Ergonomic Living Room Furniture

Is your old sofa proving to be a pain in the neck (literally)? Then it's probably time to throw it out and move on to something bigger and better. Ergonomic living room furniture should be a priority; especially as we spend increasing amounts of time seated indoors. As well as proving beneficial to our physical health, mobility and posture, an ergonomic couch is also significantly mood-boosting and energizing.

So, when choosing an ergonomic sofa, the main things to look out for are a sturdy structure, firm cushioning and a seat height and depth that suits your body. Read on to find out more!

Ergonomic Couch with Lumbar Support

Ergonomic Couch with Lumbar Support

Tired of having a sore neck and back after getting lost in a good book for a few hours? An ergonomic couch with additional lumbar support will help shift you into a healthy posture with a neutral spine. Opt for foam-filled sofa cushions for firm support that will keep your body properly bolstered for long periods of time.

Maintain a healthy reading posture by placing your feet on the ground at a 90-degree angle and raise the book to just under eye-level to avoid slouching forward and straining your neck and back. You can do this with the help of some extra cushions or an armrest.


Mid Century Modern Ergonomic Sofa

Mid Century Modern Ergonomic Sofa

Looking for an ergonomic couch to fit your mid-century modern decor? You’re in luck! Tailored, slim and firm living room furniture designs, as seen in mid-century periods, are actually some of the best sofa styles for our bodies. Thanks to their high-density cushioning they provide the perfect amount of back support, whilst their angular backrests discourage slouching.

Some mid-century modern sofa designs have low backrests. This can be problematic for taller people as they don’t provide enough upper back, neck or head support. Aim for a back height between 29 to 34 inches for optimal support.

Ergonomic Sectional Sofa

Ergonomic Sectional Sofa

Look after your family and guests with an ergonomic sectional sofa. Whilst most people associate coziness and comfort with big, deep, squishy sofas, these are not what's best for our body. Instead, ergonomic sectionals have a sturdy frame and dense cushioning that maintains your knees level with your hips, preventing slumping and unnecessary pressure on your back.

Avoid extra deep sofas. The correct seating position is with both feet flat on the floor, with your knees hugging the edge of the seat. The most recommended seat depth for the majority of the population is between 23 and 28 inches.


Reclining Ergonomic Living Room Furniture

Reclining Ergonomic Living Room Furniture

If you like to relax with your feet up in a near lying down position, reclining living room furniture is what you should be aiming for. This way you will be able to lie back comfortably with your back fully supported and your legs and hips correctly aligned.

Arrange your furniture according to what you will be using it for most often. For example, if the sofa is for TV watching, position it centrally and directly in front of the TV, at an appropriate distance. This will prevent neck straining and craning. 

Ergonomic Floor Couch with Back Support

Ergonomic Floor Couch with Back Support

Whether for gaming, watching TV, reading or even working, padded floor couches provide excellent support and comfort as well as a handy extra spot for friends and family to lounge, both comfortably and healthily. Most floor couches offer adjustable backrests that allow you to achieve the perfect reclined position for your needs.

Floor sitting helps us maintain a neutral spine and sit more upright, therefore improving your posture. Plus, it also helps to strengthen leg muscles as you stand up. However, for this same reason, it may not be the best choice for the elderly or people with mobility restrictions.

Orthopedic Furniture for Living Room

Orthopedic Furniture for Living Room

A sectional sofa bed is a great investment for those who live in small apartments or townhouses. As well as optimizing the living room’s seating capacity they also provide a comfortable bed to host overnight guests. Avoid sofa beds with flimsy mattresses and give your guests a supportive and ultra-comfortable night’s sleep with an orthopedic high-density memory foam mattress instead.

Whilst sectionals are a convenient way to seat the entire household on one couch, it is unlikely to provide optimal support to every member. This is due to different heights and body shapes having different needs. Additional cushions solve this issue, bolstering shorter people forward, so their feet can make contact with the floor.

Twin Ergonomic Sofa

Twin Ergonomic Sofa

Do you and your partner spend extended amounts of time knitting, reading or using a tablet? You might think about choosing a twin sofa with a drop down armrest. As well as providing a useful spot to prop a drink or snacks, armrests provide extra support to your elbows and encourage you to raise your book or tablet up to eye-level, promoting better posture and preventing unnecessary neck strain.

The recommended armrest height for the average person is between 22 to 27 inches.

Searching for ergonomic furniture for a small living room or studio apartment? Smaller than a sofa but bigger than an armchair, an ergonomic loveseat offers the perfect in-between! Blend form and function with neatly upholstered cushions filled with firm pocket coils that provide optimum support and comfort without compromising on style.

Remember, function is just as important as style; be careful with bespoke dimensions of a sofa and try to stick to industry standards to prevent discomfort and damage to your physical health. 

Ergonomic Couch with Supportive Memory Foam

Ergonomic Couch with Supportive Memory Foam

Couches with memory foam cushions are reliably durable and long-lasting. The foam molds to your body and evenly distributes body weight so you can sit comfortably for extended periods. Plus, you don’t have to worry about it going flat and lumpy as it retains its shape well over time.

If you plan on using your furniture daily, choose a durable and resistant fabric that is easy to clean for and clean, such as linen, cotton or synthetic microfiber.  

Reclining Ergonomic Living Room Furniture Set

Reclining Ergonomic Living Room Furniture Set

Look out for the health of all the family with a reclining ergonomic living room furniture set. Recliner sofas and chairs provide the ultimate customizable relaxation experience with extending leg rests that help relieve the pressure on your spine and lower back.

If your living room is frequently used for social gatherings, accommodate your furniture in a circular shape to encourage conversation and prevent guests from having to twist around into awkward positions to face each other.

Our advice Buying Guide

Buying living room furniture, specifically loveseats, sofas, and chairs, must be treated like buying shoes. You're supposed to have showpieces that are fashionable, sculptural, and collectible.

However, if you truly want to relax, you'll need ergonomic living room furniture that fits you well like a pair of quality running shoes that has just the right amount of cushion and support.

Read our buying guide below to find the best furniture pieces for your body.

What are the most common types of ergonomic living room furniture?

  • Sofa beds are best for those who live in smaller accommodations because they allow guests to sleep without the need for extra bedrooms. Most sofa beds available in the market today come with foam mattresses. They are adequate for occasional use only. If you’ll be able to spend more on a sofa bed, consider the unit that has a sprung mattress as it offers extra comfort.
  • Lounges are often sold according to the number of people that need to be accommodated. You may want to entertain often in your living room. If so, then consider the sofa that has a seating capacity of 6-8 people. Modular lounges are popular today as they can be used independently or put together. They are ideal for those with irregularly shaped living rooms and those who require flexible seating arrangements. If you constantly find yourself stretching out when you’re on the couch, get a lounge that has a chaise so you’ll be able to lie comfortably without taking up the entire seating space.
  • Recliner lounges and chairs are good for those who want to take their downtime seriously. They're best for kicking back into the most comfortable seating position, which is reclined, for unparalleled comfort. Recliners may come with or without footrests that can support your feet as you recline.

What are the best materials to upholster ergonomic living room furniture with?

If you will be using your furniture daily, you need durable fabric. Linen and cotton will prove to be your best options, but make sure you check for loose weaves as they can snag. Another terrific option for you is synthetic microfiber, which is capable of mimicking most fabrics. It's stain resistant as well. Linen and cotton can be treated to resist staining, but they are not as easy to care for and clean.

Your other options are blends of synthetic and natural fibers but they tend to fade in just a year. Leather and wool are stunning and strong, but they can be expensive. Fabrics with patterns that are woven in have the tendency to wear better compared to fabrics with printed patterns. As for silk, it’s sleek but it is fragile. Pile fabrics like boucle, velvet, and chenille are popular as they're capable of masking dirt and resisting wear even in a high traffic area.

How to select the optimal ergonomic feature?

Consider how living room furniture (e.g. chair and sofa) fits the body frames of the users. A frame that’s low to the ground can be difficult for people to stand up after sitting for a long time. Sofas with deep seats may also leave petite persons with their feet several inches away from the floor. To find out which is best for your home, think about the function of the room where the furniture will be placed as well as the people who will be using it.
