The idea of the perfect home varies from person to person. This is the space where you and your family return to after a long day at work to kick back, relax and get cosy. One of the significant parts of this relaxation is having a comfy sofa set, where you can relax and watch your favourite movie or web series, eat and chill, play with your kids or entertain guests when they come over. So, the sofa not only is a functional focal point, but it also works as a centrepiece that completes the living room. Therefore, sofa sets need to be aesthetically attractive yet functional.

However, while choosing a sofa set, there is a mind-boggling number of choices available in the market: L-shaped sofa, U-shaped sofa, minimalist sofa, over-the-top maximalist sofa, two-seater, three-seater, five-seater, loveseat or even sofa bed — the options are unlimited. Here are some trending modern sofa set designs you should consider for the comfort of your dreams.

Add Old-World Charm To Your Living Room With A Modern Wooden Sofa

A wooden sofa set doesn’t necessarily have to be flashy or over the top. Nowadays, wooden furniture is trending among homeowners and even renters. Like the wooden sofa set shown in the image below, which has a sleek structure. Its unique design makes the room look bigger and airier than it is. Wooden sofa sets come in various designs and wood types. However, this furniture needs proper maintenance, like polishing, if made of solid wood since they are more prone to attract termites. Therefore, if you consider a modern wooden sofa set, opt for engineered wood over solid wood.

Increase Seating Space With a Modern L-Shaped Sectional

If your living room has space to spare, then a modern L-shaped sofa or sectional is the perfect addition to your home. With one side open, these sofa sets can be rearranged and are versatile. Increase the seating when hosting a house party or arrange it as an extra bed when a guest sleeps.

The L-shaped sectional, shown in the first picture, is perfect for a bigger open space apartment or a villa. The grey fabric is soothing and can go with any colour scheme.

On the other hand, the beige couch’s simplicity perfectly complements the stylish charcoal gallery wall behind in the second picture. The elegant overhead chandelier completes the aesthetic of the living space, giving it an ultra-luxurious look.

Let The Conversations Flow With Modern U-Shaped Sofa Set

If you are a part of a large family, your home needs a large U-shaped sofa set since it offers a lot of seating. A central sofa connects two equal-sized side sofas in this type of set, giving it a U-shape. The picture below shows that the large creme colour U-shaped sectional is perfect for this family room. It is accentuated by two large French doors that let nature in. Additionally, the unique built-in TV unit and massive chandelier complete this warm and stylish family room.

Modern Three-Seater Sofa For Small Families

The modern three-seater sofa is commonly opted for by newly married couples or those who have small families. Nowadays, sofas are widely made as three-seaters. Get inspired by this simple living room design shown in the picture below. The mid-sized living room looks complete with this modern-looking rustic grey three-seater sofa with a one-seater couch and large pouffe. While the floor lamp and the tall indoor plant add height to the room, the dark area rug and three-part modern coffee table add dimension to the light colour scheme of the living room. This modern living room design can easily be DIY-ed.

Sofa Designs for Small Living Room

If your apartment has a space crunch, make most of the available space by bringing in an L-shaped sectional. Since they are versatile, you can remove the adjustable part, create extra separate seating, or use it as a table. Take inspiration from the picture below. Look how the teal sectional and baby blue lounge chair make the otherwise simple white room look vibrant. The picture gallery wall works as the perfect room decor, and the floor lamp adds height. In rooms painted in light colours, greenery is a must to sprinkle some life — therefore, the potted indoor plants are placed in the corner.

Five-Seater Sofas For Large Homes

The tufted blue five-seater sofa shown in the picture below is an excellent example of how vibrant colours can be incorporated in an apartment with an otherwise muted colour palette. The massive plush area rug, high back lounge chair and wooden coffee and side tables have given the living room a cosy, stylish vibe. This five-seater sofa can be a great addition to a large apartment or modern villa.

Compact And Versatile Sofa Beds

If you live in a studio or 1BHK apartment that doesn’t have much space for a separate living room, sofa beds are perfect for you. These are now popular among young professionals who wish to have a sofa and a comfy bed but have a limited budget. Sofa beds can easily hold two-three people in the sofa position. At night, flatten it out to make a comfortable bed. These can also be used as a guest bed if someone comes over.
