Now, I’ll be honest. The thought of buying furniture online, especially a sofa, was nerve-wracking. Because if you’re anything like me, you’re keen to sit, plop, lean back and rub your hands across the cushions before you ever buy a sofa. But I chatted with Sierra in customer service who answered my barrage of questions, reassured me (the 365-day return policy helped with that) and sent me several fabric swatches so that I could be certain in my choice.

Buying Furniture Online – The Interior Define Ordering Process

Update: my living room tour is finished and live on my website and my YouTube channel! And don’t forget that you can always watch behind-the-scenes on Instagram stories.

Disclaimer: After choosing my Sloan sectional I reached out to Interior Define and partnered with them. Special thanks to Interior Define for sponsoring this post. 

But here’s where it gets even better. Because all of Interior Define’s sofas are custom and made to order, I could opt for more goose-down filling in my cushions and add 16″ to the length of the sectional. The standard Sloan sectional is 96″, but I was hoping for something bigger as I’ve got the space in my living room. The Sloan sectional at 112″ would fit perfectly.

Interior Define is the best online furniture store (in my opinion) with modern, minimalist sofas and sectionals that match my design aesthetic. Even better, they’re customizable, so you can create the exact sofa or sectional that you need.

As luck would have it, my interior designer picked out the exact same sofa I chose for myself (no joke) – Interior Define’s Sloan sectional in ivory heavy cloth fabric with chrome legs. Clearly, that sofa was meant to be.

Rob Royer believes there is a yawning abyss in the furniture market between the inexpensive cookie-cutter couch and the luxury lounge. So last year he founded Interior Define to bridge the divide. The company works with factories to manufacture its own sofas, each made to order. Customers are pampered with a degree of customization (sizes, fabrics and a few other features can be selected), but the prices reflect the savings the company makes by dispensing with warehouses and middlemen. Mr. Royer estimated that his sofas cost 30 to 40 percent less than comparable ones sold by conventional retailers. (The Sloan sofa, shown here, starts at $900.) Customers can see the collections in a Chicago showroom, where Interior Define thriftily has its offices, or peruse them online. Not all of the customization options are posted on the website, he said, so be sure to ask. Information: 872-802-4119 or interiordefine.com.

I visited all the furniture stores in-person, but it was like The Three Little Piggy’s where one was too cream, one was too frumpy and one was too stark. I did like the look of Restoration Hardware’s modern line of sofas, but I definitely didn’t love the price. There was just no way I could bring myself to pay $8,000 – $10,000 for a sectional.

So I found myself doing something I’ve never done with a sofa purchase before – I started searching online. And after perusing (for days and days) all the online furniture stores, one company stood out from the others which matched my exact aesthetic – Interior Define.

So a couple of months ago I reached out to Havenly, an online e-design firm and said help! I’d like to think I have pretty good design sense in my mish-mash style of cozy minimalist, warm modern and Scandinavian influenced-design (you can check for yourself on my Pinterest Board). But I’ve learned there’s nothing quite like having an expert design opinion to help you tie everything together.

My only concern in this whole process was the length of time to receive the sofa, which is 8-10 weeks. After making the decision to purchase the sofa, I was like a kid in a candy store and I wanted it asap. But here’s the truth – those eight weeks (or in my case, 7 weeks until delivery) flew by. And later this week my gorgeous, custom sectional will be delivered with their white glove service. I’m giddy.

I’ll have more on my experience with Havenly in a future post/video (it’s here: my modern and minimalist living room with Havenly), but today I want to zero in on my living room and specifically the biggest furniture piece you typically design everything else around – the sofa.

For once I knew exactly what I wanted – a white linen, modern-looking sofa. The sofa of Pinterest dreams. And I figured that since I don’t have kids or pets, I could get away with it. Seize the moment, right? Well, I tried seizing, but who knew a simple white sofa would be so difficult to find?

Most of you know that I moved back to Orange County and into a new apartment earlier this year. Well, since then I’ve been so focused on generating content for this website and my YouTube channel that somehow 6 months flew by and my apartment lay bare.

I kept Interior Define in the back of my head but not wanting to influence my Havenly designer, I never mentioned the sofa I was coveting. I was interested to see if she could find something I was unable to find.

Sure, my kitchen was decorated (food blogger priorities), but the rest of the apartment was looking quite sad. It was a big, empty box. And definitely not the comfy, homey vibes I was hoping for.
