I actually purchased PB's Tanner because it was the skinniest one I could find and just the right height to go behind my sofa. But then I randomly found a mid century bookcase with sliding glass doors that was even slimmer and more perfect size wise! I'd say hunt for some mid century pieces- they have clean lines and are almost always built to be skinny, which make them the perfect jumping off point for apartment furniture!

I had the same size limitations last year when I was furnishing the great room addition onto my existing kitchen. I nearly went with either a Rowe or Younger (the latter has some great mid century styles) but I ultimately went with Restoration Hardware's 6' Belgian track arm sofa in leather. It's 36-37" deep, and I was hoping for a max 34" deep, but they didn't sit as comfy as this. I love that it only has one seat cushion and it doesn't have any sagging issues! I needed leather because I have four pets who love to snuggle and shed all over my furniture, and leather just solves that issue entirely and only gets better with age. But RH also has beautiful linen and army duck options in all sorts of colors. I also just picked up an amazing vintage sofa 68"x32" deep and I'm in love! It's going to end up in my future studio, but searching for a good deal on vintage and reupholstering can definitely be worth the hunt. My little sofa was $75 at a thrift store and it doesn't even need upholstery. Good luck with your search!
