Which couch is right for your lounge?

We all want our homes to be an extension of our personalities, while creating a sophisticated space where we can relax with family and friend. Lounges are as unique as each person on earth.  No two lounges, windows or ambiance is the same.  That is why choosing the correct couch for your lounge is vital in creating your dream lounge.  Here are a few guidelines to assist in making your decision.

Timeless Classic

If you wish to create a timeless classical look and feel in your lounge, choose a couch that reflects this decor requirement

Tufted sofas have stood the test of time and is still as much of a statement piece as what it was in the 1700's when the design originated from the need for a comfortable couch while avoiding wrinkling of one's clothes.

Tufted couches are available in a wide range of upholstery finishes, from leather to material. Ensure you choose the correct colour to compliment the natural light and colour scheme of the room.

Cornered beauty

A square shaped lounge provides plenty space along the corners of the room to be filled with plush furniture the makes the most of every square meter of the room without taking away any space for movement.

A corner lounge suite is the perfect piece of furniture to use for rooms with big corners but not necessarily lots of space to move around. It makes the couch look bigger and more welcoming into the space. Fill the couches with soft, colour themed scatter cushions to add the final soft touch in an effort to create utopia right in your own living room.

Along the wall

Turn a long, often narrow space as found in many open-plan living spaces, into a piece of art with a big couch that not only makes a statement, but also compliments the room while providing a plush seating area.

Once you have found the perfect sofa for the wall, make the most of every inch around the couch and fill it with everything that you love.  Two coffee tables and narrow shelves on the wall for storage creates an open and modern feel while still ensuring that no clutter takes any attention away from your beautiful couch.

Bold is beautiful

Your living space should be an extension of your personality, every piece in your lounge carefully selected to create a harmonious ambiance that compliments you and make you feel at home.

Choose bold and bright furniture pieces that enhance the space without overpowering the rest of the room.  To accessorize the room, use pieces that are less bold which will put more emphasis on your bright couches.

Be mindful of space between the couches and leave ample gaps to allow for easy movement around the room.
