Samples are in and the TrueModern office is excited to see the new Edgar Blazona sofa line in real, physical form. Now they need a name – and that’s where you come in. We know you know your stuff, so TrueModern wants your input and suggestions on what to name these first two sofas. Get creative, get witty, get thinking. Take advantage of the opportunity! Post a name for each sofa in the comments section below.

About Ali:
I enjoy wood paneled station wagons, German food and senior citizens (I am 80 years old at heart). Nearly every weekend I am taking photos at other people's weddings and I have a blog of my own (but I don't update it often enough). I love to paint, sew and knit. Check out my DP Staff profile on Hatch.

    2 Sofa’s……… 2 Names:

    White sofa should be named “Sprawl” obviously due to the leg position

    Grey sofa should be named “Maxwell” (remember the Maxwell audio tapes advertisement with the guy sitting in a lounge chair all laid back? This reminds me of that ad.
