Simplicity Sofas fills a significant void in the furniture market place. Many older homes and apartments have narrow doors or stairways that are too small to permit normal size furniture to enter. Previously these consumers were forced to turn to low cost solutions such as futons or IKEA-type knock-down sofas. Quality was poor and assembly was typically a 2 hr ordeal. Simplicity Sofas introduced new options into the marketplace for consumers who want better quality goods and a broad selection of fabrics, styles and options.
In addition, because Simplicity Sofas sells direct to consumers, and does not have a retail markup, its prices are only slightly more expensive than its low quality competition.
Another void in the furniture market place addressed by Simplicity Sofas is smaller sofa sizes. Large manufacturers have been very slow to address this need. Some high end companies have introduced smaller styles, but high volume mid-priced firms have been unable to adjust. Simplicity Sofas offers 3 different sofa sizes in each of its collections, including hard-to-find small sizes. It is able to offer custom built small-size sofas at prices well below most of its competition.
