    1. A convertible sofa perfect for when friends decided to crash at your place. Is the living room large enough to accommodate said friends? NOT REALLY, no! But at least this turns your couch into a bed with the snap of a finger.


    Dimensions: 2'7' 'H x 5'10'' W x 2'10 1/2'' D

    Promising review: "I searched high and low and deliberated between a couple of options, but I'm ultimately happy that I chose this sofa. It maintains clean lines, sits well, and naps well, too! The fabric is smooth to the touch and is easy to maintain. I especially liked that it has wooden legs, unlike many of the other inexpensive convertible sofas that have chromed metal legs." —Christina

    Get it from Wayfair for $252.99 (originally $479, available in three colors).

    2. A mid-century sofa with a sleek, modern design that looks significantly more expensive than it is. It even comes with two decorative pillows to trick everyone into thinking you actually tried to home-ify your new place!


    And yep, this comes with the decorative pillows you see above!

    Dimensions: 59"W x 32"D x 32"H

    Promising review: "I love this couch!!! I live in a 40-foot trailer and I wanted to find a couch that would fit in a small corner, but was also modern and cute. This did the trick! Assembly is also easy. You just have to twist on the legs and add the pillows and arms." —Nika Carroll

    Get it from Amazon for $239.99 (available in two colors).

    3. An overstuffed tufted loveseat that belongs in a home library, surrounded by volumes of literature and rare gin. Does my my high school AP English teacher own this very piece of furniture? It's highly likely.

    Pier 1 Imports

    Dimensions: 55.50" W x 36" D x 34.75" H

    Promising review: "I was looking for something leather and comfortable to include in my library. This fits the bill perfectly. I love the fabric design on the back and the sides, and it really adds warmth to the room." —Bretton P.

    Get it from Pier1 Imports for $749.95 (available in three colors).

    4. An upholstered loveseat you can prop right in front of the living room TV. It'll be perfectly cozy for your weekend-long Netflix binges, but thankfully won't take up 80% of your closet-sized apartment.


    Dimensions: 31.75" H x 67.24" W x 26.25" D

    Promising review: "I’m really happy with this buy! It’s the perfect size for a studio apartment, office, etc. It’s actually very comfortable. The back is low, but the back pillows are comfy and give support." —Rocky

    Get it from Target for $232.89 (originally $273.99, available in five colors)

    5. A splurge-worthy handcrafted sofa you can customize with an ottoman or chaise and low or high arms. And in true 2019 fashion, it's also got a built-in USB charger to ensure your phone doesn't die in the middle of that Instagram scroll. / Via @burrow

    It even has reversible cushions (one side is tufted and the other is solid) for when you feel like changing it up a bit, and the cushions are made from a fabric that is completely scratch- and stain-resistant.

    Dimensions: 86” L x 36” W x 35” H

    Get it from Burrow for $1,595 (available in five colors).

    6. A mid-century faux leather loveseat here to make you believe in L-O-V-E at first sit. I mean, sight.


    Dimensions: 44.8" x 29.2" x 31.2"

    Promising review: "I needed an new sofa that was small, matched my decor, and was somewhat resistant to my cats.. Assembly was easy and only took about 30 minutes, the seat is sturdy and comfortable, and the sofa itself takes up very little space." —M. Green

    Get it from Amazon for $211.99 (originally $467.50).

    7. A tiny cushy couch available in four neutral colors that are compatible with any color scheme. Whether your walls are blue or lime green, this sofa definitely won't clash.


    Dimensions: 61" W x 32.5" D x 35" H

    Promising review: "We are so pleased with our purchase. We've moved into an apartment in a Senior Retirement facility, and this loveseat is perfect for the size of the living room and it looks great! Our granddaughter put it together in 20 minutes and a number of folks, family and otherwise, have tried it out and said it felt very comfortable. I've never ordered a piece of furniture online before, but I'm glad I discovered Hayneedle." —Elizabeth

    Get it from Hayneedle for $334.56 (available in four colors).

    8. A splurge-worthy reclining sofa that (with just the push of a button) turns your afternoon cat nap into one of pure luxury. Why nap in your bed when your sofa is significantly more comfortable, am I right?

    West Elm

    Dimensions: 76" W x 41" D x 29" H

    Get it from West Elm for $2,399 (originally $2,998).

    9. An upholstered loveseat ideal for clumsy people most likely to spill red wine on their new couch. This is made with a durable fabric that is mercifully easy to clean.


    Dimensions: 62.2" x 30.7" x 31.5"

    Promising review: "Oh wow, this couch did not disappoint! I had an old couch that was long overdue for a replacement, so I was looking for something that would give my home a more updated and modern look. I came across this couch while browsing Amazon and thought it was a steal for the price. Within two days, a compact package arrived at my door. I couldn't believe a couch could be so compact. We assembled it fairly quickly and easily (~20 min) and voila! I was instantly in love with the look and the feel of the couch. The dark gray texture was the look I was going for, and the cushions have a nice firmness and springiness to it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $255.99 (originally $319.99, available in two colors and two sizes).

    10. A velvet sofa capable of taking any boring old living space and turn it into something far more glamorous. Velvet? In furniture form? Fit for royalty.

    Promising review: "This chaise is even more beautiful in person! The tufting is deep, the seating is very firm and very comfortable, and it's become the new favorite reading spot for my family. It also arrived at the scheduled time and in perfect condition." —Megmyday

    Get it from Amazon for $655.62 (available in four sizes and styles).

    12. A sleeper sofa you can easily adjust into a bed for visiting family members who have decided to stay over next month. Will they hog the bathroom? Yes! But at least you won't have to share your bed, too.


    Psst, this comes with two throw pillows!

    Dimensions: 36.5'' H x 87'' W x 37'' D

    Promising review: "I purchased this product less than a month ago and I love it! I assembled this by myself and it took me less than a hour to complete. Such a beautiful and comfy sofa bed! I've already had two friends sleep on it and they love it, too. If you have a small apartment — do not worry, this will easily fit! I love it and can't wait to buy more pillows to make it pop even more." —Sepideh

    Get it from Wayfair for $483.99 (available in eight colors).

    Get it from West Elm for $1,199+ (originally $1,499+, available in 66 colors).

    Get it from Hayneedle for $469.99 (originally $614.99).

    Get it from Target for $600.79 (originally $750.99, available in two colors).

    16. A leather loveseat complete with removable cushions and cherry-finished legs that looks like something an adult would buy. Which is what you are! An adult!


    Something about a leather sofa makes me think "successful young professional with an understanding of health insurance and the tax system" and I don't why.

    Dimensions: 54" W x 31" D x 34" H

    Get it from Hayneedle for $289.23 (originally $319.94).

    17. A tufted sofa you shouldn't purchase if you're prone to laziness. This comfy sofa will only worsen your mindless Instagram strolling and online shopping habits — you'll feel way too cozy to get up and be productive.


    Dimensions: 34" H x 54" W x 33.5" D

    Promising review: "I am very happy with this purchase. The item is the perfect size, is very comfortable, and looks just as nice in person as it does online.

    Get it from Target for $479.99 (available in three colors).

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $179+ (available in two sizes).

    Joss & Main

    Dimensions: 28.5'' H x 55.8'' W x 30'' D

    Promising review: "I love my new loveseat! It came fully built and all I had to do was screw on the feet. This is seriously gorgeous, even as accent seating." —Marta

    Get it from Joss & Main for $329.99 (originally $499.99, available in nine colors).

    20. A track arm sofa so cozy, your social life will probably suffer. Why go out on a Saturday night when you can bond with your furniture? It just doesn't make sense to leave.


    Dimensions: 73.5" W x 31" D x 35" H

    Promising review: "I purchased this sofa for my daughter's first apartment. The color was exactly as pictured, it was very easy to assemble, and (although firm), it is very comfortable. Buying another one for my son!" —Nicole
