When it comes to living room seating, there’s something about a bench seat sofa we will always love. Aside from its clean, streamlined look that can help even the tiniest studios feel longer (thanks to the single-cushion design), there are many other great aspects to these sofas. From being able to fit more people (no more fighting about who has to sit on the cracks — and much more cuddling) to possessing the ultimate nap piece (hello hip support!), the plusses are big with a bench seat. With all these pros on its side, we also think it’s important to note the one con to these sofas: If there comes a point where you need to replace the cushion, you will need to replace the entire thing. However, unlike sofas with separate cushions, wear-and-tear tends to be more uniform for bench seats, meaning you can expect your cushion to last a while. Intrigued yet? Below, we rounded 11 of our favorite bench seat sofas that are perfect for all styles and budgets.

The Elias may be the priciest on this list, but with good reason. If plush, luxurious comfort is at the top of your must-have list, then this is the piece for you. It has a "marshmallow-y" feel thanks to its spongy five-layer seat, which is comprised of a blend of down feathers, luxe foam, and a high-resiliency foam core.
