    1. An eye-catching tufted sofa that belongs in a stately library but is equally suited for weekends spent parked in front of the TV.


    Minimal assembly is required for this couch — just attach the legs!

    Promising review: "I bought this in slate in late July for my new place and it's so beautiful. My boyfriend doesn't think it's comfy but he likes squishy, sink-in-them couches and I like a couch that's a bit more firm. I've taken many a nap on this one and it's great! It's also surprisingly durable. I've had two 6-month-old lab-rottie puppies since September running amuck, jumping up on the couch to play fight with dirty paws, and scratching at the bottom when toys get lost underneath. I also have a 4-year-old who isn't allowed to eat anything outside of popcorn or chips on the couch but you know, somehow she's MESSY anyway :). I use a hand spray bottle of carpet cleaner for any legitimate messes and the couch looks practically brand new still. I thought for sure we'd all destroy it and I'm just so impressed with how it's holding up! I get so many compliments on this couch. Highly recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $1,168.99+ (available in two sizes and in eight colors).

    2. A tufted faux leather sofa with memory foam cushions for the perfect balance of squish and support if you're tired of being eaten alive by sunken couch cushions.


    Yes, those cute bolstered pillows on each side are included! And the only assembly required is to screw on the four wooden legs.

    Promising review: "Love the details on the couch. The color really stands out and the quality is really lovely. I appreciate that it's nice and firm, which is good on my back. I do see this lasting for a long time at my place." —Temitayo

    Get it from AllModern for $1,080 (originally $1,347; available in three colors).

    3. A sleek L-shaped sectional to really take your lounging game to the next level with a built-in chaise that can be moved to either end to accommodate your current (and future) room layout.


    And assembly is super simple! Just screw on the legs.

    Promising review: "The order was processed very quickly. I was able to pick a delivery window for a few hours and the guy who dropped it off was great. Comes in a giant box and it's all put together except screwing on the legs. The legs are stored in the zipper compartment on the couch bottom. Very comfy couch, not too firm or soft and I love the color. I looked around at a lot of places and I'm pleased with this one. Only negative for me is that the chaise piece doesn't physically attach to the main couch it's just pushed up against it. That being said it stays in place well and hasn't been an issue." —Roxanne Grantham

    Get it from Amazon for $893.05 (available in five colors).

    4. A velvet sofabed for the entertainer who's always wanted a pull-out couch but never thought one could fit in their pint-sized living room. Enter this velvet dream, which manages to jam a full-sized bed into a piece that's not-so-gigantic.


    No need to start shopping for a mattress — this couch comes with one!

    Get it from Amazon for $719.73+ (available in four colors).

    5. A fringe-trimmed sofa because you've seen enough rectangle couches to last a lifetime and could go for something a little more ~curvaceous~.

    Marie Burgos Collection

    Marie Burgos Collection is a Black woman-owned small biz fronted by Marie Burgos, an interiors designer born and raised in Paris. Her contemporary furniture and lighting designs combine elements of mid-century modern decor and Feng Shui, of which she is a certified master.

    Get it from Marie Burgos Collection $5,650 (available in 12 fabric colors and eight fringe colors).

    6. A classic sofa so you can trick guests (and your butt) into thinking you spent a lot more money on this minimalist beauty than you actually did.


    Promising review: "I was worried when ordering this online without having seen these in person, but I've heard of this company before and its good reviews. Wonderful buy. The sofa isn't too soft, and isn't too firm. Color is as depicted online. I often work from home, and I'm glad the seats don't make me sink in so much — I can sit comfortably and with good posture on these, but able to rest nicely on them too! Also, I wanted something that would be easier to clean. Glad to find the slot in between the seats is well stitched and not so deep either. Easy to pick up any little things that may fall in (and same goes for the sides by the armrest). No more cell phone-eating sofas. Personally, I like that I could unzip the back pillows for the back too. I'm so glad I got this couch !" —Jannell

    Get it from Amazon for $369.99 (available in four colors).

    7. A striking big-armed sofa that manages to look incredibly modern yet homey all at the same time with the gently curved continuous backrest and included matching throw pillows!


    Capsule is a small Los Angeles-based design studio that utilizes a mix of in-house designers and local emerging talent to deliver beautiful furniture pieces that are surprisingly affordable considering the quality.

    Promising review: "I love my couch so much! It looks exactly like the pictures and really comfortable." —Jennifer K.

    Get it from Capsule for $1,499 (available in two colors).

    8. A timeless velvet sofa if you need a chameleon-like couch that can blend in with any decor and is comfortable enough to withstand some serious all-day lounging about.


    The seat and back cushions use an eco-friendly synthetic-down, derived from recycled PET plastic, and the frame is constructed with kiln-dried 100% FSC®-Certified hardwood.

    Promising review: "As always, I am a bit nervous about the fabric used for items online, but this one is a very nice quality and the cushions are not 'soft and mushy' but nice a firm, so should last a long while." —Mark

    Get it from AllModern for $2,395 (available in four colors).

    9. A modern loveseat sofa to bring Instagram-worthy big couch-style to your teeny tiny studio apartment.


    The package includes everything you need for a solo, under 15-minute assembly.

    Promising review: "This couch is perfect for my little apartment. It is small, but big enough to sit on next to somebody else. The material doesn't look terribly cheap as I was afraid it might. Such a great value for the money. Keep in mind this is not a luxurious couch — it's not like sitting on a cloud but it's awesome for $200. The gray color is a really relaxing light shade. The back cushions velcro onto the couch...I will say if you wiggle while sitting up, you can hear the velcro strips making a little noise. Arrived in a big box. Would be too heavy for me personally to carry up any steps but alone I was able to drag into my apt. and assemble. Only 'assembly' is screwing on (four screws each leg) the legs of the chair. And sticking on the back cushions. Would recommend!" —Kimb

    Get it from Amazon for $266.99+ (available in three colors).

    10. A bohemian floating sofa for anyone stressed out by the thought of not only shopping for a couch, but side tables too!? This all-in-one masterpiece could be the only thing in the room and guests would still "ooh" and "ahh" at your impressive design know-how.

    Masaya & Co

    Masaya & Co is the evolution of a Nicaraguan reforestation project launched in 2008.

Their site beautifully describes their team as a group of "Multi-cultural designers, artisans, farmers, craftsmen, and tree huggers…"

    Get it from Masaya & Co for $3,900 (available in two finishes).

    11. A tufted foam futon because sometimes a cuddly movie night requires that your very stylish couch become a recliner and/or bed STAT, and this one can do just that.


    Promising review: "The blue is a bit lighter than it shows, but it’s a really beautiful color and I love it. The comfort isn’t anything less than I expected, but it’s not terrible. Folded out into a futon isn’t bad at all; my teen son wanted to sleep on it three nights in a row and thought it was comfy. You can fold it down if you feel like lounging for a movie night — then you have lots of room to spread out, kinda fun. It was easy to assemble. So far very happy with my purchase!" —amajyn

    Get it from Amazon for $392.99+ (available in five colors).

    12. A cushy modular sectional with under-cushion storage that can easily be reconfigured as a U- or L-shaped sectional so months from now when you get bored with your decor you can easily shake up your space.


    Promising review: "The item came in a few days and was packaged very well. The instructions were very simple and easy to follow. I put it together by myself in under an hour. It looks great, very comfortable and spacious. I love the storage under each seat. You can also tuck in the little cloth loops made for accessing the storage for a more sleek look. They’re not necessary to lift it." —Sage Blige

    Get it from Amazon for $899.99 (available in four sizes and in two colors).

    13. A made-to-order handcrafted couch that can be customized every which way — size, fabric, wood finish — to perfectly match your dream aesthetic.

    Promising review: "I had never ordered a couch online before — but it was so easy to review the swatches and take measurements according to the guide. Customer service was very helpful and I liked receiving the updates as the couch was being made. The finished product is absolutely gorgeous! Great quality, comfortable, and beautiful design/fabric. I did the Carmine in performance herringbone. And the Crypton treated fabric is like magic....!" —Lilly

    Get it from Maiden Home for $2,400+ (available in eight sizes, 57 fabric options, and four wood finishes).

    14. A compact fabric loveseat with a side pocket and dual USB-port if you've ever experienced the pain of leaning over an armrest because your too-short phone charger won't reach. Now you can simultaneously charge and scroll in convenient comfort.


    Promising review: "I really like my product! The cushion is not very comfortable so that would be something to keep in mind. However, it is very cute and easy to assemble!" —Jill

    Get it from Amazon for $219.99.

    15. A luxe reclining sectional with built-in cupholders to really take your binge-watching to the next level. Spread out, kick back, and get mad every time Netflix has the audacity to ask "Are you still watching?"

    A dark gray L-shaped sectional with both the end seats in a reclining position and two cup holders by the right-most seat

    Promising review: "This is the world's most comfy couch! I took a chance ordering this; I honestly had no idea what to expect. I got pretty worried when I learned that it would take over a month to be delivered, but I have to tell you IT WAS SO WORTH IT! The couch is so plush, it just cushions you from head to toe. The fabric is soft, not and doesn’t feel fabric-y... it’s more like a leather/suede feel, very very soft and cozy. Every single person who has sat on this couch immediately oooh’s and aaaah’s and no one can believe it’s from Amazon. The recliners are great and almost lay you down completely. I don’t have a single negative thing to say about this piece of furniture about two months into owning it." —Christina

    Get it from Amazon for $1,378.99.

    16. A glam Hollywood sofa with channel-tufting and loads of custom upholstery options for tying together your luxe, modern living space in fabulous fashion.

    Get it from Wicked Furniture on Etsy for $1,400 (available in 69 upholstery styles).

    17. A spacious recessed-arm sofabed packed with a queen bed because your parents have made it clear that post-pandemic they will not endure another night on your 10-year-old air mattress when they visit. Before then, you can use the bed as your weekend oasis in front of the TV — absolutely no judgments here!


    Promising review: "This is a great sofa. Sometimes sofas that have sleepers are not comfortable to sit on. That is not the case with this one. It is great for lounging. I chose the micro-suede fabric in coffee. It’s very soft and a nice neutral color. You can remove all of the cushions, even the back ones, when you pull out the bed. I chose to put them back because they are so cushy. Although I haven’t spent the night on the mattress yet, I couldn’t feel springs when I laid on it...a definite plus. It is very easy to convert." —Amber

    Get it from Wayfair for $1,549.99 (available in 103 styles).
