Our Favorite Sofas Under $1000 (And a Few Under $500)

Typically recognized as one of the pricier pieces of furniture you buy for your home, choosing a sofa is a big decision. In my own experience, I’ve learned it’s best to wait and see what you’ll need before making a significant decision on an item that will cost you a couple of thousand dollars. And if you aren’t in the position to invest in a statement piece at that price point, I am here to tell you that there are a number of amazing styles and options for sofas that are all under $1000.

The reasons for buying a sofa under $1000 vary; whether you’re living in a small-sized apartment with limited space or are in a transitional period of your life, not looking to invest in any major furniture for a few years, it is important to buy things you feel okay with not working in the long-term space you see yourself someday occupying. Maybe you have young kids or are potty training a dog, or simply just know that you’re in a phase of life where you’re going to be extra hard on your furniture. Whatever the case, it’s crucial you understand the time of life you’re currently in before beginning the style hunt.

We’ve included a number of sofas all under $1000, and a few under $500. As you’ll see, I pulled 10 of my favorites, as well as information on where to shop used or damaged pieces. While sacrificing mint condition quality, you can save $$$ on shipping costs and decrease your carbon footprint. What’s not to love?


Mirage Sofa

I am in love with the contrast between this sofa’s traditional shape and its minimal legs! So much style for such a great price point. Great quality, too. (I’ve owned a number of Article sofas and furniture pieces, so I can attest!)


Ronan Grey Sofa

This beautiful sofa, designed by furniture designer James Patterson for CB2, is a great option for those with little ones. Its clean lines and black legs give the sofa sleekness and a modern edge.


Preston 68″ Sofa

This small-sized sofa comes custom-made with the fabric of your choice, a year-long trial, free returns, and a lifetime warranty. Not exactly a statement piece, but good quality for the price point.


86″ Velvet Track Arm Sofa

From the new Drew Barrymore Flower Home collection, this Velvet Sofa is great for people who like clean lines but want to take a bit of a risk with color. Super long, unique shape; also available in Navy and Grey.


Gemma Velvet Convertible Sofa

Love the playful back on this convertible sofa from Urban Outfitters. Great for small spaces and apartments. Browse a number of other beautiful colors, including Rose, Teal, and Moss.


Mid Century Leather Sectional Sofa

At a great price point, this Leather Sectional is modern yet relaxed. I love the silhouette and the mixture of unexpected materials.


Greta Recycled Leather XL Sleeper Sofa

This versatile sleeper from Urban Outfitters has a unique look with a sense of bohemian cool that can easily go from sofa to sleeper. Plus, it’s upholstered with ultra-soft recycled leather!


Sydney Recycled Leather Sofa

Classic, modern, clean lines, in style, and made to order. You’ll have this Leather Sofa for years to come. Upholstered using super soft recycled cantina leather.


Quinn Striped Sofa

I am in love with this print, the timelessness and the size of this smaller loveseat from Urban Outfitters. It has a really fun mixture of materials that create a look that’s both boho and classic. Great for an apartment or any small spaces!


Not a traditional pick for a sofa but a great price for a piece that would bring a ton of character and eclectic vibes. Not to mention, a great place to take a cat nap.

A Few More Of Our Favorites…

If buying new isn’t for you, consider checking out scratch and dent outlets like Blu Dot and Room and Board, or resale sites like Charish and Apt Deco. They are all fantastic options!
