A sofa can get a complete look with a set of pillows that blend in the background or a single pillow which brings out the simplicity and texture of the sofa. A single pillow is for those who prefer minimalist ways to design their place. It can either be a cushion or a long lumbar pillow. Patterned pillows are often used to complement the colour of the sofa. Usually, white sofas are combined with different patterns of pillow-like zebra, stripes, dotted, geometrical figures etc. The arrangement of pillows also matters to create a fulfilled look.
You also need to think about the function your sofa will be fulfilling. Is it just for guests to sit on when they visit or do you also want to be able to sleep on it if needed? Perhaps you also want the sofa to give some extra storage space in a small room. Take all these aspects into consideration before making a decision.
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.
If you have small children or pets, then you also need to consider how durable the sofa will be. Think whether or not you have to select a certain type of material or if the design has to be kid-friendly. Leather sofas are particularly resistant and easy to care for.
