Is it time for a new sofa? Let’s begin by asking a few simple questions: Are you using three or more blankets to cover sections mauled by the cat? Was it passed down to you by an ex who got it from their ex who inherited it from the Dumpster? Are the pillows so lumpy that sitting on them inflames your sciatica nerve? Does it look like something out of Alexis Colby’s living room? (Okay, that’s kind of fabulous actually.) Did that one babysitter let your kids draw on it with a Sharpie? Have you noticed it’s giving you a strange, itchy rash (yikes!)?
If you answered yes to one or more of the above (that last one especially) then YES it is definitely time for a new couch!
But where to begin? It could literally take days to scroll through the Internet to find the perfect one, and who has time to go shopping live and in person anymore? Well, I just happen to be in the market for a new sofa myself and I’ve done the scrolling for you. So here you have it, 14 amazing sofas in styles to suit all tastes and temperaments. Best of all they wont break the bank. Now you can invite your friends over again!
