Bench Seat Sofa Styles
So you decided you want to redo your living room and are starting with the sofa. Does that sound familiar?
Most designers (myself included) start with the look and feel of a space, not the sofa. That said, I’ve learned most homeowners start with individual pieces of the room.
Since the largest piece is the sofa it’s where most people like to start. If this is where you’re at AND you’re considering a bench seat sofa you’re in the right place.
I love everything about this style of sofa and there are so many to choose from. Check out my favorite resources in the roundup below.
This post is all about bench seat sofa styles.
