Where can I find a beautiful but affordable sofa for my small apartment? I saw a post on another blog recently suggesting I should invest in key pieces like a sofa, but the "investment" prices (above $1000) just aren't possible for me. Help!

Dear Lady who needs a seat,
Don't listen to anyone who says you need to spend a great deal of money on a sofa. There are plenty of beautiful sofas with well-made frames that can last you a lifetime - especially if you re-upholster or slipcover.
For those readers who watch Bravo television's "Million Dollar Decorators," follow Jeffrey Allen Mark's advice: "Decorating doesn't have to be expensive. You just have to know how to put together the right things." Marks was challenged by one of his million dollar clients to decorate a house in Nantucket entirely by using catalog furniture (nothing custom).
Depending on your style, here are a few "catalog" suggestions:
Hope these help!
