In recent years floor sofas have become increasing more popular. A floor sofa is any sofa that sits directly on or right above the ground and ultimately has a low, modern, space-saving profile. In this post we have listed our favorite floor sofas available to purchase online. We have included options in all categories from sectionals to sofas and even kids floor couches. Whether you are looking for a modern sofa or a space-saving option for your apartment, you have come to the right place to find the floor sofa that fits your needs and budget. 

What is considered a "floor sofa"?

While a floor sofa isn’t an actual type of couch, it is a highly sought after style of sofa and is becoming increasingly more popular with consumers. We believe someone looking for a floor sofa is looking for a sofa that will look modern and take up less space. They can be great for watching tv, gaming, lounging with kids or the family, saving-space or just for their minimalist appeal. We have included sofas that both sit on the floor or hover right above it, ultimately bridging the gap between the floor and the sofa to create the ultimate seamless lounge space. 

Are floor sofas comfortable?

The comfort of a floor sofa all depends on the style and quality you choose to purchase. Some of the options made for children may not be conducive to sitting or sleeping for adults, while some of the higher end luxury options are some of the most comfortable couches on the market. As with anything, what you pay is what you get. If you are planning on using your floor sofa often and comfort is important to you, then we suggest purchasing one of the higher end sofas over the entry level or cheaper options. 

The different types and uses for a low sofa

A low sofa can be beneficial for a variety of different reasons and there are many different styles and options on the market to try to meet your specific needs. 

  • Sleeping and lounging – Some of the sofas on this list easily fold out from a sofa into a bed. These are great for sleeping additional guests or kids during a sleepover. The majority of these style of beds are on the more affordable side. 
  • Gaming/play area for kids – Some of the floor sofas are made with the gamer or kids rec room in mind. They are modular and can be rearranged for play, sleep, forts, etc…
  • Space-saving – A sofa that is on the ground utilizes the floor space to its maximum potential and allows for a smaller couch to be used more effectively. If you are short on space a floor sofa may be a perfect option. 
  • Minimalist design – One of the main reasons consumers choose to buy a low profile sofa that sits on the floor is due to its minimalist design and appearance. Minimalism has become very popular in the furniture and home decor industry and a couch thats sits on the floor is sure to be an eye-catching piece in any room.
