Sofa Shopping? Here’s How to Find Comfort Without Sacrificing Style
A sofa has a purpose – it should be a comfortable place to recline, and it should look great at the same time. That’s why it’s often a surprising truth that many sofas on the market today are one or the either, but not both. If you’re looking for a sofa that will serve as a place for movie nights and book club get-togethers and long, lazy naps, you need one that’s as comfortable as it is stylish. Here’s how to find comfort without sacrificing style.
A comfortable sofa is achieved primarily with three characteristics – interior depth, pitch of the back, and cushion fill. Style, of course, is intrinsically personal. But if you’re looking for something that’s a little more tasteful than the stadium-style, polyurethaned monstrosity with its own cup holders, you’re in luck. Here at The Find in Reno, we have stunningly beautiful sectionals and sofas that can be customized in configuration and fabric. Not only are they beautiful, but they tick all three boxes for maximum comfort.
Internal depth – The average depth of a sofa ranges between 21 and 24 inches, but there are lots of options outside of those measurements. If you’re looking for a sofa you can really lounge on, a deeper seat depth is the answer. Look for something at least 23 inches or deeper.
Pitch of the sofa back – The height of a sofa’s back is an important consideration, but the angle of the pitch is just as important. The greater the degree of incline in the back of a sofa, the more casual and comfortable it will be. The workaround here? Lots of pillows can be the key with a back that’s more upright, especially if it’s low profile.
Cushion fill – A sofa is usually filled with polyester, foam, down, or some combination of all three. Here at The Find, we have a wonderful alternative to these options with our gel fiber fill. It’s ideal for those who love the softness of down, but struggle with allergies. Different fillings will offer different levels of comfort and firmness, so don’t skip the sit test!
