Furnishing small-sized living rooms with taste and style has never been easier.
Not all houses have large living rooms in which to place big sofas in the center of the room. In houses and apartments in the city center, very often the entrance and living room merge with the kitchen, in a single room. Sometimes the configuration of the apartment forces us to place the upholstered sofa in a precise position or to choose a two-seater sofa bed, for the guest or children.
So, centimeter by centimeter, we are measuring the surface available with the sole scope of enhancing the room with a solution that optimizes the space and at the same time satisfies our expectations.
Be careful when you take the measurements of the living area in which to insert the two-seater sofa, consider the arrangement of the furniture already present, or that you will buy later.
Focus some useful indications to ensure comfort, ergonomics to you and your guests, and the minimum distances to be kept between the seats, armrests and other furniture in the house.
There are guidelines to keep in mind to obtain the ideal stay and which consequently should help you live your home better.
The ideal depth of a space-saving sofa should be between 85 and 95 cm. A two-seater sofa is between 120 and 180 cm wide, while the three-seater linear sofa between 180 and 260 cm .
To move at your best, you need at least 60/70 cm of free space . If the sofa is close to the dining area, calculate at least 120 cm away from the dining table.
To insert a table in front of the sofa leave at least 50 cm of space to get up without touching the table, however, it is preferable to place a service table on the side of the sofa.
If you want to have two small sofas , facing each other, consider leaving at least 160 cm of space because people's legs, when sitting, must not be touched.
For the two-seater sofas with relax mechanisms , that is with the possibility of raising the footrest, the frontal dimensions are at least 120 cm (considering the opening of the mechanism and the passage of a person ).
Do you want a convertible sofa bed even if the space is tight? Remember that the size of the bed when you open it can reach 220 cm
Here is an example of the Marvin model that allows you to have a two-seater sofa in 166 cm space. In addition, the seat can also be customized with one or two relax mechanisms.
The versatility of comfort is also increased thanks to the adjustable backrest. The Marvin model is proposed in fabric and the covers are removable.

The fabric, microfibre or eco-leather upholstery is always completely removable, also available in the non-removable leather version.

Before buying a sofa of any size and value you should ask yourself "Who will use it?", But also, "What type of model should I prefer?", That is, it must be clear why you want to buy a lsofa: personal relax, sharing with the family. It is not as obvious as it may seems.
Do not fall into the trap according to which the leaher is more delicate than the fabric or on the contrary, that it is indestructible.
Both the leather and the fabric, over time, will tend to lose their original appearance ... but don't worry, they have only been "lived".
The covers "work" in different ways and therefore it is essential that the retailer or interior designer be aware of your habits and who will use the sofa. Perhaps, the alternative you had not considered is a stain and water repellent fabric.
Isn't space your ally? This doesn't mean that you will have to give up an ergonomic sofa with a unique style, chic and above all attentive to your needs.
