The highlight of modern furniture is functionality, and this means that many of today’s sofas are designed to include features that you probably didn’t even know you could have in a sofa. Here are five features that you might want to consider looking for in your next sofa.
Today’s reclining furniture is a far cry away from the poufy reclining chairs you grew up with. In addition to sleek, design-conscious reclining accent chairs, you can find sofas that feature individually reclining seats—and you wouldn’t even know it by looking at these sofas. Today’s reclining sofas and loveseats can be manual motion or motorized; with just the touch of a button, you can fully control your headrest, footrest, or both, for instant and optimum comfort. The Function motion group of sofas, loveseats, chairs, and sectionals is one prime example of a design-conscious, reclining sofa.
Mobile Headrests and Armrests
Your sofa doesn’t have to recline to offer customizable comfort. Today you’ll find innovatively designed sofas that feature mobile headrests and armrests. Our Nouveau Sectional sofa, for example, features ratchet headrests and armrests so that you can enjoy both maximum comfort and clean, sleek design.
That open seat at the end of your sectional? If it’s a sofa like the Nouveau Sectional, it also conveniently lifts up to give you valuable extra storage for your living room. If you’re lacking storage space in your home—or if you simply want to go for a more minimalist look—look for a sofa that gives you this valuable hidden storage.
Sofas are, foremost, designed to give you comfort in your living room space, especially as you relax and unwind after a long day. And since so many of us unwind by catching up on social media and current events on our smartphones and tablets, or by doing some online shopping, it only makes sense to build a means for charging your mobile device right into your sofa. That’s why sofas like the Function motion sofa include a built-in USB port.
No longer do you need to resort to having an uncomfortable futon or pull-out couch in order to add more sleeping room to your home. The most functional sofa beds of today are designed in such a way that no one will even suspect that they are completely convertible.
