Sofa shopping has become a whole new world thanks to the internet. Now we browse the web for the best and most comfortable options rather than sitting on them in store after store. As consumers, we’ve quickly adjusted to this way of shopping, and hey, you don’t even have to leave the house to do so. The hard part is narrowing in on a retailer and brand. We love to turn to direct-to-consumer names because they make great products and have styled imagery so you can see exactly what you’re getting, and most of them offer more affordable price points. As self-proclaimed sofa experts, we often field the question, “What’s your favorite couch brand right now?” While there are so many great names that are doing big things in different ways, we can’t ignore that Castlery is one of our winners.
The brand’s mission is simple: it’s all about modern, cool, and comfy pieces that won’t break your budget. Our favorite thing about the brand is that it makes trendy silhouettes without the trendy prices. While these couches are still at a higher price point (made to last), they are far less than those popular designer pieces you can shop elsewhere. All in all, its sofas are smart choices that are stylish and worth it. Now all you have to do is find the one you want.
What to Look For When Buying a Couch
Now that you’ve narrowed in on a brand, you can think about what you really want. Do you want a statement piece that is both comfy and bound to turn heads? Are you looking for something more versatile that can blend right into your home? Material also plays a key role; durable fabrics like polyester are easy to clean and great for kids or pet-owners. We love a little bouclé and leather if you want a more textured look. Lastly, don’t forget to measure your space and get down to the inches. This way you can determine if you need a smaller silhouette like a loveseat or if you can opt for a big, cozy sectional. Luckily, Castlery has all these options and beyond, so we curated a list of our favorites ahead.
Our top pick is the Dawson 3 Seater Sofa ($1,949) for its big, plush cushions that look like a dream. Plus, it’s even an editor favorite, and you can read the full review here.
