What's the difference between a sofa and a couch?
While the terms are generally used interchangeably, there are specific aspects of construction, style and size that differentiate a sofa from a couch. Generally defined as an upholstered seat with a back, arms and cushions, sofas come in a variation of styles - including sectionals, loveseats and sleeper sofas. A couch, on the other hand, includes smaller sofa designs with one or no arms, like chaise lounges. Regardless of the design or size you choose for your own home, our wide selection of unique sofas and loveseats make a comfy centerpiece in any room.

How do I choose fabric for a sofa?
Since sofas tend to be the focal point of a living space, there are quite a few factors to consider when choosing the perfect fabric. Naturally, a big consideration is the existing decor and color scheme of a room. Do you already have an established style, or will all future design choices hinge on the new color, design or texture of the sofa? For an idea of how one design decision can dictate the look and future decor of a living space, read our post 1 Room, 3 Rug Styles. Another consideration is lifestyle - children, pets, living room eating habits and more aspects of daily life play into the durability and texture of the material that will work best for you. Whether its linen, cotton, leather or stain-resistant upholstery, World Market offers a wide selection of options. For a variety of design inspirations and complementary products to outfit every look - from southwestern and mid-century modern to boho and farmhouse - visit Shop by Room: Living.
What is the most popular sofa?
One of the most in-demand sofas on the market is the sectional. With so many configuration options, sectional sofas allow you to piece together the perfect seating arrangement to accommodate friends and family. With armless and corner seats that connect with compatible hardware and an ottoman to kick your feet up, our low-profile, deep-seated Emmett Modular Collection includes space-savvy choices to meet a variety of needs.
How do you match a sofa and loveseat?
There are several principles to consider when coordinating a sofa and a loveseat. Deciding on a specific style, size and construction is the first step in creating a seamless look to a space. Next, color, material, pattern and texture come into play. For instance, two different patterns can harmonize nicely when complementary colors and styles tie them together. Accessories like pillows, throw blankets, lampshades and accent chairs with coordinating textures are another easy and affordable way to complete a space.
