The sofa is arguably the single most important piece of furniture in your living room. It sets the tone and adds a convivial quality to the space. No matter how cramped our apartments are, it's the one thing that our homes simply can't go without.
Finding room for a couch can be challenging if you live in a tiny city pad, but fear not: Many furniture brands have created designs for this particular dilemma. Aptly named "apartment sofas," these items are narrower in width — typically not exceeding 77 inches — and can fit snugly into itty bitty spaces. We've rounded up the best bets for apartment sofas on the market that do a little bit extra in the design department, from thoughtful storage capabilities to streamlined shapes. Click through for 10 cozy loungers that fit into the tightest living den.
