Ever since mankind was born on Earth, the motivation to avoid external conditions such as weather, sun, water, and wild animals has driven them to create a safe living space. Furniture is one such thing which has made life simpler and comfortable from the pre-historic era to the modern-day. Back then, it was made from stone, wood, and metals to meet the basic needs which included sitting, sleeping, and dining.

Though furniture has a very long history which dates back to 3000BC giving its first traces in Egypt, it has seen little modifications throughout its course of time. This blog is dedicated particularly to the most loved furniture – Sofa sets. Mankind’s love for chairs, sofa sets, or thrones has been sighted in history over the times. We have a lot of exemplary epics where things got a little rough just for a piece of furniture [(throne) figuratively of course]. Since antiquity, they are always associated with power and authority which is relevant even today.

The word sofa is derived from the Arabic word “suffah” which roughly translates to “bench”. The sofa as known today has been given many titles like settees, couches, loungers, davenports, chesterfields to name a few. The basic architecture of a sofa set consists of a frame, padding, and covering. The frame is usually made of wood, steel, plastic, or laminated boards. Sofa padding is made from foam, feathers, fabric, or a combination of all of them. The upholstery is usually made out of soft leather, corduroy, or linen.

A sofa is designed to be the center of attention in any living space. But a lot many factors go into its making; a lot many factors influence the way a sofa can affect the dynamics of any interior space. The size of your living space and family are factors that must be considered while choosing a sofa. The upholstery fabric of a sofa plays an important role in its making. Different upholstery fabric includes; natural fabrics like cotton, wool, linen, leather, and synthetic fabrics like polyester, nylon, acrylic, olefin, and leatherette. The color of the sofa is also a complementary aspect to your interior space. Even the slightest hue can change the dynamics of the living room. The detailing on the sofa can catch one’s attention and thereby the interior space looks a lot more alluring.

The basic design of most furniture has remained the same for the most part though material and stability have become stronger and longer-lasting with more of a focus on comfort and luxury in our modern lives. Choosing a sofa does not only limit to size, color, and material, the form and function of the sofa are equally important. On broad classification, we have created a list of styles that can help you appreciate great design and brush up your furniture vocabulary at the same time.

  • Sectional sofa: It is a multi-piece sofa set, which can be arranged in a number of configurations depending on your preferences. The most common configuration would be L-shape and U-shape sofa sets. It is generally suggested for larger living rooms.

Designed for comfort, this style’s signature design element has a back that is not upright but pitched at a very restful angle. A popular sofa design today, the Lawson style sofa is available in many sizes, colors, and materials. It can suit both modern and traditional schemes.

Like sofas, loveseats come in many styles and designs such as camelback, cabriole, and the like.
