About Curious Sofa
Curious Sofa.com is an online boutique selling vintage and antique items, home decor, offbeat objects, creative goods, and jewelry- all with a 'less than serious' style. Over 50% of all items for sale on the website are one-of-a-kind and carefully hand picked from sources and antique dealers across the U.S. All other merchandise you may see is chosen for their vintage redesign, specific style or to be especially useful.
Kansas City native Debbie Dusenberry opened Curious Sofa as a brick & mortar store on September 16, 2000 specializing in slip covered sofas, home decor and antiques. With an eye for buying and an unorthodox way of display, Debbie led Curious Sofa to be one of the nations top small retailers and a destination shop for customers from across the country.
For ten successful years Curious Sofa and Dusenberry's home were featured by many national, trade and local publications (Country Living, Romantic Homes, Where Women Create, Romantic Country, Better Homes & Gardens, Travel & Leisure) which led to a strong following on the shop's website and blog.
In January of 2011, Dusenberry closed her brick and mortar store to focus on internet sales only. Today her time is spent working her online business, styling magazine editorials, retail consulting and marketing, graphic design and hunting for original goods at various antique shows across the country.
(The name Curious Sofa was borrowed from the 1961 book by Edward Gorey).
