In many ways, the sofa that Florence Knoll designed for Knoll Associates in 1954 is the perfect sofa: beautiful, elegant, and yet minimal enough to figure in an interior with pieces in all kinds of different styles. Perhaps that's why it's inspired so many imitators. The good news is that even if you can't afford the Knoll sofa's ten thousand dollar price tag, there are still plenty of lovely midcentury-style pieces out there. Here are nine of our favorites, in a huge spectrum of prices to suit any budget.

Above: This is the gold standard, the Florence Knoll sofa, as seen on AD Magazine. It's available from Hive Modern starting at $10,375.

Kennewick sofa, $999.99 from Dot & Bo. (This one looks to be more or less a straight-up knockoff of the Knoll sofa, so if that sort of thing bothers you, I'd advise avoiding this one.)
