Things to Consider
When shopping for chairs, a sofa or even a chaise, there are a few things you need to consider, such as:

  • Practicality – Sure, you want your home stylish but you also want to choose pieces that are going to be easy to clean and durable.
  • Size Proportion – You should consider the size of the pieces in comparison to the space of your home. While a some furniture can look simple and elegant, an ensemble with overstuffed cushions could look quite cluttered in a small space. It is a good idea to have measurements of the area ready as you shop.
  • Theme – Is there an overall message that you are trying to display? Try to have some rough ideas of what theme you wish to achieve with your area. You could go for a bright colourful look or totally neutral feel. For more details on colour choice, please visit our ‘How to choose colour for your cushions’ page.
