6 Things to keep in mind when choosing the perfect sofa

Like everything else in this era of endless choice, there seem to be infinite options when it comes to choosing among the many sofas in Malta, which is why our team at Carmelo Delia has compiled a few tips to keep in mind to ensure you find the right match. Please, take a seat!



Think of your personal style, the room’s overall design and how your sofa can reflect and fit into it. Carmelo Delia stocks a beautiful range of LOIUDICED sofas in Malta, ranging from classic to modern. For lovers of classic pieces, The Argento collection boasts an exclusive design and distinct personality, which can fit into various atmospheres. For a more contemporary look, LOIUDICED’s range of modern sofas comes with plenty of style, namely the stylish Décor-Elite collection with its seamlessly-integrated side tables.


What are your intentions for the space? If it’s more of a formal, stylish living room only used for occasional entertaining, you’re probably better off with a sleek, stand-alone sofa. If, however, the room is meant to be casual and lived in, there’s not much that’s more inviting than a sectional sofa. Apart from being perfect to lounge on, it also has a practical design that combines end units, ottomans, recliners and chaises. Sectional sofas are an especially great option for filling up large, contemporary spaces with a lot of windows. 


A Sofa should be comfortable - and if it reclines - it must be comfortable in all positions. The shallowness and depth should be chosen depending on your height; the taller the person, the deeper the seats should be. 


Choose a fabric that complements both the piece of furniture and the interior decor of your house; its texture should be harmonious with the mood of the room as well as one that echoes your own style. In terms of fabric durability, this depends on the occupants’ lifestyle and whether children and pets live in the house - which leads us to our next point...


As a pet owner, you might have had to deal with scratch marks, stains and pet hair clinging to your sofa’s upholstery. While you should definitely consider training your pet to behave and your cat not to use the sofa as a scratching post - why not make life easier by choosing a more pet-friendly upholstery?  It goes without saying that silk and other fine fabrics should be avoided; it is best to select a fabric with a tight weave and not much texture to avoid claws getting caught in it. Leather and microfibre are hands down the best-suited coverings pet owners can choose for their sofas as they are both easy to clean and maintain, and pet hair doesn’t cling to either of them. Choosing between the two all boils down to personal taste.


If you’re looking to add a pop of colour, bright-coloured sofas are the answer. But for those of you who would still like colour without commitment, choose a neutral-toned sofa and accessorise with coloured cushions.
