Looking for a loungy sofa? Here’s all you need to know about the deep-seat comfort of our Blumen collection, a line of sofas and sectionals that feature ample leg room for all the snuggle-uppers out there. 

Deep sofa measurements: grab that measuring tape

So…how deep is a “deep” seat? 

First, note that seat depth—the front of the seat to the back cushion—is distinct from overall depth, the total distance between the back and front of the sofa. An average sofa’s seat depth ranges from 20 to 24 inches, but you’ll find lots of options beyond this scope. 

Sofas with a shorter seat depth of 20” to 22” tend to do well for folks who like to sit upright. If you prefer to curl up with space to tuck your legs in, though, a deeper sofa with a 24” to 28” seat will do you right: those extra inches are the special ingredient that make our Blumen sofas and sectionals look and feel luxuriously comfy and spacious. Bonus: many of our Blumen models offer the choice between a seat depth of 24” and 28”, so you can choose just how loungy you want to get. 

Look, vibe, and customization 

While sofas with shorter seat depths often deliver a more formal or traditional look, that doesn’t mean a deep sofa has to be reserved for informal hangout spaces—and if you’re looking to bring an extra cozy feel to your living room, a deep sectional or sofa could be the perfect way to do it. An ultimate entertainer, Blumen’s wide arms also function as built-in end tables, so everyone has room to rest their arm / drink / noggin! An optional, built-in shelf lets you store books, magazines, and other bits you want to tuck away or show off. 

Blumen’s pinched seams complement its tailored, modern shape, and you can choose from a wide range of fabrics and leathers (including natural, cleanable, vegan, and pet-friendly options) and cushion fillings to achieve the look and support you want. Order free fabric samples here!
