The sofa is one of the most used pieces at home. Just think about it: it's where we sit or sleep after a long day. It is the special spot where guests can get comfy when they visit. Given these reasons, it's only fitting that we invest in a quality and sturdy sofa!

If you're thinking of replacing your worn-out piece, here are five picks worth considering:

A two-seater sofa may seem like an ideal choice if you live in a studio or compact unit. Choose a neutral-colored piece and liven it up with colorful pillows and a throw.
