The style of your sofa should complement the style of your house and your existing furniture. It should also function in a way that suits your lifestyle and functions for you. Buying a low-line, sleek sofa that looks great in the showroom amongst contemporary furniture is great if you have a modern home. But if you really prefer a comfy, cushioned seat that you can sink into, keep looking for the one that will suit you and your home.
It is crucial that you measure your space and work out the ideal size that your sofa needs to be. Think about how many people you need to seat regularly and where the best placement in the room would be (keeping in mind doorways and other furniture pieces). It`s a great idea to measure your current sofa to get an idea or alternatively, measure out on the ground with masking tape or newspaper different sizes. This will help you visualise the item in the room and how you move around it. Secondly, even though it may fit within your required space the overall proportion will impact the look within the room.
But there are those people too, who need some strong reasons to overcome their temptations towards the very formal leather sofas and take a leap of faith to choose an upholstered one, which can enliven their living room. Therefore, take a read of the following top reasons to buy a fabric sofa right today:
Start taping the blankets on sofa in the middle (vertical), somewhere half the total height of the sofa and then go along the seating area from side to side. Starting just under the armrests and going along the frame right under the seat from one side to the other. Make sure to tuck and fold loose corners of the blanket neatly around the corners of the sofa and catch them with tape, so they cover the sofa sides and corners properly and do not hang loose. This will hold all four blankets in position. Go around over the same layer of tape at least 4 -5 times. This will provide strong support for carrying the sofa.
For configurations, will a simple 2 or 3 seater work in your space or can it take a larger corner or chaise lounge? Do you move house regularly? Chaise lounges are a great solution for many modern apartments, but if you move around a lot, the chaise is fixed on that side, so it may not work in your next home, a 3 seater & an ottoman would be a better choice. It`s best to decide before hitting the shops and being swayed by what`s on display. In most cases, every sofa design is available in a range of various sizes and configurations to suit your needs.
Are you planning to buy a new sofa, but you are confused whether you should purchase a leather sofa or a fabric sofa? My brother`s marriage is round the corner, and we daily go to our friends and relatives places to give away the invitation cards. I don`t know whether it was a sign to make the right choice or merely a coincidence but, that incidence helped us to take the right choice. We went to two homes, in one there was attractive fabric sofa with bright and eye catchy prints, that can make anyone fall in love with it. And in the second home, they had that classic leather sofa.
