Many of today‘s most popular sectionals are covered with fabric in a solid tone. Pattern can then be added with artwork, pillows and other decorative details. Below we see the Cielo II 2-Piece Sectional Sofa from CB2, consisting of an armless loveseat and a chaise. A gallery wall is the backdrop for this next modern living room featuring a sectional sofa. The Walton 3-Piece L-Shaped Sectional from West Elm is an inviting addition, thanks to its numerous pillows. Drape a throw over the arm for a cozy touch.
First and foremost, any sofa must be comfortable and cosy. The idea of sitting up straight, in a prim and proper fashion, has long been forgotten. Those hard-cornered, linear sofas are best left in waiting rooms and receptions. At home, make that sofa plump and plush, with a nod to good taste of course. Secondly, any sofa is likely to be a mainstay, something you will live with for many years. As such, it must be aesthetic, long-lasting and functional. Choose wisely, thinking about your space and your needs. Thirdly, treat your sofa as an investment and not as a fashion item. Yes, good design will cost more, but it will not become obsolete after several years and will wear well. Finally, remember that a new sofa will quickly become a familiar piece of furniture. It will be there through the good times and the bad, just like a close and trusting confidant.
There are very few sofas around that combine opulence, a hint of playfulness and a sense of sophistication like the lovely Ploum Sofa designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Ligne Roset. The sofa looks ultra-comfortable, and its unique design moves away from the use of simple, straight lines, which have become all too common in contemporary design. Yet the overall appeal is still distinctly modern, and one almost can sense the subtle midcentury influence that shaped the overall design. Interestingly, the right-hand backrest of the sofa is a bit higher than the one on the left to give it a distinct, asymmetrical look.
Functional practicalities aside, a sofa is likely to be a mainstay, something you will live with for a number of years. As such, it should treated as an investment and not as a fashion item. Scrimping on a sofa is a false economy. A well-designed sofa will last much longer than those that are poorly designed and made with substandard materials. Good design may be more expensive, but it is invariably for the long haul.
