It appears that we will continue to enjoy the comfort and safety of our homes as the new year begins and as the temperatures drop, our couches will become the coziest place to escape the elements. Before choosing the perfect sofa, consider how it will be used. Will it be well-loved by kids and pets?  Do you like to lounge, or do you need more formal seating? Your couch needs to accommodate your lifestyle, budget, and space, so decide if you should opt for a sectional with enough room for the entire family to binge-watch your favorite shows or choose something more formal and classic. If you need living room design inspiration, scroll through the list of couches that Beth Haley Design selected for clients.
