When shopping for a sofa, versatility and durability are probably the two most important factors you’re looking for—after all, sofas are a major investment, in terms of both physical space and budget. When you find one that ticks all the boxes, you want to tell everyone—which is why we’re telling you about the Maxwell Sofa from Interior Define, designed by our very own Founder & CEO Maxwell Ryan.

Maybe we’re a little biased, but this sofa is pretty much perfect. With an extra deep seat and rounded arms, it’s the ideal spot to spend the day lounging and napping. It’s also incredibly versatile—and totally customizable. You have the choice between 70 different fabrics and colors, plus a couple style options, from the smaller apartment sofa to the double sectional sofa. With 100-day returns, free delivery, and even payment plans, this sofa investment is one that you can feel good about.

Even better: the entirety of Maxwell Ryan’s line for Interior Define is eligible for $100 off orders over $1,000 through June 14, using promo code MAXWELLID. To help you visualize your own Maxwell sofa (since there are kind of a lot of options), we rounded up some of our favorites Maxwell sofas in the wild, proving that it can be used with just about any style and space.

Shelby Girard, Head of Design at Havenly, chose to upholster her Maxwell sofa with a classic linen. The combination of the dramatic deep-seat and turned sofa legs paired with gold accents and cream colors in the rest of the room makes the entire look feel totally cool and sophisticated. This room is proof that black and white decor doesn’t have to be boring.

Arlyn Hernandez, one of AT’s former editors and currently the Editorial Director for Emily Henderson, went for a dramatic look by choosing a deep blue velvet for her Maxwell sofa. Against the white walls and otherwise neutral decor in the rest of the room, the sofa takes center stage and cools down the light-filled space.

If coastal is your style, take inspiration from this calm and casual space from Emily Starr Alfano of mStarr Design. The Maxwell’s linen upholstery paired with the wood legs turns this sofa into a warm and welcoming spot—and the throw pillows don’t hurt either. The muted color scheme, shag rug, and natural wood elements make this space a perfect cozy retreat.

Another styling choice that ups the drama, the deep green velvet upholstery on this Maxwell sofa is perfect for a nature-inspired, laidback space. This sofa looks right at home among all the plants (both indoor and outdoor), and the jewel tone really brings out the hardwood floors and wood decor elements.

If you take lounging seriously, you really can’t do better than the Maxwell accent chair and ottoman. Deep, wide, and luxuriously comfortable, this is the spot of your dreams. Jordana Nicholson chose to upholster her chair in a dark but soft blue and pair it with a tan leather sofa and an indoor tree, creating a natural, laidback oasis that’s perfect for naps and Netflix binges.
