The Petrie Sofa, Eight Ways

The Petrie Sofa, Eight Ways - Living Room


Okay, before we begin this post, we have to admit that we're (way too often) suckers for marketing and that Crate & Barrel's Petrie Sofa had a hold on us initially just because of the name. As fans of the Dick Van Dyke show, anything named after Rob and Laura Petrie was bound to grab our attention.

Add to that a kiln-dried hardwood frame, the mid-century influences that we're so fond of, and the made-in-the-USA quality that we associate with Crate & Barrel, and we figured that the Petrie sofa would be a safe bet. It's shown up in a number of Apartment Therapy house tours, and it's versatile enough to fit in with modern or traditional decor.

After reading some reviews of the sofa on Crate & Barrel's site and scanning the Apartment Therapy classifieds (where second-hand versions of the sofa show up a lot) we came to the conclusion that the major complaint most people have has to do with the tufted buttons. They seem to pop off or unwravel under heavy-duty use (dogs, kids, etc) so this may be an issue to consider if you're extra-hard on your sofa. Apart from those complaints, we've heard that it's a great looking, reasonably priced piece that holds up to medium wear just fine.

We went looking for some examples of real homes that include the Petrie, and we found quite a few. For details and more information on each home, click through the links below.
