Best Shopping Guide: How to find the right living room sofa for 2024

The sofa is the absolute centerpiece in the living room. No wonder! This is where you can relax after a stressful day at work, laze around on the weekend and chat with friends, feast and raise a glass or two. Yes, a sofa set like this in the living room is a nice spot in your own home. Often, starting with the sofa, the entire room is immersed in a harmonious style in which the sofa takes center stage.

So that you can find the right sofa for your living room, our interior experts will tell you what you should definitely pay attention to when buying. We will also give you tips for the correct placement and you can quickly find your new living room sofa using our checklist!

The current bestseller at TUKA is definitely the Sofa Posh. This modular sofa is available in different sizes and shapes, colors and materials, so there is guaranteed to be something to suit every taste. Posh is characterized by its modern shape and the comfort provided by the depth of the seat. But Sofa Cloud also has the same advantages to offer – just see which one fits better in your apartment!

On the one hand, sofas with organic shapes are modern – the kidney shape like our Funk model is also very popular. Otherwise, minimalist sofas are trendy. These have the advantage that you are guaranteed to like them for a long time.

The most striking difference: the sofa always has two armrests, while the couch has one or none at all. The sofa is also often slightly larger and suitable for more people and can also include a sleep function.

Not every sofa fits in every living room – unfortunately! If space is very limited, it is impractical if you want to accommodate a huge living area in a small living room. As an island for everyday life, you should choose the sofa not only based on its appearance and comfort, but also based on the space it offers. In order to choose the right seating set for the living room, you should inspect the room and your needs! Once you’ve done that, you can start looking for the right sunbathing lawn!

Tip: Do you want your sofa in the bay window? Then choose one that has the same shape as the bay window. If it is round, the sofa should also have a curved backrest.

Small living room equals small sofa? Not necessarily. A corner sofa also makes effective use of the space. Make sure the sofa has feet, this will make it appear lighter. In order not to block the path in the small living room through the corner sofa, you can invest in small side tables that can be pushed into each other. If you have enough space in a large living room and would like another seat in addition to the corner sofa, then a stool or armchair is a good idea.

But: Don’t choose the armchair that matches (from the same line) the sofa. This seems boring very quickly. It is better to buy an armchair that visually harmonizes with the corner sofa, but is also very effective on its own.

When a corner sofa, when a 3-seater? A corner sofa makes the best possible use of the space. If you have a free corner and not a lot of space, it is definitely recommended.

Are you one of the lucky ones who can look forward to a large living room? There’s a lot you can do when it comes to the sofa! Make the most of the space with a large couch. A modern sofa set or an entire living area is ideal here. If you like it a little more “mixed and matched”, choose a large ottoman or a three-four seater as a single sofa and combine it with armchairs and/or stools from another model series.

You can visually demarcate the corner with a carpet – this ensures coziness and gives the room a homely flair! If the sofa is placed in the middle, it can also serve as a room divider, for example to delimit the dining area.

When setting up a small living room, you should either integrate the sofa bed or a small sofa. Small but nice is the motto here! Because in terms of design it can stand out even more. Also suitable: A modular sofa that you can arrange and transform! This means you can set up your living space flexibly and even if you move to a larger apartment, you can easily adapt it. A small modular ottoman is also suitable here.

Do you often have guests or a 1-room apartment? Then you should think about a sofa bed. This option is ideal, especially if there is no extra guest room.

The best: Our new sofa bed model Amy proves that modern “icons” design is also compatible with functionality. On top of that, there is a matching armchair from the series that is also impressive for those with particularly little space.

A model made of fabric in gray, cream or beige is timeless and you can hardly go wrong with it. But you can then score points with an unusual form. These extraordinary options are available for anyone who wants to use the sofa material to create a highlight in the room. Velvet sets an elegant accent in the room and is particularly cuddly and soft. It looks more feminine and elegant. Corduroy, on the other hand, is a robust material and has a more masculine and cool effect. Check Sofa Oasis here.

The color of the sofa plays an important role in the living area. You can’t go wrong with a timeless, gray sofa – but you can achieve the bigger wow effect with a colored sofa as an eye-catcher. Do you have a dog or cat? A sofa made of leather or imitation leather is easier to care for than a fabric sofa, but is still popular for sharpening claws. More sensible: Alcantara.

  • Seating options: If you want your living room sofa to extend into the room, you should consider how you want to sit. Take a floor plan of the room and draw the different options.
