Sitting on the floor sounds like something you’d do in college or during move-in day, but when you take a look at the current slate of cool sofas out there, you’ll notice they all have one important feature in common: They’re low to the ground. It used to be that mid-century legs once propped up our sitting spaces, but nowadays designers are creating a more loungy effect by doing away with them entirely. The result is cozy, a little sexy, and totally 2021. 

Just because you’re sitting closer to the floor doesn’t mean you can’t be comfortable. Each of these cushy, low-profile seating arrangements has sturdy support and enough cush to make you feel like you’re lounging on a cloud—and not on parquet. Here are our current favorites.

The Double Feature

cream sofa
Reema Back Cushion, Urban Outfitters ($119)

This is what you call a smart nomadic couch: Once assembled, the back and floor cushions act as a traditional sofa. And when they’re separated, you’ll have extra support when sitting on the floor or against a wall.


The One You’re Seeing Everywhere

Mario Bellini Camaleonda Sofa, Eternity Modern ($5)

Everyone from Hannah Bronfman to Athena Calderone has a Bellini sofa in their living room, and so naturally look-alikes abound. This reproduction comes close and can be transformed into a sectional for small spaces. 

The Easygoing Modular

Temps Calme, Roche Bobois ($16,400)

It would be hard not to binge an entire season of Ted Lasso on this ultracozy sectional. Plus armless ends mean less barriers to getting up for more snacks. 

The Other One You’re Seeing Everywhere

Sofa Without Arms Togo, Ligne Roset ($5,230)

Like the chicest beanbag on the planet, this sofa is ideal for those of us who suffer from furniture-placement indecision: It can easily be moved around your home depending on your mood.

The Supersoft One

Curved Plushtone Sofa, West Elm ($2,650)

A low seat combined with curvy edges makes for the perfect combination of laid-back and sophisticated.


The Boxy One

The Sectional, Floyd ($1,570)

Not all low-to-the-ground sofas have rounded shapes. This Floyd sectional is boxy in the best way—it’s sturdy while still being cozy and made with stain-resistant fabric that’s soft to the touch.
