Promising reviews: "I will never regret purchasing this couch! Quality leather. Fantastic price! Gorgeous deep, rich color (cognac) everyone who sees it oohs and ahhs!" —Valerie Teal
"Best damn couch EVER!!! The quality is superb. I love the look of it. Yes, the firmness is a factor but I want that in a couch. Wow! So impressed by this piece. And suddenly I LOVE hanging out in my living room. If you’ve had this hanging around in your shopping cart for a while because you’re not quite sure, REST ASSURED…it’s solid! ❤️❤️❤️" —MP NY
Get it from Amazon for $1,319.77.
Promising review: "I own two of these (working on a third lol). I don't know if this is only for the leather furniture or something they introduced in 2023, but the cognac version comes with a zipper halfway up the couch so you can zip the cushions to the couch to prevent the cushions from sagging. Absolute game changer!! Overall we love these couches. They are huge, super comfy, easy to clean and high quality. The leather looks legit from what I can see and it smells like it as well. Not sure if the couch itself is, but the cushions are definitely leather. I would say buy this couch if you want to put your head back and sink into heaven. It's meant to be comfortable and not for conversing with guests. Also, my mom slept on this one day and she says it sleeps well, so you can absolutely use the 89-inch as a backup bed." —Mooey
Get it from Amazon for $1,679.41+ (available in two sizes).
Promising review: "The furniture arrived in time. It is of great quality and looks luxurious. Very happy with the purchase." —Asheville
Get it from Target for $2,638.99 (also available in blue).
FYI, charme is a full-aniline leather that's smooth to the touch and left untreated for a natural look.
Promising review: "This sofa is gorgeous. You can't this kind of solid wood and leather construction at this price point anywhere, especially if you want a well-designed piece of furniture." —Christian C.
Get it from Article for $2,099 (also available in tan).
Promising review: "Love this sofa! It has clean lines, with firm, comfortable cushions, and seems like it will hold up well. The color is more of a clay color than cognac. The color of the sofa in the picture in my review is exactly how it looks in person." —Minah
Get it from Wayfair for $1,599.99 (originally $2,790.73; also available in ivory and gray).
Promising review: "I was concerned to order this leather couch online since there were no reviews and it’s a big purchase for me, but it impressed me. The couch is identical to what you see online or even better. I ordered the genuine leather one. The product page did not describe much about the leather, but I can feel it's luxury and premium quality. The leather is soft and buttery, and the color is natural and restful. Now it’s my favorite place in the house to stay. I can spend the whole day lying on it." —James F
Get it from Amazon for $1,857.40 (also available in vegan leather).
Promising review: "Four years with this couch, no regrets. I felt compelled to share that this couch has delivered on and exceeded all expectations for price point, comfort, style and an attractive natural ware. It may have a low back, but it’s deep, we genuinely love this couch. It’s aging nicely too. We went back and forth on a lot of leather couches from similar brands (some of which family members have purchased the other brands' leather couch) I had to come here and say ours has by far held up the nicest and longest. We love this couch — a great long-term piece for a fair price." —Chris
Get it from CB2 for $2,999 (also available in gray or brown).
Get it from Apt 2B for $3,298 (originally $4,928; also available in olive and steel blue).
Promising review: "I love this sofa. I purchased the black one. The leather is beautiful and the tufting makes it a classic. The couch is very firm. I don’t think I could sleep on it like my last Wayfair comfy sofa. Don’t get me wrong, this new sofa is comfortable for sitting. The bolster pillows are a little weird. I don’t use them for comfort. They add to the aesthetics of the sofa, though. Took me longer to get the sofa out of the box than than to put on the feet — the only assembly required! Very happy with my purchase." —Lori
Get it from Wayfair for $920 (originally $2,550; also available in black).
You can get the matching recliner chair here!
Promising reviews: "Worth every penny! The leather is soft as butter and the dual recline is perfect!" —Denise O.
"I rarely leave reviews but had to comment on the Conrad couch we purchased. I love the bigger couch cushions and the light grey color is so beautiful. It cleans really easy especially with two young kids and a large dog. The Conrad is so incredibly comfortable especially when using the recliner. I'm so happy with our purchase!" —Melinda M.
Get it from Raymour & Flanigan for $2,932.37 (originally $3,449.85; also available in brown).
Promising review: "It’s so cute and pretty. Luxurious leather, pretty easy to put together (I built it alone and I was already injured with an ankle sprain, and the building process didn’t hurt my body more than it was). It took me a bit longer to put together because of my ankle but I did it about 1–1.5 hours. Sometimes it’s hard to find a sofa that feels good and I find this one to be comfy — and better with pillows. I also like that if I want to change the size of the sofa someday I can because of the way it’s built. And! I wanted a sofa for my office, which is a tight squeeze for other sofas. I like that now I know I have a sofa that I can bring anywhere with me — it will fit through any door, in any tight hallway to get to its destination. And of course the best feature is that the furniture is nontoxic." —Catherine T.
Get it from Burrow for $3,990 (available in three leath

Promising review: "At first I was doubtful considering the price. I also wish the instructions were more detailed. But once I figured how to put it together it exceeded my expectations. The structure is very sturdy and comfortable. I would definitely buy again!" —Delorce F
Get it from Amazon for $389.99 (also available in black).
Promising reviews: "Couch is really comfortable, feels like real leather and it's easy to assemble." —Alexander
"I am really enjoying the new couch. I fell asleep on it the first night by accident, to my surprise, I did not have any issues of discomfort when I awoke. The assembly was quick and easy. I call this couch my comfortable Lego furniture due to the easiness. I'm glad I made the decision to purchase it." —Marshea
Get it from Walmart for $348 (originally $449, also available in grey and brown).
Promising review: "Easy to assemble. I did it myself and I am not at all handy. Extremely comfortable. Sturdy. Great size — probably a little wider than a regular twin. Back of futon converts to flat with absolute ease. A friend is buying one for her son's room. They were equally impressed." —Michael Capace
