Comfort

Go for comfort …Whatever this might mean to you …Some people like their sofa really cushy and loungy; others prefer a more stiff straight back experience…understand what best fits your needs and go for it full-hearted …The sofa is where you spend most of your relaxing times and if you cannot do that then there is something wrong …Pick a sofa in a beautiful -but practical- upholstery that won’t make you nervous or forbid you enjoying the best of your living room ..Tweets ,velvets , leathers, knits, suede’s are great options for a quality sofa.

Size Matters

Do not look into buying the biggest and grandest sofa there is out there; even if you have the space….Try to understand your space… Sometimes proportions require smaller more compact sofas and you can always accent the room with trendy armchairs…As a rule of thumb the more boxy your sofa is the more creative your accent chairs need to be, in order to complement the space and make it appear more interesting

Small spaces

On the other hand if you have a smaller space, then maybe you might want to think about an armless sofa …Beautiful side tables will serve as a great resting spots on each side and you can get creative by using trendy designs that will add to the décor…Lower coffee tables are always a must in a smaller space; they allow freedom of movement as well as declutter the room
