Forget the Futon!

If you are looking for furniture for small spaces, or have a small doorway, tight stairs or an elevator which makes it virtually impossible for you to get “real” furniture into your studio loft or small apartment, you don’t have to settle for futons. Our sofas, small apartment sofas, loveseats, chairs and storage ottomans are the answer to all your needs when it comes to getting affordable furniture through these tight spaces. You can choose from 70 fabric combinations, including pet-proof fabrics and slipcovers.

Simplicity Sofas Sleeper Sofa

Even our full-size sofas, which can accommodate our wonderful 20 inch deep queen size air sleep system, fits through the smallest spaces, so you or your guests have a place to relax and then rest comfortably on a real sofa bed. Apartment sofas, which are a little smaller than our full-size sofas work great in small spaces and are an excellent alternative to futons. You don’t need to settle for small, uncomfortable ready-to-assemble furniture, when you have Simplicity Sofas as your alternative quality showroom seating.

Our line of sofas and chairs is designed to ship in 3 boxes and assembles in less than 15 minutes without tools, with the look and feel of showroom quality living room or family room furniture. The frames are made of solid oak and come with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE. Your guests will be impressed and much more comfortable sitting on a real sofa or in a real chair, than a futon.

Winter coziness has opened its windows to Spring and Summer liveliness and Simplicity Sofas is excited about helping you bring color and functionality to your lifestyle. It’s no secret that the housing market is down right now and people are looking for new and exciting ways to make their existing homes or small apartments their havens.

Adding some color to your life and continuing to create an inviting space that you can enjoy with friends and family during these wonderful seasons will make all the difference.

Simplicity Sofas can help you brighten up your space for the Spring and Summer months and make it bloom inside with easy-to-assemble quality furniture, new fabric selections and colorful slipcovers.

Brandon CollectionIf you’re thinking about purchasing a new sofa, love seat or chair, keep in mind these can become some of your more versatile pieces by adding brightly colored slipcovers.

We took the Brandon sofa, chair and ottoman, covered them in slipcovers of green and blue hues – – bringing the colors of the outdoors in. It made the room cheery and welcoming for the ensuing Spring and Summer months, reflecting the green of the grass and the blue of the sky…

Here’s just a few quick tips –

1. Accent your new furniture by moving some accessories or artwork from one room to another creating a simple, but new look.

2. Paint something: Whether it’s just some old baskets or pots you use for indoor plants and flowers, adding a little bit of color will lighten up your day.

3. Update those dark picture frames with colorful spray paint to match your new decor.

4. If it’s time to clean out the fireplace, do it and try putting a decorative flower arrangement or colorful candles inside instead.

What a difference just a few things can make!

A sailboat, houseboat or sea cruiser may sometimes seem a little small in comparison to the vast waters we choose to navigate, but when it comes to comfort and outfitting her in style, Simplicity Sofas has the answer to  marine seating and sleeper sofas for your boating lifestyle.

As a boater, there are few better things to do than maneuver in style and comfort on any waters, regardless of your type of boat. That’s where Simplicity Sofas can meet your needs and accommodate you with boat sofas, chairs and sleeper sofas. Boat sofas, couches and other seating from Simplicity Sofas are available online or in our showroom located in High Point, NC.

Check out our satisfied customer testimonials:

Yes, we received the sofa. It is beautiful, and we love it! I was amazed at the quality of the construction, and at how easy it was to put together. It took longer to unpack the pieces from the boxes than it did to assemble it. We had the whole thing together and were sitting on it in less than ten minutes. It’s very comfortable, and will work well in our space. Because we are installing it on a boat, we needed something that could fit through a narrow pilot house door. We are both very pleased not to be stuck with a futon, but to have a real piece of comfortable furniture. This is the only way we could have furnished our boat, and we’re glad we found your website. I would not hesitate to recommend your products to anyone. Thank you for your prompt, friendly service.

Holiday Decorating Your Small Space

December 9, 2008 by  
Filed under Design Studio

Small apartments or studio lofts need to change a little for the Holidays. Granted, you have created your own image and added the perfect“decor,” but you need to add or change somethings here or there for the holidays.

For some it’s easy, for others you’re thinking …. “Hmmm … I have everything in place for my lifestyle; where do I put all these holiday decorations so they do not over crowd what I have already accomplished? How do I put more things into this small space?”

It can be a daunting task. But you don’t have to spend your Holiday bonus on over-decorating to make it a Winter Wonderland.  Here are some ideas to get your Holiday decorating off to the right start if you live in a small space.

Consider these choices.

Work with what you have. Move a chair from one corner of the room to another (or to another room entirely!) to create some space for additional gatherings for guests to stand and mingle.

Place a small holiday tree in that space.

Arrange your tree and decorations on top of an already existing accent table and do not bother moving anything. Create your own festive design in that space, if you choose.

Mantle Beware! Overcrowding the mantle will make your space seem even smaller. Simple candles and some Holiday pictures of days gone by will do just fine.

If you are weary of moving things around, try stacking poinsettias on top of different sized boxes bunched together in the room to create a festive focal point. You can pick up empty boxes in any size from any grocery. Turn the boxes upside down, drape some fabric around the bases, place your poinsettias (which will last forever) on the boxes and you’re done.

It only takes up a little space and your apartment sofa or chair doesn’t need to be moved to accommodate this. Your guests won’t ever have to ‘guess’ where to place their party gifts. They’ll know to place them right around your poinsettia tree.

I thought of a great idea today, too. Take your old twinkling lights (that are still working from last year, right?) and wrap them around your tallest plant(s). Sit back and relax to your favorite music and watch them twinkle. Hang a Charlie Brown red ornament or “your” favorite ornament on the plant if it works for you.

Or … bunch a few different sized plants together (tall, small and wide) and wrap the twinkling lights around them. You can do this to create a holiday experience in many rooms.

What are you are doing in your small space this season? We would love to hear from you so we can post your ideas and share your joy! Let us know what works for you.
