In a home, sofas are one of the largest investments you will make. With such an investment piece - it is usually something that will be permanent so we always want to make the right choice. Here are a few styles that work best with any design style.
Three cushioned transitional sofa. Rolled arms Soft back Tight cushions. The most common of transitional sofas. IT's a timeless piece that can go from living space to family room and down to the basement.
Transitional style. This sofa has a slightly rounded arm set back from the front of the seat, often with a tight seat and slightly rolled back, no skirt, and low, turned legs on castors.
The bench cushion of this sofa makes it easier to have more people sitting in one couch than the traditional loose cushions.
A tuxedo sofa has the same straight lines as a Lawson but on a tuxedo the arms and back are the same height (although the cushions might be a bit higher on the back). This sofa looks like a classic tuxedo because of the straight lines and angled cushions on the back, but it's actually a kind of Lawson-tuxedo hybrid because the arms are lower than the back.
High arms and streamlined. This elegant piece shoes off the simple lines of a tuxedo sofa.
In the tuxedo sofa, the arms are as high as the back. It usually has fairly clean lines with straight or slightly flared arms. Some people find a lower arm more comfortable for resting, but with the right pillows, the tuxedo can be very cozy.
You may want to opt for a statement piece instead of investing in a large sofa. This breaks up the look of the living space and adds texture and color to an otherwise bland space.
A very modern sofa makes a BIG statement. Use it in a living space as a conversation piece surrounded by comfortable arm chairs.
