Whether you're looking for a starter couch or one that can fit your entire family (and then some), couches in a box have never been more popular, better-looking or easier.

As a result, the sofa sector is being reinvented; now we can simply hop online and purchase an affordable couch.

The goal is for this sofa to be used by you, your loved ones and your pets. ” And having tested the couch for ourselves, we can confirm the fabric is no joke — it has easily stood up to four kids jumping, lounging, snacking and building forts on it 24/7.

More to know: Couches ship for free in a week or so, free fabric swatches are available here, the brand boasts a 100-day trial period with free returns and the sofas can be customized in more than 500 configurations (from a three-seat option to a U-shaped sectional).

Frustrated while waiting weeks for a traditional couch to arrive with nowhere to sit in the meantime, the founders started thinking outside (or, ahem, inside) the box — specifically about swapping the standard sofa base of wood and steel for honeycomb structure technology typically found in airplanes and race cars.

Another design detail that we appreciate: The couch can hold up to a whopping 3,000 pounds (this is nearly three times the weight other sofas in a box can handle) with nary a divot in the sofa afterward.

More to know: The sofas are delivered for free within two to four days, each features machine-washable covers (replacement covers in a variety of colors can be found here), fabric swatches are available upon request and the 30-day trial includes free pickup (with or without a box) if you’re not satisfied with the product.

Its bestselling Nomad Sofa, for instance, has reversible cushions and comes in nine configurations — from a loveseat to a double-chaise sectional — in addition to three fabric types (performance, top-grain leather and velvet), three wood or metal leg finishes (we’re partial to the brass) and three arm shapes.

Burrow offers free swatches and free shipping on all its furniture, with deliveries usually arriving within a few weeks, and the 30-day return policy includes a 10% restocking fee with the original boxes (that goes up to 20% without packaging).

Since launching in 2014, made-in-Michigan furniture brand Floyd has been churning out simple yet intuitively designed sofas to a cult following.

First up: Floyd is rooted in its mission to combat the high-waste furniture industry by creating a quality, made-to-last sofa crafted from honest, nontoxic materials that’s compact enough to be shipped in a flatpack, reducing carbon emissions and the brand’s footprint.

Next, there’s the cozy modern design of the brand’s sole couch, The Sofa.

Our favorite, and one of the brand’s bestsellers, is the roomy Kellan Sectional Sofa ($2,299, originally $2,499; capsulehome. com or $2,799; wayfair. com) designed by Eric Lin. With clean lines and tapered legs, the low-to-the-ground piece has reversible cushions with removable covers and comes with throw pillows, making it perfect for big families, entertaining or anyone who needs to sprawl out while bingeing Netflix.
