A Guide to Finding The Perfect Sofa
The sofa is oftentimes the largest piece of furniture in the room, and the rest of the interior typically revolves around it. So, it’s important to choose a sofa that is the perfect marriage of function, comfort and style.
3 tips to choosing the perfect sofa from Normann Copenhagen’s in-house interior designer:
Do you prefer sitting upright or do you like to curl up rather than sitting straight? It’s important to take into account how you’re going to use your sofa when choosing the right model to suit your needs. A sofa with a high backrest will offer great seating comfort for sitting upright, while a sofa with a lower back and a wider seat will offer great comfort for lounging.
Establish how many people the sofa needs to seat and how big the room is. If you’re looking for a sofa that seats more than four to five people, it might be a good idea to consider modular sofas, which will allow you to customize the length of the sofa the needs of you and your family. If the room is on the smaller side but you still need a handful of seating spaces, create a cozy lounge area by placing two sofas across from each other.
As sofas tend to dominate the interior, it’s a good idea to consider how the sofa will interact with the rest of the room. Choosing a sofa that works well with the existing interior will ensure a balanced atmosphere in your living room. Choose fabrics and colors that go well with your existing furniture. It’s a good idea to order a textile sample so you can assess how the structure and color of the textile works in your home.
