    Choosing a couch is not an easy task. A lot of people just buy whatever they come across, but this isn't a good strategy, and you'll notice the difference after living with it for a while. For most homes these days, sofas are arranged around one or two large TVs. So maybe the first thing to think about is how many pillows can you comfortably squeeze onto your sofa? If there's not enough room for all the cushions and there are some in your armchair anyway, maybe that will be more comfortable than rearranging them every day to make room for everybody! This part might sound trivial, but it's important because picking the wrong sofa could put everything on top of each other.

    Here is a list of key things to think about when choosing a couch for the living room.
    1) Scale: Make sure the scale of the living room isn't too small or otherwise you might overwhelm the space with your furniture purchase. A good rule of thumb is to make sure that there are at least 6'8" inches from any wall to all four corners of your couch.
    2) Style and Decor: The style and decor in your living room often determines what type of couch will work best with it, so if you don't know where to start looking in terms of styles, try starting with this step!

    The space on each side of the couch (which determine where people will be sitting) is an important thing to decide. Often we recommend a coffee table instead of an end table because that way people in different positions can grasp for a surface from all angles. For durability, it's best to choose tufted upholstery--tufting holds up better over time. For cushions, try not to mix patterns; use 2 complimentary but different textures or materials for your entire sofa base and back pillows if possible; and mix two or three different patterns in one seating area so they don't compete with each other.

    It all depends on what size of couch you want to use. What feels better for your space? Some couches have a sofa depth of 80 inches whereas others are more narrow at 40 inches and so forth.
    Some close relatives to the couches that tend to be in high demand are the settee, loveseat, chaise lounge, recliner and sectional. We recommend knowing where you'll be putting your couch before purchasing it for your living room.
    Our selection is amazing this season considering we have wide variety of fabric textures ranging from velvet and down-filled pillows to leather upholstery seats imported from exotic regions around the world.

    You want to pick something that matches and reflects the style of your home.
    In any room, color is introduced with paint, wallpaper, clothing etc. So picking a couch color is no different than choosing paint or wallpaper for the walls of your living room. Your design choices should reflect what you're trying to create for yourself in this space – an inviting place to lounge and entertain guests perhaps?
    Get started by looking at what colors dominate in the space - are they sleek and modern or warm and rustic? What furniture items are currently in the old through judicious placement of new pieces.
