Help me out ladies! I am on the prowl for a big, comfy sofa for our family and need to spend less than $1000. I would like it to be sturdy and inviting. Most likely with a section that has an attached footstool. (A sectional, but with backrest only on one side). I have found one sofa that fits the bill at ikea, but it isn't as plush as I'd like. Any thoughts on where else to look?

i'm also on the hunt... most furnature places are much pricier than Ikea unfortuately, and i don't love their styles as well... this is the one i am likely buying:  http://www.daniafurniture.com/living/sectionals/item/3475 - the store is local for me.  good luck!

That is really cute!  I went ahead and got the Karlstad Ikea couch, it came to about $900.  It is really sturdy and comfy, I am happy with it.

I've had a Karl for about three years.  I don't think it's comfy at all but I bought it for it's mid-century lines.  It's also not sturdy, unless you flip it up side down every other month and tighten it back up.

We found our sectional at a small local furniture store that sold Ashley furniture at a discount. They had things like you're describing for under $1000, and they'll negotiate especially if it's in stock. Go on Google maps and see what locally owned stores you have around.

big lots or furniture factory outlet around here.  its really going to vary by your location since many furniture stores are regional
