Comfort means something different for everyone. Test out options before your pick your favorite.

Comfortable furniture that’s also stylish is one of the holy grails of home furnishing. Some new trends are picking up in 2024! Expect to see warmer, earthier tones, plus some wild prints. Softer, rounded styles are also on the rise, as is vintage nostalgia.

But remember, comfort means something different for everyone. Do you like your sofas short or tall, with firm or extra soft cushions? Make sure to test some options out in person before you pick your favorite.

Here are some of the most comfortable styles in sofas and chairs to get you started on updating your home with comfort in mind!

Modular Sectional

Location: Austin, Texas

Sectional sofas continue to be wildly popular. The modular style, low to the ground, with a simple, modern shape, will fit with almost any contemporary interior. This 6 piece modular sectional by Couch Potatoes boasts their deepest, softest cushions and comes in many neutral or bright colors. It even pairs with a moveable ottoman that you can slide into the center to make one huge pit sofa!


Location: Nettleton, Mississippi

Recliner sofas are back, with a twist! Turn your living room into a mini home theater with cup holders, and built in chargers. You’ll never want to get up. This Zero Gravity recliner love seat by HomeStretch Furniture also features a power headrest and lumbar, with an extendable footrest, to reduce pain in the hips, back, feet and more.


Location: Dallas, Texas

Multifunctional spaces and furniture are in huge demand. Sleeper sofas have dramatically improved along with technology. Forget sleepless nights with your grandma’s futon springs stabbing into your back. America Leather creates stunning sleepers in 100s of soft leathers or colorful fabrics. They create their own high density mattresses with a lifetime warranty on their platform sleep frame.

Rounded Chaise Lounge

Location: High Point, North Carolina

Going into 2024, expect to see a lot of soft edges, and rounded styles. After many years of sharper lines and geometric flairs, consumers are leaning towards more organic, homey shapes again. Chaise lounges have become a popular choice for a vintage accent chair, which can also double as a daybed. Consider this gently curved lounge by Southfield Furniture. Its soft gray will pair with almost any color scheme.

Oversized Swivel Accent Chair

Location: Eastvale, California

Swivel accent chairs and oversized, rounded media loungers have replaced solo recliners as the favorite living room chair. Parker House Furniture combines the best of both in this fuzzy, round swivel chair. More comfortable than many accent chairs, but more compact than an oversized media lounger, this mega ivory swivel chair will fit wonderfully in your bedroom, office, or living area.


Location: Thousand Oaks, California

Nothing says comfort like your dream sofa designed exactly to your specifications. The Sofa Guy creates custom pieces that will complement your home and lifestyle. Sofa height, cushion firmness, pet-resistant upholstery, back and neck support – you name it, and The Sofa Guy will create it!
