The main “ingredients” of your dream sofa! Part 2

2 reading time

Last time we discussed the most practical features you need to look for when choosing the perfect sofa for you. But we’re talking about your home and this is not a “problem” to be solved as a mathematical equation, an artistic approach is needed.

Ideally, you want your sofa to match the overall theme of the room and enhance the aesthetics and functionality of your space. So, this is where two other features come in, that you need to look for, when choosing your furnishings and are the ones which will give character and visual appeal to the outcome. Let’s take a look at them:

  • Style

The style of the sofa you choose should match the overall aesthetic of the room. Choose something that is practical, stylish and in harmony with the rest of the living room layout.

Classic furniture is always a timeless choice. A classic sofa exudes calm and confidence and will never go out of fashion. On the other hand, modern furniture features mainly neutral tones such as white and grey, combined with rigid lines. Something like this would suit your space if you want a sofa that blends seamlessly with a minimalist layout, as part of a relaxed room with a neutral colour scheme.

If what you’re looking for is a sofa that will “withstand” changes in decor and trends, then you should opt for a style that is less eye-catching and more “calm”. This way you’ll have more flexibility to mix-and-match styles and colours, if you ever want to redecorate your home.

  • Material

The essence of a functional and aesthetically pleasing sofa lies in its material, so to keep your sofa looking flawless in your space, it’s important to choose the right fabric.

The fabric of a sofa is what gives it its “character” and will color your living room according to your needs. On the other hand, you must never forget that you will spend many moments that will include food and drinks with friends. That’s why you must choose a fabric that can withstand the passage of time.

At Alexandros Furniture you will find a wide collection of waterproof and stain resistant fabrics that can withstand daily wear and tear, so that you can actually live in your living room carefree!

Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages, so ultimately the choice depends on your living space and lifestyle. On our website you can explore all the different styles and colours we have to offer.
