    1. A stylishly chic loveseat that basically says, "I enjoy the simple things in life and I also might have minored in interior design."


    Shipping note: Delivery usually takes around two weeks.

    Promising review: "Wow! What a great little sofa for a great little price! I bought a similar style for a comparable price two years ago but this one is sturdier and amazingly comfy, and I love the grey tweed look fabric. The wooden legs came with padded feet already included and are the straight up and down type, not the less durable slanted type. I didn’t find the instructions until after assembly; it was pretty straightforward to put together, but easier with two people. I’m very pleased with the look, comfort, and quality, especially for the price!" —Jeanne

    Promising review: "OMG. This is a pretty piece of solid furniture. The tuxedo back, as it's called, is the sleekest among mid-century modern sofas/loveseats. The seat cushion is surprisingly deep. I'm 5'2" and if I sit all the way in my feet dangle. As good as it looks. Color, look, comfort, everything. Good buy I'd say. Ideal for small-made folk. It's lightweight enough to be easy to move around yet sturdy enough as a standalone piece. Orange is supposed to get the creative juices flowing. Maybe I will finish that opus now!" —Quilter

The middle can actually fold in half to transport. The fabric seems really good too. I would definitely buy it again for a kid's room or as a causal couch." —Lisa

    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 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! Our house looks so different. I was instantly in love with the look and the feel of the couch. The dark gray texture was the look I was looking for and what was even better was when I sat on it. It had a nice firmness and springiness to it. I know where I'll be for naps ;) I've already received many compliments on the couch from friends and family all asking where I got it. This is def the best choice I've made to enhance my home and would recommend it to anyone who's looking to upgrade!" —Amazon Customer

It looks classy and has a classic feel to it. If you're looking for a super plush item, this is more firm. I wanted firm and classic/aesthetically pleasing – it met my expectations." —ryan jauregui

    Promising review: "I looked at several of the modern styled velvet options before I made a purchase. So glad I went with this one! I didn't need a huge couch but needed something a little more than a love seat. This is a perfect compromise. Fits three adults comfortably. The material is soft. Not that stiff rough velvet. The cushions are firm but not overly so. They have some give. Great value." —Jme

    Shipping note: Delivery usually takes about 2–7 business days.

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this sofa. We used it to upgrade a bunk bed set in my preteen's room. It converted the space into a perfect loft area in the bedroom. It's perfect as a sofa and comfortable as a bed for guests. The quality is amazing. We have two cats and the hair just wipes right off, no lint roller needed. It is also stain-resistant, proven by a Cheeto incident the first week it was set up. The sofa was wiped totally clean with just a wet rag. The fabric is durable and I see it lasting years. It's easy to convert from a sofa to a bed as well, my four-year-old figured it out on her own." —Paige

It came with the legs in a pouch underneath the seat, and all you have to do is screw on the legs. That's it! It looks super classy in my living room." —Meg

    Get it from Walmart for $323.99+ (available in five colors, all under $400).

    Promising review: "I just needed something small, lightweight, and durable that would fit in a bedroom next to a bed...I was concerned that this was so inexpensive that it would be flimsy and not well-made...I WAS WRONG! It was easy to put together and very sturdy. It's GREAT that it was LITERALLY one of the CHEAPEST online AND free shipping with also LOOKS very stylish! Mission accomplished :-)" —Ed Alvut

    Get it from Amazon for $179.99.

    Shipping note: Delivery usually takes around nine business days.

    Promising review: "Love this sofa! The color is very vibrant and pretty true to the most vivid pics on Walmart's site. The sofa requires some assembly and it's definitely easier with two people since it makes putting the arms on easier. It seems to be well made and the material is beautiful. It looks like it will hold up well. The futon lets down easy and up again. When using for sleep, as others have reviewed, a foam topper would be good. With that in mind, I think this would be a suitable sleeper for occasional guests. I would purchase this again!" —dd1963

    Get it from Walmart for $296+ (available in three colors, one of which is over $400).

    18. A comfy velvet couch featuring extra cushioned seats, backrests, and armrests so you'll never complain about that darn couch throwing your back out again.,

    Shipping note: Delivery usually takes around 6–12 business days.

    Promising review: "I like that it came in two boxes making it easy to carry upstairs. It was a snap to put together. The legs are very sturdy and the gold blends with the pretty fabric so the color does not look like tacky brass or faux gold. The seat is not hard. It is cushy and surprisingly comfortable. The back cushions have hook and loop tape sewn in to hold them in place and are very soft. They are very comfortable and you do sink into them slightly. The welts are very well sewn and I can't believe I go this sofa in this price range. This piece looks like a high-end modern sofa. I was prepared to drop $1,000–$1,800 for the right piece to go with our retro LR and loved this color and style. As I write this I am seriously considering buying a second. It does not wobble, creek, or give in any way with two people sitting on it. The size is just right being not too small or too big for an apartment or small space. Two-seat sofas or 'loveseats' are usually kind of cramped with two people on them but this is not; it has plenty of space between you and is good for conversation. The packing was good as was the delivery. VERY HAPPY!" —Debbie

    Get it from Amazon for $378.99+ (available in three colors, all under $400).

    19. A square arm tufted loveseat boasting comfy cushions that won't lose their shape after you've spent all afternoon (and night...and perhaps early morning...) rewatching all the Marvel movies.,

    Shipping note: Delivery usually takes around two days for Prime members.

    Promising review: "Great loveseat for the money spent! Durable, yet light enough to move around. Very easy to put together. Comfortable space for two adults, yet compact enough to fit in a smaller room. Stylish, clean lines, great addition." —Heidi

    Get it from Amazon for $299.99+ (available in five colors, all under $400).
