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.
The sofa is the biggest piece in any living room, so it’s the first thing that needs to be placed. Sometimes you can walk into a room and it seems obvious where the sofa should go, but in other rooms, it's not so easy. As a general rule the sofa should be facing the focal point, but if there's no natural focal point what do you do? Here are some sofa placement tips to help you figure it out.
Don´t forget to run your hand over the back of the sofa before buying. A hollow back is indicative of poor construction. You want it to be padded. Do test it out before buying. While you´re in the store sit down, lie down, put your feet up – if you‘re going to be doing it at home you should try it first in the store (within reason). Don‘t forget to measure. Make sure to take note of the width, depthe, height, seat height and arm height.
