If you live in a major city like we do, then you’re probably no stranger to the infamous curb couch. These used, abused and abandoned couches litter the neighborhood streets like crumpled paper cups after the LA marathon. It’s sad to imagine the life that each of these sofas once lived — the movie nights, the naps, the pillow fights. Now the curb couch sits alone, defunct and derelict, counting the days until it’s hauled away to that great family room in the sky.

The Curb Couch Life Cycle

To be fair, there’s a reason why a sofa becomes a curb couch. Curb couches typically aren’t paragons of quality and craftsmanship. You know the type of couch we’re talking about; it’s made out of packed sawdust, cobbled together with shoddy hardware, and angrily assembled by someone who can’t (or doesn’t care to) decipher the Swedish instruction manual. With shoddy quality like this, no one will blame you when you kick your couch to the curb. It’s simply the inevitable and final step in the bittersweet life cycle of the curb couch.

The Apt2B Difference

At Apt2B, our sofas have a slightly different life cycle — one of abundance, love, joy and… yeah, comfort. That’s because we make and manufacture most of our Apt2B sofas, sleeper sofas and sectionals right here in Downtown LA, using high-quality materials and emphasizing craftsmanship. In other words, our furniture is the exact opposite of a curb couch. For instance, we make our sofa frames from solid, kiln-dried alder wood, and our sinuous spring system uses eight-gauge steel that holds up to flopping down for a binge-watching marathon. Our cushions are a satisfyingly-comfortable and long-lasting high-density foam, so go ahead and take that nap without worrying about waking up stiff or sore.

We also put our money where our mouth is — our Made in the USA Sofas have a limited lifetime warranty on the hardwood frame, the spring system and our factory workmanship.

Even the best can see improvements with innovative materials and methods. That’s why we’re excited to announce the next generation of Apt2B sofas: new designs and new fabrics but made with the same outstanding quality. Our new Huxley and Quinn Collections, for instance, are on the cutting edge of style with their modern profiles. They look incredible in any of our durable, pet-friendly fabric options but are absolutely killer in our plush velvet fabrics. Trust us, these are going to be the style.
