Once you're at the sofa showroom ask as many questions as you can about the materials, the design, the ordering and the delivery process. If you don't get the answers you want there and then ask them to find out and get back to you. Its best to know absolutely everything about the sofa before you make any investment.
Only keep what's essential for seating. You could just take a basic floral print sofa. Then decide to go with wicker rocking chairs. You can get these quite inexpensively and it could even be outdoor furniture. This allows you to get rid of one of the pieces that you aren't really in love with. This is going to give you a shabby chic kind of feel. You can also bring in more neutral colors of ottomans and end tables. This is going to make your design look intentional instead of like you just inherited a piece of furniture even if you did.
If you still cannot imagine the position of the sofa, you can draw the plan of the living room and then place the sofa wherever you want it to be. The color of the walls also has to match the sofa sets. This is true for the outdoor sofa set as well, if you are planning to keep them against the exterior walls of the house. After you have decided on the color and the design of the sofa set, you will then have to select the fabric.
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.
There are so many types from which to choose, and the many selections can be overwhelming. Before shopping, it's best to have an idea of the types of sofas that your space and pocketbook will suit.
Is space an issue? Get a smaller but brightly-colored piece instead, and make sure that it complements other furniture pieces you currently own.
