If you are looking for a more formal feeling for your living room, the standard three person sofa is one way to go. These sofas typically have a more traditional look to them. However, you can still have the seating capacity of a sectional. Pair your sofa up with a loveseat or a second sofa. Depending on how formal you want your living room, you may not have a television. But if you have a fireplace, you want your main sofa facing it. Arrange your loveseat or second sofa off to its side moving towards the fireplace. If you do not have a fireplace, you have the opportunity to design the perfect area for friends and family to gather and catch up with each other. Placing your two sofas directly opposite each other crates a nice warm gathering spot. For some, however, this may seem a little stuffy and old fashioned. If so, you can place a second sofa running diagonally on one side and other chairs or loveseat on the other side running diagonally as well. Do this so you create a triangle instead of a square, with your sofa table in the middle. This way, you can get a formal look yet contemporary feel at the same time.
New couch covers can work wonders at giving tired looking furniture a much-needed new look, for not much effort or expense. If the upholstery on your couch is looking worn or outdated, then fitting a sofa slipcover over the top can instantly give it a fresh lease of life. Couch slipcovers are designed to be really easy to stretch into place for a snug-fitting appearance, and most can be machine-washed, which means there is no need to stress about pets or children getting dirty marks on your favorite sofa!
The style of the furniture depends on the style of the living room or the patio. The color and style of the wall of the living room will be a major deciding factor for the selection of the sofas, couches, or lounges. There are mainly two types of designs for furniture-the contemporary types and the traditional types. The contemporary types of furniture would have modern looks and they are slightly expensive than the traditional types.
Probably more money is spent on this room than in any other place in the house since it tends to be larger, provide various spaces, can offer many uses and provides a place for entertaining. A coffee table, two end tables, a large couch, and love seat can make up a set for living room furniture. Some people wish to add a couple of matching chairs or recliners, a desk, and perhaps a couple of plant stands for decorative purposes.
So it is possible to combine formal and contemporary, you just need to use your imagination. Once you have you are couch, you can finish decorating your living room by finding pieces that match. A table with family photos or a fresh cut flowers will go with either formal or informal decor. A hutch for treasured knick knacks will also go well. Art work or a mirror for your walls. But it all starts with your sofa. Once you pick out the one that is right for you, everything else will fall into place.
The daybed was the most popular and common kind of sofa in the 17th century. Especially into the 19th century the sofa, couch, or lounge bed was often thought of as a ladies lounging seat. However, reverting back further in history, men would often lounge as they ate or relaxed, and the women would stand or sit in chairs. As a matter of fact, it was not until the industrial era that sofas began to appear eventually in the homes of more and more common people. Soon it became so that virtually everyone, singles, couples, and / or whole families, would acquire at least one sofa for their home.
You also want to make sure that your lounge matches the decor of the rest of the house. If you have a contemporary home, you will want to compliment your living area with a modern style lounge. If you already have more traditional furnishings, you will want to select a sofa that suits the look of your home.
