low white sofa via the urbanite / sfgirlbybay


the urbanite.


there’s something so comfy about a low, slouchy sectional sofa. i myself opted for a sectional when i moved to L.A. – i wanted a really cozy, comfortable place to entertain where guests felt welcome to kick off their shoes, parade around barefoot and curl up on a cozy sofa, so i bought a white one with easy to wash slipcovers. i love the look of a real ‘down-low’ sofa, too. it’s oddly kind of sophisticated for being so comfy and almost futon-like – they can look perhaps a bit minimalist moroccan, and then in other settings give off a sort of bohemian beachy look. but i think a low sectional sofa just says, ‘come on in, have a cocktail and make yourself at home’.

a few great sources for the slouchy sofa look are the Belgian Linen Edlyn and tassa both at anthropologie; this Collins Marled Chenille Sofa; a low bench or platform bed or daybed; or even a twin bed with a little imagination can be used as a slouchy sofa. in one of my first studio apartments, i pushed a twin bed and box spring up against the wall, without a frame directly on the floor and added a big white quilt and bunch of mismatched print throw pillows and voilá – instant seating area in a really small space (for not a lot of money!). forgive me the many, many images and examples here, but there’s a lot of looks to choose from when it comes to down-low comfort and coziness.
