Know How: 4 Seater Sofa Ideas For A Living Room

There really is nothing better than bundling up together on a huge, comfortable, cloud-like sofa and snuggling down to watch a movie or to catch up with old friends. Our 4 seater sofas are our largest sofas in the family and are generally termed ‘grande’ in size. Four seater sofas are large; but remember, if you don’t have a long living room, there are plenty of corner and chaise style sofas that will take up less floor space but still provide you with all the comfort of a traditional four seater sofa. Here are some of our favourite four seater sofa ideas for a living room.

Classic Chesterfield Sofa

A classic chesterfield sofa is likely the most infamous sofa design. The button back and scroll arms are timeless and elegant, meaning this is a sofa that will really last you a lifetime. Our Chesterfield sofa is called Darcy, and it’s incredibly comfortable. It comes in a range of sizes but looks spectacular in our grande size which serves as a four seater sofa for a living room. At over two and a half metres wide, the Darcy grande is one of our largest four seater sofas, so it will provide your family with plenty of space to bundle up together and get cosy. A leather Chesterfield sofa is a classic piece of furniture, so why not invest in one that’s going to last you a lifetime?

Four Seater Sofas for Large Living Rooms

If you’re lucky enough to have a large living room, you will need furniture that is proportional to the space; small pieces will look minute and disproportionate to the room. A four seater sofa is ideal if you have a large living room as the large size will work proportionately well with the space. Don’t forget to consider the height of your ceilings. For living rooms with low ceilings, we would suggest a low-backed sofa to give the allusion of more height, whereas, in rooms with high ceilings, you can opt for a high-backed sofa to draw the eye upwards since the room can accommodate this style of sofa.

Pair your four seater sofa with a large storage footstool like our Rupert. Since a large sofa will probably require lots of blankets and throws, you can store them away and out of sight when they’re not in use.

If you’re investing in a large sofa, why not make the most of all that space with a four seater sofa bed; giving you two pieces of furniture for the price of one. Our Bertie is a fantastic, multifunctional design that comes in many sizes. The grande size is ideal as a four seater sofa and comes in a regular, corner and chaise design.

Corner & Chaise 4 Seater Sofas

If you’re looking for a large sofa like our 4 seaters, but you don’t have a long living room; why not consider a corner or chaise style? They provide just as much sitting room but make the most of awkward corners and L-shaped living rooms (taking up a perceivably smaller amount of space in the room). They are also handy for dividing or segmenting a space into zones for different purposes.
