1. An elegant sectional sofa that looks incredibly expensive but is less than $500. The stained wood legs give it an extra luxurious look.

Promising review: "Awesome couch for a great price! I was looking for a new couch to replace my old droopy one that was on its last legs without breaking the bank. I pulled the trigger on this couch because I really liked the color, and honestly I’m impressed. Assembly was simple and didn’t take longer than 20 minutes. Instructions were clear and the necessary tools were shipped along with the couch. My living room is a bit narrow, and couch fits perfectly. The couch is sturdy but not overly heavy. The cushions are firm, and great for my back. Is it the same quality as a sectional from Crate & Barrel? No. But for the price, you can’t get a better deal. 10 out of 10, would buy with my limited budget again. :)" — Pssss

2. A tufted and studded convertible sectional with an ottoman that turns any part of the couch into a chaise. ~Ah, high-life living.~

Promising review: "BUY IT! Better than I expected! I was worried it wasn’t going to be comfortable but I can nap on this couch just fine. I put the entire couch together on my own. I recommend watching the instructional video. Wonderful customer service! I was sent the wrong ottoman and they immediately corrected the mistake and sent the correct one hassle-free! I highly recommend this couch!" — Sable

3. A sleeper sofa — the perfect combo between functional and luxury you'll be patting yourself on the back for buying. It has great support but isn't too firm where a rest or night's sleep on it would be uncomfortable.

Promising review: "Very firm but high quality! I bought this for my apartment I’m at while working in another state. My primary reason for purchasing was so that there would be an additional place for family to sleep while they were visiting. The couch it self is VERY firm while the back cushions are plush and soft. However, where this sofa shines is when it’s pulled out into a bed. It’s very comfortable for guests and not at all like a traditional soft futon or pull out mattress. My 14yr old daughter put this together by herself while I was putting together other furniture. Keep an eye on price because It seems to jump around a bit - but I’m very happy with it!Edit 11/7/2021I see some reviews mention the bed can fall over.Note there are feet in a zipper you MUST extend when the sofa is in the sleeper position. These feet create a point where the sleeper sofa contacts the ground on all corners and will make it so the bed cannot tip." — Brian

6. Listen, we all want something we can sprawl out on and sink into and this couch is the answer. This modern sofa is large enough to fit you and five others at the same time so you can all live your best couch potato life. Reviewers note that this is great for families!

Promising review: "Amazing for the price It's a really good deal for the price. It is far more comfortable than an Ikea couch. It really has some bounce to it when you sit down.I would say it's perfect, but there are 3 things I want to point out to potential buyers:1- the back of the couch is short. I find myself putting a pillow behind my head or just slouching down when I want to lean my head back. It's not a downside, it's just how this style of couch is and it shouldn't be overlooked.2- the arms are just very squishy plush pillows. They offer no support, so you will want to buy firm throw pillows if you plan to lay on the couch and want to prop your head up a little bit or if you like arm rests.3- some of the cushions have velcro to keep them in place, but I still find but the seat and back cushions move around and need to be pushed back into place a couple times a week. It doesn't bother me, but I notice it.That's all. Overalls I'm very happy that I got this for around $750 and it came shipped for free in just a couple days. Very impressed. I will say though, I looked at couches at a local discount furniture place that cost $1300 or so, and those couches were worlds better than this one. Don't buy this thinking it's going to be like a couch from Ashley Or some other furniture store, because it's not. But I will again say that it is a noticeably better quality and comfort than an Ikea couch. So I hope that gives you a good perspective. For $750, this is probably the best you can get." — Nora

7. A microfiber sofa with button tufted cushions and square wooden feet that's a classic style you won't have to worry about hating in a few years. Some sofas are "trendy" for the time being, but this sofa you'll want to lounge on for years to come. (Psst — reviewers say these cushions run on the firmer side if you prefer that)!

Promising review: "So far, so good! Couch arrived today, one day late. I was able to set it up by myself and I look forward to surprise my boyfriend when he gets home from work!So far it seems like a great couch for the price. Soft, sturdy, comfortable. Easy to set up. Took me about ten minutes, would have taken 3 minutes with two people. I was hesitant to buy this couch due to the amount of negative reviews. So far I am very satisfied, but we’ll see. Might post an update in a few weeks if anything negative happens.Update: have had this couch for a year. It’s not super comfortable, it’s very narrow, I have trouble curling up comfortably on it. Good for movie nights with friends you don’t like very much." — Samantha Marshall

8. A Novogratz convertible sectional futon is perfect if you plan to have a lot of guests over, and don't want to bother with an air mattress. This piece of furniture converts into a sleeper sofa, so your guests can sit and sleep in the same place.

Promising review: "Great deal for a $200 futon! I purchased this for my home office/guest bedroom. I wanted to get rid of the huge bed in our guest room and replace it with a futon for guests and a sitting space for my clients.OK -- a few things. The price is so affordable because the fabric isn't the greatest (and not the worst) and the fabric is stapled on and not neatly. BUT you can't even see it because it is tacked on the bottom of the sofa. I hope no one spends their time looking at the bottom of a sofa. Anywho, the futon is definitely very firm, but I don't find it to be uncomfortable. If you like, you can add a foam mattress if you're having guests or if you are sleeping on it frequently. I ordered the pink and for the most part it is a blush pink, but it can look mauve in certain light. It looked mauve under my stair's recessed lighting but pink under my office's floor lamp.Oh, be sure to pull out the reinforcements if two people sleep on it. I tested both sides out to see if 2 people could fit on it, and I almost fell off because the weight wasn't evenly distributed. The legs are hidden in a compartment behind the pillows. BTW, two slim people could fit, but this is definitely made for one person.My husband put the futon up in about 45 minutes; it came with tools, but my husband did use some of his own for a better grip then those cheap tools that come with things that need to be assembled. I helped only on one section so he didn't have to hold it alone, but it can be assembled with one person. The box that it arrived in is pretty large, but it's amazing how well this futon is folded up in the box. Don't overlook the instructions. You have to open the futon and the instructions will fall out.Look, if you're looking for a premium futon for $200 then don't do it. But, if you understand how much fabric costs and how expensive good furniture really costs, then you'll find this futon to be a good deal. I think it's cute and a good value. I wish I had a reason to buy the other colors. :) Overall, I think it's an ingenious concept and look for the price." — LChambers81
