Sit a Spell: 10 Memorable Modern Sofas

The times, they are a-changin’.  Gone are the days of overstuffed, overly-stuffy sofas with scratchy tapestries covering uncomfortable cushions atop overwrought frames; thankfully, today’s modern sofas suit a wide array of aesthetic leanings and range from minimal and sleek to luxurious and chic.  Some designers are daring, like Hoops with their wire frames and Antonio Citterio with his modular approach, while others, such as Thackery for Anthropologie, simply update the classics like — for example — the Chesterfield.  Whatever your taste, there’s something to sink into in today’s comfy roundup.
