One of the biggest furniture investments you´ll make is a sofa. Sofas cost a lot of money, they take up a lot of space, and they´re where you and your family will likely spend a lot of time. So make sure you know what you‘re doing before you go out and buy one. Check out these sofa do‘s and don’t to make sure you get the best sofa for your investment.
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.
Once you decide if your sofa will be an accent or neutral color, you'll need to decide if your sofa will be light or dark. Your floor color has a big effect on choosing the right sofa color. If you´re considering a potential sofa sitting on your floor, will it float on a sea of dark wood flooring or carpet or will it blend into it? Since a sofa is traditionally large and upholstered, and most fabric absorbs light, it can darken a room considerably.
