West Elm’s Most Stylish, Small-Space-Friendly Sofa Is on Sale for $560
It’s no secret that we at AT are huge fans of West Elm’s sofas; we’ve fallen in love with more than one of their gorgeous offerings over the years (hello, Harmony!). But if we had to choose just one that we’re really most excited about, the 72-inch Oliver would definitely be a strong contender. What makes this small-space sofa such a standout? For starters, the $699 price tag for the twill version certainly caught our attention right away, and we’ve even seen it on sale for as low as $559.20!
Despite being so budget-friendly, though, the Oliver still has all the quality and style we’ve come to expect from West Elm. Its sturdy frame is hand-built of solid pine and engineered wood, and it’s designed with high-gauge sinuous springs to support the medium-firm foam cushions. Overall, it’s a solidly constructed piece that’s built to last, yet it isn’t so pricey that you’ll feel obligated to hold on to it forever.
That said, if you do end up keeping it forever, the Oliver won’t feel dated. Featuring subtly flared rubberwood legs and a clean-lined, classic silhouette, its mid-century modern design is always in style and will complement just about any aesthetic. While it’s not quite as customizable as most West Elm sofas, you can still get the Oliver in two different upholstery styles: the texture-rich woven twill in a dove hue mentioned above, or a yarn-dyed pewter, which costs $799. The Oliver also comes in an 82-inch version in the same upholstery styles, priced at $719.20 (normally $899) for the dove color and $799.20 (normally $999) for pewter.
Another reason we’re loving this sleek two-seater is that it’s ideal for small spaces. Its relatively deep seat and medium-firm cushions mean that unlike many apartment-friendly sofas, it’s actually comfy enough to curl up on for hours. But its overall size and silhouette are still super compact, so it won’t overpower a smaller living area or take up too much space. Plus, its legs are easily removable — a feature that might seem unnecessary until you move into an apartment with an unusually narrow front door.
In short, if you’re looking for a stylish, comfortable, well-made sofa that’s suited for a small space (and for a small budget), West Elm’s got it — who would’ve thought?
