Let’s face it, shopping for furniture is never easy – especially if you are on a budget. When we started our search for a new sofa, we knew it had to be affordable (no financing) and it had to be pretty. Also, durable enough to withstand a toddler and small enough to fit in our apartment… but mostly it had to be cheap. So, I set out to find cool sofas under $500 and let me tell you, it was not easy.. but here are a few of my favorite.
The stocksund sofa from Ikea is a real showpiece with tailored cover available in different textures, sewn with piping and pleats. Turned wooden legs add to the detail. Irresistible comfort with thick, soft, pocket-spring cushions.
The Raliegh Dream Convertible is the sort of sofa that you would find in luxury spaces– plush, soft, and surrounded by an aura of expensiveness. Now you too can feel like an elite, by bringing the Raliegh to your home, office, or apartment. 3 seat functions – sofa, lounger, and bed – ensure that you can choose the position most comfortable to you at any time of the day. While the Raliegh sofa is constructed of a wood frame and steel legs, it also includes Dream Coil technology for maximum comfort – and two matching pillows for maximum softness. Enjoy the high-life with the Rudolpho Dream Convertible – perfect for your elegant sitting space!
