Rachele Dello Russo August 3, 2019 Sofas & Couches
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.
You can look for a re-upholsterer near you (always an option), but you may be surprised to find that even your sofa can be renewed online. Fabric manufacturers now make their custom sewing work available through online web retail stores, particularly sellers of futon covers and bedding collections. Some of our finest American fabric manufacturers collectively offer thousands of fabrics from which to choose, including fabrics from top designers, at pretty reasonable prices.
Measuring the size of the doors is also very important before you buy the furniture for the indoors. If you have bought a larger sofa, couch, or lounge for the living room, there are chances that it may not get through the main door of the house. Most sofas, couches, or lounges are one piece sofas, couches, or lounges. This means that you have to break them to split them.
Not many people collect antique sofas -or have sofas of older styles custom designed. I do not think it is a bad idea, actually. If one were to decorate one home with an antique theme -with beautiful furniture, accessories and other decor, a lounge similar to the designs used in ancient Rome may be extremely beautiful. The distinct look of such a motif would be incredibly impressive to your guests, as well as an elegant environment for you and your family.
There are many arrangements that can be applied to this traditional space in just about everybody home. Lines and shapes accent much of the modern living room furniture of today and those who appreciate less decoration and more artsy design will enjoy the look of contemporary pieces.
Also use the simple rule that dark colors advance and pale ones recede -a light sofa makes a room look larger than a darker one. Always take a tape measure with you when you shop to doublecheck measurements.
