What Houzz contributors are saying:
Be savvy about shapePersonal preference comes into play a great deal with sofas and armchairs, as everyone tends to have their own views on what feels and looks best. A deep seat is great for curling your legs up on, but it can make normal, feet-on-the-floor sitting a bit uncomfortable. A low back is more aesthetically pleasing, particularly with contemporary designs, but high backs are arguably more comfortable. Arms are another point of debate – do you go for a chic armless look, an elbow-resting height or glamorous high arms? Fixed seats and sprung backs give a neat, smooth finish, but aren’t as comfortable as squishy loose cushions.Consider these points while bearing in mind the sofa or chair’s primary purpose. Comfort is going to prevail over perfection with a modular sofa in a family living room, for instance, but you can opt for a neat, elegant design for an occasional chair in the guest bedroom.
