Certainly the largest piece of furniture in your home, and one that says the most about the overall design style of your home is your sofa. Some prefer the straight lines and minimal design of contemporary sofas. Others like sofas with lots of soft cushy pillows and floral patterns. Still others like sectional sofas. Today sofas come in literally hundreds of styles with endless choices of upholstery. You can order your sofa mail order through companies like Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel. Most people will tell you that after style the most important thing they look for in a sofa is comfort. Choosing the right style of sofa to enhance your home is key. There are many different styles of sofa to choose from, but most manufacturers break them down into two distinct styles, traditional and contemporary. For instance, more traditional styles of sofa would include barrel back, English arm, tufted back, tight back and tuxedo.
However, depending on fabric choices a Tuxedo sofa could be used in a contemporary home. Contemporary styles include sock arm, channel back and sectional. Some sofas come with pillows attached to the sofa, some come with loose pillows that you can free style any way you choose. Another thing that gives your sofa a definite style is fabric choice. When you visit most furniture stores you`ll have the ability to first choose the style sofa you want and then pick your choice of fabric. Some manufacturers have 30 or more different fabrics you can choose from when you are designing a sofa, with the only limit being how much money you want to spend. The choice of fabric can add thousands of dollars to the final cost of a sofa. Bold bright colors and geometric designs would be used on contemporary sofas and softer muted colors and prints would be used on traditional sofas.
After acknowledging the right size of the sofa, you need to have a frame check. The frame of that sofa should be sturdy and strong. The frames are generally made of either wood, metal or plastic. If it is made up of wood, then ensure that it is made up of solid wood. The sofa should not wobble on the corners. You also need to check how the edges of the frame are held together. They should not be glued but attached with the help of screws and bolts. This will make the joints stronger and more reliable.
A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room, whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage, look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa, and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa, in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings, making all sofas look smaller than they are.
Sleeper sofas are very popular, and with good reason. They provide you with a comfortable and fashionable place to sit, while at the same time giving your guests a place to sleep when needed. The advantages of a sleeper couch are well known and documented, and more and more people are turning to them when it comes time to buy a sofa. Where people run into problems with sleeper sofas is when they have either a small space for the sofa, or a difficult pathway such as a tight corner or hallway. An extra small door frame can literally eliminate a regular sized sleeper sofa. Fortunately, there are some super high quality options for small sofa sleepers that work beautifully, and provide all the same benefits as a full size sofa.
