The sofa is one of the most important elements in the living area; it is the center of the home, the symbol of conviviality, the key point of the living room. When we decide to spend a lonely day at home, the sofa becomes our best friend, when we host parties, it becomes the protagonist. That is why when we choose a sofa for our home, we are not only looking for a comfortable piece, but also something that can fit perfectly into the style of the house and match our personality. It is needless to say that factors such as the size of the room and the disposition of the other furniture are fundamental in the choice of a suitable couch, but we must not let these characteristics overshadow the importance of the design. Our sofa will be like our baseness card: it will introduce us to whomever enters our living room, telling them something about ourselves. Are you exuberant and eccentric? Do you love classic design or ultra modern shapes? Your couch, as much as the rest of your décor, must be a representative of your idea of style, of your taste and personality. In this article you will find some advice on how to find the sofa that suits you best, with five different styles to choose from.
Minimalism and purity
If you are all about purity and simplicity, minimalism is the perfect furniture style for you. Smooth lines, linear shapes and attention to details will be the characteristics that will make your home décor stand out from everyone else’s. Whether in large spaces or in small living rooms, the linear style of minimal shape sofa matches perfectly with white, black and gray. Although we can hazard nuances of different colors it is difficult to associate tones that better interpret this style: after all, purity and simplicity must be pursued in color choice too. If you want to go for brighter colors, be careful to wisely balance them, and do not break the equilibrium the minimal shapes created in the room.
An industrial-chic home décor will be perfect for someone with a unique personality, who doesn’t fit in the conventional interior design concepts, and is looking for a raw and primitive allure. An environment with concrete floors, brick walls and iron elements will perfectly match with a sofa in leather or suede, better if with a lived-in effect. As far as color palette go, choose something that can exalt the industrial vibe of the room in the best way. For example, if the protagonist of your living area is a wonderful brick wall, opt for a soft tone for the sofa covering: the contrast will enhance the beauty of each element.
