Sofa Table - How To Select A Sofa To Go Along With It

Feb 1, 2008
So, you've fallen in love with a sofa table, but the problem is you don't have a sofa to go with it, yet. Sure, you have that old tired sofa that has been with you since your college days, but now you are trying to create a more grown up look to your home. Since you've found the perfect sofa table, you've already narrowed down a good portion of the process in finding the sofa that will fit best.

Take the length measurement of the sofa table. This is a good starting point for the length of your sofa. You don't want to have too much sofa table or too much sofa sticking out as the two are supposed to work together and form a symbiotic relationship.

Also, measure the height of the table. This height is important to keep with you when you go shopping for a sofa. Think about sitting back in to sofa and deciding to put things behind you on the table surface. If the table is too high, you're going to either smack your hand on the table, or regularly misjudge the placing of items. If the table is too low, you're going to overextend your arm trying to reach over to get things or put things down. You want to make sure the height is comfortable to use the sofa table when you need to.

Now you have to narrow down the type of sofa to buy.

A lot of this will have to do with persona and comfort preferences.

The most important part of the sofa is the sitting area. After all, this is what you will be using the sofa for, right? So let's look at the seats and backs you will have to choose from.

Attached Pillow - These sofas are solid, yet comfortable. Instead of having a bunch of pillows to move around, they have the pillows firmly attached to the sofa itself. While they can be very fluffy and padded, they don't have to constantly be fluffed to look nice.

Tight Back - A tight back sofa is a style that makes sure you have a solid backing when you take a seat. There is minimal padding on the seat back or the seat. These are easy maintenance sofas.

Loose Back - These are the kinds of sofas that can be the beginning of a pillow fight. The back and the seats of this sofa are all made out of removable cushions.

The purchase of a sofa is not something you should take on lightly. Take your time, choose wisely and carefully. After all, this will be a big purchase and likely an expensive one, so make sure you choose the right one for your living space. This will also be a piece of furniture you will look at day-in and day-out. It will be a setting the tone for a large part of your décor and depended on to support you comfortably through all the coming days and social events that you host in the living space.
