Sofa Magic

Sofas with low arms are especially comfortable for resting arms or heads on (great if you like to lie on a sofa). And low arms often give the illusion of taking up less space. Sofas with high arms, where the arms are level with the back, are good to snuggle up in. And having the option of using the arm for back support means you can comfortably sit at an angle, rather than just face forward.

Sofas with high arms work particularly well in large rooms and rooms with high ceilings. Look in magazines for ideas about shapes and how they work with different styles of furnishings and decor.
