There's no reason that saving space and saving money must come at the expense of stylish living. Muji's compact sofa is sans-arms and super suitable for a tight-squeeze apartment or small guest room. Order it in brown, light grey, or dark grey, toss a few colorful pillows on the seat and a throw over the back, and you'll be looking darn good on a cozy evening on the couch.
CB2's Piazza sofa is made in the United States from soy-based polyfoam and featured a sustainably harvested wood frame. Rest assured, this comfy couch is just as easy on the earth as it is on the eyes. In addition to dove gray (shown here) it's also available in midnight blue.
Australian design duo Nicholas Karlovasitis and Sarah Gibson started their Sydney-based studio Design By Them as a means to bring new and innovative products to the market at home and abroad. Their latest introduction is the Butter Stool, a small seat constructed almost completely from recycled milk containers (and made of 100% post-consumer recycled content). Arriving as a single flat piece for easy hand folding-and-building, it's also available in white, black, grey, beige, blue, green, red & orange.
