Maybe you've just arrived home after a long day at the office, bookended by an hour-long commute each way. Or perhaps you've spent the entire day taking care of everyone else besides yourself and you've finally tucked the kids into bed. It's possible you've done both and still have dishes and laundry to take care of too.
Regardless of what your day throws at you, we feel you and know that at the end of it, you're longing for comfort, Netflix and maybe a large glass of wine on your modern coffee table. If you're like us, your sofa is a refuge at the end of the day that offers a place to relax and turn off the to-do list running through your head.
For that reason, it's important to find a sofa that not only looks and feels just right but one that speaks to you. If you don't have this kind of relationship with your sofa (and you should), we're here to help.
Just as with a potential love interest, you most likely have a list of qualities you're looking for. Let's discuss some of the factors that might go into choosing your perfect partner.
When it comes to sofas, size does matter. Whether you live in a sprawling suburban home with large rooms and high ceilings or a studio apartment in the city, it's important to think about the scale of your furniture. A sofa should be the largest piece of furniture in your living room and because of that, it will (if we have anything to do with it) make an impact.
Below we've selected sofas for small, large and in-between spaces to give you an idea of what will work in your home. If your space is really small, you might maximize your space with a modern sleeper sofa instead!
Our Favorite Small Sofa
Our Aria Channel Tufted Sofa in a soft velour upholstery is on the smaller side at 64-inches long and perfect for a studio apartment or pre-war bungalow with limited square footage. Although Aria may be little, it certainly makes up for it in the style department. With retro styling and elegant lines, Aria is just what you need to make a big statement, while also fitting just right into any space.
Need a Medium Sized Sofa?
Looking for the perfect companion to your mid-sized home or spacious apartment? Then we've got just the guy for you! Available in a plethora of fabric choices and colors, Bryce is a chameleon of sorts that will fit in almost any moderately-sized space. Coming in at 109-inches in length, Bryce offers ample seating and can be centered in your living room to make it a focal point. Help your home stand out by choosing our Bryce Minimalist Sofa and you won't be disappointed.
The Best Large Sofa
When you've got a large living room, you don't want to clutter it up with too many items just to fill the space. Therefore, you must choose your pieces wisely and we think our Perry Sofa is just what you need. With an impressive measurement of 134-inches, Perry is a man among men.
We picture Perry situated in a chic, modern penthouse or perhaps a luxurious media room, but wherever it is placed, it will certainly command attention. If you're looking for even more seating, give our Perry Sectional a try. PRO TIP: If your room is really large, or open concept, try placing a modern sideboard behind your sofa for added storage!
Most people have a type; a general appearance that they find themselves drawn to. Just the way you might find a quality attractive in a person, you probably can identify what catches your eye when it comes to furniture as well. Luckily we've got lots of cool, modern styles for you to choose from. If you like Contemporary furnishings, Ultra Modern looks or Mid-Century classics, then these picks are sure to grab your attention.
A Classy Contemporary Sofa
So many looks can fall under the umbrella of Contemporary and since we prefer versatile pieces that won't go out of style, we've selected our Cyrus Sofa to share with you. A good looking and well-rounded sofa, Cyrus can be gentle and smooth or refined and stately depending on the fabric you choose. We like Cyrus' clean lines and simple styling that make it a sofa that can adapt to nearly any motif.
An Ultra Modern Sofa
Sleek and sophisticated, our Essex Sofa appears to be all business but has a softer side upon closer inspection. With sharp angles and perfectly positioned steel legs, Essex has got it going on. Perhaps the best part is that the premium leather seat is incredibly supple and inviting, just the way we like it. We like to think of the Essex as a suited businessman that comes home after work to lounge in his t-shirt and joggers. The perfect blend of form and function.
Breathtaking Mid-Century Sofa
The flawless combination of modern and retro styling, our Mid-Century inspired Adelita Sofa offers a look that is current, yet also transcendent. Adelita's polyester-linen blend fabric in a marbled gray color sets the tone for this polished piece and the angled gold legs are what make it truly memorable. We love the updated style of Adelita and think she's a real beauty, but there is more to her than meets the eye. Down-filled cushions and a kiln-dried wood frame ensure that she is more than just a pretty (sur)face.
Are you into blondes, brunettes or redheads? You're likely to have a preference, but when it comes to choosing your sofa color, there is much more that comes into play. You must ask yourself: What color will work with the other pieces in your home? Do I want to choose a neutral shade that I can easily work into my space or do I want my sofa to make a colorful statement? And finally: What do I truly love? Consider these questions when deciding and check out some options below.
Our Favorite Bold Colorful Sofa
Make a splash with a vibrant sofa like our Bardot Velvet Sofa, which comes in plush jewel-toned colors like emerald green, bold blue or flirty pink.

Accentuate Bardot's colorful tones with patterned pillows or tone down the look with more organic colors and designs.
Wanting Soft? Maybe a Pink Sofa, or Sea Blue...
