Now that you know whether you want to sit IN or ON your sofa, I have a few suggestions for sofas based on a few different aspects: Style, Comfort, and Affordability.
If you desire a high style sofa and don’t mind paying for it, B&B Italia’s classic Charles sofa is available as a sofa or a sectional. It also happens to be comfortable. This sofa is designed to sit low to the ground. In addition, it’s deep. It’s actually great for lounging on, watching television or curling up with a book or a nook.
Another stylish and comfortable alternative that is very affordable is the Jane Bi-Sectional. This sofa has been featured several times because it has a classic Mid-Century Modern style that is updated for today’s living spaces with stainless steel legs and chic and durable wool blend fabric. Sit on it or sit in it. It features a chaise lounge that can be “flipped” to either the right or the left side of the sofa. How perfect is that?
The Chester sofa, a Weisshouse client favorite is classic styling with modern proportions. This style is a sit ON it kind of sofa but it’s also incredibly comfortable and affordable. “Beautifully proportioned button-tufted version of that icon of English libraries. Pleated roll arm at the same height as the back; tight seat left untufted for comfort. Gracefully turned feet in front, all with ferrules.” Chester is available in several widths as well as a chair and ottoman.
One of my favorite design websites, Houzz.com who also has a really cool app for the iPhone has some fabulous tips of their own for selecting the perfect sofa:
1. Consider size first
2. Decide exactly how the sofa will be oriented
3. Determine which shape will suit the room best
4. Research upholstery materials. Which will be best for you?
5. Choose a style that complements your home
6. Pick a color: bright, printed, or neutral?
