There's no need to lie - chaise lounge sofas are simply the best. They offer unparalleled comfort and can be used in a variety of ways to make your living space more comfortable and functional. If you're thinking about purchasing a chaise lounge sofa, there are a few things you should consider before making your purchase. In this blog post, we'll address several of the different types of chaise lounge sofas that we sell at Couch Potatoes, and we'll give you some tips on what to look for before buying one.

Tips for Buying a Sofa

Chaise lounge sofas come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so it's important to measure the space you have available before making your purchase. Be sure to consider how you'll be using the chaise lounge sofa - will it be for relaxing or reading? Or will it serve more as an extra seat for guests? Chaise lounge sofas can be a great addition to any living space, but it's important to choose the right one for your needs.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for chaise lounge sofas:

  • Decide on what room you are going to put your chaise lounge sofa in. The living room or family room seems like the obvious choice, but sometimes even stand-alone chaises look nice at the end of a bed or in a home office.
  • Choose a chaise lounge sofa that has enough room for you to lie down on it and relax. chaise lounge sofas can be a great addition to any living space, but they're not always comfortable if there isn't enough room for you to sit or stand up comfortably while using them.
  • Consider the color and materials used in chaise lounge sofas - do you want something neutral like black or white? Or would prefer something more colorful like reds, blues, greens? Couch Potatoes has several options for customization if you want to take a look.

Top 3 Chaise Sofas at Couch Potatoes

Now that you've given some thought to what kind of chaise sofa will work best in your home, here are some of the best chaises of Couch Potatoes:

1. Mesa Reversible Chaise Sofa

Now, this is a cozy sofa. No thin layers of cushions to sacrifice style for comfort. No thin armrests that dig into your forearms. The contemporary frame and deep cushioned seats invite you to sink right in. A feature of sofa chaises is the ability to lounge vertically or horizontally. This chaise has a high back and armrests for added support, so you can really stretch out in either direction. The plush cushions are perfect for taking a nap or reading your favorite book. Finally, the solid wood frame ensures that this chaise will last through years of use.

2. Track Reversible Sofa Chaise

This sofa chaise looks similar to the Mesa, but it is cheaper and has a sleeker, bolder design. The namesake comes from its track arms. A track arm is a low, flat arm on a couch. It takes the traditional arm of a couch and makes it more modern to fit in your home [source:]. This particular Track Reversible Sofa is in the color Bennett Onyx, and would look great with some comfy bold pillows that stand out in contrast to the dark fabric. It's a sofa that will fit in your home no matter what vision you have for your interior, and that's why we love it!

3. Wallace Untufted Reversible Chaise Sofa

Made in Austin, the Wallace is Couch Potatoes' longest-selling collection, and for good reason. The biggest difference from the other sofa chaises on this list is noticeably those thin tapered legs. The style is very mid-century modern, with a simple, sleek design that appears as if it were plucked from the 1950s (with more trendy fabric options).

As you can see, many vintage sofas have that straight frame with simple lines and shapes. The fabrics, however, look a bit gaudy and chaotic compared to the popular colors of modern furniture. Maybe you like the look lot of loud colors and patterns that you can find on vintage couches? That's fine. We're just saying our Wallace Untufted Reversible Chaise Sofa has the charm of a vintage sofa, with more appealing colors to the average eye.

Just because it has a classic design doesn't mean the features are stuck in the past. The construction is eco-friendly, made from plywood and solid wood frames. With cleanable and breathable hypoallergenic fabrics, there are no risks to your household. This sofa chaise is timeless, and you're still able to do comfortably what sofa chaises are for: lounging.

What does a reversible chaise sofa mean?

All of these sofa chaises that were mentioned have the word "reversible" in their names. What does this mean? A chaise sofa is a combination of two styles: chaise and sofa. The reversible aspect means that it can be used as a chaise lounge or a traditional sofa. This is a great option for people who want the functionality of both pieces, without having to purchase them separately.

It makes sofa chaises more versatile than a traditional sofa, or sectional. You have more freedom to decide which side you want the chaise portion of your sofa on, to fit into any room of your home. This is a great choice for people who like to switch things up often, or are indecisive about their décor.

Are sofa chaises worth it?

The chaise sofa can be a great addition to your home if you're looking for more seating or want furniture that is versatile and fits in any room. It's worth it if you are willing to spend the money on a chaise sofa rather than buying two separate pieces of furniture. It may work better for your space and style, so it's definitely worth considering if you're in the market for chaises or sofas.


If you were curious about any of these sofa chaise options, visit our Couch Potatoes stores in South and Central Austin. It's better to see the couch you want, feel the quality of the fabric, and visualize it in your space. Also, maybe you're in the market for a simple stand-alone chaise. We have those too!
