Finding the perfect sofa can make all the difference in the feel of a home. We invite you to look over the photos in the Design Studio Roche Bobois collection bellow and pick something interesting, comfortable and cozy for your living room! Go for a slipcovered model and the space leans more casual, thanks to the easy-to-care-for cushions, which can recover from a messy spill with a simple turn in the wash or trip to the dry cleaner’s. That’s not to say that a house built in the 1950s needs a modern sofa; rather, it’s that the seat you decide on should flow with its surroundings. If you stick to pieces you absolutely love, making sure everything goes well together shouldn’t be a problem.
What sofa upholstery is best for you? For families with young children or pets, a slipcovered sofa is a practical choice. Cotton, denim, or other washable fabrics work great for slipcovers as they can easily go from couch to washing machine to back to looking as good as new.
What shape sofa do you need? Does it fit in a corner? Try a corner or L-shaped sectional sofa. Up against a wall? You can probably get away with a deeper, comfortable couch. If your seating needs to be on an angle in the room, allow for plenty of room to walk around the sofa from both sides with ease.
An all white living room is always an elegant, sophisticated interior.
If the room doubles as a guest bedroom, a sofa bed or sleeper sofa is a great option. Folded up it makes for good seating; unfolded, it does double-duty as a bed. A chaise or daybed would also be a great option for such a multipurpose room. On a budget? Some modern futons are cheap and work as both a couch and additional sleeping area.
