13 Seating Solutions for Small Space Living
There’s nothing more exciting than decorating a new apartment with brand new furniture that didn’t come off Craigslist. What’s not so fun is having to measure the room down to the quarter inch to make sure you can actually get your couch up the stairs and into your small space (#tinylivingproblems). But don’t let a small living room get you down — you can still get the entertaining space of your dreams with a little creativity. If that giant plush sectional won’t fit into your space yet, here are 13 seating options that work great in small spaces without sacrificing an inch of style.
2. Urban Outfitters Colette French Seam Settee ($1250): Featuring a higher back and arms, a settee is a great way to fill an extra-small space without committing to a full-sized couch. You won’t be able to sleep on it, but it’s a super comfy place for your next Netflix binge.
6. Urban Outfitter’s Frankie Chair ($379): If you’re really tight on space, a small armless chair is a great way to conserve real estate. Bonus: You’ll have a lot more room for other decorating must-haves like side tables and cool lamps.
9. West Elm Sivas Wool Pouf ($149+): The right pouf can be used as a side table, foot stool or decor as needed. Set a tray on it so it doubles as a coffee table when it’s not being used as seating. Or just let your cat take it over.
11. Poly + Bark Louis Ghost Style Armchair ($149, on sale): A lucite or clear chair gives the illusion that it’s not taking up much space, which can be really helpful when you don’t want your studio apartment to look too cluttered. Trust us: It’s almost like it’s not even there.
12. Urban Outfitter’s Maribel Folding Chair ($329): If you’re really tight on space (or just need to clear the living room), consider a chair that folds flat. Tuck it away when you’re not using it and pull it out when you need another seat. Or use it when you need a nap. It does look super comfy.
