We know a sofa is meant to be an investment piece, but dishing out a couple thousand dollars is a hard pill to swallow. While the concept of a couch both stylish and inexpensive sounds like an oxymoron, it doesn’t have to be. It just takes some digging—and we did it for you.
We found a convertible futon in a cool ochre that easily wipes clean with a cloth, a slipcovered score that’s both comfy and machine washable, and, for the frequent movers, a two-seater that packs up neatly into a box. The best news: They’re all less than $1,500. Consider your every sofa shopping conundrum sorted.
If You Want to Spend $600
Whether you favor a sleek two-tone design (with a built-in table!) or something more in line with what your grandma would have (read: made for napping), these picks are truly the best of both worlds.
If You Want to Spend $800
A white sofa is timeless—but no one said that has to mean boring. Bring in some texture with a rattan-backed settee or choose something with sculptural arms. Though if neutrals aren’t your cup of tea, this mossy green option will make a splash.
If You Want to Spend $1,000
Go luxe with Interior Define’s burgundy velvet treat (don’t worry; it’s a performance fabric that’s both kid- and pet-friendly) or, if practicality is your number-one priority, check out Burrow’s charcoal love seat. It folds up neatly, making moving day a breeze.
If You Want to Spend $1,500
Think of your sofa as the jewel of your living room. Crate & Barrel’s deep citron piece is made for hosting movie nights. For the feel of bespoke furniture at a fraction of the price, head to Anthropologie; this modular couch comes in 43 shades.
