Selecting the Perfect Sofa for Your Living Room
Factors to Consider When Deciding on a New High-End Sofa for Your Living Room
The modern-day living room is a far cry from the parlours or sitting rooms of previous eras. Whereas the latter were often reserved for the purposes of formal social events or receiving guests, including visitations for the recently deceased, the living rooms of today serve many recreational and social needs for homeowners and their families.
Having transformed from the more ceremonial conventions of the past, the living rooms in current Toronto and area households can be hosts to many diverse activities; for example:
- Quiet reflection/relaxation
- Home entertainment centres
- In-home bridal or baby showers
- Celebrating birthdays/anniversaries
- After-dinner drinks and conversation
- Enjoying television, music, a good book
Regardless of how homeowners prefer to use their living rooms, there are two elements that generally run consistent throughout: the room décor tends to be a reflection of homeowner personality, and the room itself needs to be comfortable. And these factors are most often predicated on the choice of living room sofa.
Consequently, it is incumbent on a homeowner to select the right (perfect) sofa rather than settling for any sofa simply because there has to be one in their living room. In turn, the ideal sofa must therefore offer a combination of:
- Aesthetic Appeal
As part of their decision-making process for a new living room sofa, prospective buyers may want to consider the following factors:
- Size – in relation to floor space and other living room furniture
- Orientation – positioning re: how living room is most often used
- Shape – form that best suits functionality (round, L-Shape, linear)
- Style – complimentary to the furniture/décor throughout the home
- Material – choose an upholstery that satisfies aesthetics and function
- Colour – more neutral or a bright statement? solid or bold/unique print?

As identified above, one of the important considerations when purchasing a new living room sofa is the size of the piece; for many buyers, references to size could likely be interpreted as the physical dimensions of the sofa, as in its height, length, and depth. Yet another way to assess sofa size is by the number of people that it can sit comfortably at any given time.
