The main function of a sofa of course is for sitting and relaxing on. But there is a bit more to it than that. People like to socialize and have friends and family and guests over to stay. If you don’t have a spare room, or you have many people staying, your sofa may also serve as a bed. In which case you’ll want a purpose made sofa bed. Location-wise most people spend their time in the living room but sofas can also be for a hallway or study. Size matters as they say, and a large sofa, say a 4 or 5 seater is usually best for the living room (plus a couple of chairs to make a 3 piece suite) whilst a smaller 2 seater is usually better placed in the hallway.
On the other hand the fabric sofa could be destined for your business premises or work place. The reception area, is the most common spot for a sofa for obvious reasons. But also what about if you own a nightclub or bar? You would want your clientele to feel relaxed with their cocktails. When you think about it, wherever human beings go they invariably want somewhere to sit down. Spend a little effort to consider what the sofa is for, how often it will get used and so on. The time spent will ensure you make the right decision later on.
