The sofa sure has come a long way from its origins as a stone box built around a hearth that served as a place for an honored guest. Today, the modern sofa comes in so many endless varieties (you can even buy perfectly good couches that come in a box!) that choosing one can drive you literally bonkers.
Here’s a solution: If space isn’t a consideration, why not just go big? The benefits: one, it will virtually eliminate the need to purchase other furniture thereby saving you some money; and, second, it will mean no more fights about who gets the couch for an afternoon nap (the family pet will be really happy about this one).
We’ve assembled a slew of oversized sofas that will hit your comfort zone and then some. And the best part is you don’t have to compromise on style one bit.
Eden Stationary Sofa
Shy of 10-feet wide and with a 62-inch chaise, this sofa is literally so massive you might need to find yourself a loft to go along with it. It’s a good thing it comes in pieces otherwise you wouldn’t be able to get it through the door.
Best for: Impressing your TriBeCa neighbors
Cecilia Velvet Sectional Sofa
Luxe and polished with glam finishing, but still plush enough for an all-day Netflix binge, this sofa is a comfort no-brainer. And it comes in a nice variety of colors.
Best For: Feeling glam but not stiff
Chelsea Modular Sofa
There are so many individual components to this sofa you can practically spell out your name with it, but we like it best assembled as an oversized relaxation pit. The only downside is figuring out how to get out.
