Finding the best sofa for your home can be a difficult decision. After all, a sofa needs to fulfil a lot of criteria, including suiting your decor, budget, and, most importantly, providing a place to relax and get comfortable. And with even the most affordable sofas still proving a hefty investment, it's a purchase we all want to get right.

Whilst nothing can beat going to test out a sofa for yourself – after all, one person's 'too soft' can be another person's 'just right' – you can easily lose multiple weekends traipsing around the shops sitting on sofa after sofa. That's why Ideal Home's experts are here to help.

Our review team has walked multiple miles around multiple sofa showrooms to test out hundreds of sofas in person, toning our glutes with sit-test after sit-test to find the most comfortable sofas from John Lewis, Habitat, Sofa.com, and many more. We've also read multiple reviews from existing owners to assess each sofa's longevity, grilled furniture experts on build quality, and considered upholstery choice, lead times, and, of course, pricing, to reach a verdict on which are the best sofas to invest in.

So whether you're looking for a two or three-seater sofa, a chaise for putting your feet up, a multifunctional sofa bed that enables you to offer guests overnight sleeping space (find more of those in our guide to the best sofa beds), a modular sofa that comes in sections so you can configure your own seating layout, or a spacious corner sofa, we've rounded up the best options below.

May be too upright for some

According to online reviews, the Draper sofa has some of the best owner satisfaction levels of all John Lewis & Partners' sofa designs, and, after visiting several branches to test out the brand's full seating collection, we're inclined to agree that it's one of the brand's top picks.

Comfort-wise the sofa frame offers that rare combination of a high-backed design that will suit those who prefer to sit upright paired with a deep seat that offers space for those who prefer to curl up and lounge. The foam and fibre seat cushion adds some welcome squish-factor whilst maintaining its shape well, plus, opting for the single bench-style cushion design means the larger widths can happily seat three people without anyone getting left sitting in the gap.

If you want to get even more comfortable, then this model is also available with an unobtrusive and easy-to-operate footrest so you can really recline in style.

The modern design has a nod to a classic Chesterfield with its buttoned cushion detail and will blend easily into a broad range of interiors helped by the 90+ upholstery options. It's also available in a good range of sizes, including a two, three and four-seater, plus a chaise sofa option, and with prices starting from £1449, plus delivery in just a week if you opt for a more restricted upholstery choice, the design manages to tick a lot of boxes at a good price.

2. Habitat Julien Sofa

A good all-rounder at a very affordable price point

Specifications

Sizes available: W180 / W220cm
Seat height: 40cm
Seat depth: 62cm
Seat cushions: foam and fibre
Back cushions: foam
Upholstery options: 6
Matching furniture: Armchair

Reasons to buy

+
One of the most affordable sofas we've come across at this level of style and comfort
+
Velvet upholstery options feel good quality and offer rich colours
+
Great seat depth, perfect for sitting or lounging, with good comfort levels

Reasons to avoid

-
Limited size options
-
Limited upholstery options
-
Low seat may not be for everyone
-
Pretty deep, so not ideal for a small space

Comfortable and stylish, there's a lot to like about Habitat's Julien sofa, and at just £595 for the 180cm wide two-seater or £695 for the 220cm wide three-seater, if you're looking for an affordable contemporary sofa then this option ranks high in our books.

Of course, at this price point you can't expect everything, so there are some compromises to be made. Mainly the limited upholstery options (you're going to need to like velvet), plus the shortage of width options compared to other sofa models on this list. The fixed seat cushions also mean you can't just flip over a cushion if a spillage occurs, and the low-to-the-ground frame with 40cm seat height may not be for everyone. 

So why does the Julien still score so highly with us? Well, for the price, this is one comfortable sofa. The fixed fibre-wrapped foam seats are on the slightly firmer side but the model we tested still had a good amount of squish, and we loved the seat depth, which with the foam-filled seat cushions offering good comfort and support was perfect for sitting or curling up on. Plus the low armrests are well-padded and the perfect head height for naps.

And, although the upholstery options are limited, the velvets are amongst some of the nicest we've sampled, with a lustre that feels a lot more luxe than most sofas of this price-point can muster and deep rich shades in some great colourways. Plus, although the coordinating range isn't extensive (there's no matching ottoman available to turn this sofa into a chaise sadly), the matching armchair is a great buy too.

Best quick delivery sofa

3. Swyft Model 03 Sofa

A versatile modular sofa with a super short lead time

Specifications

Sizes available: modular units from W70cm
Seat height: 45cm
Seat depth: 69cm
Seat cushions: foam and fibre
Back cushions: foam and fibre
Upholstery options: 8
Matching furniture: footstool

Reasons to buy

+
Modular units mean unlimited configuration options
+
Super fast delivery options
+
Sofa-in-a-box flatpack design useful for rooms with tricky access

Can be easily dismantled and rebuilt if you move home

Reasons to avoid

An investment
-
Low seat and backrest
-
Bulky with deep seats so not for small rooms
-
Limited upholstery options

A modular sofa is the ultimate versatile seating solution, with individual seating sections allowing you to configure a bespoke sofa layout to best suit your room. You can add, subtract or rearrange the modules if you want to transfer the sofa to a different room or move home, and invest in more sections as and when budget allows.

Swyft's Model 03 is a contemporary modular sofa-in-a box that also offers some jaw-dropping delivery times. Lead times are under one week, and can be as short as 24 hours dependent on stock – a rarity in the world of sofas where lead times can often run to several months.

The modular units don't come cheap, and you're going to need a modern home and quite a bit of space to suit this contemporary design, but we love its boxy shape. It works particularly well in an open-plan layout, where the low-to-the-ground design can be used to zone and anchor a spacious room. Upholstery options are also limited, but all are versatile and on-trend shades.

And, although the low seats and backrest won't be for everyone – you're going to need to prefer lounging to sitting upright to be comfortable on this design – if you're looking for a minimalist sofa with designer looks (without the matching price tag) then this quick-delivery, super-versatile sofa is a winner.

Retro-inspired design won't be for everyone

The Barbican collection is one of John Lewis & Partners bestselling sofa ranges, and with its on-trend mid-Century-modern meets Scandinavian-cool good looks, it's easy to see why. 

Looks aside, sitting down on this sofa collection doesn't disappoint either with fibre-wrapped foam seat cushions delivering some welcome squish-factor and sink-in-ability combined with a low maintenance fill that keeps its shape and doesn't need plumping. The back cushions are a slightly firmer fibre construction that offers good support and a comfortable angle to recline.

The Barbican comes in a whole host of sofa sizes along with a range of coordinating footstools and armchairs, including small and medium-sized two-seater, three-seater, four-seater and a variety of relatively affordable chaise and corner configurations. All are useful options for a small to mid-sized living room as the sofa's curved frame, slim armrests and high legs mean it looks and feels a lot more compact than many comparable options. That means spacious seating without adding visual 'bulk' to the room or taking up excess floorspace.

There are also over 100 upholstery options on offer, including a good range of leathers, plus, a choice of either light oak or dark wood leg finish to tailor the overall look to your tastes.

Best large sofa

5. Habitat Hendricks Sofa

An affordable large sofa with plenty of room to stretch out

Specifications

Sizes available: W180 / W200 / W240 / chaise / corner
Seat height: 37cm
Seat depth: 65cm
Seat cushions: feather and fibre filling
Back cushions: feather and fibre filling
Upholstery options: 12
Matching furniture: armchair

Reasons to buy

+
One of the most affordable large sofas we've come across at this level of style and comfort
+
Velvet upholstery options feel good quality and offer rich colours
+
Great seat depth, perfect for sitting or lounging
+
Comfortable seat and back cushions with a good amount of squish for the price
+

If you have the space to work with then you're unlikely to regret opting for more sofa to stretch out on, especially if you have multiple housemates, family, or friends to seat comfortably. A large sofa generally means (a lot) more expense though, which is probably why the great value Kendrick sofa is one of Habitat's most popular designs, offering spacious seating at a very affordable price point compared to other sofas of this size.

There are generously proportioned two, three, and four-seater sofa options, plus a three or four-seater chaise and two corner sofa configurations to choose from, all in Habitat's luxe-look velvet upholstery. And while the colour choices may be limited, all are great shades that lend statement style to this contemporary design. 

What's more, we loved the comfort levels on all the models we tested. The seat is deep, especially if you're on the shorter side, but we found it very comfortable for sitting or lounging, with comfortable seat cushions that have a nice amount of sink, and soft yet supportive back cushions. The padded armrests are also super comfortable, with the low arms a great height for resting your head for a nap.

Although the back may be a little low in height for some, this low profile design also works especially well in an open plan room where it won't interrupt the flow from one zone to another, delivering a designer look without the designer price tag.

Best classic sofa

6. The Lounge Co. Bronwyn Sofa

A classic yet comfortable sofa that's perfect for a period property

Specifications

Sizes available: W186 / W205 / W235cm
Seat height: 51cm
Seat depth: 64cm
Seat cushions: fibre or foam
Back cushions: feather and fibre
Upholstery options: 16
Matching furniture: footstool, armchair, snuggler

Reasons to buy

+
Comfortable with plenty of squish-factor
+
Great seat depth for curling up or relaxed lounging
+
Choice of foam or fibre seat cushions
+
Choice of scatter or classic-style back cushions
+
Matching furniture available

Reasons to avoid

Limited upholstery options

Elegant scroll arms, turned wooden feet, and generous seat and back cushions upholstered in some luxe-look velvets give the Bronwyn sofa a classic and opulent feel – without the luxe price tag.

And while the upholstery options may be somewhat limited compared to other options, with just 16 fabrics to choose from, this sofa offers some great alternative ways to tailor the seating to your tastes.

You can style the settee with multiple scatter back cushions or classic flat-backed cushions, and you have the option to tailor the sitting experience by opting for foam or fibre-filled seat cushions. The foam padding offers a firmer sit but will hold its shape well for a smarter look, whilst fibre delivers a more squishy sink-in feel, but one that will require a little more plumping to keep its shape. On top of that, there are three leg colours to choose from, and the option of a two, three, or four-seater frame width.

If you're after a more traditional sofa shape for a period property, or want to add some classic character to a new build, then we think this is a great option to consider.

Best small sofa

7. Sofa.com Holly Sofa

A compact sofa that's perfect for small spaces

Specifications

Sizes available: W155 / W185 / W215 / W288cm / chaise / corner
Seat height: 50cm
Seat depth: 54cm
Seat cushions: reversible feather-wrapped foam
Back cushions: reversible feather fill
Upholstery options: 70+
Matching furniture: amchair & footstool

Reasons to buy

+
Great value
+
Compact, high-legged design will make a small room feel more spacious
+
Wide range of sofa widths and configurations, including some useful compact options
+
Comfortable with just the right mix of squish and support
+
Good range of upholstery options
+
Matching furniture available

Reasons to avoid

-
Armrests may be a little high and thin for some
-
The feathers will rule it out for some

If you're looking to furnish a small living room, then the Holly sofa is well worth having on your radar. The compact design is available in a versatile range of size options including the smallest 155cm width two-seater, and a very useful two-and-a-half-seater option. There's also a space-saving extra-small corner sofa configuration that will add extra seating whilst maintaining a small footprint. 

In fact, everything about the Holly design has small-scale living in mind, from the stylish high-legged design that lifts the sofa frame clear of the floor to add visual spaciousness, to the space-saving thinner armrests and not-too-deep-or-too-shallow seat depth. Although, if sofa size isn't an issue, then there are also plenty of larger options to choose from; from four-seater through to multiple chaise and corner configurations. There's also a matching armchair and upholstered footstool.

Space-saving tricks aside, this is also both a stylish and comfortable sofa at a great price point. There are 70+ upholstery options on offer, including some brilliant shades of velvet, feather-wrapped foam seat cushions, feather back cushions, and a high-backed frame that delivers just the right mix of squish and support.

In our opinion, this sofa also offers just the right mix of squish and support. The feather-wrapped foam seat cushions are just deep enough to curl up on, and if you prefer to sit upright then the soft-yet-firm back cushions have your back. And it's not just the cushions doing the support work either, the high frame means you can lean back securely without the cushions gradually deflating like many models. We also like the high armrests which means there is back support if you like to sit sideways with your feet up too (although the armrest height does make reaching for the coffee table a little harder).

If you want a multifunctional sofa that can provide extra sleeping space for hosting guests, then, although it's an investment, this sofa bed achieves the rare mix of being comfortable enough to use as your everyday seating as well as providing overnight guests with a decent night's sleep.

There are four sofa widths available, each of which feature a single roll-out action mechanism that makes the transformation from sofa to pull-out bed a simple affair. The roll-out action also means this sofa bed is able to offer a longer mattress than most, with a 190cm length sleeping area. And, at 12cm deep, the mattress is one of the deepest we've come across with the option of pocket spring or memory foam construction for your preferred comfort. 

You can also tailor the construction of the seat cushions, with options of fibre-wrapped foam or feather-wrapped foam for low-maintenance squish-factor. And, there are a fantastic 175+ upholstery options to choose from.

Plus, if a narrow hallway, tight corners, or tricky stairs are an issue, this sofa bed can be delivered flat-packed and built by the delivery team in situ; a real boon for those with awkward access.

Limited upholstery options

A Chesterfield sofa, with that distinctive button-back detailing, is a classic sofa design that dates back hundreds of years, and it can make a great choice for a period property or a more modern room where you want to inject a little character. However, based on our testing, finding a Chesterfield sofa that's comfortable enough for anything other than a five minute sit down, and one that doesn't break the bank, seems to be a tall order. 

Furniture Village's Rene sofa is therefore a sight for sore eyes and weary legs. A design that blends a contemporary frame with that classic buttoned detail, both sizes of two-seater and the generous three-seater option are reasonable price points and, even better, often reduced in Furniture Village's regular sales.

Upholstery options are a little limited, with four velvet options and a larger selection of contemporary leathers, but the those velvets are impressive in the flesh, and look more expensive than their price tag might suggest with a subtle sheen that highlights the sculptural buttoned detailing.

And, the Rene is comfortable to sit on, with a mix of pocket springs and fibre padding to add both bounce and comfort to the seat, and foam back and arm rests for support. Whilst the nature of the design means a Chesterfield sofa is going to be a more upright seating expereince, this is definitely the most comfortable version we've come across, and the generous seat depth also means there's room for a few scatter cushions if you wish – something of a rarity with most Chesterfield sofas that tend to have quite narrow seat depths.

Reasons to avoid

-
Foam cushions make for a less squishy seat than feather or fibre mixes
-
Limited upholstery options
-
No corner option

We may be slightly biased, but it's hard not to be impressed by this affordable sofa that was designed by the Ideal Home team in collaboration with ScS. 

Mixing retro design with modern styling, the contemporary sofa is available in two-seater, three-seater, and four-seater options, with a matching armchair, twister, and swivel chair, plus coordinating footstools available. 

The high-legged frame is designed to make a smaller room feel more spacious, whilst those flared, lozenge-shaped arms will create a focal point in either a modern Scandi or mid-Century modern-inspired interior.

In line with its affordable price tag, the Fraser sofa's seat and back cushions are filled with foam – that means a little less squish than a feather or fibre mix, but still a supportive sit – and upholstery options are more limited, but the six carefully chosen shades offer three great shades of grey, plus forest green, amber, and teal blue for injecting a pop of colour into your living room.

Designed to offer style on a budget, we think this sofa strikes a great balance between good looks and good price – especially if you can time your purchase with one of ScS's regular sales.

Best modular sofa

11. IKEA Soderhamn Sofa

An affordable modular sofa that offers spacious seating for less

Specifications

Sizes available: Pretty much unlimited
Seat height: 39cm
Seat depth: 70cm
Seat cushions: Fixed fibre
Back cushions: Reversible fibre
Upholstery options: 8
Matching furniture: No

Reasons to buy

+
Very affordable, especially for a chaise or corner configuration
+
Modular design enables a variety of configurations
+
Short lead times
+
Flatpack design useful for rooms with tricky access
+
Lots of room for extra cushions

Reasons to avoid

-
Limited upholstery options as standard
-
Low seat may not be for everyone
-
Very deep, so not ideal for a small space
-
Not much back support
-
Seat cushions are fixed in place, so no flipping one over if you have a spill
-
You'll need to build it yourself, including adding the seat covers

IKEA's Soderhamn sofa is all over Instagram for a reason, and that's because it delivers a cool and contemporary look at a very affordable price point. 

The modular flat-packed design is also brilliant for homes that have awkward access as it can be built in situ, and the sectional units offer a wide scope to create the configuration that works best for your home, plus it can easily be reconfigured to suit a new interior if you move home.

We were also far more impressed by its comfort levels than we expected to be from its admittedly pretty thin seat cushions, mainly due to the mesh seat frame that allows for a little sink and makes the sitting experience gentler than expected. Those seats are deep, and very low though, so the style won't be for everyone, but if you don't mind your feet not touching the floor then the loose lumbar cushions make for a relaxed yet comfortable reclining position.

The standard upholstery options are limited, although IKEA's replacement covers are a brilliant option for families and anyone who wants to extend their sofas lifespan beyond the inevitable spillages. If you want to switch things up a little more, then Stockholm-based Bemz has built an entire brand offering covers to restyle IKEA's most popular sofa designs, with over 100 upholstery choices available for the Soderhamn, plus a great range of legs to swap out the default chrome the sofa comes with.

Limited upholstery options

A leather sofa can be great a choice for busy homes, with the hardwearing nature of the upholstery particularly useful if you know your sofa is going to get a lot of wear and tear from kids or pets. However, a high quality leather sofa is also a significant investment, with leather being one of the most expensive upholstery fabrics you can choose. A decent leather sofa can easily cost upwards of £3000, which is why we're so impressed by John Lewis' Halo Groucho leather sofa. It's not cheap, but it is reasonably priced.

There are only three colour options, but all are great muted shades that look and feel far more expensive than their mid-range price tag might suggest. There's none of the cheap and shiny-looking leather or harsh colourways that can plague leather sofas of a lower price point.

Another win is that the model we tested was extremely comfortable. As leather is such a thick material, a leather sofa will generally feel a lot firmer to sit on than a sofa upholstered in fabric, and many of the leather sofas we tested in this price bracket were very, very, firm indeed. In contrast, the Groucho's leather upholstery is supple and feels great to the touch. The seat cushions combine the sink-in squishy comfort of fibre mixed with the resilience of foam (meaning they don't constantly need plumping to keep their shape), and the fibre-filled back cushions allow you to lounge back and get comfy, as opposed to many leather sofas which are much more upright affairs where we felt like we were perching in a waiting room.

It's a shame the cushions are all fixed rather than being removable, and we did find the back cushions deflated a little under our weight so you end up reclining a bit, plus the backrest may be a bit low for some. However, if you're a lounger, you'll likely love the feel. Plus, the cushioned armrests are super comfy and mean you can also sit sideways with your feet up.

Its 5-star reviews suggest most customers are happy with their purchase, although some do note its longevity doesn't compare to a leather sofa twice its price. However, if you're looking for an entry-level leather sofa we think it's an option well worth considering. If you have more budget to invest, then Heal's Matera leather sofa would be our alternative choice.

How to choose the perfect sofa

The best sofa for your home will depend on a range of factors, not least the size of your living room, your lifestyle, and of course, your budget. So what are the key things to consider when shopping for your dream couch?
