SIZE

FROM OUR EXPERT: "What kind of space are you living in, and how long will you be there? Long-term homeowners can be more specific in their choices. Apartment renters should choose functional pieces that can be reworked in different spaces."

LOVESEATS + SETTEES

Also known as 2-seaters, loveseats + settees offer comfort and style without overwhelming a room. They're often seen with two individual cushions or one long bench cushion. Pro tip: they can also be used at the foot of a bed.

SOFAS

Perfect for a more traditional living room arrangement, 140-165 cm sofas are still conducive for small spaces, while 165-190.5 cm — or wider — sofas can anchor a larger room.

SMALL SECTIONALS

Limited on space but want the benefits of a sectional? Go for a small sectional. Its chaise component provides plenty of comfy seating, ideal for entertaining + family lounging alike.

LARGE SECTIONALS

Best suited for open floor plans, a large sectional anchors a room and can function as a space divider, separating the living area from the dining or kitchen. Made of modular pieces, it configures into several shapes—we love how an ottoman can function as a chaise or coffee table.

FABRIC

FROM OUR EXPERT: "If you like to change things up, choosing a neutral sofa is the way to go. It will serve as a blank canvas, allowing you to add a pop of colour, indulge in a trend or even change your room's paint colour without having to re-upholster to accommodate the change."

Find Your Fabric

Functionality is key, and we have fabrics to suit every lifestyle—from durable tweeds and twills that hide spills to our easy-to-maintain performance velvet.

Find Your Colour

A poppy sofa can be the statement-making focal point of a neutral space or become the central theme of the overall room.

Consider Leather

Easy to clean, leather is always in style and wears well with age. Best known for its beautiful colours, our aniline leather develops a rich vintage patina over time.

DETAILS

FROM OUR EXPERT: "I love statement legs! They add so much personality to a sofa and airiness to small spaces. The Andes Sectional's cast-metal legs and Brooklyn Sofa's boomerang legs are my favourites."

Cushions

Family movie nights? Opt for a style with plush, sink-right-in cushions. Always entertaining? Tight cushions allow for more seating space with a cleaner silhouette. For a completed look, throw in a few plump cushions in complementary hues.

Arms

Curved arms complement traditional style, while straight arms give a clean-lined, modern feel. Armless silhouettes can be ideal for small spaces, providing a streamlined choice that doesn't skimp on style.

Legs

A sofa with legs can make your room feel lighter and more open. Tapered solid wood legs offer a retro look, borrowing from classic mid-century design. Straight metal legs complement a modern + sleek aesthetic. Low block legs lend a more traditional, comfortable silhouette.
