Night and Day Sleep Sofa $588
I'm always on the lookout for inexpensive and stylish furniture sources. I had read on some design blogs about the furnishings sold by Urban Outfitters with more than a few reservations. I can't even go into the store without feeling old--probably because everyone who works there calls me M'am. Those of us looking for furniture for "the grown and sexy" would normally stick to (big) sister store Anthropologie. Imagine my surprise when I browsed online and found a really nice selection of sofas and tables--all at really reasonable prices.
Metal Accordian Side Table $60
They also offer some really nice tufted velvet headboards and slipper chairs, again at great prices. The only caveat is that nearly all of their items are available online only. That's true of a lot of vendors (Target is a good example). But for those of you on an Ikea budget, who want something perhaps not so easily recognizable, Urban Outfitters is a good place to check out.
