The Reston Look-Alike Couch Bob Simon Would Be Proud Of

Crate and Barrel released a new sofa line that looks like it was designed by Robert Simon himself.

The “Reston Queen Trundle Sleeper Sofa” model sells for about $2,500 and was called out by the Restonian — a local blog — for having oddly similar features to that of the community.

Its blocky design fits buildings found around Reston and its price tag might remind homeowners of the high cost of living in the area — at least compared to the national average.

One commenter on Crate and Barrel’s Facebook page said that the design is a “ChaCh$ing – couch” while another said it was simply overpriced and they found better deals elsewhere.

The sofa sleeper comes in almost 10 colors, each of which are monotone shades of greys, browns and tans. When Reston residents take a walk around town, they’re likely to notice a similar color-scheme within their own community.

Though it appears that Crate and Barrel have removed some of the items from its website, The Restonian did a side-by-side comparison to other sectionals within the Reston Sofa family to that of buildings around town.

It is unclear if the sofa was actually modeled after the Reston community, but people are free to make up their own conspiracies about the design.
