The Best Sectional Sofas for Every Budget
Including gorgeous options under $1,000.
Not to overhype a piece of furniture, but a well-designed sectional sofa might be one of the secrets to domestic bliss (and a beautiful living room). With room for you, a partner, pets, or kids, no one person gets the best spot in the house—it gives everyone the room they need to relax and enjoy a lengthy Netflix binge. So we’ve rounded up the best sectional sofas in a range of prices to fit your budget.
Before you choose your favorite, here’s an important tip to keep in mind: While you have to buy what you can afford, the price of a piece of furniture often reflects how it’s made and what it’s made of. If you’re looking for something that lasts, it’s smart to spend the extra money for a sofa that has a solid foundation, quality fabric, and cushions that won’t lose their shape. Buy what works best for your home, but pay attention to the construction, too.
