Shopping for your first couch can be #stressful. We know, we’ve been there. Between price restraints, style demands, and space limitations, it can feel like finding your freaking soulmate. Just call us Tinder for couches. We’ve found all the best starter couches under $1000 right here.
If you want your first couch to make a bit of a statement, we couldn’t suggest this pick more. It has the look of a super classy leather couch, with the price tag of its vegan leather counterpart. It’s called being green, not cheap, duh. The white is definitely a statement, but the black is also a great slightly more muted option.

This vintage-inspired floral loveseat is everything. Especially if you’re shopping for that first time sofa in a teeny metropolitan apartment. Space is precious, but style should be a priority. We are majorly obsessed with this cute option under $1000. We can already see ourselves all snuggled up with a candle and blanket in the winter and a mason jar of fresh blooms in the summer.

You probably thought a gorg velvet couch like this was out of your price range. But you’d be wrong.
