    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 $590+ (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "This couch is literally so beautiful and comfy! It's a bit firm but it softens out over time. I've had it for about two weeks now and have gotten so many compliments. As a bonus, it came earlier than expected AND was super easy to assemble." —Brandy

    Get it from Target for $500+ (originally $570; available in three colors).

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this these item, we are downsizing our empty nest. Being able to configure in any way is very conducive to entertaining in small quarters. The extra storage is also extremely appreciated. Delivery arrived on time without damage. SUPER easy to assemble and comfortable." —Isabeau

    Get it from Wayfair for $1,080 (originally $1,249.99; available in three colors). 

    4. An Amazon-brand small sectional sofa coming in at just 80 inches, and available in a denim fabric that, mark my words, is going to be a trend. Jofa? Jectional? Whatever, it's the next big thing.

    Promising review: "I SCOURED the internet and half of my city trying to find the perfect couch for my space in my budget. I kept coming back to this one and I am so glad I followed my gut. It’s so cute, the fabric isn’t itchy at all but has a bit of a tweed look, dog hair sweeps off easy enough, it’s sturdy, firm-but-not-too-firm. I read some reviews that mention that the chaise sits a smidge higher than the seat and its true — it’s not so much that it sits any higher but more so about the fact that when you sit on one end of the cushion, the other end see-saws up a bit. This does mean, however, that my feet go numb after having them propped up too long. But if I’ve sat on the couch with my feet propped up long enough that they fell asleep, it’s probably time to go do something else so I don’t mind. I’m thrilled with my purchase!" —Maggie

    Get it from Amazon for $865.85 (available in four colors).

    5. A positively petite 60.5" Burrow sectional lounger that's the apartment-friendly couch of the future: in addition to being just the right shape for you to curl up and take a nap, it's made using stain-resistant fabric!

    Promising review: "I live in a studio with two small lap/couch dogs and one fat cat. I was tired of feeling squished and uncomfortable on my small hard futon. I love this lounger. I use it as my main and only couch. It's small and yet, because of the flexibility, it can be made longer or kept in chaise position. It definitely takes two people to assemble. It was a bit like a big puzzle, but the instructions are very clear and easy to understand. Just don't discard the clearly labeled boxes for identification. I'd also suggest only opening one box at a time. It's firm but very comfortable. The fabric is very nice, not at all cheap looking. I'm very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend Burrow." —Veronica C.

    Get it from Burrow for $1,235 (available in four fabric colors and three leg colors).

    6. A 78.5" faux leather sectional so classy and functional and sleep-inducing you won't even notice that it's... shall we say, "fun-sized."

    Promising review: "Perfectly sized for this smaller space. The couch is very comfortable. The packaging it arrived in was so clever. It arrived in two boxes and was vacuum-sealed to be compact and take up a very small amount of space. The assembly was easy and did not take very long to complete. I love the look and style. Perfect for my son's bedroom for hanging out." —Jeannie

    Get it from Wayfair for $670+ (originally $719.99; available in two colors).

    7. A 74" reversible sectional that genuinely looks like the comfiest place ever to sprawl out and do absolutely nothing, because that is what you deserve.

    Get it from Wayfair for $1,079.99 (originally $1,995).

    8. A 78.8" convertible sectional, because TBH, there's no reason you should have to settle for a loveseat that serves no functional purpose in your apartment. Give me a chaise or nothing at all!

    Promising review: "I have ordered two of these sofas. The second because I was so impressed with the first. The packaging is brilliant and assembly instructions easy to follow. Honestly, assembly can be done by one person in less than 30 minutes. Can't beat the price. Love the looks and the fabric on these sofas. They are on the smaller side but very comfortable for three people to sit. Height and depth of cushions make it easy to get up from the couch without a lot of effort. They are firm and comfortable for sitting or taking a nap." —analogmad

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

    Psst...here are some more sectionals from Amazon that reviewers truly love.

    9. A pint-sized 73" reversible sectional sofa if your living room desperately needs an upgrade, but you still want to have room to, like, walk around in it and stuff.

    Promising review: "Great concept for a sectional!! This couch went together surprisingly fast! It feels very solid to sit on, nothing wobbles. The cushions are great and it sits a little on the firm side, but firm in a supportive and comfortable way. The light gray is almost a beige gray, so it will not look blue at all." —Joanna

    Get it from Wayfair for $1,129.99 (available in two colors).

Honestly, it’s the best sofa that I have in my house — it’s so comfortable and very durable, I can sit all day on it. It’s a great product and very sturdy and affordable. I’m thinking of getting another one for my 16-year-old son for the basement and make it as a theater, since it's perfect for movie night. I highly recommend this beautiful sofa." —Target Customer

    Shipping: This item takes about 3–4 weeks to build, then arrives within 10–14 days when shipped.

    Promising review: "I needed to replace my couch and was looking for a piece that was sturdy and comfortable while not feeling too bulky. I'm plus-size, so I wanted something that I wouldn't be worried about every time I sat down on it. I loved being able to order but wait to choose my color until I got samples and I could see the color in my space. Once I picked a color, the folks at Apt2B were super helpful in getting my order placed and with any additional questions. When it arrived, I was a bit nervous as it looked so light and pretty delicate. It was super easy to put together by myself. But once I sat down, it felt sturdy and didn't really react to my weight which was such a relief. Overall, it's been great for my smaller living room and I'm really enjoying it!" —Liz S.

    Get it from Apt2B for $2,598 (available in 64 colors and three leg finishes).
