- Select the correct shape for your room. Once you have clarified the function of your sofa, it is time to determine which shape suits your needs. The "L" shaped sofa is a great solution for open spaces that you want to divide into smaller areas – for example, the dining area in the living room. It is an extremely good solution for small homes. The rounded shape definitely creates an inviting atmosphere for gathering people and it is an extremely effective and bold decision but it is more suitable for public interiors. If you prefer to focus on armchairs and tables in your home, then the sofa does not need to be large. You can choose a two-seated flamboyant version whose individualism will make your living room unique and extremely artistic.
- And it is time for the damask. Appearance is important, but functionality is of utmost importance when choosing damask for your sofa. Many of us admire the bright, airy and comfortable sofas. So wonderful and hypnotic but so dangerous! Soft velour in light tones is a bad choice if you have children or pets. Leather is a classic in the genre and it’s always fashionable. It is relatively easy to maintain, especially if it is in a dark shade. Of course, we should keep in mind that during the warmer months leather has the tendency to become musty and stick to the skin, which can be quite unpleasant. Another option is to use durable upholstery for garden furniture. Most of the big companies offer this option which protects you from the influence of the sun, water and any kind of undesired stains. Often, companies also offer elegant exterior armchairs, which can easily fit into the interior.
- Choose the style and color that suits you. Follow your instincts and choose a sofa that best reflects it. If you are extravagant and modern, head for clean forms, but choose bold, even dramatic colors. If your home is eclectic and combines different styles then a re-upholstered vintage sofa with colorful damask or a modern one, but with ethnic pillows, would be the perfect option. If you are a traditionalist, your choice could be a classical sofa, in earthy, neutral tones, which you can refresh with colorful pillows as an accent. If you are worried about experimenting with bright colors and eccentric fabrics, you can always bring freshness into your interior by adding an interesting stool or coffee table. This will make the interior different without having to go to extremes when choosing the sofa or armchairs around it 🙂
