What I Loved

In just a few years, Allform has perfected the art of modular sofas. You can literally start with an armchair or loveseat and evolve your seating configuration for any home you end up in. They even sell sectionals that seat up to 8. 

The standard three-seater already features a sleek, low profile and deep seat cushions. but what stands out to me is Allform’s ability to customize their sofas and sectionals so you can include extra deep seating elements like chaise lounges. Shoppers can customize everything from the finish on the solid wood legs to the upholstery used on the base and removable cushions

In-person, the three-seater chaise sectional is impressive. Its high-density foam cushions also make it one of the best ergonomic back support couches I’ve reviewed in the past year. In fact, I was obsessed with how the sofa’s plush cushions made it so easy to recline, lie down, or just sit upright and do work on my computer without any back pain. 

Customer service and care is also something I loved about Allform compared to any other direct-to-consumer brand or retailer. Allform offers a 100-day trial period during which you can try it at home and return it if you’re not completely sold on the sofa. Also, they back all of their kiln-dried laminated hardwood frame with a lifetime warranty

What I Didn’t Love

To be honest, there isn’t really anything I disliked about the Allform three-seater. It’s worth the investment and Allform simplifies the shopping, ordering, and delivery process. However, it is still a sofa that requires some assembly. That said, you should have an easy time fitting the individual seating modules, backrest, and armrests together compared to lower-priced pieces from sites like Wayfair or retailers like IKEA.

Best Deep Seat Sofa: Allform

2. Best For Style: Sunday 82” Sofa by Blu Dot

  • Price: $2,899
  • Dimensions: 82″ width x 40″ depth x” 30″ height 
  • Seat Depth: 26″ 
  • Arm Height: 24″ 
  • Leg Height: 4″ 
  • Frame Materials: kiln-dried hardwood
  • Upholstery Options: 4 fabric options

What I Loved

If you’re a fan of modern, minimal styles you can actually live with, Blu Dot is probably the retailer for you. The Sunday Sofa stuck out as the clearest example of Blu Dot’s design ethos, with a low profile similar to Allform’s, along with big, cushy armrests and back cushions.

Like Allform, the Sunday also features a kiln-dried solid wood frame, making it a sturdy, reliable sofa. For this test, I chose the Sanford Black upholstery (which, if I’m being nitpicky, is actually a subtle beige/off-white.) Either way, it was incredibly comfortable and I could see myself actually living with this one. 

In terms of the seat cushions, 26 inches may not seem like a lot, but with the super plush back cushions and armrests, it almost feels like you’re being enveloped in it. So, if you’re looking for a sofa that’ll be perfect for movie nights and all-day lounging, this one’s for you. 

What I Didn’t Love

While the Allform three-seater and the Blue Dot Sunday are both sofas that require self-assembly, I honestly found Allform to be the easier one to put together. While Allform’s sofa took me about 30 minutes to put together, the Sunday sofa took some elbow grease and close to an hour.

3. Best For Extra Deep Seats: Lyre Chesterfield Sofa by Anthropologie

  • Price: $2,198
  • Dimensions: three widths (82″,90″, 100″) x 41″ depth x 36″ height 
  • Seat depth: 41″ 
  • Arm Height: 36″ 
  • Leg Height: 6.5″ 
  • Frame Materials: Kiln-dried laminated hardwood
  • Upholstery Options: 4 ready-to-ship fabric options, 20+ custom options

Photo courtesy of Anthropologie

What I Loved

This is a deep sofa. Anthropologie might be your go-to for chic, trendy home decor, but they may not always be at the top of your list for functional furniture you can live with and lounge on. However, I’m pleasantly surprised by the Lyre. It may just be one of the best deep seat sofas for balancing substance and style. 

Modeled after 18th-century Chesterfields with luxurious button-tufted backs, the Lyre gets a modern update with a sturdy, kiln-dried laminated hardwood frame on par with Allform’s and a noise-free flexorator grid suspension. 

While you can’t add on custom add-ons like chaise lounges or matching ottomans, it does come in three different widths depending on your living space

And have I mentioned how deep the seats are? At 41″, it’s likely the deepest seat depth on this entire list. 

What I Didn’t Love

Anthropologie’s site photography really sells you on that deep, rich emerald green velvet. However, that option plus 20+ upholstery fabrics are only available if you custom order it, which contributes significantly to an already lengthy lead time. 

Also, I didn’t experience any quality issues during the time when I was testing this one, but reviewers have complained in the past about the hit-or-miss durability of Anthropolgie’s furniture overall.

4. Best For Customizability: The Lewis Sofa by Joybird

  • Price: starts at $1,797
  • Dimensions: 83″ width x 41″ depth x 32″ height
  • Seat depth: 28″ 
  • Arm Height: 28″ 
  • Leg Height: 7″ 
  • Frame Materials: Bench assembled Engineered wood frame assembly reinforced with corner blocking and kiln dried solid wood 
  • Upholstery Options: 1 in-stock and ready-to-ship, 20+ custom options

What I Loved

Along with being a great deep seat sofa, this is also one of the taller sofas on this list, which is great considering the weird trend I’ve been noticing in the past few years for sofas to have as low a seat height as humanly possible.

Like AllForm and Anthropologie, Joybird also excels when it comes to the number of customization options, particularly when it comes to sizes and upholstery. Like the customer reviews, I also really loved the addition of throw pillows, something missing from the other top sofas on this list. 

What I Didn’t Love

Like Anthropologie, I fell in love with one of their performance velvet upholstery options only to realize that there was just one ready-to-ship option in an off-white fabric. Also, the Lewis sofa wasn’t as soft or as plush compared to the top three sofas on this list.

5. Best For Custom Seat Depths: The Harmony Square Arm Sofa by West Elm

  • Price: starts at $1,279.20
  • Dimensions: (four widths) – 76″, 82″, 92″, 102″ width x 36″ depth x 34″ 
  • Seat Depths: (three depths) – 36″, 42″, 47″ 
  • Arm Height:  23″ 
  • Leg Height: 5″ 
  • Frame Materials: Engineered hardwood frame with slot & tenon joinery
  • Upholstery Options: 30+ options

Photo courtesy of West Elm

What I Loved

Unlike the other options on this list, the Harmony Sofa comes in custom seat depths: 36, 42, and 37 inches, depending on how deep you want your sofa to be. West Elm also offers a range of customizations from width to over 30 different upholstery options. 

Along with West Elm‘s signature luxeclean lines and stylish appeal, it also felt incredibly sturdy, with its hardwood frame and high-gauge sinuous spring suspension that didn’t make a sound.

What I Didn’t Love

Like the Lewis sofa by Joybird, this one didn’t feel quite as soft or plush as the top three sofas on this list.

Best For Small Spaces: Allform Loveseat With Chaise

  • Price: $2,119
  • Dimensions: 63” width x 34” height. Chaise depth: 61″. Arm depth: 38″
  • Seat Depth: 24″ 
  • Chaise Depth: 61″ 
  • Arm Height: 25″ 
  • Leg Height: 6″ 
  • Frame Materials: Maple and poplar kiln-dried laminated hardwood
  • Upholstery Options: 7 performance fabric options, 2 leather upholstery options

What I Loved

If you want a sofa that will cozy up a tiny nook in your living space, this is the one for you. While certainly not as deep as some of the the other couches on this list, this sofa is still 3” deeper than the average, which can do a lot in terms of sinking in and cuddling up. Plus, the chaise adds 47” of depth on whichever you side you choose to put it on.

Like the 3-seater sofa by Allform listed above, this sofa is modular, so you can scale up or scale down as your space evolves and your needs change. This loveseat is just as supportive and comfortable as the 3-seater, and I was able to work on this couch all day without a hint of back pain.

What I Didn’t Love

Again, there’s nothing not to like about this sofa. There is assembly required upon delivery, but it is relatively simple compared to other sofa retailers and shouldn’t take you more than an hour.

Best Deep Seat Sofa Bed: Lodge Foam 96” Queen Sleeper

  • Price: $1,795
  • Dimensions: 96″W x 49″D x 39″H
  • Seat Depth: 30”
  • Arm Height:  32”
  • Frame Materials: Kiln Dried Solid Hardwood and Plywood
  • Upholstery Options: polyester

What I Loved

For some added functionality to your living space, this extra deep couch houses a queen-size innerspring mattress that is surprisingly comfortable as both a sofa and a bed.

This sofa is huge and incredibly comfortable immediately upon delivery. The cushions are plush and pillowy, but I still feel like I got enough support from the back cushions. The fabric feels luxurious and is velvety to the touch, and the bed pulls in and out easily.

As a bed, the innerspring is quite comfortable. You can also opt for the memory foam mattress, though customers online say it does take a couple weeks to soften up after delivery.

What I Didn’t Love

There’s nothing not to love about this sofa – I had a great experience with it, and it is universally beloved online.

Best Deep Seat Luxury Sofa: BenchMade Modern Skinny Fat

  • Price: $6,621
  • Dimensions: Custom
  • Seat Depth: 26”
  • Arm Height: 27”
  • Frame Materials: Solid wood frame
  • Upholstery Options: Leather, velvet, performance fabric

What I Loved

This sofa is sleek, modern, and one of the most beautiful, high-quality couches on the market. BenchMade Modern is renowned for their quality and attention to detail, which is impressive considering that everything about each sofa is customized to the buyer, from the length, seat depth, and bumpers to the pillow cushioning, leg finish, and fabric.

The frame depth is 43”, but with cushioning and padding there is about 26” of depth between the front of the couch and the back cushions. This feels like plenty of space, and especially with the trillium and foam cushions, you’ll sink right in.

Another thing to love about BenchMade is their lifetime warranty. So, even though the price tag is quite large, you know you’re getting something that will last you forever.

What I Didn’t Love

The price is the only thing that has me second-guessing this couch. But, the quality and lifetime warranty coupled with the fact that this couch is tailor-made to my needs makes me think its worth it.

Best Deep Seated Sofa For Modern Design: AllModern Pico 85” Sofa

  • Price: $1,700
  • Dimensions: 32.3” H x 85” W x 40” D
  • Seat Depth: 33”
  • Arm Height: 28”
  • Frame Materials: Solid wood
  • Upholstery Options: Cotton Blend

What I Loved

This couch is stunning. The reddish brown fabric is soft and luxurious, and clean lines make this an extraordinarily striking and modern sofa. Of all the couches I’ve tried, I’ve gotten the most compliments on this one, just on appearance alone. It steals the show in my living room.

Also extremely comfortable, the cushions are firm upon arrival but definitely relax over the first few weeks of use. It’s the ultimate lounger, and deep enough to really feel snuggled up with a blanket and a book.

What I Didn’t Love

While beautiful, the fabric is unforgiving and will show any moisture that touches it. To avoid stains, you have to be careful with greasy fingers, food, and even water. Also, the track arms aren’t super comfortable, but I just throw a pillow under my arm and all is well.

Best Deep Seated Leather Sofa: Woodrow Neo 87” Leather Sofa by Kardiel

  • Price: $5,540
  • Dimensions: Width 86.5″ x Depth 31.5″ x Height 28″
  • Seat Depth: 31.5”
  • Frame Materials: Kiln dried solid wood
  • Upholstery Options: Top grain aniline leather

What I Loved

This sofa reminds me of something I’d find in upper-echelon academia libraries or a psychiatrist’s office in the 1800s. It is beautiful, heavy, well-made, and just feels expensive.

The leather is beautiful and feels incredibly durable. Plus, the sofa cushions are soft and plush, and provide me with just the right amount of support to sit comfortably for hours.

Kardiel as a brand is fantastic throughout the entire buyer funnel, from browsing and buying to delivery. Customer service worked with me to find a delivery time that works, and it was a pleasure every time.

What I Didn’t Love

The sofa comes with 4 leather pillows that are way overstuffed, making them too hard to be comfortable. I just swapped them out with some throw pillows of my own and it still looked great.

Extra Tips for Buying a Deep Seat Sofa

Complete your look with a few accent items

A sofa with deep seats literally gives you plenty of room to accent it with decorative items. Go maximal with a mix of accent pillows and throw pillows. Consider a coffee table that corresponds with the width of the sofa and think about area rugs or accent chairs that’ll compliment your vision. Just think about your living space‘s color palette first before you toss pillows all over the place. 

Look for extra comfort options

If you’re looking for the perfect deep seat sofa, think about some other customization options that’ll make the most of your purchase. Think about removable or reversible cushioning, power recliners, along with specific styles such as sleeper sofas if you like having guests over.
