A sofa is a must-have in most homes. They offer comfort, style, and additional seating for guests. In addition to being practical, they can also be beautiful pieces of furniture that adds elegance to your living room. With so many types of sofas to choose from, it’s hard to know which one will work best for you. Sofa shapes are the first thing you’ll want to consider when choosing your new piece of furniture. Here is an overview of the different shapes and what they mean for your home.
Center-seating cushions Center seating cushions are most often found in sofas that sit on a solid surface, like hardwood floors or metal furniture. When these kinds of sofas are not covered with throws and cushions, they tend to be very hard to sleep on. This is because they don’t provide enough padding or support, especially when sitting on the edge of the seat. This makes them uncomfortable and doesn’t encourage you to spend a lot of time sitting on them. The solution is to slip a few throw cushions underneath the cushions to add comfort and depth to the sofa. Side-seating cushions Side-seat cushions are most commonly found in sofas that sit on a pillow-top platform or a wooden base, both of which encourage users to sit on the side of the sofa.
Choosing the best sofa shape for your home
Each type of sofa has its own personality, and furniture stores offer their own recommendations to determine which sofa to choose for your home. The following is an overview of the different sofa shapes and what they mean for your home. Square Sofa This is the most popular shape and the one most commonly found in home furniture stores and even in furniture stores online. It’s easy to carry and great for easy storage. This shape gives the illusion of space while making the most of the available space in the room. However, there is no room to place a settee without having to turn sideways and this can get a little tricky when hosting dinner parties. The sofa may not look wide, but when seated you can be pressed up against each other from behind.
Ultimately, you should choose a sofa that makes you feel at home and offers comfortable seating for you and your family. The type of sofa you select will depend on where you’ll be sitting and how you intend to use it. For example, if you plan on using it in your living room, you should buy a sofa that has armrests or rests that can be flipped down. Now that you know a bit about the different sofas, it’s time to narrow down the choice to the one you want. Some great resources for making your decision include Ikea’s Ikea Color Finder, which allows you to scan your furniture and match the color to an entire room, as well as Canvas, an online print shop for furniture.
