In November, 2007, a few weeks before our current recession began, Simplicity Sofas opened its factory doors with No sales, No backlog and No commitments and a brand new product that nobody had ever heard of. In the recession the furniture industry has been one of the hardest hit sectors of the economy. Hundreds of well known companies closed down or moved overseas. Small furniture businesses were particularly hard hit. Defying these industry statistics, Simplicity Sofas has grown quickly and profitably. The company has never taken a loan and has no debt.
This year we are on target to hit $1 million in sales. That may not seem like much to other manufacturers who can sell more than that in a single order to a large retailer. Simplicity Sofas, however, does not sell to retailers, wholesalers or distributors. Every order is shipped direct to an individual consumer. That’s nearly 800 individual orders annually.
The most important part of our phenomenal success in this harsh economic environment is the loyalty and enthusiasm of our customers. There are hundreds of testimonials about our products and service on blogs and other web sites. We are also extremely proud that we have now shipped our furniture to more than 1500 individual customers over more than 3 years and have never received a negative review. That does not mean our customers never have any complaints or problems. It does mean that when there is a complaint or problem we take care of it.
Are you looking for a small couch with big appeal? Are you faced with the daunting task of measuring doors, stairs or elevators to make sure that the small couches you find will actually fit in your home?
The new trend in small couches is becoming the norm for the majority of consumers today who are looking to make the most of their space. However, most consumers are struggling and realizing that finding the perfect small couch can be extremely difficult.
There aren’t many manufacturers that think about those of us who are looking
for small couches to fit our small spaces. When we are actually lucky enough
to find one, it is either too uncomfortable to sit on; too narrow or not
long enough to nap on; or just not sturdy enough to withstand day-to-day
Look no further, Simplicity Sofas has realized the need for small couches and has designed several options to fit your lifestyle. Plus, you don’t have to worry about getting your new sofa through narrow doors or tight stairs and elevators. We’ve taken the hassle out of that for you too by packaging the seating so it will fit through any tight space and can be assembled in 15 minutes with no tools required!
Let’s explore a few options when looking for small couches …
The Mid-Size Sofa
Our newest introduction, the Mid-Size Sofa is 6 inches shorter than our full size sofas and 6 inches longer than our apartment sofas. With 5 different collections, this makes for a perfect choice for relaxing, with extra long double cushions, which come in firm, soft or down-filled options. The Mid-Size Sofa is available in widths of 72 inches, 74 inches and 83 inches.
One of the amazing features of this mid-size couch is that you can add the EnduraEase sleep system, turning it into a sleeper sofa in minutes. It comes in a selection of 70 fabrics from which you can choose. You can order this product online, just make sure you select the Full Size Sofa Option, decide which collection you like, and upon ordering please note in the special comments section that you would like the Mid-Size Sofa.
Or simply give us a call at 800.813.2889 and we will be happy to talk to you about it and place the order for you.
The Apartment Sofa
Another very popular choice for a small couch is the Apartment Sofa. Its size is 6 inches shorter than the Mid-Size Apartment Sofa, but comes with all the amenities of cushion and fabric selections. However, the air sleep system is not designed to fut this small couch; it is still an excellent choice for any small space.
The Love Seat
Loveseats are 10 inches shorter than apartment sofas and designed specifically for small spaces. They can be the answer to your problem when a small couch is what you need. Try placing two loveseats facing each other, if you have the room to do so. Our loveseats are also available in 70 coordinating fabrics and can be the perfect solution where space is a challenge or where you might want to add additional seating to compliment your existing sofa.
All of our small couch options come with a lifetime guarantee on the solid-oak frames. Any of these options can be complimented by adding slipcovers, contrasting throw pillows or pet-proof fabrics. And don’t forget we also make chairs and a half and chairs.
So – now you know have choices.

Slipcovers are a chic and fashionable way to dress up a small apartment or studio loft and will change the look and feel of your specific room very quickly. For instance, if you are purchasing a Simplicity Sofas living room collection or a small couch and chair in neutral colors, you might consider adding some colorful slipcovers for the Summer to brighten up the room! You can become your own Interior Designer and change your surroundings with the seasons using our optional slipcovers – -
For Fall, add a slipcover to our chairs and a half in darker or complimenting colors to accent your original neutral tone of your small sofa. Adding throw pillows to small couches with alternating fabrics will really pull the look together. Check out this combination - -
If you host events during the Winter Holidays, consider slipcovers that combine shades of red, white, green or gold tones.This will make a room come alive for the occasion and create a Winter wonderland when paired with your decorations. Adding slipcovers during the Holiday season is like adding trimming to your tree.
Got pets? Then you may want to take a look at our pet-proof fabrics. These fabrics are lifesavers when it comes to children and pets and a great alternative to keeping your beach condo or lake furniture free from water spots, spills and accidents.
Simplicity Sofas slipcovers are custom made and specifically tailored to fit each piece of furniture we manufacture. They are not loose-fitting and you won’t have to spend countless hours measuring your sofa for the perfect fit. The color combinations are endless with 70 different fabrics from which to choose or, you can send us your own fabric and we’ll make the slipcovers to fit our seating for you.

We took the Brandon sofa, chair and ottoman, covered them in slipcovers of green and blue hues – - bringing the colors of the outdoors in. It made the room cheery and welcoming for the ensuing Spring and Summer months, reflecting the green of the grass and the blue of the sky…
Here’s just a few quick tips –
1. Accent your new furniture by moving some accessories or artwork from one room to another creating a simple, but new look.
2. Paint something: Whether it’s just some old baskets or pots you use for indoor plants and flowers, adding a little bit of color will lighten up your day.
3. Update those dark picture frames with colorful spray paint to match your new decor.
4. If it’s time to clean out the fireplace, do it and try putting a decorative flower arrangement or colorful candles inside instead.
What a difference just a few things can make!
