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:

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.

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).

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.

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!
