5. Burrow

If you’re looking for a compact, low-maintenance sofa with a tailored look and reasonable pricing, Burrow is a great option.

Burrow is famous for its ergonomic designs. Stephen Kuhl, the co-founder, herniated two discs while in college. This has motivated him to prioritize designs that promote long-term back health and comfort. The other co-founder, Kabeer Chopra, helps inject style into designs, resulting in extraordinarily comfortable, durable, and modern sofas. 

The brand also uses durable, scratch and stain-resistant materials and offers a wide range of customization opportunities varying from fabrics to colors to leg styles and arm heights. Options from six-leg finishes add to the customization; customers can choose from wood and metal options.

The Floyd company keeps it simple with two sofa products; the sectional and a sofa. Its direct-to-consumer business model keeps the product’s prices low without compromising design or quality.

The sofas contain different modular pieces you can put together in various ways to suit your living space activities.

7. Herman Miller

Herman Miller is considered one of the great places to shop for a sofa. It offers both mid-century modern designs and ergonomic office chairs. Its products are durable, but they don’t come cheap. Although it’s mostly known as the home of trendy designs, it is no stranger to post-modern designs either.

Herman Miller manufactures its furniture in its own factories in Michigan and China, and their typical standard shipping usually takes one to three weeks.

8. IKEA

IKEA is your best option if you’re looking for a stylish, low-cost couch. The brand offers numerous styles; the fun part is putting them together yourself. The company has pioneered home design trends worldwide, promoting Scandinavian styling and making minimalism and functionality the dual necessities for sofa buyers.

Their sofas, especially the famous sleeper sofa, are comfortable and available in a variety of fabrics and leather coverings at affordable prices. Each piece is handmade by artisans in North Carolina according to the customer’s specifications. Like sister company, AllModern, Wayfair offers free fabric samples, fast, free shipping, and a good dose of mystery regarding its overseas manufacturers.

Also, the advantage of being a mega online retailer is that most items have many customer reviews and user-taken photos. So you can counter-check each item in greater depth.

14. West Elm

Like its parent company Williams Sonoma, West Elm sells sofas and décor pieces with a high-end look. Its aesthetic inspiration is a slightly edgier, modern design suitable for customers looking for chic, affordable sofas.

The brand sofas feature seat cushions stuffed with a blend of synthetic material and down feathers to provide luxurious softness. You can customize sofas by selecting from a wide range of fabrics, colors, and finishes on wooden frames and legs.

Many of West Elm’s sofas are sophisticated, with great lines and versatile, modern colors. Its collection of sofas is sourced from far and wide. Therefore, most of its items are crafted by artisans from far-flung communities. Also, besides the online shops, it has physical showrooms that allow you to test out pieces in person and make your orders, including custom orders and deliveries.

15. Pottery Barn

This is the go-to sofa brand for the classic touch. A sofa from Pottery Barn is virtually guaranteed never to go out of style. However, we cannot predict what’s next in the sofa industry. But Pottery Barn has remained a staple for décor-minded folks and interior designers.

We rank Pottery Barn among the best sofa brands for its lounging prowess and wide range of designs. It has become more diversified and eclectic over the years while still showcasing its classic lines. 

If you’re considering Pottery Barn sofas, check out some of the company’s more popular sofas. The Cameron, York, and Pearce are some collections that will leave your living space sophisticated.

16. Interior Define

Interior Define is one of the best furniture brands to consider if you want a customizable sofa. The company allows you to be the designer to make a piece that is uniquely yours.

Interior Define has more than 15 collections of loveseats, sofas, modular sofas, sleeper sofas, and daybeds. Each piece of the brand’s furniture is made to order by artisans in Vietnam and China.

17. Anthropologie

Anthropologie is famous for its unique style that blends Bohemian, modern, and rustic styles. Anthropologie’s trendy products come at a bit of a premium, but many customers will often pay extra, given the strong design features and quality of its sofas.

The sofas, like the other Anthropologie items, are undoubtedly quite different from what you’ll find from most retailers. Some sofas feature a mix of different materials or fabrics, non-standard shapes, or other distinct features that will make them a focal point in your living space.

Currently, there are more than 200 Anthropologie stores worldwide, but most of the company’s exclusive pieces are only available by ordering through the website or shopping in the storefront locations.

18. Blu Dot

Blu Dot is a Minneapolis-based sofa brand focused on modern designs and well-crafted furniture. Its sofas could be considered averagely priced, with great build quality that often includes covered high-resiliency foam cushions and upscale kiln-dried hardwood frames.

Blu Dot items are designed in-house and crafted to have personality and purpose, and the shipping time depends on stock. The company offers a variety of mid-century and modern-inspired pieces ranging from sofas and sectionals.

19. Lovesac

Lovesac makes the world’s most customizable sofas. The modular pieces of furniture from the brand are adaptable to fit into several arrangements with other pieces.

The brand’s sofas are manufactured with Durafoam fill for comfortability and durability. The washable fabric coverings are made from recycled plastics to withstand spills and messes.

Based on Lovesac’s modular designs and durable materials, its sofas may be ideal for family homes with pets and children. However, if you’re seeking a formal or elegant look, Lovesac may not be your optimal choice.

20. Sundays

At Sundays, the sofa shopping experience is designed to be as relaxed and hassle-free as a Sunday morning. The brand was founded by four friends who were passionate about beautifully functional furniture. It offers a curated collection of items that will inspire your home and elevate its aesthetic.

This online company eliminates traditional markups, allowing you to get quality products at an affordable price. Every Sunday collection item is chosen with relaxation and comfort in mind.

21. Coddle

Coddle is another direct-to-consumer furniture brand that enables you to furnish your space effortlessly without leaving your home. The company started with the Toggle line, which includes chairs, couches, and ottomans, and it has increased its collections to a wide variety of styles, including a wide range of classy convertible sofas.

Even though the brand products lack the build quality of a premium standalone sofa, its range of dual-duty furniture is worth the cost, especially with the included extras such as the USB ports. Your ordered items can be delivered in one to two weeks, but they don’t offer sampling upholstery swatches beforehand.

22. La-Z-Boy

As the founder of the original recliner, La-Z-Boy is famous for creating some of the most comfortable sofas on the market. The company makes both sleeper and reclining sofas, with back cushions ranking among the coziest.

La-Z-Boy pinnacle sofa

La-Z-Boy sofas have a few sleek modern designs, but they major on recliners. They prioritize comfort, so if comfort is your main concern, this is the brand for you.

 On the downside, La-Z-Boy doesn’t allow returns (only a three-day exchange) and can take longer to deliver your sofa. But they have several showrooms for you to visit and test before making a purchase. This will help you in avoiding to make a sofa return.

Fina Take

Buying a new sofa signifies a major investment in style and comfort for the living room. A sofa should be attractive and complementary to the decor, a place of solace, and durable in service terms. Best sofa brands offer high-quality construction with heavy-duty performance fabrics and opportunities for customizing designs, fabrics, colors, and sizes. Besides the budget and designs, ensure you choose a great quality sofa brand.
