But the usefulness of a sofa and its function have been subject to several metamorphoses over the years, right? Some people have a childhood memory where they would rather sit on the floor than have to subject themselves to the lower back pain caused by an afternoon of television on a couch that was aesthetically beautiful but had little regard for comfort. Others grew up with a gorgeous, beautiful, ravishing, but completely untouchable sofa, solely reserved for guests. Then there are those who remember their sofas not being as beautiful, but incredibly comfortable for afternoons spent watching a movie or even taking a nap!
But these days, now, what do people look for when they are looking for a sofa?
Well, if you've been following us for a while, you certainly know that modular sofas are on the rise. This type of sofa is perfect for people who value adaptability, rearrangements, and different design options. Of course, being a centerpiece of any living room, the aesthetics of a sofa still carry a certain amount of importance, but nowadays, comfort takes precedence.
The pandemic has made us value our personal space and remote working has reached post-pandemic proportions. Therefore many people spend more time at home and thus demand more than just a beautiful sofa. Among the main features, people are looking for longer and deeper cushions so they can lie down, more modules to rearrange according to fit the layout of the room, top cushions that lie flat, and - most of all - high durability.
Colored sofas have seen a significant increase in demand, but for now, neutral tones reign supreme. Neutral tones are still preferred for sofas because of their versatility and adaptability to the other decorative elements. However, it's also important to remember that the color of the year for 2023 is Viva Magenta, a beautiful and vivid red, which can be applied into your next sofa, since Muranti customizes all the pieces to your liking!
