Where can you buy a (really) long sofa?
IF YOU NEED A LONG COUCH, YOU CAN BUY ONE AT COCOCOHOME
As homes expand, and dreamers dream, extra-long sofas are an up-and-coming trend in living rooms these days. When most movie theaters are converting to a recliner-style seat, it’s no wonder we are seeing this move at the home as well. This may be due to the increasing trend of open-concept living, with wider open spaces in the home. One thing is for sure: everybody likes more space. The longer sofa style speaks to an elegance, decadence, even.
An extra long sofa would be considered a couch with an overall length over 100 inches. More and more of our customers are seeking a couch 100+ inches long. Why? It allows for a better home viewing experience for families, as well as more comfortable entertaining. Realistically, the average 88-inch sofa is considered a 2.5 seater. There are three back pillows but only two people can comfortable sit on the sofa, as most people don’t necessarily want to touch others for an entire movie or party. With a long sofa, homeowners can entertain larger groups, or get a cleaner look than having multiple sofas in a space. It’s the perfect choice if you have a narrow but long living room, or a large open space. Restoration Hardware makes some really long sofas and has been an important influencer in the trend toward XL Couches, but no one makes as many variations of XL sofas as COCOCOHome. Not only can we make our sofas in more length options, but we can also make them longer. Our production model allows us to scale sofas in a large variety of ways, allowing you to get the perfect fit you need for your home or business.
EXTRA LONG CHESTERFIELD SOFAS
EXTRA LONG TRADITIONAL STYLE SOFAS
It is not just our classic button-tufted sofas like the chesterfield that can be made into oversized sofas. Many of our styles can be a very long couch. For example, our Lexington (L) which is similar to RH’s Lancaster model, and the Studio Lexington (not pictured) which has a smaller rolled arm. Below is a photo of the Matthews (R), which is similar to the Monroe in overall shape, but the “T” back cushion gives it a more traditional feel.
EXTRA LONG CONTEMPORARY MODERN SOFAS
The Monroe (Left) is easily one of our most popular styles, with its clean, easy lines, wide-track arms and low, block legs. It tends to suit a wide variety of interior design styles. Like many simply designed contemporary furniture pieces today, it has a sort of timeless feel to it, working easily in both traditional settings as well as industrial or mid-century homes. We can do the Monroe in an extra long sofa, as well as the Landis (Center, pictured at 100″ x 40″), Vale (Right, pictured at 121″ x 35″ with Quinn metal brushed legs) and more contemporary styles. With COCOCOHome, you have a LOT of options.
Extra Long Mid-Century Modern Sofas
Our Arden (L), Belmont (Center), and Clark (R) styles all share a frame, and each of those can be made into long, oversized sofas. Through our website, you can order one of these styles at 86″, 93″, 100″, 107″, 114″ and 121″. With this mid-century style, you could design a sofa up to 163″! We also offer multiple seating depths as well as leg options. You can’t get that level of customization at Article or even Interior Define.
WHAT’S THE RIGHT SIZE?
That really depends on your space. These are not apartment sofas or a couch you’ll want to bring up a small stairwell. Long sofas work best in spaces that have a straight shot in through the door, a wide door, or tall ceilings. If you don’t have any of those but still love the long look, we could modify the sofa into a more modular piece.
Are you thinking of buying a longer sofa but aren’t sure where to start? Do you need a longer length than what is available on the website?
