Nixon Sofa

$1,899.00 $2,159.00 American Made

All of our sofas are custom made to your specification from over 1,125 possible combinations. You will be guaranteed to have the most unique, one of a kind, sofa on the block. We use only the best quality hardwoods for our frames, thus we offer a lifetime warranty on the sofa frame.


Every sofa is assembled by hand by a frame maker and after inspection it is passed on to the foam fitting and upholstery craftsman. We use only virgin, non-compressed foams that are certified, safe and contain no chemicals or additives that may harm you or your family.


Custom made for you, once you have placed your order, we will begin cutting the fabric that you have selected. Your fabric will then go to the sewing department and then to one of our seasoned, professional upholsterers who on average have 12-15 years of experience.


We will then marry all of your materials into a masterpiece that will not only look amazing but you'll feel the form, function and comfort of the best quality Mid-Century Modern furniture available.


Please be aware that the cushions may feel a bit firm when you receive your new furniture. This is normal and they should soften up approximately 15% over the first 90 days of use. Tufted products are normally a bit firmer because of the compression created while tufting the buttons.


Firmer cushions equals better quality. It will take a little longer to break into but they will adjust to the contour of your body providing a heightened level of comfort.

Please finish customizing order above.

Simple Charm

Dual bottom cushions and a tufted back reflect the simplistic beauty of this mid-century classic.

Elite but Affordable

Choose wisely and you'll be sitting on a sofa that makes other sofas look, well, inferior.

Handcrafted Workmanship

Like it was done in the 1950s, we hand-tool the base so you end up with the highest quality sofa.

Received my Nixon sofa in Klein citrus a few days ago. It is beautiful. Just love it. It is a show piece. It really brightens up the room and has a touch of elegance. Comfortable too. I just love it. It arrived in abut 3 weeks. More than I could have hoped for.

Love my Nixon sofa

April 15, 2013 - Written by

When I found Thrive Furnishings online, I was thrilled that they produced midcentury modern style furniture locally. After admiring the Nixon sofa online for a couple months and discovering that Thrive has been around for over ten years, I decided that it was the right sofa for our living room space, and that they were the right company to buy from. After trying out the sofa in the factory warehouse by appointment, we purchased the sofa online in Klein Azure a week later during the Presidents Day sale. We were very excited to purchase our first new piece of furniture for our new house, proud to purchase American-made right here in southern California, and from a good company to boot. When the sofa arrived, the delivery guys were very cheerful and professional. They removed it from the box in the truck, then brought it straight into our living room and proceeded to remove it from the giant plastic bag. As the sofa was laid momentarily on its back, we all noticed a large nick missing from the wooden base of the piece. It looked as if a wooden knot had fallen out but the hollowed-out part had still been stained. I asked what it was, and the guys admitted it didn't look very good to them. I was relieved that they were so honest and didn't try to cover it up or brush it under the rug. After a little discussion with the company, the guys returned one week later with a new base that was perfectly constructed. They took out the old one and screwed in the new one. Meanwhile, back at the company office, they were busily discussing how such an indiscretion could have occurred during production and ways they could avoid the same problem in the future. They convinced me that it's not a common occurrence. I still can't believe it happened, as it was such an obviously bad piece of wood that the workers should not have used, but I felt confident once the company took positive steps to ameliorate the situation. They even honored the seven days free return from the date the new base was delivered and installed, but I didn't need it after all. We sit on the sofa when we're not wearing grubby clothing so it stays nice and clean. I had tried pouring water on the swatch they had given me when I visited the factory showroom; the water rolled off just as it did in the video, but when left to sit a while or if pressed into the fabric, the water does go through. It is, after all, made of cotton, and I've also accepted that it will fade over time. Thrive has ensured me that they can reupholster the piece in the future. Meanwhile, we'll just take care of it as a formal piece of furniture. As for the feel of the sofa, it's very firm and stiff, which is why I selected it for our living room. I don't fancy the idea of a sofa in my formal room that sags or needs to be frequently fluffed up. I plan to buy a big, ugly, comfy couch for the family room next. That's the one everyone can jump on and if it gets misshapen, I won't really care. I feel good about supporting their business, I enjoy the look and feel of our sofa, and I would definitely buy from them again.

Super Terrific Couch

December 15, 2012 - Written by

Just received our Nixon sofa in Key Largo Aubergine, and it's FANTASTIC - the color is beautiful. I love its firmness - I can tell it won't turn into a slumpy mess in a few years. Delivery was also super fast. I ordered the couch on Black Friday & it was delivered on 12/14. A+!

Excellent design and construction

November 09, 2012 - Written by

This sofa is beautiful and very well made. The photos on the website are very accurate because there were no surprises when the sofa got delivered. Another reviewer commented that the sofa back is stiff. It is! I had been looking at vintage sofas and this design is VERY accurate for mid century modern design. They told me to expect a 4 week delivery time, but it came much sooner. I would definitely buy furniture from Thrive again. American made, excellent value, terrific construction, great customer service, and BEAUTIFUL designs.

Great quality!

June 13, 2012 - Written by

I ordered the Nixon sofa in "Cannes Dark Grey" (velvet) on the advice that velvet was relatively cat proof (which so far seems to be accurate). The sofa arrived about four weeks later and looked fantastic, but unfortunately was damaged in shipping. Fortunately Thrive was great about sending a replacement, which also arrived in about four weeks. The quality is excellent, far superior to Room and Board (I like some of their designs but was disappointed to see in the showroom that the upholstery looks cheap and the stitching is uneven). The design is also extremely comfortable , which I wondered about based on the pictures. The cushions are supportive without being squishy (hate that), and the depth works well both for me and my husband. FYI, the dimensions given on the website are incorrect: the sofa stands 32" high and is 34" deep.

Very chic!

We love that 1950s look and decided to buy this for our living room with a couple of chairs, and we think it looks terrific. Very comfortable too! My dog insists on getting up on it even though he's not allowed on furniture!

Description: We love it! It's the best couch we've ever owned. We are both short, so often couches leave us with our legs partially dangling over the edge without touching the ground. This couch is made with the right proportions!
