Do you like to sit with your legs curled up? Do you like to lie down on it? Do you feel happiest sitting in the center? Consider the height and depth of the seat. For taller people, it is best to have deeper seats. If you find it hard to rise from a seated position, try a shallower seat.

For more seating in small rooms or even as a conversation area in larger room, two love seats can be positioned facing each other. Love seats are also sometimes referred to as "apartment-sized sofas" as they are a smaller scale and better suited to smaller spaces. Some love seats can also be perfect for bedrooms, kitchens, or entry ways.

For instance, a camel-back sofa will be highest in the center. Measure from there to the floor because sometimes sofa legs are attached. If the sofa legs are screwed on, you might be able to get away with just measuring from the top to the bottom of the sofa. If that measurement passes through the entryway, then you can screw the legs on once you have the sofa inside the room.

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.

A more flexible style option is choosing a set of upholstered chairs to complement your new sofa. The chairs don't have to be an exact match for the sofa but can incorporate the sofa´s color in a pattern or texture. Using a set of chairs instead of a matching loveseat gives you even more opportunities to add color from your color palette and more options for furniture placement.

The consistency in color ensures continuity. Try clustering trios of geometrically-patterned pillows together. Space them out between each sofa cushion for a look that’s anchored, yet casually rustic at the same time.

The way to do this is to measure from the outside edge of the seat all the way to the back. It is best to do it from one of the sides. The next step is to measure the diagonal depth of the sofa. You do this by placing a straight tape measure from the top back of the frame to the bottom front.

These are then attached to the frame to make a platform for the cushions. Webbing can be made of either natural or man-made fibers, and if it is used alone doesn’t make for very strong support. In better-quality sofas, it is used with a tensioner that fastens the webbing securely to the frame. The web suspension is the least preferable of the seating support options.
