Looking for sofa where top of seat cushions are high

shelendeJuly 2, 2010

I am interested in the Lane Emerson fabric sofa, partly because the height from floor to seat cushion top is 23 inches. I have not found other sofa's to be as high up off the floor. Can anyone recommend any other fabric sofa's without a skirt that are high up and also have a little pizzaz, for a den?

I dont think your will find many sofas with that seat height (23") unless you have one custom built. And I even question that dimension, unless you have actually gone into the store and accurately took that measurement.

Rmanbike, you are correct, I later found out that the correct seat height for the Emerson is 20 inches. The only sofa's I could find that are as high as 21 are King Hickory. The Zoe model is what I am trying to locate so I can see if it is comfortable but none of the retailers that King Hickory lists have that sofa in their stores. I find the Emerson (called Athena in JCPenny) to be comfortable but I am not ready to give up.

Also consider how much you'll sink into the seating, if you're after seat height when sitting on/in it. So, the support of the cushion and the cushion materials may come into play to maintain the height wanted.
