A “pit couch” is a large, deep couch that forms a large, soft “pit” for multiple people to sit or lay in. Usually comprised of 6 or more sections that are arranged in a square or rectangle formation. Pit couches go by other names as well including “Modular Sectionals”, “Pit Sectionals”, “Modular Pit Sofa”, etc.
This trend has risen in popularity in the last 3-4 years, especially for home theaters.
When we designed our home theater in The Arched Manor, (see the blog post here) we decided to remove the stadium seating that was previously there – we have two small children, and instead of having us in separate reclining chairs, we opted to create a space for a large pit couch where we could lay and watch a movie together!
We reviewed many different brands and styles of pit couches and ultimately decided on which one fit our style, dimensions, and budget. This blog post dives into our top 5 pit couch options (starting at our #5 choice and working down to our #1) and gives you the pros and cons of each.

I am unclear. Did you actually sit in any of the ones you didn’t buy?
Thanks for the question! We sat in a few of them, but not all of them. We created this list based on our research of the top pit couches and ranked them based on numerous factors such as price, availability, color options, fabrics, and reviews. Thanks!
