Promising review: "Even at the regular price this love seat is worth every penny. It is very comfortable and slightly firm, yet cozy. The color is more cream than white. The throw pillows that came with it work perfectly with my decor. It arrived packaged very well, and the only assembly was to attach the four feet. Excellent experience!" — Lori

5. An armless loveseat that has a button-detailed back.

Promising review: "I am very pleased with the loveseat. The fabric and styling are simple, yet sophisticated.

It has a high seat (for anyone who is not fairly tall) and it is fairly firm, but it offers good support and styling." --Claire

Get it from Wayfair for $273.99.

7. A light blue modern sofa with two side and two square matching pillows.

Promising review: "I bought this lovely blue sofa for my new house and it's beautiful in person! I love the linen texture instead of micro-fiber.

Get it from Amazon for $365.50.


12. A couch that can also be separated into two chairs.

13. A mid-century modern sofa made with stain-resistant microfiber.

Promising review: "It think it's pretty comfortable -- I've fallen asleep on it multiple times. Our living room space is not that big, and when we put the couch together and placed it in the living room, we still had quite a bit of space for more furniture. The assembly wasn't bad at all, but it definitely requires two people. Overall I'm happy with the purchase." --Oghenekevwe

Promising review: "Great buy! It's just the right size for a small apartment. It's sturdy and there is no real assembly required except for hand screwing the base legs on underneath the sofa. It's also very comfy and doesn't feel cheap like other sofas in the same price range. I've had many guests stay over and sleep on this sofa and I've had no complaints." --Amazon Customer

16. A vintage-inspired convertible sofa made with soft velvet.,

Promising review: "I absolutely love this couch. It looks like a much more expensive piece than it really is.

It took me about an hour to put together by myself." --Melissa
