10 best corner sofas for small spaces

I recently shared my plan for the open plan kitchen-dining-living room that we will be creating in our home. If you missed it, you can catch it here. As I showed on the floorplan, I’m considering a corner sofa for the sitting area. I think in the right kind of space, a corner sofa is perfect for informal living as it is great for sprawling out or having the whole family piled onto it.

Our space isn’t large, so the sofa would have to be no wider than 220cm but still fit at least 4-5 people. Most corner sofas on the market are wider than 240cm so smaller ones are not as easy to find. But I’ve been browsing all my favourite stores and have found 10 gorgeous corner/chaise sofas that fit within my requirements, so I thought I’d share them here in case someone else is also in the market for something similar. The price can vary depending on the fabric chosen so if you like any here, do check all the options and also whether you require a left or right facing corner.

My buyers’ guides are based on my favourite finds. If you buy a product through my link, I may on occasion earn a small commission at no extra cost to you. This will never bias my coverage. I just love to share with you the lovely products I find!

    Very timely. I’m just looking at buying one right now!
    But first I need to sell my old one. It was from Nash Interiors and has served us really well.

      I still feel sad that Nottingham lost Nash! They’re amazing, I hope to visit them in Derby soon. Good luck with selling your sofa, Jane. Have a look at other corner/chaise sofas too from the stores I’ve mentioned, I couldn’t fit them all into one post!

    I’m just on a lookout for a corner sofa for our living room. I quite like the Oscar, sadly it is out of my price range 🙁 I found that Next Home does corner and chaise sofas in different sizes, you might want to have a look there 🙂

      Oh thanks Anne Marie, I will definitely check out Next Home as I too am on a tight budget with my renovation. Let me know which sofa you go for!

    This is such a great post! Our living room is only small, and is a funny shape so we can only seat 4 people, and even then it’s not easy to talk to each other. A corner sofa would solve ALL our problems! I love that Arlo and Jacob one.

      So happy you like this post, Sarah! Corner sofas are great for maximising seating in a small space, that’s why we’ll be getting one for our open plan living too. Which of the two Arlo & Jacob sofas is your favourite? The Ferdinand is on my shortlist! 😍
