My 5 Favorite Sofas

My clients are busy people who hardly get a chance to sit still.  When they do get a chance to relax, we want them to be comfortable in style.

Kathy Corbet Interiors has a sofa for every design style.

The sofa is the centerpiece of any family room, den, or sitting room. Not only is it an anchor in terms of your room’s style, but it’s also a place where you and your family spend a ton of time. It needs to fit your style, but also be comfortable for every day.

Kathy Corbet tests so many sofas to find the perfect sit.

Here I am at High Point sit-testing a sofa.

When you’re thinking about comfort, there are 5 factors to consider: seat height, seat depth, cushion fill, back pitch, and back height. This article provides a great overview. Every time I go to market, I spend hours sitting in and testing out furniture (see my post about chair sit tests). After all of this research, I have 5 favorite sofas you should consider. See one you love? Contact me. I can order these sofas in various prints and fabrics.
