Cozy Up: The Perfect Sofa

When considering new furniture for your living room, there is no bigger selection than your sofa because you depend on it to be functional and beautiful and it’s an added bonus when it’s a timeless shape.  It grounds your space, sets the tone for your style, and gives you a point to build around.  Picking out that perfect sofa for lounging and relaxation is a great way to bring the family together or enjoy a glass of wine with your friends. Here are a few thoughts to help you begin to brainstorm for your new sofa!  Keep in mind that many sofa manufacturers are providing customization on sofa's. Whether it be length or depth, skirted or not, down inserts or nail heads I can guide you make the right investment for your home.

Selecting an oversized sofa or sectional with plenty of depth to sink into and length to stretch out on can help you pinpoint your ideal size.

Comfort is key!  
Don’t make the mistake of buying a sofa purely because you fall in love with the look of it.  If it’s uncomfortable and not to your taste, you won’t end up using it!  Don’t be afraid to test it out before committing!

Fabric & Color
Picking out soft, woven, and natural fabric for you sofa will create a luxurious, rich feel.  Your sofa is also a great opportunity to use a neutral color that you will love for a long time and can easily build versatile looks around or jump right in with a bold statement color!

Having trouble figuring out where to start out?  I love creating mood boards with tons of inspiration to hone in on my selections.  You’ll be surprised when you sit down and check out Houzz, Modernize, or your trusty Cozy Up Pinterest board and RDI blog, how you are drawn to particular shapes and finishes.  So assemble your inspirations and I will gladly give you direction!
