I spent years searching for the most comfy sofa, and after my long journey, I feel like I know every couch by heart. If you're on the lookout for a new one, I'm here to help make it easy. While there are thousands of choices to shop online, finding your exact match is a lot easier said than done. My ideal couch had to be the right size, good quality, stylish, and, of course, comfy. To help inspire you to find the right choice for your home, I curated a list of my 16 favorites, including affordable couches, leather sofas, and couches for the best small spaces.

What to Look For When Buying a Couch

While I'd thought virtual furniture shopping might be hard, it turns out that tons of retailers have fast shipping options, easy returns, and affordable prices that just can't be beat. You'll want to narrow in on your needs: do you want a classic three-seater silhouette or a large sectional or a sleeper sofa for those extra guests? Consider who will be using it and the size of your room. There's also the material — do you want performance fabric that's made to be durable, chic velvet, classic leather, or fuzzy bouclé? It can all depend on whether you have kids or pets. Lastly, price is important. Ahead, you can shop options from affordable brands like Amazon and Wayfair, as well as designer names like Lulu and Georgia and Hay. Here's a detailed guide for everything you need to know about buying a couch.

What to Look For in a Quality Sofa That Will Last

There are so many different things to look for when shopping for an investment piece like a sofa. I'd recommend thinking about fabrics, like wool, linen, leather, or velvet, that are traditionally more durable, and bonus points if there's an option for some kind of performance fabric, which will generally withstand more wear and tear. Generally speaking, if a sofa is on the firmer side, it's less prone to sagging, and if there's any kind of memory foam in the sofa, that's a good sign that it will last. Plus, though I don't like playing favorites, there are a couple of brands I completely trust, like West Elm, Albany Park and Maiden Home, that I know make quality, durable pieces.

Keep reading to see the 16 choices I love and would recommend. My personal favorite is the Albany Park Kova Sofa ($2,555, originally $3,155), which is actually an editor favorite, too. Find your match ahead.
