High End to Low Cost - Sofas

With all of the different variations of sofas out there, It is never easy to simply and quickly find the perfect one that fits into your design scheme as well as in your budget. 

If you are on a search for a new couch and do not know where to start in your buying process, here is a great cost breakdown of several awesome brands that range from high to lower budgets. 
This list has been divided into three categories based on price: 1) high-end furniture in the low thousands and up, 2) mid-range sofas from $1,000 to $3,000, and 3) budget sofas under $1,000.

High-End Sofas: Low Thousands and Up

Prices on Baker sofas depend on styles and upholstery options, and start around the low thousands, moving up from there. Shown left is the Neue Sofa.
