We understand that buying a piece of furniture, sight unseen, can bring up questions around comfort. When cushions and frames all look the same in the shop, what makes the difference in feel? We discovered that the only way to deliver the best in comfort was to start with the best: regional American craftsmanship, resilient cushion cores, sturdy springs and frames, and the finest fabrics and leathers. We build our sofas from the inside out, engineering each style to suit a range of comfort profiles, and then we test each of our sofas in real homes before launching them, so you can rest easy knowing you're getting some of the comfiest furniture on the market.
From the cloud-like softness of The Dune to the tailored comfort of The Crosby, our mission is to offer design forward, comfort-driven pieces custom made to last. Read on to discover which piece is perfect for your home and lifestyle.
The Jones Modular
In designing our modular sofa, we knew a piece this strong in versatility would need to be high in comfort, rich in detail, and never sacrificing style. The Jones has it all—visually stunning details, relaxed comfort, and endless possibilities in versatility. Its low-slung, comfort profile features generous seat depth complemented by the mid-recline of the seat back, giving supportive comfort with a visually strong, crisp finish.
Using our spring down system, each cushion contains springs that are wrapped in a high-resiliency foam casing which is then enclosed in a down and feather jacket—boasting the comfortable features of down with minimal maintenance. Even the pillowy, down-filled arms create a relaxed silhouette of laidback comfort. From an expansive loft with a minimalist tone to family movie nights in the basement of a suburban home, The Jones fits beautifully in a variety of settings.
Designed with bold proportions and comfort-driven curvature, The Varick offers a plush, sink-in feel within a modern, yet timeless shape. Oversized arms balance its low-to-the-ground profile, while the plush bench cushion and interior curvature offer laid-back, inviting comfort.
The Varick’s cushions were designed to offer inviting comfort with superior underlying support—and minimal maintenance required. This thoughtfully-considered design starts with a core of high resiliency foam surrounded by soft, silky microfiber encased in a cotton ticking to allow for breathability. Eight-way hand-tied springs offer durable, resilient comfort. A unique blend of comfort, support, and design detailing makes The Varick a contemporary statement fit for everyday luxury.
Tailored with rich texture and sculpted with elegant curves, The Leonard offers the relaxed comfort of a slipcovered sofa within an elevated, design-forward silhouette. Striking a beautiful balance of refined elegance and relaxed comfort, The Leonard's slipcover is hand-sewn in your choice of linen that is expertly tailored to the frame's curved silhouette. Our linen collections offer three levels of relaxed aesthetic: Performance Linen (22% linen), Performance Textured Linen (68% linen), and Performance Stonewashed Linen (100% linen). Each slipcover adds a layer of casual elegance and luxurious comfort that beautifully ages with time.
The Leonard’s deep seat and cushioned tight back offers ample comfort versatility—allowing for each back pillow to be removed or layered as throw pillows. The tight seat is constructed using rows of heavy gauge sinuous springs to provide resilient comfort within a seamless silhouette. Each back cushion features a high-resiliency core enclosed in a down, feather, and fiber wrap, and sewn with three inner channels to prevent settling over time.
Available as a sofa.
The Muir’s deep, semi-reclined seat and multi-layered cushioning offer a luxurious, lounge feel within a sculptural frame. The down and memory foam blended cushions are thoughtfully-designed to provide layer by layer, sink-in comfort, making The Muir a work of art in both form and function.
The Muir features a custom, layered cushion designed for fully-supported, sink-in comfort. Each seat cushion is centered with a high-resiliency core surrounded by layers of memory foam and wrapped in a jacket of down, feathers, and fiber. This multi-layer construction offers weighted support to keep each cushion in place, while the light, down-filled jacket gives a luxurious sink-in feel. The Muir features two layers of back cushions for added custom comfort, filled with a mix of down, feather and fiber fill and sewn with three inner channels to prevent settling over time. Custom made by master woodworkers, no detail is overlooked—from the elegantly reclined back, extensively considered for relaxed comfort, to the hand-beveled edges giving a softened finish upon each corner.
Available in four sizes and finished in your choice of five custom hues.
When we designed The Warren, we knew that a versatile piece like this would need to feel like movie nights and Sunday cartoons but look like visits from the in-laws and holiday parties. This meant a more generous seat depth and soft recline, paired with supportive seat and back cushions. Because of its low-to-the-ground profile and wraparound back, it can sit in the middle of the room or against a wall and look equally beautiful.
Eight-way hand tied springs make up the incredibly comfortable and resilient seat of The Warren. This time-honored, high-quality technique creates the basis for The Warren’s careful balance between modern style and sink-in comfort. The low-maintenance cushions, made with a highly resilient Ultracel core and wrapped in microfiber, provide a casual sit that is perfect for kicking back at the end of the day. Even the arms of The Warren are filled to make them ultra-cozy.
“While it’s deep enough to sink into, it’s not so deep that it takes up a ton of space. It has a low profile and slim arms, but it’s still really welcoming, like a warm hug!” - Anne S, California
The Sullivan has become Maiden Home’s most popular style for the everyday cozy sofa. Its bench cushion creates the perfect spot for movie watching and afternoon naps, while its shelter arms provide a cozy nook for reading or sitting in front of a roaring fire.
The Sullivan features a spring foundation of eight-way hand tied springs, a high-quality technique that creates an incredibly durable seat that is rarely, if ever, found at this price point. Its seat cushions are constructed using a core of high resilience Ultracel foam wrapped in a jacket of feather, down, and microfiber to balance the lofty comfort of down with less maintenance required. Each of its back cushions is made with three individually sewn channels that prevent its down, feather, and microfiber fill from settling over time, so you won’t need to constantly fluff or rotate the cushions to maintain their polished look.
“The bench cushion makes it super comfortable to cuddle up and lay down on, and the back cushions are so well constructed that they don't slouch and look sloppy like every other loose cushion couch I've ever seen.” - Ellen G, New York
The Dune is our most relaxed style, designed as the ideal spot for naps, movies, or just hanging out. Scatterback cushions create a luxurious yet laid-back vibe, like falling into a super soft bed with the perfect number of pillows. If you’re looking for a more tailored aesthetic－while still maintaining that heavenly cloud-like comfort－The Dune is offered in a Classic Back cushion configuration that lends a more polished look.
The Dune’s seat is constructed using heavy gauge steel sinuous springs that provide the perfect foundation for this light, airy style. Its bench cushion features a high-resilience Ultracal foam core wrapped in generous layers of down and feather mixed with microfiber to create an ultra-lofted, sink-in, kick-back seat.
“The comfort of the Dune is like sitting on a cloud with the construction of the bench seat cushion and down feather and fiber fill.” - Anissa Z, Indiana
The Crosby has a semi-reclined seat back and loose cushions that provide a cozy feel with excellent underlying support. If you’re looking for all-day comfort paired with support, The Crosby is a great choice for your home.
To achieve the modern, slim silhouette of The Crosby, the seat is constructed using rows of heavy gauge sinuous springs that allow for a resilient, long-lasting system of support. All our spring systems are covered under a lifetime warranty, so you’re covered from any loss of resilience even decades down the line. The Crosby's cushions are made using a high-resilience Ultracel foam core wrapped in generous layers of microfiber for that sink-in comfort you crave paired with the low-maintenance style you covet.
"The Crosby is fantastic. We were skeptical buying a couch sight and comfort, unseen. But glad we did. The couch is stunning and the comfort is amazing!" - Afsaneh Silverman, New Jersey
The Carmine is our most supportive seat, carefully balancing a polished look that requires zero maintenance and enough sink-in comfort to make it a great everyday piece. It features a shallower seat depth and upright back, which gives it a sleek, slim profile.
The seat on this style begins with a foundation of eight-way hand-tied springs. Considered the gold standard in furniture construction, this technique is known to maintain its comfort and support for decades. The Carmine’s cushions are made using a core of high-resilience Ultracel foam and are then wrapped in layers of microfiber. This pairing of spring and cushion construction mean a seat that will maintain its loft, comfort, and support for years to come.
“The seat cushions are very comfortable and soft – you kind of sink into them, but then they bounce right back which is great for maintaining a clean look.” - Jackie Clair, New York
The Ludlow was one of the first shapes that we designed when launching Maiden Home and has become a favorite for its super relaxed, ultra comfortable sit paired with gorgeous styling details like its biscuit-tufted tight back. Given its generous seat depth and the recline of the seat back, its polished look belies a super plush feel.
The Ludlow’s seat is constructed using rows of heavy gauge sinuous springs that provide a resilient seat on a sleek, slender silhouette. The tufting on its tight back features extra loft to lend another level of softness to the recline. The cushions on The Ludlow are made using a high-resilience Ultracel foam core wrapped in generous layers of microfiber for a luxuriously comfortable sit.
“We love our new Ludlow sofa - gorgeous and comfortable - it’s become the favorite seat in the house for adults and kids alike!” - Holly D, New York
