“I’m a big fan of a contemporary, minimalist aesthetic, I believe that a large furniture piece such as a sofa plays perhaps the leading role in any room. With that in mind, I recommend that customers envision their living space, its energy, and the story they want to showcase to their friends, family, and loved ones before choosing a sofa.”

“As a Product Designer, you may think that I would suggest a sofa’s aesthetic as being the most important feature in choosing the right sofa. However, I think an even more important factor to consider is what materials were used to craft the sofa. This can make the difference between your sofa lasting a handful of years or decades. So, be sure to check to see what type of wood, suspension, and cushioning were used.”

- Nicole Guo, Product Designer at Acanva

“My advice to anyone looking to buy their next sofa is simple: do your research! There are many brands out there that offer poor quality products that are enticing due to their low price point. Often, though, they are built with shoddy craftsmanship and materials or simply mass produced. I can assure that you’ll end up paying more in the long run.”

- Elyn-Aisin Lim, Brand & Marketing Manager at Acanva
