Choose Sofa Style

Make sure your new sofa complements the style of your current or planned decor. Sofas are large and usually stand out from other furniture and accessories in your room but it should match them in terms of design, shape, colour etc.

For traditional style interior, think about a classic sofa with rolled arms and contoured back. Traditional sofas often feature a smooth shapre, tufted back and cushions, as well as wooden legs.

For a contemporary style room look for a modern design sofa. These tend to have cleaner lines and rather simple and sharp shape.
