One of the first items of furniture most people buy when moving to Singapore is a sofa. The choice depends so much on the shape and size of your current living room, but you also have to think about how versatile it will be in your next home. The type of fabric and colour can relate to the age of your children or if you have pets. Leather is great for kids – easy to clean and it lasts forever – but it can get hot if you don’t have air-con. Are the covers removable? Colour-wise, you might want to buy the rug for your living room first and then choose the sofa. Floor-wise, most places here are tiles, so you do need something on the ground. Next comes an armchair or two and a side table or coffee table that’s the right height and shape for your layout. Then you just need to soften and personalise with soft furnishings and accessories. Big or small, or whether you use it for entertaining or chilling in, you need to love your living room. Here are some ideas to get you started.
