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.
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.
So, the lesson I got from that incidence is that when we buy a sofa for my brother`s new house, it is going to be a leather sofa because soon they will also have kids maybe in the next three to four years and replacing it again would have us incur a massive loss. But, every coin has two sides so we can`t just rely on one aspect and take the decision. The below guide will help you to know which sofa set would be better for you whether a fabric sofa or a leather sofa?
Scotchgard to protect from spills and can be vacuumed to keep clean. If you have small children and it is going to be used in a busy area, consider a darker colour for to hide some of the sins and keep your sofa looking pristine for longer. It is generally best to select a neutral colour for your sofa then add colour in the way of cushions, rugs and throws, the sofa will be the biggest piece of furniture in the room and can overwhelm everything else if it is a bold colour or print. If you would really like a feature piece in a bright colour, look to get an ottoman or feature chair, then have some coordinating cushions on the sofa to tie the look together. Remember the sofa will be with you for years, avoid anything too trendy or seasonal, classic modern sofas in fabric or leather will go the distant, and can be updated as needed with new accessories.
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.
Cabriole: These are the sofas that come with an equal height of arms and back. They usually are designed with an inward curve in a line from arm to arm. They are characterized by usually an exposed wooden frame. But nowadays, the contemporary designs of them are fully upholstered. Chaise Lounge: These are the single piece of sofas. They are either used as an extra piece of seating in your living room or for your master bedroom. Some of these chaise lounges come with arm rests while some come without armrests. The upholstery and fabric of it depend from piece to piece. So, if you are will buy it they are available in plenty of colors and styles to match your taste of preference.
