Lately we’ve been helping a lot of clients select new sofas so we thought it was a good time to let you in on some of our designer-knowledge about sofas.

There are so many options today including the popular standard sofas with

Fabrics come in everything from delicate linens to fabrics with higher durability for an active family.

Based on your personal style there are several great sofa options for you:

Traditional:

If your style is traditional you might want to look for a sofa with rounded arms and potentially a fabric apron on the bottom to hide the legs. Camelback sofas like the one above feel appropriate in a traditional home. Often the welting (the corded trim around the edges) would be the same as  the fabric on the sofa itself.

Transitional:

If your style is transitional you might consider a sofa with some nailhead trim or a contrasted welting to bring some metals or other color into your space.  Transitional sofas often have exposed legs which you can match to your other wood tones.

Modern:

Modern styled sofas may be more fit for your home if you love the look of slim and squared-off arms. Interesting custom shapes can be made with pieces from a sectional by taking pieces away (like this mini-sofa) or  creating an extra-long sofa by adding pieces from a sectional.

There are some interesting features you may also want to look for in a sofa such as tufting details:

Sofas are important to our homes because they not only provide us a comfortable place to sit, but a place to interact with friends and family.
