The Editor-Loved Sofa Brand We’re so Glad We Discovered in 2021
It’s common knowledge that furniture companies can take weeks, or even months, to fulfill sofa orders, and there are many reasons for that. Sometimes, the issue is caused by shipping delays if the furniture is coming from an overseas supplier. Other times, the issue could be that you’ve selected a highly customized sofa that’s being made to order. However, Albany Park made a splash at AT this year by breaking the mold when it comes to modern style and prompt furniture delivery. This Black-owned business not only delivers some of the most stunning and cozy sofa designs you’ve ever seen, but they also found a way to deliver all orders in a week or less!
Along with a speedy delivery service, Albany Park truly creates furniture with the customer’s lifestyle in mind. Owners Darryl and Jessica Sharpton aimed to lessen the overwhelming nature of sofa shopping by trimming down the number of designs available and providing a variety of colors and patterns to choose from. That way, the decision-making process goes quicker without sacrificing style or comfort.
Earlier this year, I got the opportunity to test out Albany Park’s Kova sectional, and it’s become THE statement piece of my living room! The rich blue velvet fabric blends seamlessly with my subtly color-blocked furniture aesthetic, and the sofa itself is nicely oversized without being too much in a small space. It’s the kind of couch you want to hang out on, enveloping you in comfort with the modular structure of its high arms and back. The soft feather-blend cushions make it possible to really settle in and kick back at the end of a long day.
While not all of their inventory is fast-shipping due to current market demands, you can find a solid selection that ships fast and free, and many pieces will arrive right after the new year for orders placed before Christmas. If you’re planning to move or simply want to upgrade your old, worn-out sofa for a new, cozy one, Albany Park’s got some great options to choose from. Check out some of our favorite picks below!
