What about a red contemporary sofa in your living room? This is often the first room that visitors see when they walk through your front door, and the space sets the tone for how guests feel about the rest of your home. Your living room is also a place for entertaining friends and relaxing with family and its design should reflect that.
A sofa can also stand out even if it has a very simple color. To make sure that happens, you have to place against a contrasting background. In this case, for example, these two grey sofas sit on a white area rug so they stand out without featuring a bold color.
It’s important to determine your priorities when selecting the upholstery material for a sofa. For example, if you want the living room to look elegant and classy, you can get a leather sofa. Fabric is considered more casual. The most durable fabric options include cotton, linen and synthetic microfiber. If you have pets or small kids, stay away from materials that stain easily or are difficult to maintain.
Perhaps this should be the first step when choosing a sofa. Decide where the sofa will be placed so you know what to look for. If you usually enjoy sitting in front of the TV then that’s where you should place the sofa. But perhaps you enjoy entertaining guests and chatting with them in which case you should create a cozy lounge area in front of the fireplace or facing the bar. Be careful however because placing a sofa parallel to the fireplace in a long and narrow room can make the room even narrower.
