Aside from the bed, a sofa is one of the first and most basic furniture purchases for the home. As the main piece in a living room, a sofa can accommodate at least two people and can be grouped together with other seats to create a conversational area, which sets a mood of interaction with other people within the space.

Sofas come in a wide variety of styles, shapes, and sizes so there are plenty of options to choose from to match the type, needs, and décor of your home. And because it is a large piece of furniture, a sofa can be a major purchase—some designer sofas cost hundreds of thousands of pesos—as much as a car! 

We've got you covered if you're short on budget, not style. We've rounded up a bunch of couches that can rival any designer sofa, but are pocket-friendly, too. 

BELOW P40,000:

Classic tufted.


Draw inspiration from this old-fashioned tufted velvet sofa and create a medieval-industrial living room. The dark gray upholstery, neat tufting, and intricate nailhead details of this sofa will certainly make this a standout piece especially when set against brick or wooden walls.

Tropical-modern.


Complement your tropical style living area with a sofa that gives off a beach-y charm with a modern touch. Its sandy brown upholstery goes well with cool accent colors such as fresh greens and oceanic blues.

BELOW P30,000:

Versatile gray.


Gray is one of the easiest colors  you can work with—you can pair it with black, white, primaries, neutrals, and even pastels! Having your sofa in this color will benefit you as it can fit any style or even any color palette. Gray ties colors together, connect diverse hues to create a coherent palette. It can also temper a room that is predominantly painted in bright colors (like red, or orange).

Gentleman’s club.


Add masculinity to your style by furnishing a space with a classic, club-style sofa fit for a man cave. Accessorize with teal throw pillows to soften the bold brown color of the seat.

Contemporary Sofa, P25,000, Mandaue Foam

BELOW P20,000:

Contemporary florals.


This flamboyant sectional is the opposite of a plain brown sofa, and can give a room a feminine touch. A big plus: it's a sectional that's less than P20,000!

BELOW P10,000:

Twice the charm.


The sofa bed saves space by performing dual functions in a small home. It gives you the opportunity to entertain guests as well as turn any space into a bed or guest room at night. This sleek number is perfect for studio units, and clocks in at under P10,000.
