Also called a box arm, a square arm gives has a modern, tailored look, with straight lines and angles. Square arms are useful for entertaining, as they can serve as seats. However, they are not as comfortable as rolled arms for lounging. Tuxedo arms are slightly flared arms that have the same height as the sofa back.
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.
The most common approach is to choose a sofa that complements the other decor and is not the center of attention nor camouflaged into the wall color. This is why neutral sofa colors are the most popular for most homes.
