When you’re shopping for furniture online, photos can be extremely helpful. Photos can show you a fabric’s texture and give you an idea of proportions, so you can decide if and how, say, a stylish sofa might fit in your space. Unfortunately, one thing photos cannot reveal is comfort. For that, you have to either try the furniture out yourself — and go around town to multiple stores — or see what reviewers have to say.

Product reviews aren’t perfect. But when you read as many of them as we do (and we do read a lot), you realize they can often tell you more about a product than you could learn just from testing it in a store. Reviews contain the kind of knowledge that only comes through living with something in your home, and that is exactly the kind of experience we want when we’re looking for the perfect sofa. Below, check out the 11 most comfortable Wayfair sofas, based on stellar reviews. Every one of these picks has been tested and approved by multiple reviewers, so they’re all worth the investment for your living room’s comfort and style. Best of all? They’re all on sale for Way Day! Happy shopping!

This crowd-pleaser checks off all the most popularly requested sofa features: a modern style available in multiple colors, full width (that still fits in small spaces), and combination foam and spring cushioning. With layers of high-density foam surrounding sturdy inner springs, the cushions will keep their shape and support for a long time. Reviewers found it comfy and extremely quick to assemble. Plus, with linen upholstery, it's also a breeze to clean. We call that a dream.

This sectional is exceptionally versatile. It has a unique design that lets you either enjoy it as a chaise sectional or a full-on lounger/bed thanks to a pull-out sleeper portion. To top it off, the chaise opens up to reveal some hidden storage. Reviewers love how small-space-friendly this sectional is (always a plus in our book), and many called it an all-around great couch.

The top-quality vegan leather covering has a warm and inviting lived-in look that you can enjoy right from the get-go, and beneath it is high-density foam that makes for cozy seating.

Both the blue and burnt orange options are a great way to add a pop of color to your living room without going overboard or taking over the space. In addition to mentioning comfortability — one reviewer even called this "the best small space couch I've ever purchased" — many reviewers applauded its fabric for being soft, durable, stain-resistant, and upscale-looking: "The fabric is beautiful, looks and feels like one you'd find on a far more expensive piece of furniture."

Chesterfield sofas typically go for thousands of dollars if not more, so this one — with all the classic details like rolled arms, button tufting, and ornate wooden legs — is an exceptional bargain. Reviewers loved how supportive the sofa is, with one praising it for being "not squishy" and instead "tailored and refined." This model is on the firm side, which helps prevent sinking and sagging in the long run. Oh, and it's a convertible sleeper, too! See some of our other favorite Chesterfields here.

When we first saw this sofa in a Wayfair commercial earlier this year, we were dying to know if it was as comfortable as it looked. Well, one look at the reviews and it's clear it lives up to hype. With one reviewer calling it "super super comfy cozy" and another sharing, "If you’re looking for a lounging couch, this is the one for you," it's hard to argue that the Lonsdale is it. This pick features a low-slung design, contemporary styling, and "squashy cushions" that make this one sofa we're confident you'll never want to leave.

was $1500.00

Velvet has an unbeatable softness that makes sofas extra cozy, and this sofa offers it in 21 luxurious colors. With classic mid-century styling including clean lines, tapered legs, and chic tufting it's one of the most stylish picks on this list. While reviewers found this sofa to be comfortable, many of them were even more impressed by the quality of the velvet covering.

10 / 11
was $449.99

Mustard yellow and mid-century modern are a match that's meant to be. At a little more than 65 inches wide, this sofa easily fits into small living spaces. Many reviewers noted how easy it is to assemble and how comfy its cushions are.

The famous design couple of Courtney and Robert Novogratz put their impeccable style on display in this faux leather sleeper sofa. Reviewers complimented the sofa for being firm and supportive, as well as incredibly good-looking. We also like that it incorporates a split-back design to let you lower the seatbacks one at a time.
