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:

P40,000 AND BELOW

Fully Upholstered Plushness


An upholstered frame, loose seat and back cushions, arm bolsters, pillows, and all-around cushiness make this a luxurious but compact seat.

Scandinavian Cool


The slim legs and organic shape give it a crisp, Scandinavian vibe, the tufted diamond detail on the back gives it a hip and trendy touch.

P30,000 AND BELOW

Mad Men Vibe


Vienna reminds us of those sophisticated, midcentury modern sofas you’d see in your dad’s sosyal office lounge, only better—you tip the backrests down, and it’s a sofa bed!

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).

Slim and Sleek


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.

Rugged Functionality


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.

Space-saving Silhouette


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!
