3 Affordable Ashley Furniture Sofas

Stationary, Sleeper and Reclining Sofas from Ashley


Ashley makes very affordable furniture, and these 3 Ashley sofas are no exception. That said, do not expect heirloom quality from Ashley. While its furniture is affordable, it isn't durable.

What Ashley Furniture has going for itself is easy availability, plenty of choice, and low prices. However, you cannot expect this furniture to hold up for a long time, or survive constant use.

These sofas are an option if you have a very limited furnishing budget and are in a hurry to set up a living room.

1. Durapella Basketweave - Olive

The Durapella Basketweave sofa has a casual contemporary style. It is styled for relaxation with a pillow-back design that would fit into most home décor with ease.

It has an attractive shape with flared arms and the welting gives it an extra bit of detail. Ashley has used its own Durapella fabric for covering. Durapella is Ashley’s name for 100% MicroDenier Polyester Suede, or what is more commonly known as Microfiber. Microfiber is highly stain resistant and wears well, being quite wrinkle-free as well.

Should you need additional seating, the Durapella Basketweave sofa has a matching loveseat in the same style and fabric. The loveseat is 70” wide.

Dimensions: 100"W x 41"D x 39"H. Cost: around $799

2. Delta – Havana Queen Sleeper

Sleepers are among the most useful pieces of furniture and this queen-sized sleeper from Ashley will work well in a traditional room coupled with dark wood tables.

The Delta - Havana sleeper has a three-over-three configuration and two loose cushions with tassels complete the traditional look. The arms are set back and rounded and the upholstery has a subtle pattern in warm earth tones. The pleated skirt completes the traditional look.

Dimensions: 87"W x 37"D x 39"H Cost: $799

3. Navigator - Saddle Reclining Sofa

Navigator - Saddle Reclining Sofa from Ashley has a worn leather-like look, which creates an easy going and lived in look for your room. This sofa can be used in a den or family room for TV watching or relaxing as it is a reclining sofa.

The style is contemporary, and the Microfiber fabric makes it easy to maintain in a high traffic area. Being a reclining sofa, it is a little bigger and heavier than stationary sofas, and in a fully reclined position it will require a little more room.

Dimensions: 90"W x 42"D x 41"H. Cost: Around $899
