“Burrow is one of my go-to brands when designing for small spaces, especially their Range sofa. The modular options make it simple to configure something that fits like it was made for each space,” says Castro.
We love the minimalist, clean-lined 2-Piece One Arm sofa for a small space and for its flexibility. If you have a bit more room (or you move in the future!), you can add on additional pieces thanks to Range’s Universal Modular Design feature. Burrow’s modular collections feature convertible sofas with loungers, accent chairs, reversible chaises, ottomans, and several other pieces to create the perfect seating arrangement for your space.
Even with the two-seater sofa, you can arrange the two pieces in multiple ways. That versatility is key in a small living room, particularly if you need to use your living space for multiple uses, like a guest room or office.
Available in four stain-resistant, easy-cleaning microfiber fabric options and three leg colors, this sofa is customizable to your exact preferences. It also offers a supportive, firm seat and back cushions, which will stand up to heavy use.

“The BenchMade Modern Tyler sofa with bumper is a top pick for a smaller space. It’s a unique piece of furniture, and the eye-catching exposed legs give a feeling of lightness to a smaller space. Plus, the bumper on the side of your choosing helps to make the room look more open,” says Megan Torres.
The medium firm sofa has a high-density foam tight back and comes in fabric or leather upholstery with exposed wood legs. There’s a lifetime warranty, so you can feel confident knowing this one’s built to last.

Available in eight color options, including Distressed Vegan faux Leather, Blue Velvet, and Boucle, as well as two leg options, black or gold, the sophisticated Park Sofa is a refined option for someone who’s looking for a timeless sofa that feels light and modern in a small space.
"One issue with traditional sofas is they are huge, unwieldy, and difficult to get in and out of spaces," explains Albany Park co-founder Darryl Sharpton. The Park Sofa, on the other hand, is sturdy and supportive, but, because of its exposed legs, low profile arms, and sleek silhouette, it doesn’t add to the visual weight of the room.
With mid-century styling and a luxe feel, this sofa looks like an investment piece, and the 82” L will work in many small spaces, but also won’t feel too tiny if you do find yourself moving to a larger home.
