6 Things to Consider When Buying a Sofa

Selecting the right sofa for your home is a decision that shouldn't be taken lightly. After all, it is more than just a piece of furniture; it's where you relax, entertain guests, and create lasting memories. With countless styles, sizes, and materials to choose from, finding the perfect one may seem daunting. But fear not! This guide will help you navigate the world of sofas to find one that suits your lifestyle, space, and personal taste.

Determine Your Space

  1. Before you start browsing, it's essential to assess your living space. Measure the room's dimensions and take note of any architectural features, such as windows, doors, or radiators. This will help you determine the sofa's size and placement options. Alternatively, you can always consult us for suggestions, our team of furniture veterans are happy to help.

What’s Your Style?

  1. Consider your interior décor and personal style when choosing a sofa. Do you prefer a modern, minimalist look or a classic, timeless design? There's always a style to match. Explore options like sectional, L-shape, Chaise Longue or contemporary sofa to find the one that complements your own aesthetic and the style of your home.

Functionality and Comfort

  1. Think about how you'll use your sofa. Do you need a cozy spot for movie nights or a formal seating arrangement for guests? Consider features like cushion firmness, depth, and seat height to ensure optimal comfort. Most of our collections offer customization on cushion softness, try different down feather-to-high density sponge ratio to create the ideal softness level that is right for you and your family.

Upholstery and Material

  1. The choice of upholstery material is crucial for aesthetics, practicality and budget considerations. Premium leather offers durability and a sophisticated look, while fabric comes in various colors and patterns for versatility and is more budget-friendly. The majority of our sofas have customizable upholsteries to choose from: top grain Italian leather, synthetic leather, design fabric, or pet-grade fabric that is perfect for households with pets or children. With over 30 colours options for each upholstery, our team of helpful experts will assist you to find the right match in no time.

Customization Options

  1. Not all homes share the same features, and so neither do your sofa. Customization ensures whatever you chose is a unique reflection of your needs and taste. We at PENTA pride ourselves in offering high flexibility with top tier materials, allowing you to choose the fabric, colour, and even the configuration of your sofa, so you will always leave our shop happy and satisfied.

Sofa Maintenance and Care

  1. Consider the ease of maintenance and care for your chosen sofa. Some materials require more maintenance than others, so be sure to select one that aligns with your lifestyle. Some of our sofas are dismantlable into modules, so you can clean and even transport them with ease.



Choosing the right sofa is a significant decision, but with careful consideration of your space, style, comfort preferences, combined with our vast sofa collection, many customization options and personal service, you are sure to find the perfect one for your home.
