We’ve rounded up the best online sofa companies that have been disrupting the industry over the past few years. It goes like this - you select your dream couch, it arrives in a box and then you quickly assemble it. Hot damn, you’re good to go. Get ready to kick back and celebrate the fact that you’ve saved yourself a painful shopping trip to Ashley’s Home Furniture. Because with these brands, the deal doesn’t “end tomorrow” – it’s every. single. day. Truth, that’s what happens when you eliminate the retail markup.



Founders of Article came up with their business concept while adventuring in the Arctic Circle (go figure). They’ve since built a company founded on the idea of simplicity and efficiency, known for outstanding quality and attention to detail. By eliminating inefficiencies in the supply chain, they’re able to offer a hell of a better deal.
