Sofas - Your Living Room's Welcome Mat

Whatever your decor style, the furniture you choose for your home says more about who you are than anything else you own. And regardless of your style, what you want from your furniture is for it to be inviting and welcoming. Sofas are the most important piece of furniture in your living room.

Usually, they are also the biggest piece of furniture in your living room. The rest of your living room’s decor revolves around your sofa choice. The ambiance you create in your living room is dictated by your sofa choice. Whether your decor style is modern, traditional, French Provincial, Craftsman style, mid-century, your sofa is the piece of furniture that creates the feel of your home. The materials used for the frame, the fabrics on the cushions, whether or not you have pillows or throws as accent pieces, all go together to make your living room particular to you.

When you create seating groupings, you are creating a flow of conversation for your guests. Sofas  can be sectional, which somewhat directs that flow in the direction of the sections. Some sectionals have ottomans for putting your feet up, for a more casual feel. Velvet and chenille sofas give you a feeling of luxury in their textures. Even more formally designed sofas can be warm and inviting and create a good conversational flow. It doesn’t matter if your sofa choice is an angular one, or one with rounded curves. They all say, “Sit on me”.

The sofas shown below are intended to be used as inspiration for you as you decide what style of sofa is right for you. All images and resource material are courtesy of Pinterest and the pics can be enlarged.
