Sofa Modelling

Its takes a lot of time trying to source sofas that match specific
styles and wondered if anyone can point me in the direction of how
to produce our own relatively quickly.

Its also difficult to get sofa manufacturers to release 3D drawings of their products

Alternatively if anyone can recommend a source for a good selection of ideally free sofas.

I have come across the 3d Archive which has .3ds file options.

Besides the 3D warehouse, were you could filter the search on manufacturer as well:

Here is another source:
