From size to style to color, the choices are endless when it comes to shopping for a sofa. But even before you get into the details, one of the most important decisions to make is which fabric is right for you. Leather sofas are a classic choice, and it’s no secret that velvet sofas are currently having a moment of their own, but one upholstery style we love (and feel doesn’t get nearly enough credit) is the linen sofa. Now, while linen has a reputation for being an exceptionally strong, smooth, and soft natural material, it’s also known for being a bit high maintenance. However, when it comes to sofas and seating, most pieces are made with performance linen, an enhanced form of the fabric that’s designed to withstand more use while still retaining the elegant style and high-quality feel you’ve come to associate with linen furniture. Below, we rounded up 10 of the best linen sofas that will become a staple in your home for generations to come.
