Farmhouse sofas are a classic design staple. I always find it amazing that the style of these sofas, which could be found in any granny’s den, have truly withstood the test of time. But then, why wouldn’t they? Rather than having a rigidly defined style, these price friendly farmhouse sofas have a variety of characteristics they may, or may not, take on. The common look or style of farmhouse couches can include:
- Neutral Tones
- Wooden Legs
These are just a few features that you can get in farmhouse sofas, and they generally appear individually in design. As you’ll see, though, farmhouse sofas are in no way limited to the characteristics listed. What really qualifies a sofa as “farmhouse” style has more to do with the overall look and design, making them extremely versatile. This means that they naturally work with any space in your home – rather than making you work to fit them in!
Since many elements are flexible based on your personal style, choosing a sofa can make or break the style of your home. You want to get one that blends easily with any existing rustic, country, or cottage farmhouse decor in your living room as well as with your existing furniture.
My Favorite 16 Farmhouse Sofas & Couches
Chosen appropriately, farmhouse couches can be a quintessential addition to the look of your home, offering comfort and style you’ll love. Since this can be such a challenge, I scoured the internet to give you options you can trust as you shop for your ideal farmhouse sofa.
Most Versatile Design
Designing with a neutral tone does not mean designing in monotone. The ever-so-slight variances in shades can be one of the most enjoyable parts of utilizing a neutral palette. This versatile oversized sofa is a comfortable choice for any farmhouse living space.
Keeping You Cool
The cooling cotton fabric of this farmhouse sofa takes its inspiration from the original southern style – back before they had air conditioning! While I’m not sure how they survived, this traditional sofa proves that they considered staying cool even when designing.
Stand Out With Leather
This sofa is a modern take on the traditional farmhouse style. The chic leather will set it apart from the rest of your design, so it is best if you want a subtle statement piece couch. The rolled arms, wooden legs, and overstuffed pillows keep it stylish without appearing uncomfortable.
Most Storage Space
This sofa is perfect for a home with limited storage space. It has a camouflaged magazine caddy on one arm and hidden storage inside the ottoman. I also like that the ottoman can be moved, making this couch easy to arrange to fit your room.
High End For Less
The classic tufted couch – with a twist! Not only does this design feature leather, but it is also at a price that can make any budget design look high end. My favorite aspect of this design is the equal height of the arms and back making the sofa more comfortable and stylish at once.
Fits Any Design
This small and simple sofa can work with any farmhouse design or color palette. It is ideal for a living room that is being updated but not completely redesigned. The graceful curve of the arms bring an extra air of elegance.
If you are designing a farmhouse style living space but still want a sofa that calls attention, this tufted red design is ideal for you. Not only will this statement piece bring in compliments, but its firm-but-comfortable cushions will also provide lower back relief to anyone who sits on it.
Most Unique Material
This luxurious sofa is covered with a soft gray velvet that is noticeably stylish and comfortable. The unique feature of this velvet is that it brings a modern feel to the design while remaining low-key and neutral. This piece will stand out but never detract from your farmhouse living room.
Easiest to Maintain
The tufted seat and straight edges of this couch keep it balanced between traditional and contemporary. Its slick leather cover and lack of cushions make it easy to clean any unexpected messes.
This royal blue sofa is an elegant addition for a classic farmhouse living room. The studding is a detail that adds a delicate yet rustic element to the otherwise luxurious couch. The high back and arms give the illusion of more depth, making it a perfect sofa for a small space.
This sofa brings the french countryside into your farmhouse design. Available in multiple sizes with different pillow options, you easily can dress it up to fit your whole room’s style without having to do more shopping.
Laid Back Leather
This leather sofa is more laid back rustic than high end modern. It is a great sofa for a room that holds true to the traditional farmhouse style. I would place this in a room with a neutral to warm color palette.
Best Value for Size
This large sectional is great for a spacious living room being designed on a budget. It has many color options, and its sleek design adds a subtle modern edge. I would use its slightly contemporary design to balance out more rustic elements.
Most Notable Tufting
The top to bottom tufting on this timeless sofa makes it a more subtle choice for a statement piece sofa. I like that the retro wraparound style of this sofa adds a mid-century modern appeal that pops in a traditional farmhouse design.
This sofa screams old-fashioned chic. I would use it in a design to dress up the rustic charm of a traditional farmhouse design. The tufting paired with the curved back will make your living room appear fitting for royalty – AKA you.
This small sofa is perfect for a small living room. Its chaise design gives more seating for entertaining guests without taking up limited space. This simple sofa will blend into your farmhouse design best if you are using a cooler palette.
This spacious farmhouse sofa is perfect for a family living room. It is easy to clean, but still plush enough to be comfortable for family movie night. Personally, I prefer the cream shade because it lets the rich turned wooden legs shine.
Tips for Purchasing Farmhouse Sofas
What to consider when you’re in search of the best sofa fit in your farmhouse living room decor. How much space do you have for your couch? How does it have to be shaped to fit in your home? Does it have to be small or can you get a sectional? What about color of the upholstery, white, brown? Visualizing the final details of your farmhouse style is easier when you have a realistic idea of the space it needs to fill.
How to choose the best farmhouse sofas
Always consider your personal style first. Next, I think about which sofas design characteristic I find most important to include. Are you inspired by rounded curves and tufting? Or do you want to bring in a more modern material with your sofa? Pick which features are most important for your sofas to have, and start your search from there.
Try something adding a moveable chaise
Once you know what you’re looking for, be open to finding new inspiration while you shop for the look you love. If you are committed to traditional sectional farmhouse sofas, consider an arrangeable chaise option for easy re-design. This way, it can give additional seating without jutting into valuable floor space. An option, even as simple as a moveable chaise or hidden storage, is important to keep your design feeling fresh.
What to consider before buying
My first priority before actually signing on the dotted line is staying within my price range. Will purchasing your farmhouse sofas limit your budget for the rest of your design? If so, it is best to decide which farmhouse features were the most attractive before seeking a similar, but more affordable, option.
Finding your couch is the moment you know that your design is really coming together. It does more than complete your design; it is the piece that will bring people together in your home. In a traditional farmhouse design, it can be easy to let your sofa fade into the background. With the right sofa, though, you can transform your space from a simple living room into a gathering place for friends and family alike.
