Classic - the progenitor of many modern areas of interior design - remains at the peak of popularity. Its success is determined by versatility, restraint and comfort. An example of this - the sofas in the classical style. Their exact proportions easily fit into Art Deco, Hi-Tech, Empire, Neoclassic and other styles, allowing luxury upholstered furniture to occupy a central place in the interior of your apartment, country house or office.
What is a sofa in a classic style? First of all, it is a volume. Air neo-gothic or fundamental baroque is not inferior to each other in the place that the sofa occupies in space. Therefore, designers recommend it for spacious rooms with high ceilings. But even in a small living room, it will look appropriate due to the soft lines.

Interior for a sofa
Often, it is the sofa that becomes the key figure in the room: family evenings with households, business conversations with business partners and fun friendly parties begin with him. What interior design options do designers offer? From democratic to luxurious, but they both have common features.
Democratic - natural materials and their good imitation. Floor covering: high-quality laminate or parquet. Walls: beautiful wallpaper with silkscreen and complex structures. Ceiling: plastic stucco, decorative stretch ceilings, classical chandelier with forging elements. Decor: reproductions of paintings, mirrored surfaces, fireplace.
Luxurious - no extra details, quiet restraint. Chic through the use of expensive natural materials. Walls: silk, textiles with an interesting texture. Floors: massive parquet boards of precious woods. Windows: portieres, velvet, draperies, massive curtains. A fashionable idea is to sew pillowcases on sofa cushions from the same fabric as the curtains, pick up contrasting laces, ribbons and brushes for decoration.
Complement the furniture idyll chair in the classic style or a couple of such comfortable chairs, depending on the number of square meters in the room and the need for recreation. A set of upholstered furniture is most often located:
- In the recreation area with coffee or tea table in front of the fireplace.

- In the bedroom, if the sofa replaces the bed. In this case, chairs can be put symmetrically and used as bedside tables.
Symmetry and pairing are generally characteristic of classic design.
