Alexa writes, "Hi! I love the stuff you guys find and have no idea how you always know where to go. I have a bit of a different request for you all... I will be moving into a lovely extremely tiny apartment but need help with a couch. The apartment is a super tall loft, lots of brick, wood floors, refurb'd factory and I love love love the Kensington and Savoy leather collections from Restoration Hardware (really all of their leather stuff is great) but they are wildly out of my budget. Can you help me find something along those lines that doesn't look super cheap but won't break my bank? Thanks for any help!"
Hi Alexa! Yikes! 3+K for a couch is a bit steep, no matter how luxe it is! I've found some alternatives that will have your new space looking fab in no time, hopefully without draining your savings account. (Just make sure to double-check delivery fees before you buy!)
1. Allnat Furniture Sofa ($1,124) - bonded leather
2. Rome Convertible Sofa ($450) - faux leather
3. Portfolio Trace Renu Leather Futon Sofa ($479) - leather
4. La-Z-Boy William Leather Sofa ($1,370) - leather
5. Franklin Austin Brown Sofa ($800) - faux leather

Layla here: At a strapping 5'2", I've got plenty of tricks up my sleeve for fellow petite girls who need to look fashion fabulous. Plus, I make all of my beauty purchases online just so I can get free trial size samples in the mail. If you're not sure about a product, chances are I've tried it! I'd be glad to recommend my favs. I also have a knack for men's apparel and gifts, especially geek guy gifts, thanks to the expertise of my own gadget-inclined guy.
