So you’ve finally done it – bought that new home or moved in with your significant other, leaving that ratty couch from your parent’s basement in the 90 out on the curb. Congrats, you’re stepping up in the world! And good thing we’re here to help you replace it with an effortless online shopping trip that can be done from the comfort of your cozy bed. May we recommend grabbing a bottle of wine before getting started?

We’re rounded up the best online sofa companies that have been disrupting the industry over the past few years. It goes like this (the 4th, the 5th) - you select your dream couch, it arrives in a box and then you quickly assemble it. And damn, you’re good to go. Get ready to kick back and celebrate the fact that you’ve saved yourself a painful shopping trip to Ashley’s Home Furniture. Because with these brands, the deal doesn’t “end tomorrow” – it’s every. single. day. Yeah, that’s what happens when you eliminate the retail markup.

If you’re nervous about buying a couch without sitting on it yourself, we recommend you spend time reading the reviews - they don’t lie. And most of these companies have a satisfaction guarantee - meaning that if you decide you don’t like your purchase, they’ll come remove it, no questions asked. So get with the times. You deserve the highest quality sofa you can afford for that bum of yours – and you’ll be needing one of these fairly priced options.    

We’ve make browsing as easy as possible by sharing all of the info you need below. As always feel free to drop us a comment…you know how we love to hear from you.

Burrow

Burrow is one of our favorite brands, and you’ll want to pay attention because they recently added leather sofas to their already amazing mix. We’re big fans of their imagery because it inspires us to, quite literally, dive into our couches face-first and stay there all day long. They’re designing furniture for real life, not life in a cookie cutter catalog – so grab a snack, get ready to hang - and if you spill food everywhere while passed out, well that’s just fine with them. Their sofas even have built-in USB chargers so you literally don’t have to move.

So by having a made-to-order business model, they avoid this, protecting Mother Earth and your wallet.
