How Many People Comfortably Fit on Your Sofa?

While I'd say that three people can comfortably fit on my sofa, in normal circumstances I prefer to have only one other person to sit on the sofa with me. Unless I'm hosting a party, where space is an issue, I feel more relaxed when there's just one other person cozied up on the other end of my sofa. How about you?

we have my parents' really, really old sectional, which fits like 6-7, sort of squished, but it always happens when we have a lot of people over...we also have a futon that can fit 3-4

4, maybe 5. It's a long couch with attached chaise so it's fairly large.

3 but the other day we squeezed 4 in and it wasn't bad.

Our place is too tiny for a couch. We just have a loveseat which only fits two comfortably.

we have an 8 seater - sectional. Prior to this we had lots of flea market finds that were all 2-3 seaters. I have to admit I'm feeling a bit spoiled ;-)

I have a pair of loveseats, which hold two people per loveseat. (or one large dog and one very squished person----or one very large dog all stretched out)

I couldn't get a real sofa in my door because of the way it's positioned, so I had to settle on 2 big chairs and a loveseat. The loveseat only fits me and my Lucky dog. :)

On the sofa in our formal living room, 3 can fit comfortably, 4 can squish in. The sofa in our family room can fit 6-7 easily because it's a wraparound sofa.

3-4... My couch is like an oversized loveseat I guess? It's only 2 cushions long but they're bigger cushions than normal... My boyfriend & I can lay on it and our toes just reach the other end. I'm thinking of getting something a bit bigger though, maybe a sectional, for when we have company :)

6-7!! We have a very long living room, so we just got our new couch. Three cushion sofa W/ and attached chase.. making it 4 cushions long. My fiance and I can both lay down at the same time & watch a movie, and now we have plenty of seating for guests!
