    24 Stylish Couches Your House Guests Won't Believe You Spent Less Than $400 On

    Think about it: If you save money on the couch itself, you'll have more left over to buy a *ton* of fluffy pillows.

    Promising review: "We absolutely love this sofa!! We put it in our play room and it’s the perfect size and is so comfy! The quality is very good and it was easy to put together – I did it myself in about 20 minutes. The packaging was nice, nothing was damaged and everything was covered individually. It’s very soft and the back cushions are a down material, so you sink into them. I love the wood accents on the legs, making it a little more neutral and casual than a typical velvet couch. The blue is beautiful – it’s not a navy but not a cobalt either, it’s a really nice, muted color in between. We have already had a spill and it cleaned up easily with our favorite carpet cleaner. It’s easy for my kids to get on and off of but it’s not too low to the ground to make it uncomfortable for adults, either. I can comfortably lounge on it and I am 5’11". I think it’s a great sofa, especially for the price point." –Sgibson15

    Get it from Target for $360 (originally $560; available in three colors). 

    2. A modern muted orange loveseat to add a pop of color and personality to your home (or office, or wherever, really).

    3. A 71-inch mid-century futon for you to recline in and catch some Zzzs after a long day of being your fabulous self.

    4. A small-space-approved sectional because living in tight quarters doesn't mean you can't optimize seating, nor does buying a quality sectional sofa need to break the bank.

    Promising review: "I don’t usually write reviews for anything but this is absolutely perfect! The assembly was quick. The instructions were simple and straightforward. It only took about and hour to put together...If you don't mind a firm seat, it’s great. It's not like those couches you sink into. It got to me days before the estimated day. And it's affordable. If you’re considering buying it… GO FOR IT! <3" –Grace

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful little loveseat. Easy to assemble and the fabric is exactly what I was expecting. The seat is high and firm, which makes it easy for my older in-laws and disabled husband to get up and down from. It's not the softest, most snuggly couch, which is fine with me because it makes up for that by being so pretty. I’d buy the matching sofa." –Bobbie

    Get it from Walmart for $323.99+ (originally $679.98+; available in four colors, all for under $400). 

    14. A plushy velvet sofa here to take your living room from "blah" to "fancy pants," which we all know is the highest level of sophistication.

    17. A super stylish loveseat that's basically a requirement for anyone with Parisian home decor.

    18. A velvet futon to help you finally fulfill your dreams of furnishing your home with vintage-inspired decor. And much like George Costanza, if it was socially acceptable you too would drape yourself in velvet!

    Promising review: "This is such a comfortable sofa. It is in the parlor of my B&B and I get comments on it constantly.

    Promising review: "Very happy with this purchase. Easy to assemble I did it alone in maybe 15 minutes. Easy to clean.
