Sofas and couches are the primary furniture seen in the living room. They are also a very significant investment of your money as well as style, so you need to think about the choices you have. Basically, there are two styles of sofas and couches – traditional and modern. However, there are more styles existing out there in the market. Of course, they also have different functions and comfort levels.
Lawson and Bridgewater. This style of sofa is a famous one with loose back cushions, high back, and low arms that are made for comfort. On the other hand, Bridgewater-style sofas are made with slightly angled through the back, low arms and loose cushions, and are typically skirted. Both styles are considered as casual sofas yet comfortable that is suitable for napping and relaxing.
Cabriole and Chesterfield. These two styles are considered as the elegant classic ones. Chesterfield-style sofa is a classic English style frequently upholstered in leather that comes with rolled arms and high tufted back. This sofa is often seen in the clubs of English gentlemen and Victorian drawing rooms. The seat is characterized as one long bench-style cushion and can be also tufted. On the other hand, Cabriole-style sofa has a back that curves into the arms of the sofa. Traditionally, its legs and trim are carved wooden with curvy arms.
Sectionals. This style of couch is most famous because of the flexibility it has. They also come in leather upholstery or cloth. A lot of sectional-style couches feature recliners. Since this kind of couch is flexible, it can be arranged in quite a lot of ways like dividing it into two or more sections.
Club and Camelback. These styles are considered as the traditional ones. Camelback is a more formal style compared to the club style. Camelback-style sofas are characterized with a curved upholstered back and tightly rolled arms. The sofa’s legs may be exposed or covered with a skirt. The club-style sofa, which is more famous as English, features slightly curved arms, short casters or legs, and attached back cushions.
