The second I saw the living room in my new apartment, I knew I wanted a long sofa wrapping around the perimeter of the space to provide lots of inviting seating that would take complete advantage of the space. I love the idea of a modular sofa that you can customize to your room, and I also knew the piece would have to be fairly low to avoid blocking the plethora of windows around the room! When I saw Article’s Gaba Sofa, I knew I’d found the perfect piece for my new apartment, with an elegant low profile, fluffy back cushions, and a light yet durable fabric that could hold up to Leo’s antics! Get a first look into my new apartment’s living room below.
I’ve always admired Article’s original modern furniture designs, and this modular sofa is a great example of the clean, mid-century-inspired style that defines their collections. I love how wide and deep the Gaba article is, with firm seat cushions and fluffy, fiber and feather back cushions that provide perfect support. I used a right-arm module on the end by my front door, to define the edge of the area, and it just happens to be Leo’s favorite place to sit and look out the window! If you have key architectural or room design features in your home that you want to highlight, a modular sofa like this that can be easily customized to fit your layout is a great option. All the pieces can be purchased separately and clip together securely underneath for a truly individualized layout.
Article offers free ground shipping on orders over $999, and there are affordable options for in-room delivery and assembly. I opted for this service and having the pieces unboxed and set-up in place made the whole install process so seamless! There’s also a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, so if you’re not completely happy with your purchase they will come right back and pick up your pieces for a refund (minus the delivery fee which is typically $49).
This is EXACTLY the piece I imagined for this room when I first started picturing the design in here, and I couldn’t be more in love with the Gaba Sofa! The room feels so light, inviting, and functional with this modular design. Article does an amazing job curating their collections so that all of their pieces work seamlessly together. They makes it so easy to find quality pieces at a great price point that just work. For more light and bright spaces check out their Refresh lookbook. It has tons of pages of beautiful inspiration to elevate your home. See all of their products on Article.com!
