Sofas come in all shapes, sizes and styles, here’s how to find the right one.
Choosing a sofa is not a decision you should make on the fly – after all, not every sofa is designed to fit into your relaxed Scandinavian home or your cool contemporary one. How do you go about picking the right one then?
Well, if you love having variety when you shop, that’s where Castlery comes in. From modular sofas with sleek silhouettes to the more minimalist seats with touches of warm woodgrain, you’ll find something that works in your space. In fact, we put together a style-by-style guide to help you out!
The contemporary look is all about being sleek – think clean lines, subtle details, and just the right touch of sophistication. If you’re finding the right sofa that fits this look, keep an eye out for these features to give your living room the same classy vibe.
Due to its design, Castlery’s Adams sofa is a great option for contemporary living rooms; with round-edge cushions, a modular configuration and slim legs that are available in brass, silver or plain black, it’s not hard to picture it as either a cosy two-seater (perfect for quiet evening cuddles) or an elegant centrepiece to impress your guests with.
Or, if you’re the type that prefers movie nights with the family, the Alfie sofa is a great alternative. Aside from the deep seats plus padded backrests for comfort (and additional back support!), the modular sofa also comes with built-in alligator clips that make it easier to rearrange plus secure each section for easy space planning.
Loads of white, open spaces plus wood grains — your Scandinavian home is simple in design and minimalist in nature. When designing around such a style, it’s all about paring back your decor and furnishings as best as you can without having it come off as looking too “cold”.
Sofas that best match this aesthetic usually have tapered legs as well as a streamlined frame; the Henri sofa has both, and more. Its muted light brown upholstery perfectly suits the warm and clean-cut approach, while curvy low track arms keep the sofa looking stylish yet comfy, great for when you want to lounge about on a weekend in.
Contrary to popular belief, the modern style isn’t synonymous with contemporary design. Instead, this look was born in response to the ornate and opulent architecture of the late 1800s — think of it as a quieter, more subdued approach.
To get the look, two sofas that you can consider are the Pebble and the Noah. Aside from achieving a balance between form and functionality with their elegant plus efficient design, both options offer greater flexibility when it comes to your living room layout.
Want a cosy communal setting? Deck out your space with a Pebble two-seater plus an ottoman and you’re good to go. If you’d prefer to keep things intimate, but still stylishly modern, we recommend a Noah two-seater paired with a coffee table instead.
Mention luxe interiors and you’d probably think of showy furniture pieces with features like rolled arms, intricate carvings and tufted cushions. Needless to say, they have no business in a chic home that’s all about understated refinement.
The Gianni sofa ticks the right boxes as it has the sophistication of a traditional European seat minus the tacky, over-the-top bits – sleek, Italian-inspired design lines give it a polished appearance, whereas the choice of a vibrant Petrol-hued upholstery (or Pewter grey for a more subdued look) ensures the Gianni stands out in a good way.
