According to top interior designers, for an ideal living room seating plan, first, you need to decide if you require a couch or a sofa set. We often use these terms interchangeably, but in reality, they differ in terms of their character. A couch, essentially, is a single armchair that is also used for napping. It is a piece of a personal-use furniture. A sofa set is a more elaborate and formal seating plan with two or more seating pieces arranged in L or U shape. Some of the most popular sofa set configurations are a combination of a sofa, loveseat, and armchair. 

Since the purchase of a sofa is a major long-term investment, it is advised to go through all available options and designs in various materials. To avoid any regrets, you need to be certain of the kind of material and style you want. This article will help you decide on the right sofa design for your living room. The following are the most functional and trendy sofa designs recommended by top interior stylists.

 

Sectional sofa

A sectional sofa set is the most space-efficient furniture piece. A multi-piece sectional sofa ranges from 2 to 5 sections that can be arranged in different configurations according to your requirements. Two of the most popular configurations: L shaped and U shaped sectional sofas make the best seating plan for a large living room. These are great for a big living room that requires larger seating plans. These sofas are very functional and practical as they are easy to move and can be arranged in different styles. The most popular style for living room these days are L shape sofas since they occupy room corners and provide a cool nook area for sitting. U shape sofas take up more space than L shape, thus suitable for bigger living rooms that require greater seating capacity.

Chaise lounge

A chaise lounge is a simple, elongated, cushioned seat with one arm, also commonly called “the long chair.” Interestingly, in 15th century France, the chaise lounge used to be a status symbol.

Often they are also used as a part of more elaborate sectional L shape sofas.
