Something else I also gave up on is drooling over a Living Divani or Mario Bellini sofa, pictured below, I simply do not have that much money to spent on a sofa! I also stopped looking for curved sofa’s, really love them but seeing them everywhere now I think they became too trendy and almost mainstream in a bad way and will bore me really soon. When it comes to choosing the right sofa I wrote down five points I thought were important for me personally to remember when choosing a new sofa… scroll further!

5 important facts to remember when looking for the right sofa
– Lounging and the possibility to make different arrangements.
– Light in color, different whites and beige are favourite.
– A piece with an open end is a favourite.
– A separate square module to slide on could also form the open end.
– The possibility to form a corner sofa or two opposite each other.
Looking at my personal wishes, a modular system or sofa with additional items to enlarge or rearrange the setting, is what I should look for. Choices, choices, not my strongest quality! Nevertheless, I have found a number of sofas to choose from let me know on Instagram what you think. On Instagram I also had a questionary some time ago and you gave me lots of suggestions, thank you! You can find 3 stories with them in my latest ‘home highlight’ you might need to click through a bit.
I first saw the Pixel Sofa by Sergio Bicego for Saba during Milan Design week where I also made the first picture. Italian design featuring a series of elements that can be freely combined, thanks to an exclusive connector created by Saba Italia. In this way the arm- and backrests can be removed from the bases to form endless new arrangements. The feather-padded seat cushions feature special quilted covers which highlight the limitless possibilities for mixing the fabrics in the Saba collection to create a new and unique sofa every time. Thanks to the distinctive shape of the back- and arm-rests, the overall width and depth of the sofa are surprisingly small, without penalizing its handsome good looks.
A more loose fit with the Catena Sofa by Ferm Living, I remember testing it at imm Cologne last year year and how comfy it was, like most modular sofa’s lots of possibilities and different modules with or without armpits, I particularly love the open end of this model. Something I find difficult when looking up sofa’s is that often the back of a sofa is not shown in catalogues or on the website.
The sofa above and below is the Jax from HK Living I really like as well. It is a bit formal but the curves are beautiful and it looks like a comfortable couch.
