5 compact corner sofas

A selection of designs that are ideal for a small living room or snug

By Jason Podesta |

Small corner sofas can help you maximise space in a small apartment, or create a cosy nook in a snug or cinema room. An L-shape sofa might not seem like the obvious choice for a compact space, but it will take up less room than a two seater and an accent chair, for example, while still offering ample seating.

A corner sofa is also ideal for open-plan and broken-plan living, since it helps to create zones and natural partitions in bigger living spaces. Opt for a corner sofa with a chaise if it’s less about providing seats and more about lounging. You can usually choose a right- or left-hand chaise, depending on the configuration of your living room.

The following designs are proving popular on furnishings website, which showcases collections from more than 110 retailers.
