With the thought of “Happiness is Home” in my mind I came out on a tour to the street where the market for furniture is situated. Decor being one essential part for any house plays a vital role in transforming it to be your home. We had our house renovation going on, which asked for a wholesome repair and transformation to make it a little in-trend and with according to the modern times.
During this time I was accompanied by a friend who came along to help me buy the furniture appropriate to my house. It was a mere instance, which taught me about the different types of sofas the outlet had to offer. I mean who generally thinks about those different types of sofas which distinguish in their size, design, and shape. Well, after this recent visit of mine for the decor shopping I learned that interiors are meant to understand and are supposed to be taken seriously.
And so, are the furniture and other catalogues which one plans to place in their house, well here are the top 10 styles of sofas which you should definitely know in order to take a smart decision for a better home this time. Check out:
See the way the legs of this sofa curve outward and down, sort of like the ballet movement? This style of sofa – popular during the first half of the 18th century – is characteristic of Queen Anne, Louis XV, and Chippendale furniture.
The camelback sofa has an arched back that reaches a higher point on either side – just like the animal, it’s named after. According to Apartment Therapy, the back typically has one or two humps. It’s a traditional style that creates an elegant look in any home.
According to Houzz, “chaise” derives from the term “chaise lounge,” meaning long-chair. This illustration recalls a more contemporary shape, but the seat can also be contoured to your back. Think: The sort of sofa you might see in a psychiatrist’s office.
The easiest way to know if the sofa in question is a Chesterfield? Check out the deep button tufting on the back. The arms of the couch are rolled, and are the same height as the back, according to One Kings Lane. Often made of leather, it’s the sort of piece you would expect in a sophisticated library.
This one’s easy. Someone points out, a daybed can be used as a couch by day and a bed by night. If you have houseguests often, it’s a natural choice for when you need extra sleeping space.
ENGLISH ROLL ARM
The rounded arms define this style of sofa, whose loose cushions on the bottom make it a super comfy choice. The back of the seat is typically tight – meaning that the cushions aren’t removable, according to McGrath II. Think: The Central Perk couch on “Friends.”
Unlike the English Roll Arm sofa, the back cushions of a Lawson are also loose, according to eHow. The arms aren’t necessarily rounded, either. A perfect option for your media room, if we do say so ourselves.
Also known as a “love seat,” the settee is a go-to for small-space dwellers, according to One Kings Lane. This settee is defined by a straight back and space for two to sit comfortably.
Like the Chesterfield sofa, the arms and back of the tuxedo sofa are the same height. Unlike the Chesterfield sofa, the couch is clean-lined and geometric and often upholstered with fabric. This buttoned-up style is the furniture equivalent of the suit it’s named after timeless and modern all at once.
Characterized by a clean-lined, rectangular shape, tufted back and seat cushions, and solid, wood legs, the Mid-Century sofa is the ideal choice if you love the “Mad Men” aesthetic.
So, have fun while setting up a house into a home.
