Having a designer sofa in your lounge or living room depicts that you are sensible and cautious. Why is it so? The fact that you choose a sofa that is carefully structured and presented simply proves that you value workmanship. You also consider the durability and reliability of the furniture that is why you opt for a designer sofa. Besides, these kinds of sofas are worth it because they are meant to last for years. Being sensible and cautious are just few qualities that you exude every time you select and buy designer pieces. There are actually a lot more positive traits being exemplified whenever you choose a designer furniture or sofa.
When you have the measurements and the size worked out, you can then look at the other details like the quality of the covers and their durability and stain resistance (a biggy if you have children or pets). Again you will find a huge selection of materials from the cheaper microfiber to expensive leather. While a white leather sofa might look great, just think about the practicality for a moment. Leather is a luxury and should be treated as such. It is easy to see claw marks of your favorite dog or cat and even from visitors wearing boots or belts or a protruding ring. Many materials are very user friendly and are stain resistant.
The style of your sofa should complement the style of your house and your existing furniture. It should also function in a way that suits your lifestyle and functions for you. Buying a low-line, sleek sofa that looks great in the showroom amongst contemporary furniture is great if you have a modern home. But if you really prefer a comfy, cushioned seat that you can sink into, keep looking for the one that will suit you and your home. For configurations, will a simple 2 or 3 seater work in your space or can it take a larger corner or chaise lounge? Do you move house regularly? Chaise lounges are a great solution for many modern apartments, but if you move around a lot, the chaise is fixed on that side, so it may not work in your next home, a 3 seater & an ottoman would be a better choice. It's best to decide before hitting the shops and being swayed by what's on display. In most cases, every sofa design is available in a range of various sizes and configurations to suit your needs.
Putting a designer sofa in your living room also illustrates your neat and high-sense of taste. Sure, there are hundreds of sofas you can choose from various furniture shops but the ones made by designers are exclusive. These sofas and home furnishings are patented so you cannot just see them anywhere. In fact, most furniture designers launch only few pieces of their works to maintain their exclusivity. Plus, their designs are not available all year round. They only make a collection every season, so what you see now may not be available next month.
Not many people collect antique sofas - or have sofas of older styles custom designed. I don't think it is a bad idea, actually. If one were to decorate one's home with an antique theme - with beautiful furniture, accessories and other decor, a lounge similar to the designs used in ancient Rome may be extremely beautiful. The distinct look of such a motif would be incredibly impressive to your guests, as well as an elegant environment for you and your family.
A great way to get some idea of what types of colours and shades will perfectly go with the existing decor and lighting of your living room is to take a few photos of your living space in a number of different light settings.
