Regular Sofas

One of the most important things about outfitting your living room with furniture is the comfort level. In most homes, people spend a majority of their time in the living room. Whether you’re entertaining a few friends, watching a movie or playing with the kids, most of the relaxation happens here. When you’re shopping for modern and contemporary regular sofas, turn to west elm for a wide variety of choices. Because while comfort may be the most important attribute, style and aesthetics are important as well. From midcentury looks to sleek leather sofas, there is no shortage of viable choices to help make your living room extraordinary.


A “regular sofa” refers to the size of the sofa more than anything else. As you’re choosing a sofa for your space, it’s very important to measure the room and the size sofa you prefer in order to ensure that it fits comfortably in the space. Every house and apartment has different space needs, which is why we offer love seats, compact sofas, oversized sofas, regular-size sofas and sleeper sofas so that you can make the right choice. A regular sofa typically is 80 to 90 inches in length.


When it comes to style, there are many options to choose from. Midcentury sofas easily complement any contemporary or modern decor, especially when paired with midcentury furniture, such as media consoles and cabinets. Clearance height is also important as you make your choice. Many contemporary styles feature sofas on legs or raised, so that you sit higher in the sofa. For some, this is exactly what they like; others may prefer a sofa that rests closer to the ground, or one that rests entirely on the ground. The same elegant, decorative styles are available in raised and unraised sofas.


Color is also a choice to make when it comes to your sofa, and there are many different options. You can go subtle with the actual color of the sofa and choose a warm neutral or beige, or opt for a more eye-grabbing color, such as cayenne or sienna. Pair a splashy and bright throw with neutrally-colored sofas to create a focal point you can change on a whim, or delicately match brightly colored furniture with rugs, window treatments and wall art. There are also several different material choices when it comes to regular sofas. Opt for a flat weave you can see and feel, or consider microfiber. Sleek leather looks wonderful in your home office as well as your living room.
