Whether you live alone or you have a house full of roommates, a sofa is an essential part of any living situation. No one wants to sit on the floor of your apartment bro, that’s disgusting! Sofas are each their own unique piece of furniture though. You can’t just close your eyes, point blindly and find the perfect sofa! That’s just not how it works.

Will it fit in my apartment properly? Is it comfortable? Will it hold all of my friends? It takes a lot of delicate thought and consideration. But never fear, I am here to guide you in the right direction!

The City Dweller

So you live in the greatest city in the world and your apartment shows it! It takes about 3 foot steps, if you’re lucky, to get from the living room to the kitchen. This 2 seat sofa is perfect for your tiny space. It measures at 31″D x 30″H x 55″L so it’ll fit perfectly compact in any corner of your humble abode.

Speaking of compact couches, this charming 1950’s sofa is rare, which shows in the price. That’s no worry to you though, you’re living in the greatest city in the world and making enough money to buy a rare couch from the 1950’s. Just please, ask your guests to keep it clean because the upholstery is original.

So you don’t have room in your extremely humble abode for even a sofa built for two? Well, thankfully we’ve got some one seaters as well. You can scatter a few different chairs around the house for guests but I’m assuming if you don’t have room for a small sofa, you probably don’t have many guests so this seat might be just for you!

The Loft Lover

If you’re anything like me, you live in a loft with a buncha dudes! It’s a fun time but there’s always about twice as many people over than actually pay to live there. That’s why you’ve got to love sectionals. You’re going to need a big loft for this mid-century sectional though, it clocks in at 10′ x 8′.

So your loft isn’t THAT big and you hate the color yellow. This beautiful light gray sofa is made with canvas material and is remarkably comfortable. It’s custom made and in great condition. It may need a few stitches here and there but that won’t stop you from having a theatre-size amount of people over to watch the big game or a movie!
