A Fun New Sofa Source!

I’m always on the look out for new sources for furniture- especially upholstered goods that can be customized. This week I was searching for a sofa for an e-design client and came across this company Roger + Chris.  These guys make a great selection of sofas and chairs available in a TON of various fabrics!  And bonus, the pricing is SO good, you can do C.O.M (customer’s own material) and the pieces are made right here in the USA!  The example of their work that really sold me was this pink English roll arm number, very reminiscent of the pinned-to-death pink sofa of Atlanta’s Ann Mashburn. turns out they have THREE different pink fabrics… be still my heart!

Just take a look at all these great examples and all the fabrics they have available on their site. Have any of you ordered from them and have an experience to share? I’m eager to hear some!

In doing some research on the company, I found this spread from Lonny about the actual Roger and Chris’ renovated Victorian home in Upstate New York. It’s a little bolder than I  like, but it shows their personality and has such quirkiness that I think it’s a fun example of mixing antiques and modern decor.

  1. These guys are the best. For me, Chris acted as customer service and was so helpful, giving me honest opinions and help with a few design choices. I couldn’t be happier.

    1. Love that their products are made in the USA and the variety and styles they offer. Thanks for sharing Erin!

      I am in the market for a sofa…I would LOVE to hear more about the comfort from those of you who own a Roger + Chris sofa!

  2. We just put in an order on a sofa a few weeks ago, and have been super impressed so far with the customer service!

  3. Seriously- This is like designers porn!! Couches in 50 shades of gorgeous colors! I’ve got pink! I’ve got blue! I’ve got green! The couches of champions! I’ve got tufted! I’ve got welted! I’ve got straight arm, chesterfield, rolled arm- oh MY! Love them all- if only I had the rooms for all of them!

  4. Thanks so much for posting about this; I’ve been eyeing the Basel & the Blythe (possibly in leather) for our new house. I just love that everything (even the fabrics) are made in the USA but not being able to see it in person had me a little hesitant. So happy to hear that people are happy with the customer service and the finished product!

  5. I’m curious why you don’t post any of the projects you are working on? You do kind of general design posts but you never update us on what projects you have going on. Why is this?

    1. Because my big projects take years to complete- and e-design projects I don’t get to photograph- and we do so many of those. I also am planning on another book so I have to save a lot for that as of right now. I’ve been so busy and not able to go shoot anything yet since finishing the last book, and not all clients want their homes shared. Also, magazines will not publish any work if it’s been shared on blogs- it stinks, but it’s the rule these days and getting press is important for business. I try to share what I can from my own home and will try to share bits and pieces in the coming months of some projects when I can.

      1. is it worth it to constrain the content of your blog for the possibility of print in a magazine?
        There are few titles and ever fewer newstands committing space to home (I think “shelter” magazines) and young people aren’t buying these magazines anyway. Although I love physical magazines and still buy some (House Beautiful always) all are non-searchable or archivable. The big media companies (HB absolutely included) use an online approach/platform which stinks. It’s impossible to navigate and bombards you with ads dominated by P&G (I have no particular beef) and other brands and retailers which overwhelm our advertising “geography” and dominate our retail experience. Exactly why readers, including me seek out content from the likes of Elements of Style. Back in the day, Domino, as a print mag, created exciting editorial of real life brilliantly curated. (Unfortunately, iIt’s current manifestation is a $12 catalogue which I am likely to never buy again and a website I will never buy from. My 24 years old twin girls agree.)
        so why not break free of the big media strictures?
        it is entirely understandable that you are seeking readership/validation there.
        But more likely, the converse is true, if you have a voice, they have have no option but to follow you into the future.

      2. I agree about the magazines, that is far less a concern for me- and an interesting topic for discussion. At this point being published in a magazine is more for personal validation than anything else. However, the book thing IS worth it and is valid. Truly. It paid off for me not only monetarily, but also in making sure my book had tons of never before seen content, which resulted in great reviews and even better sales. Look at the reviews of books by bloggers who just regurgitate blog content and it’s obvious it makes people really mad. I don’t think I’m constricting content, I work really hard to bring fresh content every day and also make sure any book I do is worth the hard earned money people pay for it.

  6. Oh my gosh! Thanks so much for your kind words. We definitely have fun with design, and have been having a blast working with tons of folks around the country and abroad who feel the same way.

  7. Ah! I remember their house from Lonny a while back. I am a sucker for a black house done right and, man, did they ever do that house RIGHT! Thanks for sharing the source. I am currently loving Emily J. McCarthy’s new line of fabrics and this could be a marriage made in heaven!

  8. I’d buy from them in a heartbeat! The furniture is beautiful. These guys have an incredible aesthetic – a little bit urban, a little bit eclectic, with a healthy dose of reverence for period pieces and a whole lotta perfection. Completely chic, livable, whimsical!

  9. I really like this, except for the painted floors. I get that it goes with the modern/eclectic vibe, and maybe they were too far gone to refinish, but I can’t help but think it detracts from the look–too reminiscent of a painted porch floor. Plus, I love the character of older wood floors, dents and all.
    Other than that, it’s a great look. And I’d take any of those sofas, especially the pink one.

  10. I love that house. LOVE. Finally some bold and lots of color…right up my alley and I’d love to move in tomorrow please. Also, great site for sofa’s – wish I’d known about it before I bought mine. I will def bookmark it for next time.

    1. I haven’t seen one in person, which is why I was asking people if they had any experience and as you can see in some comments people are happy!

  11. Their sofas are beautiful, but I would never buy a sofa that my butt hadn’t had a chance to test drive. For me, furniture not only has to look good, but it has to be comfortable.

    1. Great point, Karen. Comfort is actually why we started the company. We were frustrated that sofas could be beautiful or comfortable but only rarely both. We have a Love It guarantee to take back furniture no questions asked should you be dissatisfied with the comfort. The advantage of online furniture is not having 50% of the price of your sofa wasted on paying for showrooms; we’d rather put that money into superior construction quality and materials.

  12. Never heard of them!? But they have a lot of styles to choose from. The aqua tufted one is an EXACT copy(?) of my Wesley Hall sofa. You cannot beat Wesley Hall for quality, style and fabrics. Unfortunately, it is probably out of the price range of many people. When I had my business and bricks and mortar store, we carried several brands of upholstery, but WH was by far the best.

  13. That blue button back. Swoon! Then I saw the sectional Chesterfield. No room, not my lifestyle but oh goodness, how gorgeous
