CREATE YOUR DREAM CUSTOM SOFA!

While planning your home interiors, you may have thought about choosing between a ready-made suite and a custom sofa. Come to think of it, your sofa will be your daily source of comfort and the go-to rest area after a tiring day. If you are going to spend on one major furniture item, why not consider having a customised sofa.

No matter what the size or shape of your room is, you can always find a customised sofa to suit your lounging and aesthetic needs. When it comes to custom sofa configurations, we have endless possibilities to help you create your dream sofa.

ARM YOURSELF

Before you commit and choose your dream custom sofa that perfectly suits all of your needs, arm yourself. Remember, left-arm facing and right-arm facing configurations refer to the sofa when you're facing it, not sitting on it.

So, if you want a left-hand facing sofa, you need to ensure that when you are standing in-front of the sofa and looking at it, that the chaise is on your left-hand side. The same applies for a right-hand facing sofa. If you are standing in front of the sofa, the chaise should be on your right-hand side.

SIZE MATTERS

Before you buy your custom sofa suite, accurately take down the measurements of the space you have available to ensure that it will fit comfortably into the space.

An easy way to see if the custom sofa you love is going to comfortably fit into your space is to map it out on the floor. Take some old newspaper and measure out the length and depth of the sofa, then place the pages on the floor to show these measurements. This will give you a good perspective of how the sofa will occupy your space. In doing so it will help you to quickly map out your room configuration options and ensure that your custom sofa will fit perfectly into your interior space.

THE L-SHAPED SOFA

An L-shaped sectional with chaise allows for face to face conversation while leaving ample room for a coffee table in the center. This sectional fits well in a small area and can be used to divide a large open area. This cosy configuration creates a dedicated conversation area and sets a laid-back tone for any gathering.

THE MODULAR SOFA

Modular sectionals use multi-functional ottomans for seating that won't block anyone's view. Ottomans can be built into a sectional grouping for open seating, and can be used as a traditional footrest, coffee table or even a extra seat. Modular sectionals are an exceptionally good investment as they provide flexibility. Flexibility means more creative control, more open living space and more places to sit. More living space and more seating space sounds like a perfect pair!

THE U-SHAPED SOFA

The idea of the U-Shaped sofa can be traced back to the Romans who sat in this formation while eating, this was because they enjoyed talking while eating. Even today, sofas in U-shape are particularly well suited to sit together comfortably after work in a sociable round.

They take up less floor space than individual pieces of furniture and also allow for extended family to sit together in front of the TV. U-shaped sofas have the further advantage that allows conversation partners to look at each other without distorting their necks.

The decision to buy a custom sectional sofa is a matter of personal choice. However, the benefits that a sectional sofa offers, make it a must-have furniture item for every living room.
