Small Couches can fit up any stairwayAre 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

Jenna Sofa by Simplicity Sofas

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.

Ashton Small Couch - Mid Size Couch

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 SofaJenna Small Couch from Simplicity Sofas
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
Lorelei Loveseat in Nevis Plume 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.

    I need a small sectional for the following reasons:
    1) small space
    2) need longest part for me
    3) need short part/ corner for my large dog.
    I don’t see any sectionals online. Approx size is 60-72″ a cross back, 30″ wide, and short end of L would be 30-36″ across the back.
    Do make such a thing?

    We are in fact, in design/production of a sectional that will fit through tight spaces. I do not have a time line yet. When do you need this and what type of project are you working on? Are you looking for fabric or leather? I would assume a pet-proof fabric as you stated you have a large dog. Let me know what you are thinking and I will pass your comments onto our designer and owner. All input is great! Thanks for visiting http://www.simplicitysofas.com. We welcome your questions and responses.

    Just reading the comments on this page — any progress on the sectional? I’d love something like that for my finished (tiny-rowhouse-sized) basement. I’d be looking for pet-proof since I have friends with dogs and may get one of my own soon(ish).

    I really like your sofas & loveseats and ordered a few swatches.

    I live in Ontario Canada. Will you ship here or are you only shipping to the USA I saw your ad in the CS Monitor and would love to purchase one of your apartment or mid size sofas. Also may be interested in your new sectional.

All you need to do is give us a ring (800-813-2889) and we can talk about the items you are interested in, discuss fabrics, send you fabric swatches and give you a price for shipping. We have had a lot of responses from the Christian Science Monitor ad for Simplicity Sofas!

We look forward to your call!
