The Best Overall Sofas of 2021

To help you find the best deep seat sofa, I tested individual models from over 23 different brands. These are the best new sofas with extra deep seats that balance the best in design, price, sustainability, and durability.

1. Allform

  • Price Range: 
  • Best for: modular furniture from armchairs to three-seater sofas and sectionals 
  • Upholstery Options: performance fabric, top-grain leather

What I Loved

What I love about Allform is their attention to craftsmanship and woodworking rendered in incredibly versatile modular designs that can fit any home. Because they offer such an incredible balance of design and durability, I had to put them at the top of this list. 

Allform is a family-owned furniture maker based in North Carolina specializing in practical, easy-to-assemble modular seating that can be customized for any configuration you’re thinking of whether you’re just interested in an accent chair, a loveseat, three-seater sofa, or even a sectional that seats up to 8 people. 

As a relatively new furniture company, Allform saw a gap in the market for stylish furniture backed by an expert eye for good materials. All of their frames are crafted from kiln-dried laminated hardwood and materials are rigorously tested to ensure they’re scratch, pill and stain-resistant. 

Shopping at Allform is also easier than most of the other brands I tested. They have just one physical showroom, located in New York City. However, their online store makes it easy to build and customize your very own modular furniture and have it shipped fast. Test orders I’ve done with Allform have taken just one to two weeks to deliver. And self-assembly took just 30 minutes for a loveseat and about 38 minutes for a three-seat sofa. 

After that, lounging (and even a light nap) felt amazing on Allform’s modular furniture. For long-term maintenance and customer service, the brand’s also thought of everything. Allform offers 100 day at-home free trials, meaning you can send back your furniture if you’re not completely in love with it. Plus, all of their frames are backed by lifetime warranties, something I don’t think I’ve ever seen a furniture maker offer. Although, given how sturdy their frames are, I doubt many people will actually take them up on it. 

What I Didn’t Love

During the 8-day period I tested Allform’s furniture, I didn’t see or experience any product defects or flaws. Also, there were virtually no negative reviews among the 300+ testimonials I read through. However, a few customers did not know they’d have to assemble furniture themselves. Despite that, I have to say that self-assembly is still much easier than with other furniture companies like IKEA or Joybird.

2. Vaughn-Bassett

  • Price Range: $199/95 to $4,599.95
  • Best for: wood furniture for the bedroom

What I Loved

I’m admittedly a huge fan of quality woodworking and joinery, so naturally I tend to gravitate to brands that harness the natural durability of solid wood in their designs. Vaughn-Bassett exemplifies everything great about American craftsmanship. The brand manufactures in North Carolina and Virginia, specializing in wooden bedroom sets usually styled in rustic farmhouse pieces that evoke classic Amish and Shaker designs.

In person, Vaughn-Bassett‘s pieces are simply stunning. They’re the kinds of heirloomquality furniture you can see yourself living with for a lifetime. Their drawers in particular are definitely well-worth the investment as their components and mechanisms are some of the most impressive I’ve seen in cabinet design. 

What I Didn’t Love

While I didn’t find too many negative comments or reviews on the furniture itself, many complaints I found were more focused on the lack of product availability or online sales through the company’s site. Currently, customers can explore models on the site but have to find dealers in their area.

3. Maiden Home

  • Price Range: $725 to $4,705
  • Best for: handmade seating, tables, beds, and storage pieces

What I Loved

Maiden Home furniture is simply a cut above the rest. You won’t find it in showrooms or in retail shops, but the brand brings an cool, crisp, breath of fresh air to the direct-to-consumer market with designs that look just as stunning in Architectural Digest spreads as they will in your living room

Like Allform, Maiden Home is an eCommerce brand that’s committed to bringing a mastery of woodworking and timeless design to home decor lovers everywhere. Starting on their site, everything is displayed in a curatorial layout, really driving home just how each piece is both  aspirational and functional. As a small space enthusiast, by far my favorite design is the Dune Chair and a Half, available in performance linen that looks as good as it feels. It’s the perfect elevated lounging piece that would work pretty much anywhere. 

What I Didn’t Love

Maiden Home features some of the most aesthetically pleasing and comfortable home furnishings I’ve ever seen. However, it’s a high-end company and their prices are on the steeper side, putting them out of reach for a lot of consumers.

4. The Joinery

  • Price Range: $199 to $9,799
  • Best for: customizable living room furniture 

What I Loved

Like the name implies, The Joinery specializes in premium hardwood furniture built to last a lifetime. Starting in 1982 as a one-person refurbishing operation, The Joinery still creates its contemporary furniture designs in its Portland, Oregon workshop. 

What I love about The Joinery is the company’s unwavering attention to detail coupled with its emphasis on sustainable design. Whenever possible, The Joinery‘s craftsmen find the most environmental source for Cherry, Western Walnut, Eastern Walnut, Maple, and Oregon White Oak. 

Unlike Vaughn-Bassett, you can buy their hardwood furniture directly from the company website, and you can even request wood samples to see how each type and finish will look in your home. 

What I Didn’t Love

Like Maiden Home, you’re going to have to pay a premium for The Joinery‘s furniture. While there are some affordable tables and accent pieces, expect to pay at least $2,000 for bed frames, sofas, and other large pieces.

5. Helix Sleep

  • Price Range: $85 to $1,749
  • Best for: hybrid mattresses, bed bases, bedding, pillows

What I Loved

In the past few years, there’ve been a dozen different “mattress in a box” companies, but Helix Sleep is by far the most innovative when it comes to combining convenience, affordability, and high quality American manufacturing. 

Helix Sleep’s signature is its range of hybrid mattresses, with seven different models based on personal preferences for firmness, temperature, and sleep position. The best part is that the company tailors its recommendations for you based on your answers to its sleep quiz. 

I actually have a Helix mattress of my own, the Helix Midnight which features medium firmness, pressure point relief, and side sleeper support. I have to say, it might be the best mattress I’ve ever had. I always wake up rested and with absolutely no back or joint pain. 

While they don’t create bedroom furniture yet, you can explore bedding, pillows, and even bed bases.

What I Didn’t Love

There isn’t really much to complain about. Helix Sleep creates impeccable mattresses and bedding, but like I mentioned, it’ll be great to see more bedroom furniture from this brand.

6. Floyd

  • Price Range: $285 to $5,995 
  • Best for: beds, tables, sofas and seating, outdoor furniture 

What I Loved

Floyd is a brand that creates “furniture for the home, not the landfill.” Starting in 2013, Floyd is part of a new generation of furniture manufacturer that sees sustainability as a core tenet of its brand and not just something to brag about in the press or on social media. 

Floyd got its start with just one product: a Kickstarter-funded table leg that could turn any found surface into a piece of furniture. Today, Floyd features everything from beds to seating and even outdoor furniture

It’s hard to pick a favorite piece. To be honest, they’re all incredibly well-crafted and look great in-person. What I do love about Floyd is their bundles, which makes shopping super convenient if you’re furnishing one room or an entire home. Their bundles are product collections you can buy all at once, broken down by room type: Living RoomDining Room, etc., along with bundles for entire apartments and offices. 

What I Didn’t Love

It’s hard to find anything to complain about. However, like Allform and Helix Sleep, it’ll be nice to see a broader range of furniture and home decor from Floyd in the future.

7. Benchmade Modern

  • Price Range: not available 
  • Best for: highly customizable seating, rugs, lighting, and home decor  

What I Loved

Benchmade Modern creates furniture handcrafted in Dallas, Texas and Los AngelesCalifornia and focuses on modern designs that you can customize based on everything from fabric to leg design, seat depth, and overall size. 

Their range of customizability is probably the thing I love the most, coupled with the relatively quick lead times for their made-to-order designs. For the purpose of this test, I went with the Skinny Fat Sofa, one of their ready-to-ship models. It was incredible to sit and lounge on, with a signature Trillium Foam filling that bounces back to its original shape instantly. 

What I Didn’t Love

I couldn’t find any super critical reviews, which isn’t surprising considering Benchmade Modern was voted Best Online Sofa of 2020 by Wirecutter and the New York Times. However, like other eCommerce brands, I’d love to see a broader range of designs beyond reinvented mid-century classics in the future.

8. Eastvold Furniture

  • Price Range: $680 to $4,950 
  • Best for: mid-century modern wood furniture, functional furniture

What I Loved

Eastvold Furniture is a furniture company based in Minnesota. Like The Joinery, Eastvold is rooted in a love for quality craftsmanship and high-quality woodworking. Each piece is made by hand and something that sets Eastvold apart is the company’s ability to create heirloom-quality pieces that can be shipped anywhere in the country. 

The company specializes in mid-century modern inspired pieces crafted from solid wood. In person, their furniture is simply stunning. And it doesn’t just look great, everything is crafted with an attention to function as much as form, with storage pieces, tables, and benches that are well worth it. 

What I Didn’t Love

Like Maiden Home, Eastvold Furniture is on the pricier side. Expect to pay a lot upfront. However, like I said, Eastvold is well worth the investment.

9. Stickley

  • Price Range: not available
  • Best for: furniture that stands the test of time

What I Loved

Stickley is a true American heritage brand. They’ve been around for more than a century, creating solid wood furniture with an unparalleled attention to craftsmanship. Today, they create furniture for bedrooms, living roomsdining rooms, kitchens, and home offices. They also feature a range of designs perfect for kids’ rooms. 

While a lot of companies tout themselves as producers of heirloom-quality, Stickley actually lives up to its word. More than one reviewer I came across discussed how their Stickley furniture was actually passed down to them as opposed to coming from a furniture store brand new, which was a level of brand loyalty I honestly haven’t seen much in the furniture sector. 

What I Didn’t Love

Like Vaughn-Bassett, it’s a bit challenging to find their furniture online. Their website doesn’t support eCommerce, so you’ll have to find furniture through one of their dealers.

10. Emblem

  • Price Range: $1,550 to $2,900
  • Best for: furniture for high-traffic areas

What I Loved

While other American brands focus on reinvented classics, Emblem designs bold, modern staples with luxurious upholstery and design accents. 

Like Allform, Emblem is fairly new to the furniture scene having just launched in 2019. However, the brand blends convenience and durability with the high-end appeal of a design studio. Not only can you buy made-to-order sofas and accent chairs, Emblem can also create fully custom pieces of furniture (considering you’re okay with a long lead time.)  

In-person, I’m a huge fan of The Strategy Chair, a rotating accent chair that’s honestly comfortable enough to work in all day. With its performance velvet upholstery and brushed brass or black base, it’s the perfect luxe piece that’ll elevate any office. 

Emblem also boasts some incredible lead times for custom furniture that’s designed and crafted to order. Emblem Standard pieces are available within 4 to 6 weeks, which sounds like quite the wait but compared to other designer brands, is actually pretty fast. 

What I Didn’t Love

While their lead times for standard models is about 4 to 6 weeks. You can expect 8 weeks or longer for custom pieces. Also, the brand only has a handful of pieces available made-to-order.
