To achieve a Scandi-inspired, minimalist look, pair a set of slouchy square pillows in one corner of the sofa (preferably one solid and one patterned), and prop a smaller, rectangular-shaped pillow in the center of the other cushion. Instead of predictably tucking a single pillow into the corner of your sofa, why not take inspiration from Cottage Cloth and place a set facing inward? We love her choice of contrasting striped fabric, too.

It's not that I didn't want one or need one. I just never found just the right coffee table that I wanted. Maybe I´ve procrastinated too long, now. I am still looking.

I love the drama of the black wall and the way it makes the newly brown couch pop almost as if it‘s orange. I will always love fussy furniture painted in a solid color, and that glossy black coffee table is one of the best versions out there. The rug is a fabulous anchor to a primarily black-and-white room. The molded chair is the perfect combination of black, white, and wood, and it enhances the mid-century modern appeal of the sofa.

The arms hold up fine, even with the wear, tear, and weight of rambunctious family members, friends, and pets. A year later, they still look brand new. The seat cushions are made of memory foam which will mold itself to the shape of your body for extra comfort and support. After a year of use, the Kivik sofas have proved to be as comfortable as they seemed in the IKEA showroom. The fabric is easy to remove and machine washable. The fabric that we chose was a nubby weave, which has probably helped the sofa´ s staying power because the fabric still looks new.

When you have a sofa that dates back over a century, and you have invested good money in it, reupholstering it makes sense. This is not something that can be replaced by a brand new sofa. In this case, by reupholstering, you are actually restoring an antique. However, if this is an investment, this should not be attempted on your own. Get a qualified professional to do it, and it is going to be costly.

Now that you have considered the frame and seating support, it is time to look at what kind of filling is used for the cushions. The most common filling is high-density polyurethane. The higher the density, the firmer the cushion will be. Foam can be wrapped in softer material or cotton to make it softer. Dacron-wrapped foam is the cheapest option, but it won’t last as long.

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.

Buttery soft saddle leather creates a cushioned, hyper-comfortable couch that demands your guests’ attention. Pair with rich bronze accessories, and don't forget to add texture using rugs, blankets, and greenery—otherwise, you risk the bold leather overwhelming the space.

On its homepage, the company has a video of an eight-year-old putting a sofa together in five minutes. What is even better, the furniture can be disassembled just as easily when moving, and then set up again without using any tools at all.

Whether you are placing it against a wall or sitting it in an open space, it needs to fit that space. You also want it to be the same scale as your other furniture and the room as a whole.
