A neat line, accentuated by minimalistic multifunctional furniture, is a major trend today. Born out of the need to make do with the diminishing living space, the trend has caught the fancy of designers and consumers alike. This trend has not spared even the sofa which has undergone a major metamorphosis without losing out on its universal appeal.
Contouring with sofa
As the living and the dining spaces are blending and reducing in size, it is becoming necessary to have furniture that do the work of a dividing wall without encroaching on the available space. The sofas are used to create the contours of the living area and separate it from the dining area. The classic ones are the “L” shaped sofas, the semi circle sofas or even the 3+2 seaters.
Aesthetics and efficiency can be combined to give you the décor that you desire. Some of the furniture can efficiently be converted to beds or storage units to hold books etc. The “L “shaped sofas can double up as beds or lounges. The larger sofa of the 3+2 seater can include a pull out mattress to form a bed when required. Only ensure that the style and design of the furniture matches what you had in mind for your home. Combining differently styled pieces of chairs and sofas enhance the eclectic beauty of the décor.
The sofas are available in various materials. The body of the sofa could be made of materials ranging from wood to metals like steel. For the upholstery, pick material that will suit your requirements and living conditions. Getting suede for the upholstery does not make sense if there are children and pets at home. The materials range from leather to cotton to fine jute fabric.
