A Brit by birth, the chesterfield sofa is something of an anomaly. One minute this used sofa can feel grandly traditional, while the next it can read as unexpectedly funky. What gives? Well, we think it’s the way this vintage sofa’s boxy silhouette—similar to the tuxedo sofa’s in that it features a leveled back and arms—is contrasted by playful details like scrolled arm caps and all-over tufting. Yes, this sofa will read as masculine when upholstered in cognac leather and placed in a lodge setting, but when swathed in a pretty pastel velvet it’ll feel whimsical and feminine. And cloaked in an uproarious red leather? Well, it will feel delightfully offbeat. In fact, the only thing mandatory for this used sofa is a large room, since thanks to a deep seat, it packs one colossal footprint. ENGLISH ROLL ARM SOFA If you’re looking to give your space a sophisticated yet frolicsome note, try an English roll arm sofa. In congruency with its name, this used sofa showcases abbreviated, bun-like arms paired with plush, sink-in-and-stay-awhile cushions and turned spindle legs. While the roll arms don’t run the length of the entire sofa seat, they are amply cushioned, making them a keystone of the design (and allowing them the ability to buoy your head during mid-afternoon nap sessions). Among our favorite things about the English roll arm sofa is its ability to feel simultaneously refined and casual. Stylistically, this used sofa is the equivalent of white jeans—elegant and easy, even if it’s upholstered in dark charcoal linen. MID-CENTURY SOFA Sometimes you want a sofa that’s just that—a sofa. One with no bells and whistles to get in the way of some deep R and R. That sofa? A Mid-Century sofa. Featuring a low, skimming profile, the Mid-Century sofa us an ode to functional simplicity. Even further upping its game? Mid-Century are typically outfitted in durable fabrics like twill, wool, or cotton—fabrics that fight stains in spades. With credentials like these, we deem these used sofas qualified for everything from family rooms to playrooms. Even better is the fact that these sofas can pack a small footprint, making them perfect for tucking into compact spaces. No, these sofas aren’t the kind you’ll likely be napping on for hours, but for little ones—in the words of Goldilocks—they’re just right. TRACK ARM SOFA Need a used sofa that allows you to multitask? By which we mean, a used sofa that allows you to comfortably sit while shooting off an email and catching up on The Bachelor? If so, then try a track arm sofa! Just as its name suggests, this used sofa features wide, spacious arms. The extra wide girth makes this sofa’s arms perfect for balancing a laptop, remote, and maybe even a container of ramen (you know, for those nights when at-the-table is simply not an option). In addition to the arms, this sofa showcases a blocky, rectangular silhouette that feels perfectly modern. Find a used sofa with a track arm shape you love, but upholstery that’s struggling? Lucky for you, used track arm sofas are often the perfect shape for slipcovers.

It is often the upholstery which shows most of the wear and it is, therefore, possible to have antique sofas and chaises reupholstered. Either restore them to their former glory or use fabrics, which can give the piece a more modern look. A genuine antique piece of furniture has real history behind it and a quality of craftsmanship that cannot be found in the many reproductions which are also available.

Search for an antique sofa like a serious collector and you can pay $30,000 at auction for a Duncan Phyfe American Federal example from the early 19th century. Or you can go to an estate or yard sale, or browse Etsy and eBay , and pick up a settee that a great- granddaughter is anxious to ditch for a few hundred dollars. Also worth considering: perches that were part of a style revival—like Darryl Carter’s American Empire-style find, which was inspired by sofas that date to the mid 19th century but was produced in the early 20th. These often cost less than the more-precious forbearers.
