very traditional, older house and want to incorporate modern pieces to get an eclectic, tasetful look & maintain overall balance. Budget is my issue, so any great sofa/ seating ideas that would promote a more modern look w/out breaking my bank would be so appreciated!

Hi H, oh what fun! Love mixing modern and traditional...but then you knew that. Any interior designer who will work hourly as your shopper could help you decide which quality/price balance is the best value then place the order from the best vendor and have the item(s) shipped to you. Respect your gumption, D

Take a look at West Elm for moderately priced furnishings and accessories with a modern edge. Here is the sleek Dunham sofa.

A surprise to many is that Interior Designers typically save a client more money than their fee. We can get discounts just about everywhere. Plus the economic benefit to more people getting smaller amounts of a sale vs. a store getting the whole amount can be very attractive. If you do shop on your own, become educated on construction differences so you can choose disposable, 10 year, 20 year or heirloom quality (my terms). : ) I'll slow down on the coffee now...D
