Anytime you´re arranging furniture you have to think about balance. When too many visually heavy things are on one side of the room the entire space looks unbalanced. Since sofas tend to be large in scale they take up quite a bit of visual space, and they require something of equal weight across from them to balance out the room. This is why you often see two chairs placed directly across from a sofa. Together the chairs balance out the weight of the sofa.
You need to make sure it will fit through doorways, around corners, and up the stairs if necessary. DO have it covered in an appropriate fabric. If you have kids and pets you’ll want something that is either easy to clean or can hide spills and dirt. DO become familiar with sofa styles before choosing. Do you want high arms (tuxedo sofa), medium arms (lawson) low arms (bridgewater) or no arms (slipper)? D o you want curvy and round or straight and streamlined? Do you want one long cushion on the seat or several? Think about all these things before you buy.
A tight back in a sofa is upholstered but does not have loose cushions. The back has a firm feel and can provide a clean, tailored, and formal look. A waterfall sofa back has two or more vertical layers of gathered and billowing cushions that are attached to the back. Sofa seats are more than just places to discover lost items. The right feel of a seat is critical to your enjoyment of a sofa.
