Simply sit back, relax and browse through settees, daybeds, corner sofas and suites, in every vintage style you can think of, from industrial, to rustic Scandinavian and Art Nouveau.

Vintage sofas for sale at Vinterior

What’s your ideal vintage sofa? Perhaps you like cosy loveseats in soft, silky velvet. Or maybe a classic Chesterfield-style settee in fine leather is more your thing? Or does it have to be something in a Danish style by a top mid-century designer like Børge Mogensen or Hans J Wegner? Whatever type of vintage-style sofa makes your heart sing, you’ll find it here. You could even find a couch that needs a bit of TLC, so why not have a read of our guide to reupholstering a sofa?

If you’re not quite sure what you’re looking for—no worries! Have a browse through our eclectic selection of second-hand vintage sofas for sale for inspiration. Each has been hand-picked by sellers of beautiful furniture located in the UK and Europe. We’ve got fine 18th century sofas with gilt details and shapely feet, art deco style couches oozing with 1930s French charm, mid-century black sofas, as well as chic 1980s settees featuring soft, spongy cushions just waiting to be sunk into.

Where can I find a great vintage couch?

One of the best things about vintage-style sofas is the variability between designs, there are just so many different little fine details to choose from. You can choose between different overall shapes and sizes, with different styles of armrests and back heights. Some sofas and vintage couches have visible legs or frames made of wood or metal, whereas others sit directly on the ground. Wing-back sofas are your go-to for making a statement with your seating—these generally have a taller back and a splayed shape. On the other end of the spectrum, boxier sofas create a more minimalist feel. Look for upholstery features like button detailing and printed fabrics that elevate these pieces. Wood may be polished, carved or inlaid to add elegance.

Whether you’re after a vintage two-seater softer than the clouds, a low backless sofa or a quirky asymmetrical sofa, have a browse to find the perfect piece in our collection. Pro tip—whatever style you land on, be sure to take a look at our vintage coffee tables range and ensure you’re set for somewhere to put your cuppa.

Why buy second-hand vintage sofas?

What size is your perfect vintage sofa for the heart of your home? You’ll find compact two-seaters alongside huge corner sofas, suites and vintage couches in our wide selection. Corner sofas have plenty of space for the whole family to get comfy. Togo Sets by French designer Michel Ducaroy have that ultra-luxurious, pillowy feel. To get the absolute most out of flexibility, modular sofas feature several individual parts that can be arranged to suit your layout.

A sofa bed is also a great option if you’re short on space but like to have guests over. A 1960s piece by the famous Liverpool-based furniture maker Guy Rogers is a fantastic option for a mid-century-themed spare room. Daybeds can also be used for sleeping, with larger, flatter sitting sections that resemble mattresses. The sheer number of vintage sofas available is reason enough to buy a second-hand sofa we think. Plus, it’s a sustainable option that supports small-scale sellers. Shop the collection now.
