TAKE A SEAT

House Beautiful (UK) - - Sofas And Armchairs -

Mea­sure up your room and take note of tight spa­ces and door­ways. Make sure that the sofa can fit through th­ese when it’s de­liv­ered.

Most so­fas come in sev­eral sizes. A large op­tion usu­ally seats three adults com­fort­ably, while a small one will fit two.

Snug­glers are like an over­sized arm­chair and are de­signed to seat two, or of­fer gen­er­ous space for one.

The arms of a sofa can take up a lot of space, so nar­row arm­rests are ideal for smaller rooms. High seat backs work best in rooms with lofty ceil­ings.

Open-plan lay­outs are great for mod­u­lar so­fas or large cor­ner styles.

Fixed backs are sprung and up­hol­stered, while scat­ter backs fea­ture a loose col­lec­tion of cush­ions against an up­hol­stered back. Cush­ion-back so­fas come with two or three box-sided cush­ions along the rear.

Re­mov­able cov­ers that can be cleaned are an ad­van­tage in fam­ily homes. For fixed cov­ers, you can opt for stain-guard pro­tec­tion.

For a co-or­di­nated look, choose a range that comes with a match­ing arm­chair, foot­stool and cush­ions.
