The first element to evaluate is represented by the design of the sofa, which can be of different types: angular, also in the corner variant with peninsula, linear or modular, chaise longue, but not only. The corner sofa is ideal for exploiting the living room spaces, especially if it is a luxury open space, the theme of a recent article.
