Pick The Right Sofa For Your Interior

After a long day of work, the feeling of going home, putting your feet up on the couch and reclining on a soft, fluffy cushion is definitely heartwarming. Sofas, then, are definitely an important part of your furniture collection and it is essential to pick a sofa that complements the décor style of your home.

Here, we have picked out four of the popular home décor styles and show you how fabric and leather sofas can put the perfect finishing touch on the particular décor style of your home.

###1. Modern
Functionality and simplicity with a hint of character defines the modern décor style. It’s tough to choose between these two types of sofas. A plushy fabric sofa emits a more comfortable vibe, whereas a leather sofa puts a traditional twist to a classic home design.

###2. Scandinavian
The Scandinavian décor style is defined by clean, structured lines and neutral, earthy shades. Choosing a sofa in a neutral shade fits right in with this décor style. Go au naturel by selecting a sofa in a neutral colour that blends in with the furniture, or pick a sofa with a brighter colour to emphasise the bright airy look.

###3. Industrial
As fabric sofas tend to come in many shades and designs, they add warmth to the edgy, raw look of an industrial-styled home. For a more rich and luxurious look, opt for leather. Worn leather, in particular, adds a sophisticated touch to an old, unfinished industrial décor style. It lends a subtle flair of an old-world charm and goes well with materials commonly used for the industrial style, such as wood, cement and bricks.

###4. Vintage
It is common for cream colours and floral furnishings to dominate the interiors of vintage style homes. Channel the opulent Victorian style at home with leather sofas, or the cottage home of the old English era with a fabric piece. We’d say both will look good for this theme!
