It’s All About the Sofa

Deciding on a sofa for your home is a big design decision and a big design budget item. House Beautiful Magazine April issue did an article about sofa tips and secrets that was very informative and I wanted to pass on some of the highlights of their piece and add a few of my own tips.
Choose a solid fabric. Neutrals and colors that coordinate well with other colors in the room are the best. It will mix well with your other furnishings and accessories. Select a size that is long enough for you to stretch out and take a nap. Ginger Barber recommends a 90″ length. There are different densities and softness levels for sofa cushions. Try different types to see which is best for you. Suzanne Rheinstein likes an 80% down and 20% feather cushion. Framing is important, kiln-dried maple is the best. Seat heights and depths vary so make sure to find the one that is right for you.
