German term or phrase:tiefergelegte kartoffelkisten
description of a style of furniture - die sofas erinnerten eher an tiefergelegte kartoffelkisten
Explanation: The sofas were more reminiscent of potato crates. Tiefergelegt suggests that potato crates used to be placed on an elevated level. I don't think this would mean much to an English-speaking audience. So I would leave that part out.
