We all know it . . . sofa shopping is annoying, to say the least. Darryl and Jessica Sharpton, founders of Albany Park, felt the same. Not only is in-store shopping quickly becoming a thing of the past, but so many brands have far too many options and even longer wait times for shipping. This is something the Sharptons felt passionate about and decided to solve the problem for themselves. We interviewed the couple on how they made the internet's most talked-about sofas, and you can read the full article here.
The brand's pieces are thoughtfully made and designed and even packed into space-conscious boxes, making it easy to navigate apartment stairwells and beyond. If you need even more convincing, we're here to help you decide on the best one for your space. The brand features picks like its big, plush-like sectional that even come in a pit shape and more trendy pieces like a cool bouclé choice.
Which Albany Park Sofa Should You Buy?
Now that you've narrowed in on a brand, you can think about what will fit into your lifestyle. Albany Park offers three sofa styles, and each one comes in a choice of silhouette, fabric, and leg finish. Firstly, think about the space you have to work with and measure. This will determine whether you can get something large or a more space-saving option. It also offers its pieces in four materials: its durable and easy-to-clean fabric, a pretty velvet, beautiful leather, and the Park sofa is available in a cozy bouclé. Depending on your lifestyle, like if you have kids or are a pet owner, one might be more practical than the other. You can also consider the style. The Albany sofa is more of a midcentury-modern style, where the Park sofa has a cool modern look to it. Our favorite, though, is the Kova Pit ($3,520, originally $4,700), which has that cloud-like look you just can't beat. Keep reading to find your match.
