Corner sofas are a godsend when it comes to space-saving in the home. They're especially useful if your living room isn't the biggest in the world or if you have to make use of awkward alcoves and corners.
I believe corner sofas greatly complement the contemporary decor style. The clean-cut lines and minimalist look of a corner sofa tend to pair very well with laminate flooring and an open-plan living space. I've lived in houses where the living room, kitchen and dining room flow into one space. It feels bigger, sure, but you have to plan your furnishings to the letter. I found a corner sofa really made maximum use of an open-plan living space and added a sense of style - all in one.
In my opinion, the best way to invest a corner sofa is to choose a trusted bespoke retailer where you have the freedom to customise. If you have free reign to choose the size and style of your corner sofa then you can guarantee it will fit perfectly with your existing interior design theme.
Fabric is also essential with corner sofas. I prefer the snuggly chenille materials as it feels so cosy compared to, say, faux leather. A friend recently purchased her first corner sofa and she was amazed at the sheer choice of fabrics available when it comes to designing your own sofa. She opted for a blossom pattern corner sofa, which looks absolutely divine in her living room.
Speaking of friends, I discovered that, with a corner sofa, I was able to host a larger group of friends - thanks to the fantastic seating space a corner sofa offers. It was fantastic to see everyone make themselves comfy, giving me peace of mind that I had made a corner sofa investment to be proud of.
