Beyond IKEA: Why quality, affordable furniture is hard to find - Curbed
(There’re some pretty great leads on decent furniture companies in this piece.)
“When I talk to people I constantly tell them you get what you pay for in furniture. When you see a $400 sofa, it’s got $200 worth of materials in it. When you see a $1,000 sofa, it’s got $500 worth of materials in it,” says BenchMade Modern’s Blazona. “I would say a $1,000 sofa is probably a three- to five-year sofa.”


“If flat-pack shipping isn’t an option, small manufacturers can try disrupting the traditional manufacturing process, which is something Simplicity Sofas, BenchMade Modern, and California-headquartered furniture upstart Joybird all do. Instead of creating many versions of one type of sofa, they buy the raw materials to create a multitude of custom sofas, eschew selling to retailers, and instead offer online ordering and direct-to-consumer shipping.”
