With autumn just around the corner, nothing quite beats relaxing on a cosy leather sofa, when it’s dull and dreary outside. Leather sofa sets are an investment worth looking into, so here are some tips on how to pick out the perfect set for you, whether you’re buying for a family home, or a small apartment.
You can find sofas to suit any space and style – whether you’re looking for a classic two or three-seater leather sofa that will be the central focus point in a family living room, or a versatile sofa bed that can double up as an extra spot for guest, or even as a space saver in a small studio apartment. Before going for a sofa, it’s always best to measure up and think about colours and materials to suit your home.
If you’re lucky enough to have a large open space to play with, two seater sofas and three seater sofas can create an immediate positive impact in a room. Grouped together or spaced apart, a set of sofas can be used to add shape and style. Go for timeless options like black or neutral leather shades, as these will always work well, no matter how you choose to decorate the rest of the room.
Corner group sofas are another great option – perfect for a large living room. A corner group sofa creates a natural ‘snuggling’ nook, and is ideal for cosy gatherings. With an additional ‘chaise longue’ option to add on to the unit, you can increase the space and the comfort factor.
Another factor to consider is the variety of styles of leather sofa on offer. Traditional styles add a classic touch to a room, while more cutting edge contemporary styles mix chrome legs with sleek leather surfaces, giving a sharp touch. Feel free to mix and match to create your ideal living space – you can combine a traditional Chesterfield style sofa with a more modern minimalist style single arm chair, to add a cool stylish touch to your home.
Another very hand incarnation of the sofa is of course the sofa bed. Ideal as a spare bed in case of guest emergencies, or even to use as a main bed in a small studio apartment when you really want to save space – sofa beds have evolved considerably. Cosy as sofas, they are also just as plush and comfortable to sleep on. A large fold out style bed can provide a double mattress-sized sleeping space, while a smaller sofa bed is ideal if you only need a sleeping spot for a single person.
We hope that helps you get some ideas for some sofa styling action of your own!
