Posted on Jan 20 2014 - 10:06am by Roman Sahakov


The furniture market has been evolving quite fast in the last couple of years. A few years back, most furniture manufacturers would produce only a few types of furniture that would either be associated with the high or low end markets. Now, there is a wide span of furniture available, with a range of prices and styles to suit the needs of any customer. These days, someone looking for furniture is faced with nearly too many choices! As a homeowner planning to furnish your living room, or to give the room a completely new look, there are five types of furniture that you may consider buying. These include sleeper sofas, storage sofas beds, leather sofas, sectional sofas, and love seats.

Sectional sofas

These five categories of furniture are quickly becoming common to every household regardless of income. They introduce a communal feel in the living that is hard to ignore. Because sectional sofas are not divided like loveseats or traditional sofas, they promote intimate interactions.

Sectional sofas are designed to serve the needs of a wide array of consumers. They come in a wide range of materials, shapes, sizes, and designs. It’s up to you to choose the sectional sofa that is most suited to meet your needs.

Sleeper sofas

The ease with which sleeper sofas switch from beds to sofas makes them a perfect addition to your living room. Sleeper sofas also help create more space in the room because they compact two pieces of furniture into one. Two major factors to consider when buying this type of sofa are size and the type of mattress that comes with the sofa. Look for a sofa that is large enough to meet your needs but still saves you space in the end.

Secondly, consider the type of mattress you want for your sofa. Most sleeper sofas in the market today come with either inner spring or foam mattresses. There are a few models that come with air mattresses. Choosing a sofa with your preferred mattress will maximize your use of the sleeper sofa. 

Leather sofas

For a long time, leather sofas were associated with bachelors, but not anymore. At present, leather sofas are also available in family homes or homes of young unmarried women. The popularity of these sofas is rising quickly. One major reason for an increase in the popularity of leather sofas is the aesthetic appeal of the leather. Leather sofas are considered to add a touch of class to living rooms. They are also durable and long lasting.

There are many types of leather sofas to choose from. They come in a wide range of colours including walnut, onyx, and saddle. As a buyer, you will be able to find many designs that suit your budget, space, and decor needs.


Love seats are small sized sofas with two separate pillows. They are designed to give room for two people to sit or for one person to sit very comfortably. Loveseats, in some homes, provide room where two young lovers can sit in order to be cozy. They may also be used by one person to stretch out for a quick nap. Most important of all, loveseats are designed to fit small living room areas where big sofas may not fit. They also complement home decor.

Storage sofa bed

Storage sofa beds can be turned from sofas into beds but, unlike sleeper sofas, they have also have storage space. This space is largely determined by the size of the sofa. Storage sofa beds are the perfect accent to making your living room a cosy retreat. They come with more than one folding option, and make your living room not just comfortable but also stylish. These sofas have great designer appeal and are available in many designs, materials, shapes, and sizes.
