Ultimately, Sofas with chaises are a timeless and versatile option that can work well in a variety of spaces and design schemes. So, if you’re in the market for a new sofa or sectional, don’t be afraid to consider one with a chaise – it just might be the perfect addition to your home. What’s most important is that you choose a piece of furniture that you love and that works well in your space. 

How long should a sofa last?

How long a sofa will last is based on multiple factors such as the manufacturer, the frame construction, the upholstery type and grade, and the cushion support and firmness. When you are in-store, ask your furniture salesperson how the frame is constructed, if the furniture is bench-made, what kind of spring support is used, and what type of foam and density the cushions have. This will give you a better understanding of your sofa or sectional and how long it will last.

Are curved sofas the next big living room trend?

Curved sofas and sectionals can be a contemporary statement piece in your living space. Curved sofas have become increasingly popular in recent years.  

The unique shape of a curved sofa creates a unique and cozy seating arrangement, making it perfect for conversation and relaxation. The curved shape of the sofa can help soften the sharp angles and lines of a room, creating a more welcoming and inviting space.  

Many designers are incorporating curved sofas into their projects. It’s safe to say that curved sofas are likely to become a major living room trend in the upcoming years.
