Versatile style and a removable white slipcover make Ikea’s Ektorp sofa a foolproof option for any room. It’s soft and cushy, and you can’t beat the price.

This charcoal coloured sofa is a good investment, since the grey trend shows no sign of slowing down. Plus, it doesn’t show wear and tear as easily as lighter shades. Being super low to the floor gives it Euro flair, so load it up with mismatched pillows and it will look like it’s straight out of an atelier in Paris.

This sofa has it all: soft, plush seats and back, a simple modern style, an environmentally conscious hardwood frame and construction, and a reasonable price. Plus, the rich red upholstery fabric will liven up any living room!

This retro-style couch could be from the set of the television hit Mad Men. Still, its urban, elegant quality would work equally well in traditional or contemporary interiors.

This sofa design features a solid hardwood frame with woven natural apaca fiber and cotton twill cushions. It’s suitable for porches, sunrooms and covered patios. The style works for all seasons, however, and can be easily brought indoors and loaded up with funky throw cushions.

Comfortable and plush, the versatile shape and colour of this sofa will allow you to easily change its look depending on the accessories you pair it with. The espresso stained legs make it more traditional, but the nailhead trim is totally current.

If you are looking for a sofa to last a lifetime, consider investing in rich brown leather. Although the price may not seem “budget”, it is reasonable considering the solid wood frame, nailhead-trim detailing and low back that will keep it on trend for years to come. Real leather wears and cleans well and only gets more beautiful as it ages and fades.
