Ahh the sofa (or is it couch?!). It's the place where you and your S.O. are most likely to spend the bulk of your time at home. That is of course, if it's super comfortable and cozy! It's also probably one of the bigger and bolder statement pieces in your home (by the nature of its size), so you'll want to make sure it's something you love. Seeing as it's essentially ground control for both chill time and entertaining friends, there are a lot of things to consider when shopping for the perfect couch.
As one of the bigger ticket items you're likely to buy or register for (hooray for group gifting!), make sure to carefully consider your space and lifestyle before diving in. Do you love opening up your home to out-of-town guests for the weekend? You might want to go with a sleeper style. Pressed for space in a tiny apartment? A smaller-scale love seat is going to be right up your alley. Cocktail parties and low-key dinners for a crowd more your thing? A modern-style sectional configuration is guaranteed to give you the seating and conversation space you need.
To make a sofa feel extra inviting (and worthy of evening-long Netflix binges), you'll want to add lots of cushy accessories like accent pillows and throws. Start with a great base for your sofa in a solid color fabric or leather, and then add it patterns and textures with all that extra gear. While it's fun to go with a color for your sofa, it's better to stick items with that can be easily swapped out if you get tired of them. It's a lot more pricey (not to mention annoying) to switch out the sofa itself!
