A sofa under $500? Yes, it is possible. A while ago I set myself to the challenge of creating a roundup of attractive sofas for less than $1,000 dollars, and was pleasantly surprised by number of appealing options I found. So this time I thought I'd up the ante a bit, and drop the price even lower. Check out what I found.
Emerald Marian Loveseat at World Market, $499
Ektorp Sofa with Chaise in beige at IKEA, $499
IKEA's Ektorp sofa is a time-honored classic, and, somewhat astonishingly, you can purchase this 3-seater with a chaise for less than $500. (This price is just for the beige sofa: the other colors will set you back a bit more.)
Karlstad Sofa in Grey at IKEA, $399
Avenue Greene Reba Gray Sofa at Overstock, $466
For fans of the Florence Knoll sofa (or Crate & Barrel's Petrie) operating on a serious budget, there's the Reba sofa.
Duncan Sofa Bed at Overstock, $492
Winslow Concave Arm Modern Sofa at Overstock, Starting at $454
This versatile sofa would be equally at home in a modern or more traditionally styled interior. It's available in four different colors.
Traditional Velvet Loveseat at AllModern, $500
Here's yet another velvet loveseat priced at about $500. The channel tufting gives this one a stylish look, and the two matching accent pillows are included.
Finck Sofa at Joss & Main, $370
This gray sofa has a unique, almost Art Deco look, and reviews are very positive, averaging almost four-and-a-half stars.
Mid-century Sofa with USB at AllModern, $490
Studio Sofa at Amazon, $329
Eve Convertible Futon at Target, $216
It's almost unbelievable to me that you could find a sofa at this price, let alone one that looks this decent, and yet, here we are. This sofa, which folds down to form a bed, gets an average of four stars over 106 reviews, which is really not bad at all.
