20 Best Victorian Couches

You: like impactful, unique style. Victorian Couches: totally dramatic. In other words, if you’re looking for a whimsical, edgy, or romantic piece for your favorite space, look no further than this list of the 20 best Victorian couches.

Victorian couches have a bold, attention-grabbing look that steals the limelight. Borrowing design influence from the 19th-century period, the style is rich with moody colors and opulent fabrics that pour on old-world charm.

Things To Consider With Buying Victorian Couches

20 Best Victorian Couches

Victorian couches may be a particular style, but there is tons of variation from couch to couch within it. You’ll see what I mean when you take a look at our top 20 picks, but since you’re already here, you probably already know the style is big on jewel-toned hues, alluring curves, and intricate details like tufting.

When it comes to buying the best Victorian couches, aside from the actual look of your couch, there are a couple of things you’ll want to keep in mind while you make your decision. From size to price to portability, I’ll walk you through the list below.

Size

The size will be one of the first things you need to think about when choosing a new couch. If your home doesn’t have space for a sectional, then you can immediately cross those off your list of prospects.

In addition to the actual space in your home, you must look at the dimensions of the couches you think might work. If the dimensions are too wide or long for your room, you may end up with too little walk-around space—not to mention getting the thing through your door frame.

Some apartment door frames are notoriously narrow. Always measure first before falling in love with a couch that simply won’t fit.

Material

The best Victorian couches are made with a few different materials. Some use leather while others are upholstered with linen or velvet. Of course, all of these materials have very different feels and maintenance processes, and so depending on your preference, one may be more appealing than another.

When considering which couch material will work best in your home, I’d recommend thinking about how much it will be used and who will be sitting on it. Since velvet is somewhat fussy, if you have a family of four plus two dogs, you may want to choose something easier to clean.

Price

Since the best Victorian couches come in all shapes and sizes, prices will vary. Depending on what you’re looking for, keep in mind the value that comes with each of them.

If leather is a priority of yours, considering the material is said to last for 20+ years, paying a higher price may make more sense to you. Looking for a sofa with a chaise or sofa bed? Either of these adds value to your couch and makes paying a higher price more understandable.

At the base of sofa shopping, you want to be sure you’re getting a good deal, but quality, function, and materials all play a role in the overall price you pay. Staying within budget is always a smart idea, and I have tons of picks ahead for every price range.

Weight

Some couches are surprisingly light. Others, you couldn’t lift them if you tried. Why does weight matter? If you’ve ever had to move a couch from your yard to your living room, you’ll know.

Weight doesn’t just have to do with the actual couch you buy though, it also has to do with its weight capacity. Have a large family? Piling onto a couch with a 250 lb capacity won’t do it any good. 

Neglecting to look at the weight capacity of your preferred sofa means that the materials and frame could break down more quickly than you’d like. It could mean the whole thing collapses on the first sit.

Durability

What your couch is made from plays a big role in how long it’s going to be around. Cheap wooden frames are the least durable, but so is plastic-based material like faux leather that rips easily.

If you’re interested in keeping your couch around and looking great for more than a few years, opt for a hardwood or metal frame and durable fabrics like leather or microfiber.

Portability

Moving your couch from room to room or maybe from your old home to your new one is a lot easier if the thing is moving-day friendly. Whether it’s because they’re lightweight, have easy to assemble and disassemble pieces, or are slim enough to fit through any door frame, checking out the dimensions and weight of your new sofa won’t be a waste of time.

You’ll be thanking yourself when it comes time to carry it down a flight of stairs or after you realize that your new home has curiously slim door frames.

#1 – Claycomb 91” Round Arm Sofa with Reversible Cushions

Claycomb 91'' Round Arm Sofa with Reversible Cushions
Claycomb 91” Round Arm Sofa with Reversible Cushions

Brand: Lark Manor™

Rated 4.7 out of 5 stars

Price: $989.99

Description

This product begins with milling and drying their own hardwoods at their lumberyard facility to ensure that their frames are built to last without warping, twisting, or cracking. From there, the lumber travels to one of their frame shops where the wood is cut, shaped, and assembled into the highest quality frames. The foam and fiber parts, built with eco-friendly practices and recycled materials are cut to size at one of two nearby foam processing plants. These components are then joined in one manufacturing center where they are assembled into your piece of furniture. Their fabric, sourced from around the world, selected for its quality, style, and value, and stored in their climate-controlled fabric warehouse, is then cut, sewn, and applied to create your finished piece of upholstered furniture.

What’s Included?

  • Toss Pillow

Features

  • Springs are machine tested for durability and lasting support. A sturdy frame provides an anchor for good seating support, while the filling or cushion, augments it. In their frames, 8-gauge no-sag wide loop sinuous springs are “s” shaped and run from the front of the seat to the back. An additional 16-gauge stake wire is attached across from side to side to support these springs. This process is done by pneumatically clamping the springs together to tie the individual springs into one unit to prevent the springs from separating or twisting. Back spring clips are autolocking and are made from nylon to help reduce noise. Back springs are 12-gauge sinuous wire. Their seat spring clips are constructed from metal to provide strength and are nylon-lined, reducing noise. This makes for a strong seat and provides superior support.
  • Seat cushions and frame parts are fabricated in their own foam fabrication facilities so that they can control the quality and feel of each piece. Cushion thickness is kept at a minimum of 4.5″ to promote comfort and support. Cushions are fabricated from superior (1.9 lb. density, 34-lb. compression) foam and wrapped in 1 oz. or 1.6 oz Dacron for comfort and protection. All foams are made with environmentally-friendly polyol derived from soybeans and castor beans that require up to 60% less fossil fuel resources than petroleum-based polyols (for every 11 pounds of plant-based polyol, a gallon of crude oil is saved. This results in 36% less global warming emissions). They monitor test results from every shipment, every day to maintain consistency.

How to Choose the Best Victorian Couches

20 Best Victorian Couches

You know what to consider and you know what your options are, but there’s one more step until you find the best Victorian couches for your home, and that’s taking a minute to consider your needs. We’ll break the process down into four easy steps:

  1. Determine your budget

The best Victorian couches come with a range of price tags. Starting at under $700 and going up to over $3,000, there’s something for everyone on this list. Think about what you need from your couch and then choose something in your price range.

Some companies may offer payment plans to help you pay for your new couch over time, so that’s something to think about if you fall in love with a particular style.

  1. Figure out what you need it for

Where is your new sofa going? In your bedroom? In the living room? Think about how often it will be used and who is going to be using it. These factors will impact the type, size, and material of the couch you buy. If you have pets, choosing a velvet couch for your living room may not work out as you hope.

Since certain materials are easier to clean and more durable, the amount of use your couch will get should determine the type you buy.

  1. Consider what it’s made from

Leather is more durable than faux leather is, so after you decide what you need your couch for, think about what kind of material would suit that best. Microfiber is another durable and easy-to-clean material and has a soft feel and luxury look without being too costly.

Many of the best Victorian couches are made from velvet, and if you’re here, there’s a good chance you like that kind of look. A gorgeous and unique material, keep in mind it’s a little fussier than other options but is relatively strong, durable, and can stay fresh-looking for years if cared for properly.

  1. Check out warranty details

The best Victorian couches come from different brands, so of course, they come with different warranties. If you love the security you get from a 5-year warranty, seek out options that have one. If you don’t mind paying for repairs that happen due to manufacturing defects, then a warranty won’t matter as much.

FAQ

Are Victorian Sofas Comfortable?

People choose Victorian sofas because of how they look, while comfort is sort of like a consolation prize. That’s not to say the best Victorian couches can’t be comfortable, because they definitely can—especially when it comes to the fabric they’re made from. Upholstered with soft fabrics like velvet, they’re a joy just to feel.

Typically, Victorian couches have firm cushions that lend to a structured overall look, but you won’t find that throughout all of these designs. Many of them have down and foam-based pillows that are super comfy to sit on. So the answer to this question is: it varies.

Paying attention to the materials the best Victorian couches are made from, along with what the cushions are stuffed with, will tell you how comfortable the couch will be.

What Couch Material Lasts the Longest?

Couches are made with all kinds of materials—polyester, microfiber, linen, velveteen… the options are endless. Since the main mission of buying a couch is to use it, you’re probably going to want to know what materials last the longest.

In all of our research, leather comes out on top every time. Said to offer 20-25+ years of use, it’s an incredibly durable material that holds up well to everyday wear and tear, stains, kids, and dogs. Easy to clean and care for, the material is a top choice for those who want to invest in a quality couch.

What Is Victorian Era Furniture?

If you’re a fan of romantic, creative style, Victorian furniture is a great pick. Getting its name for the type of design used when Queen Victoria was in reign (1837-1901), it includes intricate wood-carved details, curvy lines, glamorous accents, and rich colors.

The first style of furniture to ever be manufactured, it’s a historic style that brings something special to the modern home. Deep-seated couches were huge in the Victorian period, along with armless lounges and short legs.

Made with solid woods like walnut and oak, this list of the best Victorian couches follows similar design influences, but not all are strict about solid wood construction. You’ll find a few modern touches throughout our top 20 picks (cup holders, USB charging ports, etc.) added to give you the comforts of the modern day with the style of the 19th century.
