There is no technical answer to this question, but it is all about how the sofa is going to fit in a specific domestic context. It happens quite often that people do not choose a sofa according to the available space in the room, but just considering their personal preferences. In other words, they are willing to slightly change the layout of their house to achieve their desired comfort experience.
Even though many sociologists consider it as a “selfish” choice, this “single seat sofa” deserves highest respect. Spot of relax and isolation, it represents a kind of throne as well as a shelter, a reading refuge or a music island.
Two seat sofas
Ideally perfect for those who want to avoid a “third wheel” situation, it is often chosen by those who just want extra space for themselves while watching their favourite TV series with a large popcorn bucket on their side. When the popcorns are over, the same space could be used for extended seating (Cleopatra style) or simply for putting away the laptop.
Three seat sofas
Sofas with more than two seats, normally bring to mind the idea of family. Sometimes it is a sort of obvious choice, especially when the first child arrives and the risk to be left aside while watching a movie is pretty high. Of course it’s not something only related to the family; the same thing happens when inviting some friends over.
One of the most iconic products of Calia Italia collection is Hip Hop, the modular sofa, that has been appreciated by solo-relax lovers, party people and families. This is the model that best represents the concept of “multi-seats” sofa, especially since it is possible to customize it with the favourite colours and fabrics choice.
The strange case of the chaise longue
The Chaise Longue, anciently called “Agrippina” or “cislonga”, is an extended chair with just a single headrest. Ancient Greek philosophers used it a lot during their lessons and it was also pretty popular among the Romans, where it changed its name in “cathedra supina”.
The Chaise Logue is a sign of supremacy: in its modern version, the daybed is combined to a proper sofa, so as to recreate the same comfort experience of the Greek thinkers. Moreover, by watching who is sitting over here, it is easy to understand who the ground master of the house is, who is the one who deserves to enjoy the comfort experience first.
All the above models can be found in Calia Italia collection in a variety of shapes, colours, coverings and stories. Discover all Calia Italia sofa collections.
