Your sofa is one of your home’s most important things, and not just among other types of furniture and modern items. It’s the comfortable place where you lounge in after a long day. The place where family and friends come together in the living room. A plush space where you sometimes read a good book on a rainy afternoon. Or the cozy spot where you sit back and binge-watch your favorite new TV show. Yet sofas often don’t get the attention they deserve. You may have an old, lumpy sofa you can’t bring yourself to replace, or you may think that buying a new one is too complicated and expensive. However, the flat-pack furniture trend makes it easier than ever to find the perfect design. This list of sofas in a box features beautifully designed, comfortable sofas you can usually assemble in mere minutes and use right away


The Floyd Sofa

We love the effortless laid-back style and the coziness of the Floyd Sofa, which makes it the perfect design to kick off our list. It features an all-natural birch wood and pine plywood frame with powder-coated steel legs for extra durability. The stain-resistant and easy to clean upholstery brings peace of mind that your new sofa will actually look like new for a long time. Cushions with foam layers of different densities ensure ultimate comfort.
While most sofas in a box are easy to assemble or to take apart if you need to move, Floyd takes things much further. The assembly process showcases the company’s obsession to detail and dedication to excellence. From the actual unpacking – which is a joy – to the instructions and the included tools, every step is as well thought-out as the sofa’s design.

Floyd also comes with an impressive 10-year warranty. We have chosen the 3-seater version for our selection, but you can also get this design as a 2-seater or a 3-seater with a chaise. Comes in five gorgeous colors that include Ocean Dive, Saffron, and Mist.
