What is the deepest sofa available?

August 31, 2020


If you feel that depth is the most important feature for your new sofa, look for a European style sofa with a 15 or 16 inch seat height.

That is 4 – 5 inches lower than most American style furniture and requires an additional 4 – 5″ of seat depth to compensate. In addition:

  • Sofas with tight backs or multi-pillow backs require greater depth than sofas with loose cushion backs like Simplicity Sofas.
  • Seating that is pitched (the front of the seat is higher than the rear) will “feel” deeper than an identical seat depth that is not pitched.
