We have been designing in Bergen County, NJ for over 18 years. We worked at Living Rooms Plus for nine years before it was sold, and for the last nine as owners of "The Contemporary Couch."

We welcome old friends and new ones to our new spectacular contemporary furniture showroom on Route 4 in Paramus. We thank all of you for appreciating the creativity of our designs, the professionalism of our company, and for our commitment to the community.

Client's Own Words

Please click here for Client Home #156, Hewlett, Long Island

"My husband found 'The Contemporary Couch' by searching on line and we took a trip out to New Jersey on a whim (we live on Long Island). One of the best decisions we ever made!

We were hit very hard by hurricane sandy. Our family room on the ground floor was completely destroyed. Rebuilding was a nightmare as well as we were constantly misled and disappointed by contractors and repairman. When the construction in the room was finished and it was time to furnish it we were daunted by the task. But along came Pia and Larry from Contemporary Couch and we were put completely at ease. Pia has magnificent taste and incredible talent. She was able to catch on quickly to our tastes and personalities and took the time to make sure we were on exactly the same page. She was straight up with us from the beginning both in terms of cost and completion dates. There were no "hidden fees," no "unexpected delays" and no "unforeseen circumstances" as we had experienced regularly with other sales people.

Pia and Larry were present when the furniture was delivered and ran the show. I was blown away by the finished product as it was even more beautiful than I expected (and my expectations were high!). The quality and comfort of the couches, the beauty of the rug and mirror and the functionality of every piece (the tables, vases, etc.) was beyond impressive. I find myself walking into the room regularly just to smile and look forward to many years of family enjoyment and friend entertaining.

I must say that I have never dealt with such straight-up people. When they shook my hand on day one I had a good feeling. Our last meeting ended with hugs. I will use these people again and again and I recommend them whole heartedly. I could not be more pleased."

"Pia, Everything looks great! Thank you."

A. T. Upper Saddle River, NJ

Most likely it's Pia, not Larry that keeps this client coming back to us. Now designing their third home with us, in beautiful Sarasota, Florida, this dynamic couple appreciate the artistry, understand the complexity of design, and are just really great people...and friends. Mary and Matt...thank you so much!

Hi Pia,

Good Morning. Hope all is well. Sorry, I did not get to see you yesterday. But saw the furniture last night when I came home." Woooooo.......w". That was the first thing I said when I saw it. Truly that was a marvelous job done. Both me and my wife could not believe how nice the things came out. We just could not believe that we own such nice pieces of bedroom furniture. We have been to so many furniture stores but never felt so happy and satisfied with our purchase as we did yesterday. Both you and Larry did a terrific job right from the measurements to design to color selection and finally to install. We just don't have any words to explain our feelings. Boys will be coming home next weekend and we are sure that they are going to love it too. We want to THANK YOU for putting life in our bedrooms.

Thanks,
D and G J. Somerset, NJ October 2014

Unique Leather Furniture

Leather furniture continues to be the most popular category in home furnishings. Nowhere in the country will you see such a unique collection of fine leather furniture, surrounded by our stylish custom rugs and accessories.

  • Our leather furniture is upholstered with the finest Italian leathers everywhere on the piece. No bonded leather is used, no leather-mate. Our fine manufacturers would never use such inferior products. It is a sure sign of poor quality furniture.

  • Our leather furniture is built to last. High density foam, hardwood frames, stainless steel accents, heavy duty spring construction, full grain leathers.

  • Our leather furniture is stylish. Of course you could buy square boxes in other stores. We have gentle curves, stainless steel legs, shapely chaises and scoop backs. If you appreciate interesting design, you will love our furniture.

  • Our leather furniture is custom made just for you. Multiple seating arrangements, infinite leather and Ultrasuede colors and combinations.

  • Our leathers are available for multiple uses. From durability to luxury, let us help you make the right selections.

  • Our leather furniture is full size. Many stores are showing skimpy, scaled down designs to save on materials. It's furniture made for standing, not sitting.

Of course, Pia will design your room. Space-planning, design choices, leather selections. There is never a fee for our design services, but we will save you thousands in mistakes by designing your room properly.

Stop in today and see the most unique contemporary leather collection and accessories in Paramus...in the country.

Designed by some of the top contemporary furniture designers in history, we offer shapely designs, unique fabric applications and of course...leather. Built by hand by true American artisans, every piece is manufactured with lifetime warranties and timeless design.

A note from Pia and Larry:

So many nice furniture stores in Paramus. Each with their own story, each claiming to be unique. Some are a day old and some longer. Some are chain stores owned by large corporations and some family owned. How do you choose?

The Contemporary Couch Design Studio was created over nine years ago to bring to consumers the ultimate in custom contemporary furniture. Formerly designers at Living Rooms Plus furniture, Pia and Larry have now been designing for the tri-state area for 18 years.

We feature only the finest in leather and upholstered seating, custom area rugs and window cornices, and custom bedroom, dining and entertainment centers. All designs are hand drawn and created just for you. Our brand new Paramus showroom is architecturally beautiful and our furniture is uniquely creative.

It's not just the furniture we sell. It's the way we treat you and your most important investment....your home. Let Pia handle the coordination of shapes, colors, and sizes and create  one of a kind designs that truly expresses your individual tastes. No one will ever walk into your home, and exclaim, "Oh, I have the same one."

So take your time and shop around to all the stores in Paramus. Also visit their impersonal websites as compared to our website featuring over 1000 photos of actual client homes and quotes.

Then,when you're tired of seeing all the same furniture, disappointed with the quality and design, and frustrated by their impersonal touch...visit The Contemporary Couch' showroom, say hello to Larry and Pia, and let us show you the 'old school' neighborhood nature of what the furniture business used to be coupled with the most creative collection of  contemporary furniture and design in the United States today.

No one can match our 55 years of combined experience, and no one can match our trend setting designs. nine straight years...highest ratings of the Better Business Bureau and Dun and Bradstreet.

We are so thrilled with our beautiful purchases!! Every piece of furniture, window treatments, rug designs along with your color suggestions is amazing and I am so happy I listened to you!

We just had our Holiday party and everyone asked "where do you shop?" People can't believe that you came out from NJ to see and design and then came back for delivery! The experience of working with you and Larry is the most professional, friendly and painless customer service and support I have ever experienced!

This wasn't the first time we have worked together but you continue to amaze me with your talent. This house is so different from our other home and you always put it all together and make it our home!

Thank you for your all you do and especially for the wonderful friendship we have developed!

"Dear Pia and Larry,

We first approached you when we were trying to figure out how to furnish our home. We were flummoxed. You came to our home, looked at the spaces and colors, and created designs for us to view. We were very pleased with what you presented, as the geometry and colors of our house were not easily amenable to proper furnishing.

We are very impressed and glad with the results and excited with future projects. We thank you for all the time and effort you have put forth. We have replaced most of our ikea furniture with your beautiful designs, and we highly recommend your work to anyone looking for elegant, artistic and contemporary furniture."

Window Sculptures
Hand made; custom made; proudly made;
by
New Jersey craftsmen.

We specialize in custom made furniture and accessories created specifically for you and your home. We love that no nosy neighbor could ever walk into your home and exclaim..."I have the same one".  Our designs are for you and how you've always dreamed your home could look.

One of our products that represents these thoughts are our window sculptures. Pia designs each one to fit any size and shape window. After selecting the design together, Pia will select the exact thread colors to be used. They will coordinate perfectly with the colors in your room. If you are just finishing off your room, or buying everything from us, the color gradation is the true artistry.

      Elegant threads are wrapped around thick cores and gradated. Starting at the top they will represent one solid color, and then other colors are gradually added and blended. The result is a hand made product like no other. The design and the colors used are yours, never to be repeated.

     We own the patents on these designs, and anything new created by Pia is yours alone. They are hand made by New Jersey craftsmen to give you a product so unique, and so beautiful, they will bring a satisfying conclusion to your room design.

Nothing says romance like a purple metallic bed. Of course you could buy one of those boring wood sets imported from China that all the chain stores are carrying...that make you feel soooooo old. Or you can ask Pia to design something stimulating and exciting. Let us put life into your bedroom. In fact, in every room, with color, shape and design!!!

For those of you who remember the hedonistic days of Studio 54, and the unique times and personalities of that era, here is a quote from the man Time magazine calls.......

"The godfather of the U.S. paparazzi culture" and his equally famous wife

"Walking into Pia's amazing showroom, I was overwhelmed and felt that Ron and I would never come to terms over which direction to take (I'm traditional, he's contemporary). All I really knew was that I wanted high impact and drama to best showcase Ron's photography. The result has been absolutely magical. As in "pop", the colors are vibrant, and the furnishings are amazing.
In our opinion, the most beautiful form in nature is the sphere, and Pia gave us exactly what we were looking for--curves in our sofa and rug designs. Her designs are amazing works of art. Pia rocks! She's half marriage counselor, but 100% Plus great designer!!!!!"
