Sectional Sofas Are Here to Stay
Sectional sofas are here to stay, and there are all different shapes and sizes to accommodate any size and style of living room. One of the most popular types right now is the sofa chaise. A sofa chaise has the length of a generously-sized sofa with a chaise and longer seat cushion at one end. Often the chaise base is separate from the sofa frame, so it can be positioned on either side of the sofa for flexibility. A sofa chaise is the one of the best ways to maximize seating in a smaller space.
Sometimes, it’s the little details that make something special. And right now, sofas are all about tufting. Upholstered and leather sofas with tufted back cushions have been popular for well over a year now, and this detail is found in both traditional styles and mid-century modern looks. Tufting takes the formality of a sofa up a notch, and it also keeps the cushions looking like new longer. We think it’s quite a spiffy option for your living room!
Move over taupe, because gray is the new neutral when it comes to living rooms. And this trend in gray upholstery proves to have some staying power. The color has a certain urban sophistication not found in the sea of brown couches often seen in showrooms. Gray upholstery adds a bit of glamour to the ubiquitous espresso-finished furniture so many homes have, and provides a perfect backdrop for bright orange or teal accents.
