When you buy a new sofa, don't feel obligated to purchase a matching love seat. A more flexible style option is choosing a set of upholstered chairs to complement your new sofa. The chairs don't have to be an exact match for the sofa but can incorporate the sofa´s color in a pattern or texture. Using a set of chairs instead of a matching loveseat gives you even more opportunities to add color from your color palette and more options for furniture placement.
Knowing how to identify each main part and its variations can help you describe the sofa you want to a salesperson or designer. Understanding the basics of sofa construction can make you a shrewd judge of sofa quality. The arms define the ends of a sofa and play a critical role in the overall look and function of the piece.
A cushioned seat is usually made up of two or three cushions. Since these cushions are made to support the weight of the sitter, they are usually firmer than back cushions. The cushions may be square or rectangular, depending on the number of cushions on the seat. Sometimes the end cushions are T-shaped to accommodate the arms. Cushioned seat covers typically are removable.
