February 24, 2015Mike and Sara Rehab a 60s Retro Ranch : Searching For A New (Vintage Looking) Family Room Sofa
By Sara In AZ
Mike and I have been on the hunt for a new vintage look sofa/loveseat for a few months now. We’ve had our current sofa and loveseat for eons and honestly the scale of it is just WAY to big for our family room…..plus we’d like something a bit more ‘retro’ to fit the ranch.
We are looking more towards loveseats than actual sofas as the width needs to be smaller than the typical sofa size. We are trying to find something right around 70”. We are thinking that a loveseat and matching chair combination would work out nicely in the family room, we definitely don’t want to overcrowd the space.
All of the loveseats shown below can be customized in size – a big plus for us since we are looking for a more specific size….though most of the loveseats here could probably fit our family room as-is.
I will start off with my very favorite loveseat – the Eastwood from Joybird! There is just something about the design that I really, really love….and the way those legs are on the bottom – well, this loveseat would fit in with our Heywood Wakefield furniture just beautifully!

We also thought the Mitchell loveseat was super cool and would also fit in nicely with H-W too, but we are questioning the long-term comfort of having a loveseat with wooden arms.

We liked the Anson sofa from Room and Board too.

We were also thinking of a Heywood Wakefield sofa as a possibility for the family room, which can be customized in size as well.

I’d love to know if anyone out there has had any experience with any of these particular sofas/loveseats……or the companies in general. Does anyone have any recommendations? Is there a loveseat/sofa that missed my list that you think might be perfect for my family room here at the ranch? Please do let me know your thoughts and opinions, I’d love to hear what you all have to say!
