Years go by, times change and people grow. Along the way, they adopt new attitudes, experiences, tastes and opinions. And because of this unavoidable phenomenon, humans form the need for their homes to change too. Sometimes, the change is as simple as re-arranging existing furniture within rooms. Sometimes, it’s a new paint job. Sometimes, people hang newly acquired works of art on their walls. But you know it’s a major change when the time comes to replace your sofa.
The sofa is a vital part of any home. It is probably the place where people sit most, and the centerpiece of furniture in the largest room of the house. To put it plainly, sofas are one of the most important parts of home interior design. If you’re looking to replace your sofa, read on for some suggestions that range from formal to funky, and not to mention “comfy”.
Sectional sofa. If you’re looking to fill a large space with a comfortable island of cushiness, then a sectional sofa is a good option for you. Not only do sectionals create an excess of seating area, but they can really fill and shape the space that they’re placed in.
Settee sofa. If you are looking to up the class factor, you might be interested in a cozy settee sofa for the new look. These antique-style loveseats have exposed wooden frames and silk upholstery. They look like something straight out of a parlor room in a French Rococo mansion.
Circular sofa. A hip, cutting-edge and ultra-modern circular sofa would look magnificent in the middle of a living room. Perhaps what is most intriguing about the circular sofa, (other than its circular shape) is the weird dynamic for conversation that it creates. If three people were sitting around a circular sofa, they would all be facing away from each other, outward looking at different corners of the room. A circular sofa could only lead to exciting and interesting things.
Futon. Lastly, you can always change things up by replacing your old sofa with a futon. Futons give off a simplified, modern look that can Zen out your living space. Plus, since they easily unfold into beds, they are great for hosting guests.
Get creative when going out to pick a new couch, but make sure to remember, that whatever interior design decisions you make, you’ll have to sit on for a long time…
