Traditional or Modern Leather Sofa Sets: How to Choose Living Room Furniture

The living room is one of the most important spaces of any home. It's where we spend a lot of time with our families and friends. You can see why it's paramount that this space is both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.

It goes without saying the furniture, and particularly the sofa, play an essential role.

Homeowners typically have to choose between traditional or modern leather sofa sets. That's not always an easy call to make.

Here are some pointers to help you decide what kind of style will work best in your home.

Traditional vs. Modern

With all the furniture styles we have today, it's easy to get confused when it comes to the characteristics of each one. So here's a quick reminder.

Traditional sofa sets typically have:

  • A look that resembles the styles of the 19th century or earlier
  • A luxurious, timeless and elegant design
  • Lots of embellishments and details

Modern sofa sets are easy to recognize by these features: 

  • Cleaner lines and bolder geometric shapes
  • Urban aesthetic
  • A model focusing on function over embellishments

Decide What You Want the Vibe of the Room to Be

All homeowners should consider this when choosing between traditional or modern leather sofa sets.

What are your plans for the living room? In other words, how do you intend to use it, generally speaking?

Are you going to spend most of the time with your family watching movies and doing other activities as a family? Then you'll want your living room to be cozy and intimate.

A modern sofa set with lots of pillows is ideal for cuddling with your loved ones after a long day at work.

However, if you plan to entertain and have people over all the time, you might want a more sophisticated look to impress guests. In this case, a traditional sofa set is your best bet.

Take the Size of Your Living Room into Account

Of course, the first criteria when picking out furniture is to make sure it fits in your room. The same principle applies when choosing between traditional or modern leather sofa sets.

However, you also have to consider the height of your room when picking out your couch to ensure it suits your space perfectly. 

Modern sofa sets typically have a short silhouette and clean lines. Therefore, they are the perfect option if the ceiling of your living room is low and you want the room to appear bigger.

Traditional sofa sets tend to look better in larger spaces. Still, that doesn't mean you can't choose a traditional sofa if your living room isn't huge.

The secret is to be selective about the piece you choose and make it the central focus of the room.
