Finding it hard to choose? This guide will help you make the right choice

It is by far the biggest piece of furniture you will buy for your living room. And naturally, the look will decide and alter the feel of your space. It’s not as much about pairing the colours or styles as much as it is about getting the proportion and sizing right. But once you are past the size obstacle, it is important to zero in on the look you want to create. While you can modify it with slipcovers, throws, cushions and more, you will need to zero in on the basic style.

Here’s our list of type vs style.

1.    A classic tufted sofa gets a romantic upgrade in pastel blue and gilded legs.

2.    A sofa with good bones, clean lines, sturdy legs and that gorgeous leaf green colour has all the bearings of a chic, contemporary
      look.

3.    Opt for a sleek, modern two seater in a bright yellow to liven up any space. Put that in your kids’ rooms with a few fun printed
       cushions, and you are set.

4.    If you crave the minimalist touch then you can opt for a sofa made from wooden pallets. You can even add in drawers for extra
       storage.
