Buying a sofa is a big deal. There are so many factors to consider: size, style, how much room you have, price… And because they’re so big and central to a space’s design, they’re typically the focal point of every room.

Just for you, we’ve collected our favorite sofas—love seats, sectionals, tufted, mid-century, neutral, colorful, you name it—and put them in one place to browse.

Consider your living room: what do you want to convey? Do you love entertaining? Is movie night “a thing” for you? Do you have hairy pets? Think about it long and hard, take a look through our sofa options and see what tickles your fancy.

Homepolish is the go-to brand for home and office inspiration. With beautiful photos of only Homepolish-designed projects, a funny, irreverent voice, and an inexhaustible supply of design ideas from their talented designers, the Homepolish Instagram and online magazine are mainstays of original, informative, and creative content.

Let's look at our options, shall we?

So, we can't direct you to a "buy" link for this sofa because it's from Craigslist. But it's perfect, right? The worn-in leather is a lovely cognac color that goes so well with the room's bright boho look. We just want to snuggle into its depths with a soft blanket and eat popcorn. Find similar options here, here, and here. Alternatively, checking Craigslist is probably a good idea.

And, of course, what would a sofa round up be without the requisite velvet option! Sophisticated and fun (especially in emerald), velvet is a luxurious fabric in any form but is particularly amazing when it's molded around a sofa in a bright, airy living room.

Color makes a big difference, obviously. This teal option from Apt2B (in Kelly Oxford's insanely attractive LA home) anchors the airy space and adds a great pop of color that lets you keep the rest of your furnishings really simple and elegant. A colorful sofa also means you can keep your walls white without leaving your room feeling too sterile.

This black chesterfield sofa from Home Decorators is another great option for a room with high ceilings or a cozy den. Because the floor is painted black, the furnishing recedes into the room acting as a comfortable extension of the architecture rather than an accent piece.

If you have the space and budget why not pull the ultimate parlor host move and get two matching sofas? Face them opposite each other so you can lounge on one with a cigarette holder, martini and silk robe while your khaki-clad friends ogle your fabulousness from the other one. These gems from HD Buttercup have shiny gold legs that accentuate the glam bouncing off your cat eye sunglasses.

Another classic: the leather chesterfield. Great for a multitude for design styles, this sofa will complement your Ye Olde library look, your vintage bohemian vibe or your rustic retreat. Also, did you know that pulling the couch away from the wall actually makes a room feel more open?

Sectionals are a great open floor plan solution because they work double time as area partitions. They can create a room of their own in a studio apartment or just cozy up your entertainment area. This one from West Elm is understated and welcoming.

This guy lives in one of our favorite SF bachelor pads. A sleeker alternative to the typical sofa bed, this example is easily cleaned, and because it doesn't absorb light (shiny!), it works for small dark spaces that need all the sunlight they can get.

No room for a coffee table AND a sofa? Dilemma resolved. Combine the two and you've saved yourself room and money! There are a plethora of options out there but we like this stylish one from Design Within Reach and this convertible sofa.
