I don’t know about you, but anytime I go to a huge furniture store, I’m overwhelmed by the number of options. Have you ever seen how many sofas there are at a place like IKEA? They have dozens of sofas to choose from, and it’s hard to take them all in at once. Crazy. And the even crazier thing is that with all the options, I often still can’t find a sofa I like. It took Mr. Blogthings and I ages to find sofas we loved years ago, and I’m hoping they never wear out!
Sometimes when I see all the sofas that are available, I wonder who would ever buy some of them. Some really aren’t my style at all, and of course, it gets me thinking about the different type of sofa personalities. Big vs small, modern vs traditional, comfortable vs stylish… So many decisions wrapped up in one little furniture purchase. I tend to go for big and comfy, a little stylish if I can manage it. I really want to be one of those modern sofa buyers, but I can’t ever imagine sitting on one.
What about you? Do you agree that certain personalities may like certain types of sofas? Take The Sofa Test to learn what your ideal sofa says about you. I enjoyed writing this image quiz, dreaming up what each person who selected a particular was like. I hope you have as much fun taking it!
