Sofa styles you should know before furniture shopping

Possibly the comfiest invention ever, the sofa is a must-have in every home. And, since we love entertaining guests and ensuring they feel welcome in our homes, we pay special attention to the kind of sofa we buy.

It must be large enough to seat a big family, it must have soft cushions, and it must go well with the home décor. But, did you know that there are several different types of sofa styles that you can choose? In this article, we shall cover the most popular sofa styles so that you know what to look for!

Modular sofa set style

Modular sofas are currently very fashionable because of their functionality. These sofas have movable parts, enabling you to arrange them however you wish to. You can create various configurations based on your comfort level.

Victorian sofa style

Add a touch of royalty to your living room with a large Victorian sofa. It is available in big sets and individual units, allowing you to choose a combination that fits well. We recommend these sofas if you have vintage or vibrant home décor with some antique pieces.

Diwan style sofa

Also popular as Indian sofas, Diwans have become mandatory in all homes. Along with being super spacious, they double as beds for single guests. Also, who wouldn’t want to rest on a comfortable diwan and watch TV after a stressful day? No one!

Buy 2 bolster pillows and 2-4 cushions to make it cozier!

Wooden sofa style

We think wooden sofas are quite underrated. Solid wood is a very classy and elegant material that can uplift the entire mood of the living room. So, don’t shy away from wooden sofas just because they are common. Many modern designs are unique and aesthetic.

Sectional sofa styles

These sofas are also elegant and use up space very well. If you have a large family and/or love entertaining guests regularly, you should definitely choose a sectional sofa. L-shape sofas are quite common but there are U-shape sofas as well. Make sure you compare them both before choosing one.


Recliners top the charts as the snuggest pieces of furniture! They provide the ultimate TV viewing and entertaining experience, which is why they are quite irresistible. You can either go for a 3-seater and 2-seater recliner set or just buy a single recliner to go with a regular large sofa. Either way, there’s no way you can ignore it!


The sofa world has so many styles that you will need an entire day (or more) to just look around! But if you don’t have that much time, we advise you to stick to the sofa styles mentioned here. We also invite you to take a gander at our website for more inspiration and quick shopping.
