Midcentury modern sofas have stayed in favor for a reason — they are elegant, sophisticated, and functional. Depending on where you get one from, they can also hold their value over time if cared for well. It can be difficult to find one that’s perfect for you with so many retailers selling them, but a lot depends on how you plan to use one.
If it’s a sofa that will sit in a rarely used space, you may opt for certain colors and fabrics that would differ from one that’s placed in the living room where family, friends, and pets call home nightly. Once you have that in mind, it comes down to what you’re willing to invest. Here are some of our favorite midcentury modern sofas that will fit any budget.

It comes in several color choices (check out the Citrus for a bold splash of color), and at around $1,000, it’s a great value for the design.
Another highly rated sofa is thesquare arm sofa from Wayfair. The midnight color would be gorgeous in a study or formal living room, and the removable seat cushions let you wear it evenly and make the sofa easy to clean.
