H.D. Buttercup

Best Comfy Contemporary Couches, March 2006

Too often contemporary couches have the sitting appeal of a ’58 Edsel—stiff backed, with an angle of repose guaranteed to shred your spine. But at Spazio di Vita (in H.D. Buttercup), the couches are not only mod—sleek metal and wood frames, low-slung backrests—but comfy and plentiful. Two hundred fabrics and 50 kinds of leather fill the store, while goose down fills the couches (for those allergic to down, there’s synthetic). The showroom’s full-grain leather Fleetwood model will look fantastic in your Neutra apartment, and its kidney-shaped pillows will have you feeling great, too.
