Things You Should Know About Sofa Styles

Lying on a comfy and spacious sofa, with your back leaning against a cushioned armrest. Legs stretched out, unbend. While you lazily yawn, all contented, after you are done with your day. Isn’t it the ideal way you want to use your sofa set?

The modern market has evolved so many designs that not only provide comfort but charm the aesthetics of the living room in unique ways. There are many options for styles of sofas in the market, but the majority of people are uninformed.

So, let’s dive into the world of sofas and find out.

Chesterfield Sofa: Sofa of the European Royalty

This is a lavish sofa design, which was popularised by the Duke of Chesterfield around the early eighteenth century. Since then, it is adorning palaces and royal abodes.

Since, in this sofa, the armrests and the backrests are of the same height so, this sofa can be easily spotted by the distinctive design.

Note: The armrests can be either rolled-type or straight.

The fabric is in the deep buttoned tufted pattern. The cushion seats are large enough to provide extra comfort.

Multi-Utility Sofa cum Beds

As the name suggests, it is a multi-utility furniture which can be used both as a sofa and a bed. It is available in both wooden as well as upholstery fabric options.

A small sleeping compartment can be drawn out from the cushion box. In some other types, the sofa can be unfolded to turn it into a sleeping bed.

Fold-able Sleeping Futons

The word ‘Futon’ was traditionally used in Japan for a fold-able mattress, which could be used for seating after folding.

In the west, the term is now used for a folding bed. Futons are simple sofa designs that can be unfolded to make a bed. So, this makes it a particular kind of sofa-bed.

These are upholstered sofa options with tuft-patterned upholstery.

Sleek and Chic Chaise Lounges

This sofa gives a contemporary regal look and is a perfect fit for the modern interiors. A chaise can also be used in bedrooms. It may or may not have a back and armrest-or it may have a single arm and a half backrest.

This is an upholstered sofa, which is also available in deep buttoned and tufted pattern.

Sectional Sofas: Arrange your Imagination

These sofas have multiple separated sections, which can be arranged in different positions, according to personal needs. These can be arranged to give a U-shape or L-shape to the sofa.

Some of the sections may not have a back or armrests-such sections are called Ottoman sections. These type of sofas are generally available only in fabric options.

L-Shaped Corner Sofas for Extra Comfort

As the name suggests, these sofas are L shaped and can be placed in the corner. This sofa design has two or three extended seats. The extensions can be either to the left or right.

The extended side can be used for sitting comfortably. The ottoman sections can be used as foot-rest.

This sofa is very useful for living rooms with compact or small areas.

Give an Oriental Look with Divans

The last type of sofa in our list is Divans. It is a sofa without a back or armrest. These sofas are space savvy and can be functionally used for sleeping as well.

Divans can be adorned by using cushions and bolsters. These furniture units impart an oriental look to the room decor. Some variants in the market are designed in ethnic styles.
