Doug, are you sure they are carpet beetles? Normally carpet beetles or what are commonly known as Dermistid Beetles only infest natural animal fibers such as rugs, clothes, etc made of wool, etc. They also live on plants outdoors. Lets be for sure that we are talking about Carpet Beetles. Can you send a picture of one?

If its only an apartment, then I would recommend to use Zenprox Aerosol. Spray the sofa, turn it upside down, remove the cushions and spray everything. In some cases, you may need to remove the felt lining on the bottom if there is one, then spray up inside the sofa. Zenprox can be sprayed on almost anything.
You can also spray the baseboards, floors, etc. We have other products, but for an apartment, you don't need a lot of chemical. I think a couple of cans would probably be very effective. Treat initially, and then in about 3 weeks and see what happens. Might just save the sofa.
It's also safe for the cat.
