Furniture consumers today are fast becoming sophisticated and stylish savvy when it comes to their home furnishings and large international furniture makers and retailers such as IKEA have been cashing in on the trend.
A great thing to get hold of is a colour card so you can get samples of the other colours you have in your living area and match them against sofas you're interested in to get an idea of how well it will work in the space you have in mind.
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.
Also check with sofas can be split up and put in various sections so you have an idea what you can actually do with it and whether that would be an advantage to you. Even whether the long 'bed-like' part should be on the left or the right is obviously important too. It all depends on your space.
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.
Until the 20th century the sofa or couch was the name which referred to a long, upholstered seat - one end would be inclined enough for the person lounging on it to rest his or her head. In the late, middle ages the couch almost signified a daybed, and again, we do have our modern versions of the daybed, do we not? Window seats are also very beautiful, comfortable, luxurious and simple to install.
