadent velvet upholstery options, both of which are stain and fade resistant.

Another stylish sleeper option, The Orson has a coastal vibe and folds out to a Twin XL bed for lounging. It has extra-thick cushions for a cozy feel whether it's being used as a sofa or a bed, as well as a sturdy solid wood frame.
