Every home has its own lifestyle. When you cross the threshold, everything you see gives you the inside story on the people who live there: personality, lifestyle, personal tastes and preferences.

One of the rooms providing the most signs about the host is the living room, the hub for social life in the home and the prime example of tastes and preferences. So, the shape of the sofa, or the armchairs, the fabric they've chosen, the colour, the textures, the cushion fabric, the curtains, maybe even the pouffe, are no minor issues, since these elements perfectly define the space and surroundings the homeowner intended for this room.
That's why we'd like to offer you some clues about what kinds of sofas or armchairs are best for you, depending on the lifestyle you lead, your personal tastes and the overall decoration in your home. Read on, and don't miss out on anything...
If white, black and grey are the major colours in your winter wardrobe, or if you prefer a nice plain wall and you also think that less is more, your decorative style is probably minimalist.

If you happen to have space restrictions, and you want to maximise your surface area without overdoing it, your best bet is to find a two-seater sofa in a modern kind of style. Choose a neutral colour you won't easily get tired of within your overall colour palette, and just liven it up with a cushion that's a little more striking or daring, offering a touch of colour. That way, you'll get a comfortable, simple and practical space, just like you!
THE MORE, THE MERRIER
Dinner with friends, birthdays, family Christmas and party Saturdays. If you love acting as the perfect host for events like these, and getting your family and friends together at the slightest suggestion, the best sofa style for you is a chaise longue if you don't have too much space, or an L-shaped two or three seater sofa if you have a little more room.
In either case, you're sure to make things really comfy so that your guests will always remember how wonderfully you organised the evening.
A CORNER JUST FOR YOU
If you're one of those people who can't wait to get home alone and enjoy a good book, a movie or hang out on the Internet, you should try and get a one-seater throne of your own.
But watch out! Once you discover the pleasure of relaxing in a comfortable armchair or wing chair, it might be tough for you to share a sofa again.
