Your daily lifestyle and needs will define the height and shape of your sofa’s back. The inside distance between the top of your seat and the top of the back will be long if you love the formal look and traditional style or need to sit and rest your head while reading, browsing internet, or watching TV. The low sofa back will keep the comfortable, clean, and airy look of your living space, especially if you have floor-to-ceiling windows.
You can choose loose back cushions or tight back cushions according to the needed level of comfort and cleanness in addition to style. The tight back cushions will look neat all the time and support you because they are part of the sofa’s back. Such tight back can be ribbed or tufted to create a formal look in your modern or traditional living space.
The loose back cushions can have different colors and sizes to combine the elements of your living space and create a casual vibe in the place. You can easily remove such loose back cushions and clean them in addition to the sofa or adjust them as per the size of the sitting person.
The filling of your sofa’s seat and back cushions will help you define the style, budget, and comfort you need. The most comforting and fluffy sofa cushions are filled with fiber or down or one of such materials mixed with lower quality materials or innerspring core. Most of the modern and traditional sofa designs have three-seated cushions, but you can still choose a larger or smaller one according to the available space.
You will certainly define the inside seat depth- the distance from the lower point of the back cushion to the front of the seat- according to your lifestyle. For example, you will choose a wide seat if you love the day naps and a short seat depth if you like the upright sitting position. Just consider the size of the room and the existing furniture to create a sense of harmony in your living space.
