This low-lying couch combines the best of both worlds: Thanks to its curvy lucite legs, the sofa bottom looks like it's laying flat on the ground. But there's enough room for air and light to pass through, making this an ideal pick for rooms with either high or low ceilings. And the Chesterfield‘s tufted, jewel-toned velvet fabric adds a luxurious, modern vibe to any living room.

If you'd like to recreate this look exactly, the paint used was Montana Colors' Greyhound Brown, but you could also use spray paint specially formulated for painting vinyl (pleather) and fabric. I know from experience that it works great. And if any of you do start spray painting your furniture, be sure to tell us all about it! Meri leaves us with these wise words of advice that apply to projects large and small: "Wear a mask when you spray paint."

However, sectionals can work beautifully when pulled away from the walls. Since they provide so much seating they’re not often accompanied by a lot of other pieces of furniture, meaning you’ve got the space to play around with them. So give them some breathing room and allow space behind to walk. In some cases, sectionals can also work as room dividers, with one side providing a visual break between spaces. So don't get pigeonholed by the shape, and make your sectional work for your space.

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.

A small amount of spray adhesive applied to the foam can help the batting stick to it so it stays in place once you put the covers back on. If possible, have someone help you put the covers back on the cushions. All those layers of batting make it a tight fit- but that is what you're looking for, so ask someone to lend a hand to make your job less painful.

Think seriously about this couch and its intended use. Will it be a one-size-fits-all, everyone-is-welcome (including Fido!) family couch? Consider microfiber upholstery, which can handle a bit of rough-housing. Definitely don’t pick silk, which will rip the second your kitten’s claws come out. Or are you hoping to order a showcase piece for your formal living room? Go for silk, or pick something with a lot of texture.

Of course, you'll need to cut the legs down to the proper height (between 15" and 22") for your seating space, but the large surface will be convenient for many purposes, including playing games, doing homework, and entertaining.

A coffee table should be chosen in a proper proportion for the size of the room and the sofa in front of which it stands. A large square room would look strange with a small, delicate oval glass-topped coffee table, just as a small room would be cramped with a large, heavy, dark-painted square coffee table.

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.
