Sofa Love, Part 2: Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams
Oh my! I just discovered the fabulous array of sofas made by Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams. How did I not realize how awesome they were ’til now?
In my search for the perfect mid-century inspired sofa for my living room, I almost settled on one from Crate and Barrel. But I didn’t love the company, and I was torn between the retro style of the Petrie sofa:and the clean, sleek lines of the Camden model:
I’m glad I didn’t spring for either of them yet.
Because, I now know that my one true sofa love is out there: the Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams Dexter Sofa. It’s the perfect blend of clean, sleek lines with funky mid-century style.This beauty doesn’t come cheap. It costs more than I’ve ever spent furnishing an entire room, let alone buying one piece of furniture.
But it’s an investment, right? And when you invest in a good piece of furniture for your grown-up life, that piece should be one that you love. One that comes from a highly reputable company. Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams‘ company sure fits the bill:
- Environmental stewardship. These guys are serious about taking care of the environment, and minimizing their company’s impact on it.
- Quality products. It’s a well-known fact that they make good stuff. ‘Nuff said.
- Made in the USA. No thanks, China, I don’t need your crappy and often poisonous products.
- Social responsibility. The company runs a non-profit daycare for employees at their North Carolina headquarters. They also have an educational scholarship program.
What else can you ask for in a furniture company?
Do you have any furniture companies that you think are equally as awesome?
