Product Description

The Maxwell sofa features a thick, contoured arm, distinct piping details and a low-profile seat height, making it both classic and modern. Maxwell's thinner frame rail is raised by a new turned leg style, making its profile light and airy – even with its luxurious extra-deep seat and down-filled back cushions.

Maxwell's reversible seat cushions are constructed with our softest resilient foam and topped with extra-soft down feathers. Its three loose back cushions rest on its perfectly pitched frame.

Maxwell is available as an upholstered or slipcovered sofa, and customizable by fabric, leg, and size.

Below are some easy steps to extend the lifespan of your piece. CLICK HERE for our full Construction & Care guide.

With simple maintenance, your upholstered piece should last for years. Follow these easy tips to extend its lifespan:

  • Vacuum regularly to remove dust from the fabric
  • Rotate cushions regularly
  • Fluff feather and down cushions to maintain their loft
  • Avoid direct sunlight for extended periods
  • When cleaning a spill or stain, avoid using water. We recommend keeping water-free cleaning solvents handy for these situations.
  • Attend to stains as soon as possible. Blot spills with a clean, dry, white cloth. Work from the outer edge to the center of the spot.
  • Do not leave items that may transfer color on top of fabric cushions (e.g. newspaper)

Please note: fabric dye lots may vary. In addition, the colors that appear on your screen may not be accurate due to color variations in monitors. We encourage customers to order free swatch samples, which are available here.

The best couch.

I was a little nervous to buy a couch that I've never sat on, but now that I have it in my apartment, I am so, so happy. I like a couch with good nap-ability, and The Maxwell is one of the best couches I have ever fallen asleep on. It's also sturdy, the fabric (sapphire velvet) is beautiful, and all of the cushions are so far holding their shape. And the folks at Interior Define were great with all of my questions. I love this couch!!

My best purchase

Got this couch on a whim for my office and I love it! It's a low height and the width is perfect for napping or relaxing after work. I got this in the Sapphire velvet with the matte black Sloan leg; it's gorgeous and so soft.

When I got an email from Apartment Therapy about this sofa I thought, "Finally, the sofa we've been looking for!" The sofa is a perfect combination of contemporary style with traditional details. It's something I searched for years for, finding nothing quite right. The sofa has a low overall height, and is very comfortable for sitting (or napping). The sofa arrived relatively quickly, about 7-8 weeks. The service of the ID staff was excellent, and the delivery staff were great too. We are very happy with our purchase!

Beauty and Comfort

I checked out the sofa in the showroom prior to placing my order online. I was kept up to date as my order was processed and the sofa made and shipped. The sofa is even more beautiful and comfortable than the one I saw in the showroom. I couldn't be happier with my purchase

After a horrendous experience with another company, I was skeptical about ordering a sofa online. And then comes "Maxwell!" Thank you Interior Define for your outstanding customer service and of course, I love my new sofa.

So good!!!

I fell in love with The Maxwell the moment is was featured on Apartment Therapy! My husband and I have been shopping for a couch for our new home (we've been moving in since February!) and we are (finally!!) ready to make our 1st major purchase for our 1st home!

I had ordered some swatches to see the fabrication IRL, and received my swatches a week later, beautifully packaged with a hand written note from Corrina. So when it came time to place my order, I spoke with Corrina and she was able to accommodate me and place my order directly on the phone! I look forward to receiving The Maxwell, and I will definitely update this review for the full experience.

About the designer

Maxwell Ryan
From the designer: “For my sofa design, we took a traditional shape—which means comfy and cozy and approachable—and made it fresh and contemporary. The comfort factor was a big deal to me, and we went back and forth about how the cushions were going to 'sit.' This is a sofa you want to lie down and take a nap on. You can have your whole family on it—it feels like the center of the room. The details from the side to the back are as good as the front, so you can float it in the middle of the room to separate an open layout. For the cushions, we did two on the seat and three on the back. It would be normal to do two-and-two, or three-and-three. It’s a bit of a different language, and it’s subtle, but it looks beautiful."
