Our new, freshly manufactured prototype, of modern sofa.

MIG Furniture Design, Inc.November 30, 2012
This is freshly manufactured prototype of our new modern sectional sofa that we will add to our 2013 collection http://www.modern1furniture.com/modern-living-room-c-27.html. Need your opinion, what do you think?

To be completely honest, the back looks too high and also looks odd with the untufted band. I'd make the back a bit lower with one-piece tufted back.

I agree, the back headrests look too high. When there down do they stick out past the back? I don't like untufted band either and in the shot from the left it looks like a vertical brake is missing. I don't care for the side looking like an inserted panel, for some reason it looks strange. Don't bother with the 2 cushions, file 13 that idea.
Can we see how the chaise connects to the sofa and the back side of the sectional as well.

I know this is a prototype, so what type of fabric choices are you planning to make available.

It's too boxy and has too much tufting for my taste. What market do you hope to sell this in? Because the squareness of the shape tells me contemporary, but the tufting says traditional. To me, anyway.

Reminds me a bit of this sofa. Not a fan. Maybe because I am too lazy to even consider the effort vacuuming all that would take.

hollybar, If you think that picture of the sofa from RH is bad, humour yourself and go see it in there store. Mind you, for 7000 you can probably buy all kinds of things to make you laugh. Dirt/lint/hair grabber, just horrible!!! Hopefully MIG is not choosing the same fabric as RH.

Don't think it is only just the traditional/contemporary aspect olldbob mentioned, to me it is also very European also limiting it's market. I couldn't agree more with hollybar with respect to the cleaning, pet hair would have a place in every tuft.

MIG, I have to ask, where do you get the ideas for these pieces of furniture?

Debating whether to give my opinion. . . . . . hmmmmmm! Ok, it reminds me of a casket! Sorry, but it does remind me of that. :(

I like it. I like the overall boxy shape with the thinner high back. I agree with ne comments about the untufted horizontal band though. Could you try tufting it?

I don't like it. Here's why...i feel that modern furniture is usually such a treat for the eye with the sleek and airy lines. Traditional on the other hand is usually comforting to look at and comfortable to sit on. Your couch does not look that comfortable and the proportions are awkward so it is not delightful to the eye. As someone mentioned, the back is to high. Also, the arms are too thick and clunky looking. I also agree that the portion of couch without tufting does nothing to add to the overall success of the piece. The back piece is too thin relative to the arms. By the way, I don 't like the RH sofa either.
