How to Choose a Sofa to Suit Your Space

how-to-choose-a-sofa

There are a few things to consider when picking the perfect sofa. How many people does it need to seat? How big or small is your living room? What style is your other furniture?

First, let's talk about the various sizes that sofas can come in.

Size of Sofas

The size of the sofa you end up getting depends on how many people it will need to fit and the size of your room. If you want a sofa that can seat more people, but your room is on the smaller side, look for a sofa with a more simple design. A highly-decorative sofa looks great, but can take up more space than a plain sofa that seats the same number of people.

Sofa Beds

Sofa beds are ideal if you ever need to host guests overnight. These sofas look beautiful, and they also function as beds with a minimal amount of effort.

If you're pressed for space but still want the benefits of a sofa bed, check out our ottoman bed. It won't be able to seat people like a regular sofa can, but it is perfect if the only reason you need a sofa is for people to sleep on.

2 Seater Sofas

Two seater sofas do exactly that — they seat at least two people comfortably. These sofas will also be able to seat more if some of them are kids.

These sofas are spectacular for those who occasionally need to entertain guests. They can provide ample seating when guests are over, but they are also perfectly comfortable to relax in alone with a book or in front of the TV. These sofas can be especially comfortable when paired with an ottoman to rest your feet on.

3 Seater Sofas

Three seater sofas let you entertain even more guests. If your living room is larger and can fit a three seater, a sofa of this size is a great investment. Pair a three seater with an exquisite coffee table for the ultimate guest-pleaser.

Our three seater sofas are so comfortable you may also find yourself lying down and relaxing on them after a stressful day of work. That’s what it’s there for!

Lounge Suites

A lounge suite enables you to entertain guests in the most extravagant way possible. Our designer lounge suites provide comfortable seating for your friends and family and will look good while doing so. Oh, and they'll last you a lifetime. There's no reason not to invest in a lounge suite, if you've got the room for one.

Sofa Styles

Sofas come in a range of styles. Each style has its own personality and characteristics.

Classic Traditional

Classic Traditional furniture has a look that is calm and collected. It's never too simple or too complicated. Classic Traditional sofas are appealing to every age group, so they work great in homes where all family and guests come to visit. If you value peace and calm above most other things, you can't go wrong with a Classic Traditional sofa.

Mid Century

Mid Century furniture is youthful and functional. Its sense of style exists somewhere between artistic and practical. A Mid Century sofa is most likely to have smooth lines and come in brighter or more eye-catching colors. Get a Mid Century sofa if you want your room to be visually exciting and fresh.

French Provincial

French Provincial furniture is never out of style. If you want a sofa that will look as good now as it will in decades to come, try a French Provincial sofa. This kind of furniture can also be used in different ways. It can be styled as elegant or down-to-earth depending on your preference.

Contemporary

Contemporary furniture is usually quite minimalist. For this reason, Contemporary sofas often have straight lines and neutral colours. A Contemporary sofa would look perfect in a more relaxed, neutral-colored living room.

Industrial

Industrial furniture hides nothing about itself. Anything you want to know about an industrial sofa can be understood just by looking at it. They're often made from both wood and metal, and come in neutral colours like Contemporary sofas. If you aren't big on having decorations all over, and instead prefer only having the essentials in your living room, you can safely select an Industrial sofa. If Industrial sofas were people, they'd be laid-back and easy to be around.

Scandinavian

Scandinavian furniture is built to last and to look good. Usually boasting naturally-coloured wood legs and clean designs, you can expect a Scandinavian sofa to be neither too bulky nor too minimal. Because of their simplicity and lighter colours, Scandinavian sofas look dazzling when placed among other light and bright furniture and decorations. A Scandinavian can be a breath of fresh air in your living room.

Outdoor

An outdoor sofa provides comfortable seating for you and your guests in the beautiful outdoors. We build our outdoor sofas from high quality and ultra weather resistant materials, so they'll be sure to last as long as you need them to.

Fabric

You've already read about the different sizes and styles of sofa we offer. Our sofas also come in a variety of materials.

Classic

Our classic material is made from tightly woven threads for superior toughness, and it is soft and smooth. This material is timeless and is a great all-around material, as it can be cleaned easily. It would look and feel great in any room.

Velvet

Velvet looks extraordinary. It also feels silky soft to the touch. Indulge yourself by investing in a velvet sofa. Our velvet sofas come in a variety of colors — both flashy and neutral — so you'll be sure to find a colour that suits your style. They also have a built in stain resistance that is suitable for homes with pets and young children. 

Leather

Leather sofas are extremely durable and can be perfect candidates for homes with pets, children, or rowdy guests. However just like skin it can be prone to marks, so don’t let your pets think it's a scratching post. Leather is the perfect choice if anyone in your household has allergies, as it does not trap pet hair or dander like other materials do. However, leather can be hard to maintain, as it requires more maintenance to keep it looking like new.

Signature Premium

Our exclusive signature fabric blend can be easily cleaned, looks stylish, and lasts a long time. It's soft like linen, but even softer. Signature Premium material has a gentle texture to it and comes in timeless, mostly neutral light and dark colours. 

Colour

A sofa's colour is the last thing you'll have to consider when picking out a sofa.

Neutral

A neutral-coloured sofa isn't necessarily a boring one. A neutral-coloured sofa can be just the sofa for you if you want a relaxing and cosy home. Sometimes bright colours can be overwhelming or too in-your-face. A calm sofa provides you and your guests with the ideal room to relax in.

Bright

A brightly-coloured sofa can really make your whole room pop. 

A bold sofa in a neutral or monotone room will place the room's focus almost entirely on your sofa. 

Place a bold sofa in a room with colourful walls or furniture and your whole room will feel fresh and exciting.

When deciding whether to get a brighter-coloured sofa, you should ask yourself whether you want the sofa to stand out in the entire room. Depending on your answer, you can decorate the rest of your room accordingly.
