HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT SIZE FABRIC SOFA TO BUY?
At Habitat we have such a wide range of fabric sofas, you really will be spoilt for choice. So where to begin? Well, if your family tends to be on the big side, or you invite friends over a lot, then a large, 3 or 4 seater sofa is the only way to go. Alternatively, if your room is relatively small but you like to fit in as many people as possible in it at times, then a corner sofa will be right up your street. This style works to create more seating room, without compromising on the actual space you have available. In addition, a break away from the norm, corner sofas can add a touch of chic to any room in the house.
If your flat is somewhat bijoux, or the room has so much furniture in it already that you need to be clever with the space, then a small fabric sofa is the way to go. Chic and compact, it will still do the job very nicely. Remember though, no matter what size sofa you plump for, you always have to consider how it will work within the rest of the room. Will it fit properly? Will it be swamped by your sideboard? Stand too tall over the TV?
Not too sure of the answers to these questions? Take a quick look at our sofa measuring guide for a few tips on how to manipulate your room. Take your time - It’s a big piece of furniture, and an equally big decision.
