These ‘Leggy’ Sofas Are Perfect For Small Living Rooms

In a previous post, I talked about choosing the right furniture for a small bedroom and one of the major tips, ‘leggy’ furniture. Leggy, meaning furniture with slender, raised legs. The best sofas for small living rooms have these same features. These types of sofas not only bring a modern, mid-century vibe to the room but they’re perfect for maximizing space and reducing visual clutter. Sofas with raised legs elongate the eyes due to its ‘see-through’ base and this creates the illusion of more space.


If you’ve read some of my other posts or just browsed the images on this blog, you’d see that I’m obsessed with mid-century mod pieces. The straight, clean lines, spidery legs, the way that they’re designed to literally cradle the body is just beautiful to me.
