If you ever plan on having friends stay over at your apartment, typically your only options are a sleeper-sofa or futon. Two things that usually often look like they belong in a dorm room rather than your stylish apartment or home. That's why this convertible sofa is a game changer. The faux-leather finish and gorgeous eucalyptus legs are so beautiful that the convertible bed is just an added bonus.

If you're looking to skirt the lines between modern and contemporary or subtle and statement, this sofa is the creme de la creme. The color is neutral and blends in with its surroundings while the denim fabric is an unexpected twist on a sofa you would expect to be velvet or leather.

Four words: modular recycled leather sofa. Okay, so technically speaking if you were to buy all four pieces of this modular set, you'd spend more than $1,000. However, buying all four pieces isn't necessary and the unique concept of this sofa makes it the perfect pick for your apartment.

Nothing says "stylish space-saver" like a sofa/side table combo that also happens to be one of the most beautiful sofas on this list. With a hint of Scandinavian elegance, this miracle sofa also is convertible, meaning it turns into a plush bed/bedside table combo as well. Your guests will thank you.

If you are really cramped on space but don't want to sacrifice beauty for a couch that will fit, this is your best option. At just over 4 feet wide, you can still fit two people comfortably or lounge on it yourself. Plus, the tufted gray finish and bucket-seat design make it a beautiful piece for any space.

This elegant loveseat made from lighter recycled leather with chrome legs would add the perfect amount of sophistication to a small living space. Plus, if you graduate to a larger living area in your next home, it'd pair beautifully with a larger fabric or velvet sofa.
