The sofa should math the living room in terms of style. So if your living room is minimalist, the sofa should also feature the same characteristics. Of course, you can also try to mix and match different styles and, for example, put a Victorian sofa in a modern setting.
When deciding on the size of the sofa, you need to take into consideration a variety of aspects. For example, look at the whole room and figure out how much space are you willing to let the sofa occupy and whether or not there are other pieces of furniture that you need to include there. Perhaps you’d also like to have a couch in the room or a coffee table.
Anytime you're arranging furniture you have to think about balance. When too many visually heavy things are on one side of the room the entire space looks unbalanced. Since sofas tend to be large in scale they take up quite a bit of visual space, and they require something of equal weight across from them to balance out the room. This is why you often see two chairs placed directly across from a sofa. Together the chairs balance out the weight of the sofa.
It’s important to determine your priorities when selecting the upholstery material for a sofa. For example, if you want the living room to look elegant and classy, you can get a leather sofa. Fabric is considered more casual. The most durable fabric options include cotton, linen and synthetic microfiber. If you have pets or small kids, stay away from materials that stain easily or are difficult to maintain.
