    Promising review: "Great couch for a small apartment! I live in less than 450-sq ft. and this fits perfectly. I would add some extra stuffing or old throw pillows into the back cushions for some extra fluff. But other than that, super great for the price and space it takes up." –victoria

    Get it from Walmart for $499.98 (originally $799).

    2. Or a deep gray convertible sofa just as comfy and convenient but slightly more stain-forgiving. (No hate to all the light-sofa owners out there; me and my morning coffee just can't be trusted).

    Promising review: "I am so glad I took a risk on this sectional, which came two days early. I needed something that was between 74–75 inches and this fits perfectly in my loft space. It is really comfy. The cushions are still inflating minus the chaise because that was not in a vacuum bag. The instructions were very clear and the pieces are not heavy. It took me about 45 minutes to put the entire sectional together. Worth the price for sure." –Shante

    ssemble for one person and a comfortable couch... I recommend this one!"

    Get it from Amazon for $390.63+ (available in two colors).

    3. A small sectional sofa designed to provide optimal lounge potential while not taking up a whole lot of space. Plus, the button-tuft detailing is too classic to pass up.

    Promising review: "I was looking for a new couch to replace my old droopy one that was on its last legs without breaking the bank. I pulled the trigger on this couch because I really liked the color, and honestly, I’m impressed. Assembly was simple and didn’t take longer than 20 minutes. Instructions were clear and the necessary tools were shipped along with the couch. My living room is a bit narrow, and the couch fits perfectly. The couch is sturdy but not overly heavy. The cushions are firm and great for my back. For the price, you can’t get a better deal. 10/10, would buy with my limited budget again. :)" –Pssss

    Get it from Amazon for $399.99 (available in three colors).

    6. A space-saving sofa to take up that dingy corner of your apartment where you've always wanted a couch to go but feared you wouldn't have the space...voila!

    White linen sectional

    Shipping: Free, ships within two to four weeks

    Promising review: "As stated, it’s a space-saving couch so if you’re in a 700 square ft. apartment (like me) then this sofa is for you! The color is bold and cheerful (I chose blue) and brightens the room. It is on the firm side, but it comes with a total of five pillows that easily make up for it. I will say if you’re tall, you might want to consider other options as your legs will probably dangle off the ottoman. But again, it’s called a space-saving couch for a reason. Assembly was easy to do, and the frame isn’t very heavy so hauling it upstairs isn’t a big deal (just maybe bring a friend). I spent a lot of time searching for the right size sofa for my living room at the right price and with a modern design — this definitely is the one. 10/10 would recommend." —Hannah Saunders

    Get it from Sofamania for $369.99 (originally $529.99).

    7. A gray velvet sectional with super-soft cushiness and the glorious feeling of comfort you'll get from sinking into it after a hard day's work.

    Shipping: Free, available to ship in one to two days, fastest free delivery arrives in two weeks

    Promising review: "At first, I was apprehensive about buying a sofa at a new store with no reviews on Amazon but boy am I glad I did. I love my sofa, it looks amazing! It's honestly beautiful, my place looks so much better now. The blue velvet is stunning. Heck, it looks even better than it does in the photo. The velvet is smooth and does not irritate the skin at all. The cushions are comfortable, especially the back cushions. Please note that at first sit, the bottom cushions are not insanely soft. They are not hard but you won't sink into them when you take that first seat. Keep in mind the sofa is new so it needs to be broken in and the cushions were shipped vacuum sealed. The packaging states to give the cushions 72 hours to get shape but honestly, mine had great shape and looked amazing as soon as I took them out of the wrapping. Also, know that the chaise is detachable. You can put it on the left or right. Lastly, this was the fastest shipping I've ever seen. Amazon said a week delivery but it arrived in three days!!!" —Arche Jean

    Get it from Amazon for $457.98 (available in four colors and two styles).

    Shipping: Free, ships within four to five business days

    Promising review: "I don’t normally write reviews, but this couch is impressing me so much I felt the need to praise it! The cushions felt a little stiff at first but they have settled to a nice firmness about a week in. My husband loves the chaise part, as he likes to lay out. His legs do hang over a bit, but he is tall. My daughter and I fit perfectly on the other cushions. The size wasn’t really a concern since we have a bigger living room, but it’s a great size for a regular family. The faux leather seems durable and is soft. This is very comfortable and is eye-pleasing!" –Lora

    Get it from Amazon for $489.99 (available in two colors).

    10. A reversible couch that just looks like the ideal spot for binging the heck out of some new shows, falling asleep on, then waking up covered in Cheeto dust — aka the perfect night in.


    Shipping: Free, arrives in two weeks

    Promising review: "We needed a new couch for our small apartment. We were working on a budget, so I wasn't expecting high quality. It's definitely a great deal for a modern couch. It fits three people comfortably, four if you don't mind being close. It's sturdy and pretty comfortable because we've slept on it a few times already. The only issue you should have is the cushions sliding off but you can just buy velcro." —RN

    Get it from Wayfair for $499.99 (originally $699; available in three colors).

    12. A dark reversible couch that's a *smidge* over $500, but worth the extra bucks so you can complete your vampire-themed office or living room. Also, this sofa will expertly hide the years of stains and spills to come.


    Shipping: Free, arrives within one week

    Promising review: "This couch is perfect for smaller spaces, like an apartment or den. The material looks like genuine leather, is quite comfy, and the adjustable ottoman makes this even better. You can adjust the cushions to have a sectional style or a couch with an ottoman. Overall I’m pleased with the product and would recommend it to someone looking for a good bargain." —Tyler

    Get it from Wayfair for $519.99 (available in two colors).

    13. A durable sofa that has it all — style, durability, and especially comfort (tell me those cushions don't look like marshmallows) and tbh, if I was a sofa I'd be jealous.


    Shipping: Free, arrives within 11 days

    Promising review: "This little sofa packs a huge style punch! I’ve never written a review about a sofa, and especially one so affordably priced, but I just had to let you know that this is absolutely the best sofa, the absolute easiest assembly process, and the absolute best quality for the price that I have ever owned! It looked exactly like the picture and is surprisingly comfortable. I will keep this like an old favorite car or a piece of old luggage until it falls apart, and from my observation, that’s going to be a long, long time! I can’t find one thing wrong with this furniture. If I had room I’d purchase another one! Do not hesitate to make this purchase!" —Marianne

    Get it from Wayfair for $489.99 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "I give five stars for this couch!!! The shipping was quick, and the seller was very positive and fast in response. The couch arrived with no damage, and assembly was easy and quick no problem at all. I love love this color, it gives our living room such an upright vibe. Not too big, not too small, enough for two people. Can you find any other couch like this under $1,000?!?!?!" —Charlotte

    Get it from Amazon for $459.99 (available in three colors).
