The back of a curved-back sofa curves all the way around so that it forms one solid piece with the arms, which are not attached separately. A pillow back sofa has more pillows than seat cushions, and therefore a softer feel. This style offers comfort that can also be adjusted by moving the pillows around. It does require more upkeep, though.
A camel back is a traditional sofa back that is shaped much like a camel‘s hump, raised in the middle, and sloping down lower at the ends. It often imparts a formal look. Deep vertical grooves on a tight back are the distinguishing features of a channel back. Loose cushions are separate from the sofa back, as opposed to attached back sofas. This allows for covers to be easily removed for cleaning.
An English arm is low and is set back from the front edge of the seat. English arms are low-profile and suitable if you like to take naps on your sofa. They are also good for small spaces, as they don‘t project beyond the body of the sofa. The front part of a pleated sofa arm is covered by fabric that is continued from the inside of the arm.
