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)

Elegant and Easy
I LOVE this sofa. I live in a historic townhouse with narrow staircases but grand wide rooms and had been really struggling to find something that would have the presence to ground a large living space but also fit up my stairs and into my house. After 2 previous failed attempts, I discovered Interior Define and have been thrilled with the whole process! From swatches to delivery you can tell they've really thought through and addressed every question a frustrated sofa purchaser could have. While it felt like forever, the delivery arrived in 8 weeks as promised and the delivery team was fantastic navigating the stairs and putting everything together. And the Maxwell is the perfect blend of classic design details like the rolled arm and turned legs and modern comforts of low, deep seats perfect for napping or hosting friends and family. I have the 86" sofa and I can easily fit 4-5 adults on it! My favorite detail of this sofa is that there are little hooks on the frame and the cushions to hold them in place so you don't get that dreaded cushion slide where you suddenly find your seat is half off the frame. ID really knows what the people want from their sofas! I purchased the Maxwell in the sapphire velvet and it is just a stunning deep blue green tone. Overall this sofa is everything I was looking for: style and presence but so comfortable I can loose a whole Sunday afternoon just curled up on it. I wholeheartedly recommend this sofa.
so super comfy family sofa
We were really (really!) nervous about ordering a sofa sight unseen. It arrived this weekend and we LOVE it. We also ordered the Rose chair and they are lovely together. Mod Velvet for both, garnet for the chair and sapphire (obvs.) for the Maxwell. It's fantastic. A few notes:
It is deep. This ends up being a very lean-back and sink into it soft of couch. The Rose chair is more upright and stuffed. The Maxwell is a bit lower to the ground than I expected, but it's not bad. Just, you know, lower. The 82" seats 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 5&7) comfortably. I'd size up if wanting more adults to fit.
We got the matching ottoman. It's great for putting up feet/using as a table. Downside is that the cushion is not attached, which is no big deal for most people, but kids will keep shoving that cushion around. We are establishing new-furniture rules as we go.
Mostly, it looks great and feels amazing. I've never had the quality goosedown feather cushions and boy, are they nice! I hope Interior Define sticks around for a long time because we will definitely be ordering more furniture from them in the future. Not ever going back to cheap quality and nasty all-foam pillows.
Beautiful and Comfortable
I could not be happier with my new sofa! The staff at Interior Define made it such a smooth and easy process – including helping me decide on fabrics for hours and hours. I ended up going with the Sapphire velvet and it is stunning! The cushions are plush and very comfortable; yet firm enough to hold their shape. The superior quality of the fabric, contemporary design and exceptional comfort makes it the perfect fit for my home. I would definitely recommend Interior Define.
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.
Just received the sofa and wow are we impressed and happy. It's every bit as good - if not better - than advertised. We were a bit apprehensive about ordering unseen but eight swatches later we jumped. Unique style, as well as excellent fabric, craftsmanship, comfort, and a great price. Perfect blend of casual and elegance. Super easy ordering, timely updates and great delivery service. Highly recommend both this sofa and ID.
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.
