The year 2012 has been a fantastic year for SimplicitySofas. We rolled out a new website and along with that a new collection, The Megan, which our customers loved immediately. Perfectly proportioned, the Megan collection features a classic design that blends the best of traditional and transitional styling in a versatile design scaled for smaller rooms. Entertain with confidence in understated elegance.This is furniture designed for small rooms and tight spaces that does not sacrifice quality or comfort.

We won several awards throughout the year, including the ‘Best of Market’ award from Furniture Today Magazine and we rounded out the year by winning the $20,000 Grand Prize in an SMB Innovators Contest.

We enter the New Year energized and as committed as ever to our business and our customers. We’ll keep delivering the very best customer service possible and collecting great testimonials. We hope to connect with you through our social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, and of course Pinterest. Our Pinterest Page features a board dedicated specifically to small spaces. We call it the ‘Small Space Community‘ Board and we welcome you to come on over and ‘pin’ with us.

 

We look forward to another great year for Simplicity Sofas. We’ll continue delivering great service and coming up with new and interesting decorating ideas for small spaces. We thank all of you who’ve supported us. Happy New Year everyone.

Functional for family, friends or any occasion … That’s what we had in mind when we designed our Sectional for your varied lifestyle.

Our Exceptional Sectional Debuts

Available in all 5 collections, this Exceptional Sectional still demands our promise of quality and long-lasting durability. The design makes it especially easy to transport up flights of stairs, through elevators, boat hatches, RVs and 5th-wheel units. Like all other Simplicity Sofas products, it is easy-to-assemble in minutes with no tools.

You’ve always longed for comfortable living with a Sectional, now you have it; and you can place it anywhere! You can design it to fit your needs, whether it’s just for you or the entire family.

Design your own configuration or give us a call and we’ll help you decide the best fit for your space. Select your style from our Collections Page. Then add the pieces as needed.

It is possible to have a sleeper with the sectional as long as you have 3 arm or armless sections in a row.

About the Company

December 9, 2009 by  
Filed under Sofa Studio

In November, 2007, a few weeks before our current recession began, Simplicity Sofas opened its factory doors with No sales, No backlog and No commitments and a brand new product that nobody had ever heard of.  In the recession the furniture industry has been one of the hardest hit sectors of the economy.  Hundreds of well known companies closed down or moved overseas.  Small furniture businesses were particularly hard hit.  Defying these industry statistics, Simplicity Sofas has grown quickly and profitably. The company has never taken a loan and has no debt.

This year we are on target to hit $1 million in sales. That may not seem like much to other manufacturers who can sell more than that in a single order to a large retailer.  Simplicity Sofas, however, does not sell to retailers, wholesalers or distributors. Every order is shipped direct to an individual consumer. That’s nearly 800 individual orders annually.

The most important part of our phenomenal success in this harsh economic environment is the loyalty and enthusiasm of our customers.  There are hundreds of testimonials about our products and service on blogs and other web sites. We are also extremely proud that we have now shipped our furniture to more than 1500 individual customers over more than 3 years and have never received a negative review.  That does not mean our customers never have any complaints or problems.  It does mean that when there is a complaint or problem we take care of it.

Consider This Before Buying a Sofa

Are you shopping for your new living room suite or looking for an apartment sofa to fit in just the right space? There are a few things to consider as you begin your search. Obviously, the first thing you think of is style.

Which style of furniture inspires you – traditional, contemporary, or a more versatile transitional look? If you’re not sure, take a look in your closet which reveals a lot about who you are by the clothes you wear. My closet is a mixture of designer deals that I found at department stores and shabby chic shirts and jackets from little boutiques or catalogs. If you can’t quite define your style, that’s OK too. As you are looking for your apartment sofa for your studio or living room, you will start to realize what inspires you.

One of the MOST important things to consider when looking for furniture is – Will it FIT on the elevator, up my stairs, around the corner and through the door? I can not tell you how many times I have heard stories of someone buying a sofa and having it delivered, only to realize that when they got it home, it simply would not fit. You won’t have that problem with Simplicity Sofas, as they are shipped in three boxes and assemble in 15 minutes with no tools required.

Consider quality and warranties. Is the frame made of solid hardwoods or particle board? Do the frames have a lifetime warranty?

Also consider design options. Can the pieces be slipcovered? How many coordinating fabrics are available from which to choose? Does the company offer pet-proof fabrics? Can they offer complimentary design advice?

We pride ourselves in offering advice on furniture construction, room planning and color coordination. Please leave us a comment or question you may have and we will be happy to answer it. Chances are, there are a lot of people wondering the same thing as you. We’re here to help! Check back often as we update this section with furniture tips and articles to help educate you about your furniture purchases and caring for your furniture.
