The choice of sofas often causes confusion and many questions – how to combine the sofa with furniture, how to choose the style, material, etc… In order for the harmony of the space to be complete, the selection of a sofa is very important, because it is the most expressive and voluminous piece of furniture in the living room.
Trendy are sofas with a low backrest, regardless of their design. They look smaller and more elegant, and this trend is suitable for small spaces. Correct the somewhat greater depth of seating, which is also imposed by the trends, with decorative cushioning.
When choosing a sofa design, bear in mind that a simple design is suitable in combination with a variety of styles and decorative items, as well as suitable for a game of colors.
This design will just as well fit the rustic, classic or minimalist style, and freedom in the creation of the environment is at its maximum!
Sofas with narrow armrests will create an impression of sophistication and elegance that can be matched with the interior or used as a contrast to the rough, rustic expression.
Sofas with wide armrests look much rougher and more voluminous so do not put them in small spaces. This design creates additional horizontal emphasis so combine them with vertical decorations in the background.
Cushion sets are visually very expressive, but also simple and you can combine them with numerous details, but in large spaces.
Sofas Bring Comfort to the Living Room
For those who prefer comfort, we recommend flexible sofas that can become a comfortable couch for the whole family. Ideal are the ones without arms because they offer the most sitting or lying space.
Sofas with integrated shelves are always interesting and practical. In larger spaces create a circular link around the sofa, and in smaller ones place the shelf laterally.
The choice of fabric for the sofa is very important. Artificial leather will create a visually colder impression but will be much more practical for maintenance. A large selection of fabrics enables interesting dynamic combinations that can be combined with other decorative fabrics in space.
The play of colors on the sofa, the so-called patchwork, is also very modern. If you decide on such combinations, reduce the colors and details in space.
Chesterfield pattern is also visually very expressive and sophisticated and can be combined with a variety of styles and details. The impression will be very peculiar.
