2. Bryce Lounge Sectional Set at PB Teen

3. SÖDERHAMN Sofa at Ikea

Small, stylish and affordable, the SÖDERHAMN armless sofa comes in four colors and other sizes and styles. Place a coordinating ottoman against the sofa to create a small lounge spot or use the ottoman as a makeshift coffee table. Want arms to rest your head on? Ikea’s got a version like that available too.

73″ W x 39″ D x 33″ H, $599 at Ikea

4. Avec Apartment Sofa by CB2

The Avec comes in at just 65 inches wide to work in the smallest of living rooms. The thin arms create more seating area space, while the raised mid-century modern-style legs create the illusion that this small apartment sofa floats. The tight-back style (no back pillows) is functional for spaces where a deeper sofa wouldn’t fit.

65″ W x 34.5″ D x 29.5″ H, $1,399 at CB2

5. Morpheus Reversible Sectional by Mercury Row at Wayfair

The classic, understated styling of the Morpheus small sectional works in a traditional-style small living room or a modern, small apartment space. The 59-inch long chaise is the perfect spot to kick up your feet to chill or take a nap.

7. Napa Sandstone Build Your Own Sectional at West Elm

West Elm offers six modular pieces that can create a sofa or sectional in any size and style you’d like. An armless piece beside a chaise piece creates a cozy 87-inch sectional, so while it’s on the larger end of small pieces, it’s still functional in a tiny space.

Sizes vary, $999 – $3,999 at West Elm

8. Deco Convertible Sleeper by Room and Board

A sleek, modern and armless sofa that’s a hybrid between a futon and a sofa, the Deco quickly converts into a queen sleeper. It’s one of our favorite couches for small spaces. There’s a storage sling under the seat that can hold sheets, pillows and other bedding.

Last but not least is this luxurious small apartment sofa. Restoration Hardware makes this hand-crafted sofa that features a solid wood frame. There’s also an option to add feather inserts in the seats and backs, as well as several leathers and high-end fabrics. The best part of the Maxwell is its size options: three depths (from petite to deep) and sizes from 5 feet up to 10 feet.
