Condo and apartment dwellers know the Goldi-locks Effect: The sofa that looked “just right” in
the showroom goes positively gargantuan once it
gets home. The good folks at Rowe Furniture — founded in 1946 by an efficiency expert, no less — understand this. Behold their new Mini Mod line, a collection of big-idea sofas that are scaled to fit shrinking spaces. From the bold, armless Broadway to the sectional Sullivan, Rowe’s Mini Mods even sport upholstery whose stripes and geometric prints have been proportioned to fit right, too — the better to seat you with, as the Big Bad Wolf might say. From $650. (800) 334-7693, www.rowefurniture.com
