Re: "Social Sofa" in a Living Room

Not a fan of the sofa or even the room as a whole.  For whatever reason, I do like that striped little side table that sits behind the sofa though.

Re: "Social Sofa" in a Living Room

@lolakimono  It's a nice room. Sofa is different. I like the teal chairs and the pops of pink. Especially in the drapes.

Re: "Social Sofa" in a Living Room

Nothing in this room really appeals to me. I don't like the sofa design at all.

Yeah, sounds goofy, right? But of course, the concrete social sofas are outside, so I guess it makes sense. Like a really solid and theft proof version of a park bench. I do like the idea of making a place for my neighbors to sit!

Re: "Social Sofa" in a Living Room

That is a very interesting, creative and pretty room!

Very cool trashcan? and pillows, pictures, flowers,fan and curtains.Whoever did this really put their artistry into it.

It's also very uplifting!

Re: "Social Sofa" in a Living Room

I was taught by a wise decorator many decades ago.....always purchase a sofa with two cushions because three people never sit on a sofa. I suppose the exception would be the large sectional sofas that people have today. I have an older traditional home with a traditional 2-cushion sofa in my living room.  I think a sectional would be great in a large family room, which I no longer have.  The sofa in the photo does not appeal to me at all. Only thing I like in that room is the dark wood floor.

I like everything in the room except the sofa.

Re: "Social Sofa" in a Living Room

Oh I see! It's a table not a tradh can lol!

And I didn't realize the couch had no center backrest.

Yes I have a couch that sits 3-4 but I agree about not liking the middle because there is usually no side tables to put things so I still like this,

then someone would be less likely to get stuck in the middle.

Re: "Social Sofa" in a Living Room

I never heard of a social sofa. I LOVE a converstion sofa though. I'm pretty sure I'm choosing that for my next couch.
