Interior design trends have changed a lot throughout the years. Many homeowners have forgone carpet in favor of wood floors, ditched wallpaper for fresh paint, and learned to integrate many types of furniture into a room without all of them matching.
But no matter the year or the most up-to-date trends, a couch has almost always been the focal point of every home. Sure, there are a few folks out there who are content with some lawn chairs for indoor seating – but that’s never fun for long. Not even in The Sims.
A couch is like a bed, except it’s socially acceptable to spend most of your day there.
That’s obviously no different in The Sims 4.
This is a life simulator, after all. And I know a couch is almost always the first thing I drop some Simoleons on with every new game.
And there are poses out there for basically everything you could want to see your Sims do. So there’s definitely no shortage of pose packs to get them using the couch.
We may see them on there a lot already – but this list will offer a great range of couch-related poses to make things seem more natural, rather than those rigid sitting positions we’re so used to.
Nobody normal has posture that good!
1. Couch Pose Pack
To kick things off, here are some great relaxed poses that will get your Sim sitting and lounging in a few different positions.
These all have a really casual feel, thanks to the way the creator positioned the arms and legs.
This is definitely a Sim without a worry in the world!
He or she can be sitting upright, lying on their side, or on their belly with their feet up in the air.
All very homey and simple. But you can’t ask for much more out of realistic poses like these.
They’re perfect because they’re so natural.
From what I can tell, many people don’t seem to know about this tip, so I’m here to let you know that you can use most poses almost anywhere.
The teleporter can be moved up and down with the 9 and 0 keys like objects – so whatever height you set them at, that’s where your Sim will be.
You can do some really amazing stuff with that.
I mean, I’ve had Sims laying on the dining room table with poses meant for the floor, sitting in bed with poses meant for the sofa… so if you want to use these poses (or any others) on a couch that’s a different height than pictured, don’t fret!
Now, that trick with the keys used to be a guarantee – but it can be a little wonky sometimes since recent updates, so you’ll have to use some trial and error.
But it’s still good to keep in mind.
2. Seated Argue & Grief Poses
Unfortunately, the couch isn’t always a place of joy and television binging.
Like I said, it’s the focal point of almost any home – and that means the good, the bad, and the ugly.
These are poses for two Sims who aren’t having the best day.
Through the 12 of these poses, you’ll see your Sims in emotional states like they’re arguing, and then reaching the point of sadness and comforting each other.
It’s not pretty, but that’s life.
And you’ve got to be honest… sometimes Sims get a long a little too well.
If you want some of that sweet, sweet drama to spice up your game, you just might have to manufacture it.
This is one way to go about it that’s very satisfying.
Whether you make your Sims actually argue or not, you can admire this melancholy moment of their lives as long as you want with each pose.
3. Group Sim Poses
Here are some fun poses for any 4 adults.
They’ll send your Sims through a variety of happy & playful moments, all clustered together on the sofa.
Something I really love about this pack is that it’s meant for four Sims, whereas the couch normally only seats 3.
I understand it’s like that for smoothness and routing purposes, but that’s so unrealistic.
When guests are over, people tend to get in where they fit in – even if that means sitting elbow-to-elbow.
When you’re with friends or family, that’s just part of the atmosphere.
Have you ever even had fun if you haven’t narrowly dodged being smacked upside the head by your friend’s arm?
But these 3 poses will set your Sims up in ways you’ve never seen them.
In one, they’re all lounged back and chatting, but in the other two they’re facing forward. All the poses look like very candid shots, and it’s totally up to you what’s going on.
Watching the big game on TV? Grudgingly playing along because Mom insisted on taking a picture? Passing the time while they wait for an imaginary Uber?
That’s the beauty of poses: the story is what you make it.
4. Family Pose
I may or may not have started an entire legacy just to see my Sim in this pose as a grandma.
A more sensible player may have just made a granny in CAS, but you don’t come to know a Sim as well that way.
Yes, I realize I sound crazy.
If only you knew how many hours Origin says I’ve played. That’s the real ‘yikes’ moment.
But hey, it’s already such a fun game to begin with. Cute poses like this just really bolster the whole experience.
This one is meant for one adult, two toddlers, and two cats.
It’s a simple singular pose that consists of them all piled up on the couch, with the adult holding one toddler while the other lounges casually, and the two kitties take it all in.
It’s a really sweet moment that will warm your heart every time you use it.
Just keep a surplus of toddlers and cats on hand so you can see it again whenever you want.
You may also note that the creator used a loveseat in the example photos, but don’t worry: since that’s basically just a stunted couch, you can use this pose on a longer one as well.
Simply position the teleporters a little off center and you’re good to go.
5. Couch Potatoes Pose Pack
While many poses are intended for specifically male or female Sims, these are quite gender neutral – fitting for any couple that wants to cuddle up together on the couch.
These poses go through an array of positions, including one with a Sim laying with their head in the other’s lap, some kisses, as well as some playful straddling poses.
Most of these will look like your Sims are in their own little world which is pretty cute.
Especially if they aren’t the only two Sims in the household, intimate moments can be hard to come by without someone else ruining the moment.
But don’t be afraid to teleport the others outside and lock the doors to give your Sims the alone time they deserve!
6. Binge-Watching TV Poses
This is one pose pack that will hit close to home for almost everybody.
It may not be the most productive pursuit, but there are few better ways to relax and unwind than a good binge-watching session of your favorite TV show.
A steady supply of snacks makes it even better.
These poses will probably be the most human you’ve ever seen your Sims.
Talented creator Katverse includes 5 poses where your Sim is watching TV and stuffing their face with delicacies like pizza and potato chips.
If you’ve never used props with your poses before, don’t worry, it’s really simple.
There are usually specific directions when you go to download them, but most of the time they’re categorized as an accessory in CAS, so you just have to go in there and apply it before setting your Sim in the pose.
Each pose shows the Sim sitting or lounging back on the sofa, snacks and remote never far away.
7. Goosebumps86’s Sofa Poses
Here’s some great random couch poses for a lone Sim.
In real life, you can do a lot more on a couch than just sit or nap there. Like… jump on it?
Yep, that’s the best part of being an adult. Nobody is there to tell you not to jump on furniture or terrorize you with stories of monkeys bumping their heads.
Okay, so maybe that’s not the very best part.
I’d say that it’s actually shamelessly unrestricted Sims time, but anyway…
Three of these poses feature a Sim jumping on the couch, looking very happy about it, while in the 4th pose she’s laying with her legs resting over the arm.
I’d like to also remind you that you can always use more than one pose at once.
So by just playing the teleporters apart, you could have two or three Sims jumping on the couch!
Perfect for slumber parties, celebrations of good news, and just for the heck of it.
8. Marygelal’s Group Poses With Sofa
This pose can get six Sims on the couch at once.
I hope they don’t own furniture too cheap, ‘cause it’s bound to buckle under so much weight after only seating three at a time!
Five Sims will be seated here, with another laying across their laps.
There isn’t a much better way to capture a friend group or siblings all together – especially not indoors.
This is nice and compact too, so everyone is sure to be all in frame.
And the positions here are all really relaxed. They’re resting on one another, and each Sim has their own unique pose from head to toe.
9. Snuggles Pose Pack
One of the most exciting moments for a Simmer is when your Sims finally start getting hot and heavy like you’ve been trying to force.
Sometimes they comply immediately and you can have two Sims who meet, get married, and are expecting their first child in a matter of hours.
However, there are other times where they really fight the destiny you already have imagined for them.
No matter where your game takes you, you can always fall back on poses.
These simple snuggly ones will be awesome for any pairing, whether they just started dating or have been married for years.
One Sim will sit on the other’s lap, or rest her head there, and these are again some really intimate poses.
They feel very romantic!
10. Couple Couch Pose Pack
So these cute poses are meant for two, and will provide some nice photo ops.
Two of these poses include the Sims seated beside each other, smiling or laughing, then they’re a little more touchy-feely in the other two.
The female Sim’s head will be resting on the male Sim’s shoulder.
It’s just some sweet candid moments on the couch, as everyone’s had at one time or another.
You can use these for a photoshoot, to keep track of a legacy, or for storytelling purposes.
Anything goes, since like I said, the context is yours to determine.
I know I for one almost died from the cuteness when I first discovered that an adult Sim could cuddle with a child on the couch, but that’s just not enough. There are so many adorable moments to be had.
And I’m so glad Simmers are giving them to us!
