3. The small sofa (that's also a sofa bed)

What’s a small space dweller to do when it comes to providing extra beds for overnight guests? While most sofa beds are fairly hefty, the Lennon sofa bed from Perch and Parrow is super compact (only 150cm wide) and we are pretty sure it will squeeze into most small living rooms.

4. The budget small sofa 

The Lily from is ideal if you are working with a small space and doing up a living room on a budget. It has a surprisingly spacious seating area despite its small footprint, due to its pared back shape plus, the fixed seat and back cushions also cut down on excess cushions and give the illusion of size.

5. The Mid-century inspired small sofa

Going for the Mid-century modern vibe in your living room? The simple design and tapered legs the Scott sofa from Perch and Parrow would fit right in. It’s also great for small living rooms as the pared back frame and slim, high legs allow plenty of light to flow around the space.

6. The traditional small sofa

If your prefer a more traditional living room style, the Balmoral two seater from Heal’s has plenty of classic details but is less bulky than a regular Chesterfield. It’s high back and arms give the illusion of it being a much larger model, when in fact it is fairly petite at only 152cm wide.
