Finding the perfect comfy couch is like trying to find the perfect outfit. It needs to be comfortable, stylish and always timeless to last as long as possible. We have rounded up three stellar options for your living room couch that will save you money, offer great value or provide the best seat in the house for a hefty price tag. South Africa is home to some of the best local manufacturers possible and these listed local suppliers are no exception.

1. Save

A customisable option may seem intimidating and expensive, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Coricraft is an excellent option for choosing the perfect couch. From different sizing to different materials and well-priced to suit your budget, their couches are a good option to consider. The Rosco fully upholstered couch, as pictured below, is handcrafted with reverse seam detail and sink-in seating for the laid-back feeling every comfy couch needs. The contemporary look allows this couch to fit into almost any design aesthetic, offering a relaxed look with a less structured silhouette. The only downside would be the lead time required, so be sure to order these as far in advance as possible to ensure your couch is delivered to you when you need it.

2. Spend

A couch that encapsulates style, luxury and comfort with just a little extra is the Weylandts Denver Sofa. The three-seater couch has a deep seating area, allowing you to lounge across the couch and relax in style. The extra padding on the side also gives the couch a lived-in feel, while the framework keeps it contemporary to look great in any home. The leather is a good material that wears over time for a distressed look without appearing untidy. A bonus is that these couches are available to purchase online or directly off the showroom floor if you need something for your living room immediately.

3. Splurge

When the budget is not too tight and comfort is absolutely key, consider purchasing a Vetsak sofa for your living room. This couch is modular, allowing you to create your unique size and fit and also comes in a range of colours and fabric choices that are soft and plush. Vetsak burst onto the furniture scene with their patent beanbag filling that contoured to your body, offering the ultimate feeling of comfort and snuggles. The new couches are designed to slip off and slip on the covers for easy washing, are handmade and not forgetting they are 100% vegan. The easy-lock click-together system also ensures the modular parts stay together without someone slipping through the joints. If you want a beanbag in a couch format, this is the sofa for you.
