Top 5 Small Sofas for Small Spaces

Whether it’s a student room, a studio flat, or just a house or apartment with a small living room, many people live in smaller homes these days and it can be frustrating finding furniture that is beautiful and comfortable but will fit into these smaller spaces.

It’s well worth hunting for more compact sofas though, rather than putting up with either a sofa that is far too large, or doing without altogether. A compact sofa gives you more seating options and somewhere to sit in comfort, but doesn’t crowd the space and look oversized in a small room. In this blog post we highlight five of the best sofas you can find for fitting into smaller spaces.

59th Street – Content by Conran

An elegant sofa in a clean timeless design, the 59th Street stands on rounded chrome ski-style legs which makes it appear to float above the floor. This works perfectly in smaller spaces by reducing the profile of the sofa and making it appear to take up less space.

Appearances aside, the 59th street is also actually a surprisingly compact sofa. At only 81cm deep, and just 170cm wide for the two seat version, it takes up relatively little room for such a comfortable, generous design.

Even better, for accessing small flats and getting up narrow staircases, the 59th Street has detachable arms and feet and can be delivered dismantled.

Harris Tweed Glencoe

The aptly named Harris Tweed Glencoe Petite sofa is a cosy sofa just 155cm wide, neatly bridging the gap between a love seat and a typical two-seat sofa, and is perfectly spacious for two people, or three at a squeeze.

Visually, its single-cushion seat design and low-profile armrests make it look compact and tidy, making it a great choice for a smaller room, or even to provide extra seating in an unusual space like a hallway or landing.

Chloe Compact Sofa Bed

The Chloe sofa bed isn’t just a hugely space-efficient sofa although, with no armrests and a low-profile back it certainly provides the maximum amount of seating for its 200cm width. No, it’s also one of the most compact sofa-beds available. Its unusual design uses the width of the sofa as the length of the bed, meaning that it barely takes up any additional space when unfolded. This makes it perfect for small rooms where it could be difficult to find floor space to unfold a conventional sofa bed, or simply for rooms with a lot of other furniture that would be difficult to move out of the way.

With the adjustable back folding down, the Chloe also gives the option for a recliner-type arrangement, making it an incredible versatile and flexible option that is perfect for student rooms or bedsits, where it can be used for sleeping, sitting, or lying back and watching television, and quickly adjusted between positions with minimal effort.

Durham

A more traditional and classic design with hand-carved legs, a buttoned back, and rolled arm-rests, the Durham is just 160cm wide and 83 cm deep, making it one of the smallest sofas in this list.

Available in a wide range of fabrics from chenille to crushed velvet, the Durham is versatile and adaptable, working just as well in a very traditional home as it would in a loft apartment or a modern space. And, if space allows, you can match it with its footstool, for a bit of extra comfort.

Charnwood Love Seat

The Charnwood, a low-profile, comfy sofa with elements of modern and traditional designs carefully blended together, comes in some enormous sizes perfect for the largest living rooms. But it also comes in a love-seat just 140cm wide, giving you all of the style and comfort of this elegant design but in a size that can work in the smallest spaces.

The Charnwood works particularly well in velvet and is available in a whole range of colours and styles including hard-wearing and stain-resistant velvets that are ideal for a family home or student flat.
