Modern fabric corner sofas are less susceptible to damage than earlier models. It is now possible to buy corner sofas in specially treated fabrics that are stain resistant and easy to keep clean. Italian designer fabric corner sofas are a new addition to the sofa market and can be ordered in a range of fabric styles and colours as well as sofa sizes. Some Italian designers provide a bespoke sofa service for those with a larger budget. If designer fabric corner sofas are a bit too expensive you should be able to find a good choice of styles and fabrics at your local furniture showroom.
Some manufacturers' fabric corner sofas are also available in leather at a slightly higher price, however, leather is not everyone's favourite sofa covering. Many people prefer the warm, softer feel of modern fabrics and find that leather can be cold and uninviting; it really is all a matter of personal choice. Contemporary fabric corner sofas can be bought as stand alone pieces or part of a modular set and you should be able to find something that is both smart and affordable.
If you have a young family then you would be wise to save the extra money and get your corner sofa in a durable and stain resistant fabric that won't be ruined by the first spill. Darker or patterned fabrics are a better choice for young families than something light and plain. If you buy a quality fabric corner sofa you can always have it recovered at a later date to better suit your taste. The pattern and colour of the fabric that you choose will depend very much on how the rest of your home is decorated, busy patterns are better with plain interiors and vice versa.
Look around and you will see that many manufacturers and retailers have a range of corner sofas and the different styles are often available in either fabric or leather. Whether you choose a stand alone fabric corner sofa or one that is modular and can be added to as and when the need arises, depends on how much space you have available. A U-shaped corner sofa would be an ideal choice for a room that is long and narrow, while chaise end and L shaped sofas require more space.
Chaise end fabric corner sofas are becoming increasingly popular if television advertisements are anything to go by. If you have sufficient room and you like to stretch out and relax in the evening then a chaise end sofa is an ideal choice. If you prefer a conventional seating arrangement you will find plenty of neat, boxy corner sofas in a range of different fabrics. Some people go for plain fabric corner sofas and then choose lots of patterned scatter cushions to ring the changes. Contemporary manufacturers recognise a growing trend and more of them now offer sofas together with contrasting or matching scatter cushions. A fabric corner sofa is quite a big expense for most people, so it pays to take the time to find one that you know you will be able to live with for some time to come.
