One of the most popular decor styles of the last decade is a minimalist lifestyle. A favorite among small-space dwellers, minimalism is rooted in the idea of clearing out the clutter and focusing on simple, more meaningful living. Stylistically, it’s typically characterized by clean lines and subdued, neutral tones with an occasional pop of color courtesy of an accent piece like an ottoman or rug.

When shopping for the perfect couch for your minimal living space, versatility is key. Since sofas are often a costly investment, we suggest opting for a pick that can be easily implemented into your design scheme and has the potential to adapt to a new space if you move. Not sure where to start on your hunt for the best minimalist sofa? We’ve got you covered. From sleek designs to sofas with a few curves here and there, we rounded up 10 of our favorite minimalist-friendly sofas on the market today.
