    How about "bed risers". I've seen them in catelogues. I don't know how tall you want your couch, but maybe you could build a riser with drawers. Not only would this add height, but you'd have some storage space. I hope that maybe one of my ideas will lead you to a solution.

    many couches have legs that just unscrew to get them off. Take them off and replace with a taller leg.

    Get bun feet at HD or Lowes...they Come in sizes,you can always add another inch or two to the bun feet next to the sofa side.

    This was new to me also,just learned it recently...but I am tucking this away in my grey matter,because as I get older...I need to be higher on the sofa or chair! We saw them at the store after seeing them on a DIY site! 🤓 Post a picture of whatever you do! By the way...I just googled bun feet...nice interesting styles!

    Bricks. I put my couch up on bricks, with socks around each one the same collar as the couch. Blends right in.

    Not sure how much bun feet cost, but they're an option. I'd look in the fencing department at HD for screw on attachments that could be used as feet. There are a lot of 'lift' items out there. Here's another option for you: a 4x4 cut to the desired height and attached with screws. If all else fails, try your nearest thrift store for an inexpensive replacement couch. ( I picked up a gorgeous love seat for $15.00 at Habitat and just absolutely love it. ) Best of luck.
