My wife and I are renovating our living room. She wants to throw out our old couch and buy a new one with a more modern design. We've looked at some in-store places, but their prices are a little too high for our budget. We've also checked out a few Australian-owned online places like Desired Living and so on, but we still wanted to look around. Does anyone have any recommendations for low-budget friendly places?

How is your lounge hunting going?
What price range and size are you hoping for?
You really have 2 options; 1. Low-end pricing from furniture stores (that import furniture, freedom, west elm/ pottery barn) -see some options below.
or 2, Australian /designed and made, usually at a higher price point. but they are made very well, hardwood frames with deep seating feather fill and usually a choice in timber stain colours for legs ect. To find low-budget Australian made furniture can be tricky, try harpers projects or icon by design (if you're after a mid-century 60s style). I usually get my sofa's custom made and select a more affordable fabric (commercial duty fabric) looking at $2,500-$3,500 for custom made.
Here's some images that might help!
I'm not sure how Freedom can make a $350 sofa?! but these ones on sale, I'm sure it will probably feel like sitting on concrete
West Elm; lovely blue velvet modern yet classic look $1500 +del

Pottery Barn for a more straight edge and vintage feel $1600+ del
