Unusual sofas: 20 creative designs
Enhance your boring living room with an unusual sofa and instantly create a fresh, refreshing look. For this to happen, do not forget to go with safe, neutral sofa designs. Instead, be creative and buy a sofa that does not harmonize with the rest of the decor in your living room. But add pillows or blankets that match the current decor. That makes the color-coordinated trick, but makes the sofa the main attraction of the interior. It would be much more exciting and fun to go to a room with an unusual sofa that gives your surroundings an extra degree of imagination, and the following 20 creative designs will do just that.
Everyone is trying to be outside a bit these days and this very unusual sofa is so busy! Even the cushions add to the aesthetics and appear like eggs stowed in a pile of twigs. This rustic-style sofa is made of driftwood and old boards with a calf seat.
There’s nothing like a piece of furniture telling a story, and the Mad Cow Sofa by Talents Design Gallery does just that, though the story changes a little as soon as I get the name, bubbles and hoofbones foam a sense of fairytale fun until you find the name again. This means that this sofa embodies the essence of opposites within a formation and that is very creative.
Botan’s flower arrangement is pretty cool.
If you like a good geometric design, the Float Sofa by Sancal with headrest is just right for you. The extraordinary sofa was designed by Karim Rashid to serve the dual purpose of behaving as a screen and creating an oasis of privacy, away from the hustle and bustle of life around you.
Float is a sleek design whose components can be tailored to your individual taste. Whether you prefer a monochromatic composition or a composition filled with contrasting elements, the geometry keeps the vignette exciting and, in any case, unusual.
The deep tufting in lool serves the dual purpose of serving as a support for the armrests and backrests, as well as an integrated side table, and while the side table is a really creative idea if you do not want to use it, prefer lean on lool, the table can be easily removed and the backrests rearranged.

The name Autumntime says it all. What’s better than sitting on a park bench in the fall and enjoying Mother Nature all around? Unfortunately, this park bench is not too comfortable on cold days. If you’re a lucky owner of Giffram’s Autumntime sofa, you can sit on a park bench in the comfort of your home, with perhaps a bouquet on the table and plants in containers nearby.
The Branch (Marked) Sofa by Zanat is also like a walk in the park, but only from the back. The leg, which turns into a tree with embroidery branches, is brilliant.

Marvin Reber designed the Inclusion Couch as a place of rest and play. Based on his love for tearing apart his parents’ furniture when he was a child, Marvin decided to design a sofa that would be torn apart and turned into a ramp, a fort or whatever the imagination demanded at the time should.
Designed by Alexander Rehn, the Structures Cay Lounge is a totally unusual sofa design in which gravity meets the position that feels relaxed in this video. You have to admit that people really like it in the video, the “hugging” aspect of it.
If you want to sink into an ultra-comfortable, quilted duck down sofa, the modular Shearer is for you – from Life Space Journey.
With a muse in wool bales with strapping and vintage leather (but actually premium-tanned) car seat, the unusual Shearer sofa is anything but pretentious.
There is something about a very black traditional design that makes it a bit bad a $$ design. The baroque silhouette and leather upholstery of the Louis II Loveseat by SixInch is an elegant goth moment that is neutral for any interior.
Mixing traditional silhouettes into other design styles is also a favorite of stone designers like this modern design by Arredo di Pietra and what’s great about this sofa is that you can keep it light outside.
How often do the feet of a sofa match the upholstery color? If you have almost never answered, you are correct and therefore spHaus has designed FOOT. Now it does not matter what color you choose in the FOOT line of fabrics, the steel feet are powder coated to fit.
This unusual sofa (top) by Emmemobili is KNOKKE by Carlo Colombo, and it’s a CNC-shaped multiplayer solid wood design, clear or color tinted.
Island modular sofa by Darono has a bit of shabby chic aesthetics with the loose thread edges and corner ties, but what really fun is the colorful brick style.
Tor Sectional Modular Fabric Sofa is a Offecct design created as a “pit stop” while driving while charging your electrical appliances.
Aqua Creations designed this cool-looking Gladis sofa as if it had a fingerprint with hand-sewn upholstery to create the individual ridges that together make up the fingerprint. I think we should give this unbelievably creative sofa design a thumbs up, right?
Unusual sofas do not have to deviate too far from the norm to make a statement. Softline’s high and high arm Opera sofa is a modular system with “unusually” compact dimensions for the smallest homes, and the extraordinary look is rooted in functionality and the fact that it can be used as a single or multiple seat unit.
The Halo Sofa, also from Softline, reduces its geometry to a horizontal plane and a vertical plane, with the vertical backrest taking on a very large and attention-grabbing profile. It is the oversized vertical unit that led to his name.
The Pliees fabric sofa has a stainless steel frame perfect for the salty air at sea level, but of course you do not have to live at sea level to enjoy this design by Julien Vidame.
Creative sofas can give any room such a funny taste while fulfilling their functional purpose, and so hanging seats in the interior can be used.
