WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR:
Aesthetically pleasing doesn’t automatically equate to comfortable, so choose wisely; your seating should provide support for your posture. Consider padded couches if you like feeling cocooned – an extra layer of filling does the trick nicely.
Ergonomic designs are all the rage in today’s aesthetics. Look out for functional seating that serves the purpose you have in mind. Consider a daybed if you’re furnishing a spare bedroom; you’ll be able to use it as a couch for reading, or as a guest bed when you have family over.
Depending on where the couch or armchair is meant to go, you’ll want to take the necessary measurements before heading into the shops. Otherwise, you run the risk of bringing home a piece that’s either too large, or too small; neither of these scenarios is ideal.
