What's your sofa style?

03 Feb 2017

The living room is the central hub of your home - the place to entertain and unwind in. Chances are that you spend most of your downtime here, enjoying precious family time or much needed “me” time, lounging on the sofa catching up on a new book or latest boxset, so it’s essential that you find the seat that suits your style, while providing maximum comfort of course!

With so many options out there, it’s not surprising if you don’t quite know where to start when shopping for a new sofa. As well as deciding how roomy or compact this investment piece needs to be, it’s also important that your sofa fits your style, and personality! So you’ll keep on wanting to sink into it for years to come. Keep reading below and discover your match made in sofa heaven.

The contemporary classic

If a clean, understated living space is what you seek, then opt for a simple yet sophisticated sofa that is sure to last you lifetimes. Look for unfussy styles that place a strong emphasis on line and form, with features such as comfortable yet structured cushioning and slim arms and legs that keep even the most substantial piece from weighing a room down. For the minimalist in you, pick a neutral toned upholstery fabric, allowing you to play with texture, pattern and colour by layering cushions and throws on top if you wish. Trés chic!

The bold statement-maker

Love entertaining friends and family in your sophisticated and oh-so-stylish living space? Then a bold, modern sofa may be what you’re looking for. Sofas with a sleek, squared off frame offer a tailored look, while tapered legs and button tufted detailing add a retro touch reminiscent of mid-century designs. Take it up a notch with bold coloured fabrics, along with plush cushions in complementary colours to create a beautiful colour scheme and add extra comfort. So Insta-worthy!

The cosy couch

If all you want to do at the end of a long day is sink into the most comfortable seat there is, then opt for a sofa with deep seating and generous, plump cushions - perfect for true relaxation! Large cushions that spill over the seat frame create softer edges for a cosy, homely look, and make even a slim framed sofa the ultimate in comfortable seating. Make this sofa even more inviting by adding a luxurious throw and a few more cushions for good measure (you can never have too many cushions). And relax….!

The multi-tasker

If you find yourself constantly hosting guests throughout the year, then you’ll want to choose a versatile piece that can transition from sofa to sleeper without any hassle. Sofa beds have revolutionised and are no longer practical put-me-ups with no style or comfort – there are many chic and contemporary options out there that can do double duty in a living room you’ll love. Look for options that are quick and easy to convert, with a quick pull down of the back rest for instance. Neat legs and stylish colours and fabrics also make for a cool seat that your guests will hardly believe quickly turns into a cosy crashpad!
