Anyone who has tried to furnish a small space before knows that there isn’t always room for a sofa. When the area is smaller, it is best to look to alternative options for seating. Some of the more popular options include benches, chaises, daybeds, and settees. Each of these options can usually sit two people, and sometimes more.

These options are all very versatile and come in many stylish designs and colors.
