When I moved into my new apartment last December, the number one thing on my mind was finding the perfect couch. Sure, finding a bed and somewhere I could physically sleep was important, but a couch? That was a statement piece I was excited to start searching for. I tested a few in person, but I couldn't find exactly the right piece. I knew I wanted something white or cream, something comfortable but firm, and of course something that would last me for years to come. I had heard great things about Castlery couches from my coworkers, and when I saw the Castlery Hamilton Sofa ($1,899), I immediately fell in love.
What I Like About the Castlery Hamilton Sofa
Initially, I was nervous about purchasing a couch online that I had never tested in person, but this couch has a solid five stars on the brand's website, and I had seen plenty of reviews on TikTok that said it was extremely comfortable. When it arrived at my apartment, not only was it easy to get situated all on my own, but when I finally sat down to try it out for myself, I was so comfortable that I didn't want to get up. I have a bad back, but the cushions are firm enough to keep everything aligned while also making me feel like I'm wrapped up in a warm cocoon.
And while I fell in love with the look of the couch through a screen, the design is even more beautiful in person — it's minimal, sleek, and modern, but it's versatile enough that I think it would look good paired with any design aesthetic, from boho to contemporary. It completely changed the look of my space, and it's the first place people head to sit whenever they come over. The seats are deep and can comfortably seat three people, and it also comes with two square accent pillows that pair perfectly with the couch.
The couch comes in two colors: brilliant white and smoke gray. I opted for the white color, which looks a little more creamy in person. Although I've been careful around it, I did spill on it a few days after I got it — whoops! I was worried that the stain would be impossible to remove, but all I needed to do was use a tiny bit of Folex and it disappeared. Removing the stain didn't leave behind any pilling or pull at any of the fabric, so I have faith that the material is durable and will last a long time.
What's Worth Noting About the Castlery Hamilton Sofa
If you don't opt for white-glove delivery, the couch does require a tiny bit of assembly. It arrived in a box that was delivered directly to my living room, but it was up to me to remove the box and move the couch where I wanted it. I wouldn't say the process was easy per se, but I was able to get it done with a little elbow grease. The couch also comes with legs that need to be installed, but they're located underneath the couch in a hidden zippered pocket and didn't require any tools to assemble — all I had to do was screw them in. Overall, the process was much easier than I thought it would be and didn't require any additional help.
I have a small apartment, so I opted for a version of the Hamilton that would optimize my space, but there are a couple of customizations you can make if you're looking for more seating. The Hamilton can be purchased with a left- or right-facing chaise or round chaise, which will give you extra room for another body or allow you to stretch out your legs while you're relaxing.
This sofa is lower to the ground than a lot of other furniture pieces I've tested, so you'll want to keep that in mind when searching for complementing pieces like coffee tables and side tables.
Who Is the Castlery Hamilton Sofa Best For?
The Castlery Hamilton Sofa is perfect for anyone seeking a comfortable seating solution that offers the opulence of a luxury couch without the expensive price tag. It would look great in any space, and I'd recommend it for many different interior aesthetics.
Is the Castlery Hamilton Sofa Worth the Splurge?
In my opinion, this sofa is worth every penny. Not only is the couch one of the most comfortable pieces of furniture I've sat on during my search for new furniture, but it truly is beautiful. It's sturdy, and the quality can be seen and felt, especially in the stitching. Also, I know firsthand that the fabric is durable, so this will be a piece I have for years to come.
Another plus? The shipping time took less than two weeks. A lot of similar options I looked at would have taken at least four months to get to me, and that was time I didn't have. This sofa landed in my living room in a short amount of time, and it was worth every second I had to wait.
