Bassett Has the Best Small Sofas for Small Spaces

Creating a comfortable, cozy sitting nook in a small space doesn't have to be complicated. You can make any small room into your personal oasis of calm and relaxation with the right small sofa. Why should big rooms have all the fun? Make the very best use of the space that you have.

At Bassett Furniture, you'll find small space sofas that maximize both comfort and the limited space you have available. Customize your small sofa with your unique touch and style or match your existing room design. Our furniture is designed to withstand a lifetime of use and still look and feel great.

Shop Bassett Furniture's intriguing selection of small sofas designed for use in apartments, studios, or rooms with finite floor space.

Our Small Sofa Collections

We carry a range of small sofas collections sure to match any style. Bassett's MODERN collection features clean lines, luxe accents, and a relaxed, comfortable feel. Or, discover something more natural and traditional like the Thames collection, with small sofas offering casual style with a moderately-scaled weltless track arm and including a waterfall skirt for a slipcovered look. Some of these collections are also featured in our small sleeper sofa selection.

Small Sofas Come in Different Styles & Sizes

Just because spatial constraints may limit you doesn't mean you're short on options when shopping for a great small sofa. Choose from many different types of upholstery, cushions, arm styles, leg height, seating height, and seating depth. There are plenty of ways to sprinkle your own unique style into your small sofa.

Average Small Sofa Dimensions

An apartment-sized sectional sofa could be as small as 80 inches wide by 35 inches deep. Loveseats and chaise lounges are naturally good options for smaller spaces, with standard styles measuring around 60 inches wide by 35 inches deep.

Your average small or "apartment-sized" sofa could be as small as 60" inches wide by 30" inches deep. However, because of various styles such as lounges, loveseats, and sectionals, small sofas can be as large as 80" inches wide and 45" inches deep. The depth of a small sofa changes depending on the seating style. For something with a more upright seating position, you'll typically see 19" inches to 21" inches and up to 27" inches for lounge-style seating.

Small Sofa vs. Regular-Size Sofa

There are many reasons why a small sofa can make more sense than a regular-size sofa. If your living room can't accommodate a full-size sofa, a small sofa is a perfect solution.

But nowadays, sofas aren't just limited to use in living rooms, and they're found everywhere from your home or business office to your bedroom, kids' playroom, and sunroom. A regular-size sofa may unnecessarily dominate smaller rooms, whereas a small sofa can fit in seamlessly.

When a loveseat is too small, and a regular-sized sofa is too much, your solution is a small sofa designed for small spaces. The small sofa is the Goldilocks of apartment seating options.

Customize Your Small Sofa to Your Liking

At Bassett Furniture, you can design your perfect small sofa to fit your style and preferences. From upholstery, cushions, and accent pillows to arm styles, seat depth, and trim, you get to decide precisely how your small sofa will look.

To get started with your very own small sofa design, schedule an in-person appointment with our design consultants at your nearest Bassett Furniture store. If you decide customizing is the way you should go, you need to consider several aspects. First, as mentioned above, seat depth is very important to ensure all guests are comfortable when sitting on your small space sofa. You can read more about the depth of a sofa in our blog to maximize the comfortability of your design. Second, you need to make sure you choose the right fabric or leather that will stand the test of time and messes. You can also read about what makes the most durable sofa in our blog.

Available Small Sofa Materials

The type of material you pick for your sofa matters as much as the color of the hardware. Not only does the material you choose have a significant impact on your small sofa's looks, but maybe more importantly, it changes how your piece feels. For example, a leather sofa with metal accents would have a colder and more modern feel when compared to something like fabric or wood, which can project a warmer feeling in your space.

Small Living Space Sofas FAQs

What are some different types of sofas for small spaces?

Bassett Furniture's selection of small space sofas includes leather and fabric options to fit anyone's taste. Most designs feature armrests, but some do not for those instances where every inch matters. We also understand that patios, decks, and sunrooms have space limitations as well, and that's why our inventory also includes small modern sofas for outdoor use.

What is the smallest size sofa?

The most petite small space sofa Bassett features in its selection is the BenchMade Custom Upholstery Armless Stand Alone Sofa. With only two seats and no armrests, its 66-inch wide solid wood frame can fit in the smallest living rooms and apartments.

How small can a sofa be?

As far as modern sofas go, the smallest a sofa can be is two seats, and even by that point, it is considered a loveseat. Any seating furniture with less than two seats would be viewed as a chair and a half or a recliner.

Which sofa is best for a small living room?

A compact or small space sofa is typically the best seating option for a small living room. Comfortable compact sofas feature two seats or three narrow seats at the most. They have a small frame to minimize their footprint on the limited available floor space. Many of our customers have also said compact sofas with removable cushions are convenient for cleaning and maintenance purposes.

What is the difference between a small sofa and a loveseat?

A standard loveseat typically comes in at 52 inches wide. That's definitely small enough to fit inside your apartment. But, will a loveseat make the most of the space you have available? A small sofa can give you a bit more wiggle room while still maintaining a smaller footprint than a regular-size sofa or sectional. The best sofas for small spaces offer between 72 and 78 inches of width and maintain a comfortable depth. Some even stretch out to 84 inches to help you maximize your seating space.

Create Your Dream Loveseat at Bassett Furniture

Incredibly versatile and easy to appreciate, loveseats can add comfort and style to almost any room in your home. Loveseats are a perfect complement to your sofa, a large living room sectional, or as seating for your guest room. Bassett Furniture loveseats and settees fulfill any number of roles in your home.

Have a room in your house that needs a particular type and style of loveseat? Design the perfect custom loveseat to meet your exact furnishing needs. Check out all the options in Bassett Furniture's line of beautiful small space loveseats. We let you choose everything from the frame type and seat depth, to the fabric type and upholstering color.

Loveseat Arm & Seat Sizing

The average loveseat will have a seat height between 19 to 22 inches above the floor. A loveseat's arms should be high enough to support your arms without you needing to raise your shoulders at all. If you have to raise your shoulder to rest your arm, it usually becomes uncomfortable over time. A good standard size for a loveseat armrest is about 7 to 9 inches higher than the seat height.

Loveseat Sofa FAQs

Do I have space for a loveseat?

Not every living space has enough room for two full sofas or a sectional; that's where loveseats from Bassett Furniture come in. Browse through our inventory to find the loveseat that perfectly compliments the other furniture pieces in your living room.

How long are loveseats?

The average length of a loveseat is 50 to 65 inches.

How deep are loveseats?

Standard loveseat depth ranges from 30 to 40 inches.

Are loveseats outdated?

If you ask our customers and designers, absolutely not! Loveasts are functional for small spaces and room design efficiency. To make it even better, Bassett has plenty of loveseat designs for you to choose from.

What does loveseat mean?

A standard sofa has at least three seats identified by three individual seat cushions and an arm at either end. A loveseat has no middle seat cushion, so it's just a more petite sofa with two seats. The "loveseat" name came to be since they seat up to two people quite closely together.
