Murphy 80″ Sofa

Oh, how we love emerald green! OK, so this isn’t quite the same blue-tinted shade of emerald that was Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2014. It’s more of a rich, jewel-toned version that veers into forest green territory. And it’s the color of choice for the Murphy 80″ Sofa from Room & Board. With low arms and a sculptural frame, it’s sure to be the centerpiece of any room…

Sectional Sofas

Chaise Sectional

We end with a pair of sectionals that boast striking features. Like faux fur upholstery! Say hello to the Chaise Sectional with Reversible Moonrock Dense Phur / Moonboot Cracked Microleather Covers from Lovesac. While this “phur” is long and thick, it’s definitely fake! Plus, a dark gray color makes it easy to pair with decor in a variety of hues. The non-phur portions of this piece are Moonboot Cracked Microleather, which has the look of leather but the feel of velvet. While the piece appears to be sold out at this time, you can order one of the other models with this finish, such as the Loveseat.
