Sofas have been called by many names, we are familiar with them being called couches, but they have also been called settees, lounges, davenports, or chesterfields. But it does not stop there they also go by other names because of their various styles such as a two-seater, a three-seater, a corner sofa, or perhaps a chaise lounge. A small version of a couch is sometimes called a loveseat, and, as you likely already know, there are sofas that fold out into beds, as well as futons - which are incredibly similar. There are even lounges or elaborate sofas with canopies for privacy or decoration.
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.
The outdoor sofa set can have the benefits of eco friendliness. It is good to have a set that is spacious and light weight so that you can shift it accordingly to give you garden a new look. Selecting wicker racks for storing wine or other wooden kitchen items is again easy if you have a penchant for utility items. Wicker is getting popular both as indoor and outdoor furniture. The finish on a wicker set can be cultivated in browns, mahogany and even black to give it a sophisticated look. This can give your patio a classy appearance.
It is crucial that you measure your space and work out the ideal size that your sofa needs to be. Think about how many people you need to seat regularly and where the best placement in the room would be (keeping in mind doorways and other furniture pieces). It's a great idea to measure your current sofa to get an idea or alternatively, measure out on the ground with masking tape or newspaper different sizes. This will help you visualise the item in the room and how you move around it. Secondly, even though it may fit within your required space the overall proportion will impact the look within the room. A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room, whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage, look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa, and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa, in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings, making all sofas look smaller than they are.
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.
Your choice of a designer sofa tells so much about your character and style. In fact, your choices in everything are merely extensions of your thought and passion. Your choice of colors, fabrics or designs is a revelation of your inner self. You may not be aware of it but your preferences are clear indications of your characters.
