7 More Couples You Can Buy Online – and 1 Avoid (2021)
Maybe you have a hand-me-down or a solid flower confection without cutting it. Or maybe locked up at home during quarantine left in your sofa seats sunken and even worse for wearing. If you need a new sofa, you’ve come to the right place.
Some of us here at the Gear team have spent months trying out a set of beds that you can order online. We haven’t tried hard enough to make a definitively selected General Couch pick, but our preferences are now below.
Lots of likes bed mattresses, ordering a sofa online is simpler than it sounds. You just choose what you want, place an order, and voilà: Lots of boxes will arrive on your front porch. Assemble the pieces and you’re good to go. But it is important to do your research first. Many sofa makers offer sample swatches of fabrics, which you should take advantage of, to make sure the color and feel is exactly what you want. Be sure to measure the area where your couch is as well.
Updated September 2021: We added two more options, Lovesac’s Sactional and the Elephant to a Box Dynamic Sofa, and removed the old picks that were no longer available.
