Best Sofas and Couches for Your Apartment

Dec 21st, 2017

No living room feels complete without a comfortable, design-appropriate couch or sofa. The right couch varies from apartment to apartment. Factors to consider when selecting a couch include budget and space limitations, the presence of pets or small children, current design scheme, and style preferences. Depending on your budget and degree of comfort with previously-owned furniture, you may benefit from browsing lightly-used couches. If you’d prefer a brand new seating arrangement, here are nine stylish options to consider.

Latitude Run produces several mid-century modern love seats. This model, currently available for less than 00, offers an affordable and stylish alternative to authentic Danish design.

Modway Remark Right Arm Loveseat

Another mid-century modern inspired sofa, the Modway Engage is a suitable option for spacious apartment living rooms. 13 color options make this 7’6″-long seating option highly customizable. Even though this Modway furnishing is new, it looks straight out of a 1960s living room.

Urban Outfitters Anywhere Sofa

For its price, this contemporary sofa-bed delivers on the utility front. The Anywhere is compact for a sofa that comfortably seats three, and it converts into an equally comfortable two-sleeper floor bed.

Istikbal Kubo

If you’re tight on storage space, consider the Istikbal Kubo. This multi-functional model from Turkish furniture manufacturer Istikbal delivers the practicality of an IKEA piece, but has an air of Ottoman regalia to it. Beneath the cushions is a trove of storage space, divided into four sections.
