One of the biggest commitments you can make is buying a sofa. Sofas are not cheap, and they're essentially the centerpiece of the living room. These days, you no longer need to go to a crowded showroom, stalked by an overeager sales associate to get the perfect couch for you. Instead, you can buy a sofa online without ever leaving your existing sofa. We narrowed down the seemingly endless places to buy a sofa to find the 15 best sofa brands for you. So whether you're on a tight budget or you're looking to splurge on a new couch, here are the best sofa brands to shop right now.
Allform's modular sofas have become a hit because of their high-quality build and they're easy to put together. Sofas are made to order in the US, and because you won't see the sofa in person before you buy, you can get a free swatch kit to help you pick your ideal sofa.
With Allform, you get seven fabric options, two leather options, a 100-day free trial, and free delivery. The sofa itself is great, too.
AllModern, a sister brand of Wayfair, focuses more on the modern side of things (hence its name). Its picks are slightly less budget friendly than its parent company, but its styles are way more fun.
With its seemingly levitating seat, the Kearney sofa draws on mid-century modern design cues at an approachable price point.
For practically any and every style of sofa, Apt2B has it. The bonus is, whether you want a futon or a made-in-USA sofa, everything ships for free — as if a great selection wasn't enough to lure you in.
This curvy sofa might not be for everyone, but there's no denying Sloane's appeal. Its minimalist construction (it sits on invisible legs) makes for a standout piece, and with over 80 color options, you're bound to find something you like.
Custom-made furniture should not be this reasonably priced. Yet somehow BenchMade Modern manages to sell high-quality sofas with unbelievable customization at prices that won't totally break the bank. Even better, you get your sofas in less time than you'd think, with custom pieces going out between six to seven weeks, or just a couple of days if you opt for a ready-to-ship model.
The Catwalk features some generously sized cushions that sit atop slim legs, which actually make vacuuming underneath super easy. Part of the fun of ordering from BenchMade Modern is scrolling through the seemingly endless selection of options from different fabrics to the style of legs. The brand offers a 100-day return window, and the Catwalk's frame is even backed by a lifetime warranty.
Blu Dot is a Minneapolis-based furniture brand focused on modern designs, well-crafted furniture and functional home decor. Oh, and it also specializes in amazing sofas.
Despite its slim frame, the Diplomat is actually a sleeper sofa. Thanks to its ingenious design, the sofa folds out to reveal a queen-sized sleeping space, perfect for small homes or those who expect constant drop-ins.
When Burrow first started, it had just one style of sofa: the Nomad. It has since released a whole mess of sofa styles, as well as other furniture pieces such as beds, shelves and dressers. But we always come back to the sofa. We'd go so far as to say that Burrow helped to jumpstart the whole sofa-in-a-box trend that has made it easier than ever to deck out your living room situation.
The sofa that started it all for Burrow: the Nomad. Its timeless mid-century modern design will fit in wherever you put it, and the whole thing is such a breeze to put together. Add in the built-in USB charger, optional sleep kit for unexpected guests and a modular design that grows (or shrinks) with you, and you have yourself a wonderful sofa.
Coddle is another one of those direct-to-consumer furniture brands that makes it super easy to furnish your home without ever leaving your home. Although it started with the Toggle line — which includes a couch, chair and ottoman — Coddle has since stocked its inventory with a wide variety of styles.
The Node is a cozy-looking sofa that feels as good to sit on you'd expect from the way it looks. Its modular design means you can add or remove seats, and it even has USB plugs built into it for an easy way to charge your devices. Worried about stains? Don't because the fabric is stain resistant.
Floyd's direct-to-consumer business model keeps its furniture prices low without compromising on quality or design. Based out of Detroit, Floyd has dedicated itself to becoming a more sustainable brand by opening up a secondhand marketplace to shop its used pieces.
It's pretty easy to identify a Floyd sofa. First, you'll notice its sleek and slim base — available in birch, walnut or upholstery — and then you'll notice its detached, somewhat flat (yet still plush) cushions. When you finally decide to get one of your own, the only issue you'll run into is what configuration you'll want to get.
Hay is a Danish brand that leans towards the more eclectic side of home accessories and furniture — think bright colors and unique silhouettes.
For a supreme lounging experience, look to Hay's Pandarine sofa. Its back cushions can be folded down, so it's sort of like a recliner. And if you want, you can opt for that same reclining cushion as the sofa's armrests or go for a more common cylindrical bolster.
You know what Ikea is, so there's no need to drone on about its sofas. You get what you pay for, there are more styles than you could ever possibly want and half the fun is putting it together yourself.
For under a grand, you get a huge sectional that the brand says can seat four, but will probably comfortably seat six to eight. The cover, which is machine washable, is a wool-like fabric that will hold up against daily wear and even your pets.
For a luxury sofa, look to Maiden Home. Its sofas (and other furniture pieces) are designed in New York, with each piece being made by hand in North Carolina. The brand only utilizes high-quality materials and so this is the kind of stuff you'll want to pass on for generations.
This is a sofa you sink into. The Jones is the brand's lowest and "most laid-back" shape, with a plush feel and deep seats. This sofa's cushions feature foam-wrapped springs, which are enveloped in a down and feather jacket, not too different from a comfy mattress. And with a look and feel like this, you may spend more nights than not dozing off.
One does not shop at RH unless they're looking to drop a pretty penny on some high-end furniture. Though if you're lucky enough to have the funds, you'll find yourself relaxing on some real luxury furniture.
The Cloud sofa might arguably be one of the most famous sofas around. It's a hit among celebrities and has seen a huge bump in notoriety thanks to TikTok and Instagram. As its name suggests, it almost feels like sitting on a cloud (whatever that might actually feel like).
After you've stocked up on your daily essentials, you can browse Target's huge selection of furniture. The mega-retailer carries a few third-party brands, but it also has its own in-house brands — like Threshold and Project 62 — that specialize in specific design styles.
The squared-off Calais comes in a beautifully rich green colorway that'll set it apart from the boring old sofas you used to have.
You can't escape Wayfair if you're shopping for furniture. Its low prices and massive — and we mean massive — selection make this a must-visit website for furniture shoppers. While its inventory is filled with some misses, it's not that hard to find something you'll like.
Leather sofas come with high price tags, so when your taste doesn't match your budget, go for faux. The Bridgeview is a tufted faux leather sofa with a classic look. We can't say much about its quality, but hey, it's just a little over $500 for a nice sofa.
For an upgrade to Ikea that's a little more wallet friendly than something like Design Within Reach, West Elm is the perfect medium. Shop modern designs that are either made by the brand's in-house team or opt for one of the many collaborative pieces that West Elm does with third-party designers.
We're not sure what makes this couch "Urban" but it's the shape, quality and design that matter. Its plush top-grain leather cushions are durable enough to handle your rowdy kids, and spills are a breeze to wipe up.
Buy furniture without ever leaving your sofa.
