It comes in a handful of colors and configurations, so you can get the perfect one for your space.
Allform is another brand that makes custom sofas in a wide variety of choices that you can configure based on your needs. The 3-Seat Sofa With Chaise ($2,245, originally $2,806) is a great versatile choice because you can move the chaise to either side, making it easy if you move your furniture around a lot. It comes in seven fabrics and two leathers, and you have 100 days to try it.

The laid-back and cozy Like Butter Standard Sofa ($4,016, originally $5,020) has a sink-in feel to it that's so comfortable. It features a lower seat height and deep cushions, which allow for a more lounge-like position. You can customize it in a ton of different fabrics, colors, and even configurations.
Burrow makes seriously great modular couches that you can configure to your liking. The brand is also committed to being more sustainable. Its sturdy frames are built with sustainably sourced hardwoods, and the cushions are all CertiPUR-US certified to be free of ozone depleters, formaldehyde, heavy metals, flame retardants, and other harmful things found in noncertified cushions. We love the Range 4-Piece Open Sectional Double Lounger With Table ($1,730) because its cool design can fit into any space, and it also comes with a side table.
Castlery is all about making pieces that are modern and practical and won't cost you a fortune, and who doesn't love that? The brand has a number of great finds, including this editor pick, but we're currently loving this Jonathan Chaise Sectional Sofa ($2,599). The low-profile silhouette is so cool, and you can get it with the matching ottoman.
Floyd makes seriously impressive modular, modern, and functional designs we just can't get over. If you love those low-profile designer sofas all over Instagram, here's a great affordable option. The cool, cozy Sectional Three-Seater Sofa With Chaise ($2,455+) comes in a number of sizes, shapes, and color choices. We love the option with a comfortable chaise lounge — it's perfect for sitting back and watching a movie.
Hay is the perfect shopping destination for anyone who loves Scandinavian decor. The store has a great selection of sofas that rival designer pieces. This stylish and comfortable Mags Soft Low Sectional ($3,495-$8,495) is the perfect floor sofa. Customers love its plush cushions, and so will you.
Inside Weather's mission is all about making furniture-buying easy and simple. Our current favorite is the Modular Bondi 3-Seater Sofa ($2,550, originally $4,845). It's made with a 100-percent polyester fabric that's woven with a tight stitch, so it won't easily snag or frag. This long-lasting choice both looks good and will last.
Joybird is committed to providing its factory workers a fair-trade environment, offering competitive wages and benefits. In addition to making sure its workers are happy creating these handcrafted pieces, it also gives back to the planet. For every sale, the brand helps to fund reforestation and restoration programs in North America through the One Tree Planted charity. Joybird sells a ton of great sofas, but our current favorite is the Lewis Grand Sofa ($1,788+, originally $2,751+). It looks soft, comfy, and, of course, stylish.
Lulu and Georgia
Lulu and Georgia is one of our favorite destinations that sells designer looks and quality finds you will just adore. The brand offers high-quality pieces that are great additions to your home. Want a velvet piece that'll last? Then look no further than the Fabienne Sofa ($3,998). The vintage look and pretty green color are the perfect ways to make a statement. We especially love the unique legs that have wheels, making it easy to move around.
Maiden Home features handcrafted pieces that are made to order, so the brand doesn't have wasteful excess pieces lying around. The fabrics and woods are responsibly sourced and crafted with nontoxic materials. The tufted back and wood legs of The Ludlow ($2,875) make it feel elevated and different. You can customize it in a handful of fabrics, including tweed, leather, and bouclé. The legs come in four different wood finishes as well.
Medley makes handcrafted furniture without harmful chemicals or fire retardants. Plus, in partnership with the National Forest Foundation, the brand plants three trees for every one used to build one of its designs. The Gio Sofa ($1,841) is one of our favorites. The green shade is so pretty, and we adore the wood legs.
