A sofa is one of the most important pieces in one’s house. It serves as a seat for you and your guests, a bed, or even as a dining banquette. So if you’re just starting out and all you have at home are a mattress and some apple crates, then you must shell out that last bit of holiday bonus to invest in a good sofa. Here are some value-for-money picks that won’t break the bank:

Feminine Sectional


This lovely number is one of the most affordable sectional sofas we’ve seen, and it’s compact enough to tuck into a condo unit (the dimensions are 178cm wide x 78cm deep).

We call this the cool kid on the block, because it has this no-nonsense, modern vibe. The best part is that it transforms into a bed at the flick of your wrist.

This is your sofa bed wild card—it looks like it came out of a military bunker—but it has a utilitarian charm to it, something a college kid in Berlin would pick out.

This is a sofa that has three good things going for it. One: the slim silhouette for tiny condos. Two: the tufted grid detailing. Three: the affordable price!
