26 Affordable Sofas That Don’t Skimp on Style

Something you realize pretty quickly when jumping into the overwhelming world of furniture shopping is that finding affordable sofas can be a difficult process. Thankfully, there are better options these days. With a slew of direct-to-consumer companies offering sofas at fair prices and big-box retailers fighting to compete with IKEA’s notoriously affordable designs, there are a bunch of budget-friendly sofas out there from retailers big and small. Although some arrive flat-packed with low shipping costs, others come with quick customization services, so you don’t have to sacrifice style for function.

In other words, the sofa world is now your oyster, but combing through them all to find the crème de la crème can be a tedious task. This is where we come in. Since keeping tabs on the best designs is literally part of our job descriptions (someone’s got to do it!), we’ve curated a roundup of the most budget-friendly sofas that look more expensive than they actually are. Whether your taste leans tailored and midcentury modern or cozy and maximalist, we selected a wide range of affordable sofas to upgrade your living space. So, save yourself some sanity—and a few hours of fruitless browsing—by shopping our list of the best affordable sofas.
