Pros
  • Beautiful design
  • High quality 100 percent linen upholstery
  • Will get better with age
Cons
  • Plan to steam clean it a bit more often than performance fabrics

When we’re talking the Best Linen Sofa, what do we want? First on my list is 100 percent linen, of course. It’s a classic home fabric, and it’s tough enough for all the tings you throw its way. We don’t necessarily need all these weird performance weaves and polyester blends. The performance fabrics make couches easier to spot clean, but nothing can replace real linen, real flax fibers.

Of the true linen couches, Soho Home makes the best one. The linen colors look great, though I’m partial to this sage green. The shape is simple, but elegant. And, this thing is built to last, so that $7,500 investment makes a little bit more sense.

If there’s any brand that has built its reputation on linen, it’s Jenni Kayne. Some of the stuff skews a bit feminine, but the airy Cali vibe is, on the whole, perfectly unisex. This couch especially has a great shape. It’s unassuming in your home, but it’s incredibly comfortable and inviting.

The slipcover on this couch is a 91/9 linen/nylon blend. So functionally, it looks like pure linen, but stains come out just that little bit easier.

Pros
  • Machine washable slipcover
  • Toss pillows are incredible comfortable
  • Single cushion gives it a nice shape
Cons
  • Feels cheaper than other options

Now, some of you might say: This couch looks basic. I want something normal and mid-century modern. I (enlightened) would buy this affordable sofa because it looks like it came straight out of my favorite home on Earth, Ricardo Bofill’s La Fabrica. The square shape, the giant toss pillows—brother if I had a this couch and access to some books, they could keep me here for weeks on end.

The other great thing about this couch is that the slipcover is machine washable. Instead of having to take it off, then get it dry cleaned or whatever, you can just run it through the wash. It’s way less fussy than a typical couch, and for that reason it’s a winner.

Also, some people might freak out over a $2,000 price tag, but let me tell you this: For fabrics this good, that’s about the best price you’ll find. There’s some decent cheap linen sofas on Amazon, but this sofa will last you twice as long.

Pros
  • Really great price for this couch
  • Incredibly durable build
  • High quality fabrics
Cons
  • Too big for some spaces

Speaking of deals, this Arhaus sofa is currently on sale for a great one. At $2,700, it’s $1,200 off retail. Sure, it’s still pricey, but this is a massive 124-inch wide sofa. Plus, Arhaus is one of our favorite online furniture stores because of the quality of its fabrics and the construction of its couches.

It’s sturdy, and the polyester-heavy blend is easier to keep clean than traditional linen. If you want a sofa that’ll last you decades, this is a great pick.

Pros
  • Beautiful wood frame is on full display
  • Big and plush seat cushions
  • Great price for a Made in America sofa
Cons
  • Linen weaves are beige-forward

The Citizenry has a great selection of home wares that are made by various small-studio artisans across the world. The brand’s furniture is made by a studio in Northern California. It’s a comfortable couch, and though the performance linen is good, this isn’t the largest sofa out there. This might be better for someone in a small space.

I just always feel the need to shout this one out, because that wood frame looks so, so good. Where a lot of furniture makers hide the frames, The Citizenry puts it out there, and the look isn’t strictly functional. It’s solid walnut, and in person, it just looks beautiful. If you want something a little different, this is a great one.

Dimensions 30.6”H x 88.5”W x 33.75”D

Pros
  • Recycled cotton feels every bit as natural as linen
  • More affordable thanks to the fabric
  • It’s such a comfortable sofa, especially as a sectional
Cons
  • Not actually linen

Floyd’s Sink Down Sectional is one of our favorite extra deep sofas. It’s insanely comfortable, it looks good, there are great color options, and the price is great. It’s damn near the perfect couch.

Only issue… there’s no linen option. But, but, but! The recycled cotton upholstery has the same natural feel as linen, just in a tighter weave. You can get a little bit more bang for your buck here, so if you want a cheap linen sofa, maybe consider Floyd’s recycled cotton.
