Take a seat

Curling up on the sofa is one of life’s little pleasures, especially when it’s wet and windy outside. That’s why it’s important to have a great sofa, couch, settee or whatever you prefer to call it.

Buying one is a significant investment so do some checking before you buy. Style preference is personal, but quality is essential regardless of style. Invest right and your sofa will last years.

Factors to take into account include usage, size and overall look of the room it will be in. Does it need to be family friendly, large enough for two to snuggle up on, double as a spare bed, or accommodate a fur baby?

Here are some suggestions from Metropol:

• Decide on the type, for instance sectional, modular, sleeper, reclining, or maybe a futon.
• Make sure the sofa doesn’t overpower the room or impede the flow of traffic, and that you can get it into the room. A couch should be about 2/3 the size of the wall it’s going to be against.
• Look for one or two that will suit the style of the room, such as contemporary, mid-century modern, Scandinavian, Victorian, art deco, industrial etc.
• Select the right fabric for its use. White doesn’t work well with children and pets. Leather is good for longevity.
• Check the materials it is made from, especially if family members have allergies.
• Look for a solid quality frame. Hardwood is good, pine tends to buckle after a few years.
