Redoing my living room, and I've decided on the Fielding sofa by Mitchell Gold, with the lines of a Chesterfield but cleaner and less fussy. It will be covered in a mocha linen-type fabric.
But I am agonizing over which length, 94" versus 106." (Height and depth are the same, 30" and 46", respectively--yes, it's a deep sofa!) I'm leaning toward 106" length.
So the wall overall is 149". Current sofa is 89"w x 39"d x 39"h with seat dimensions of 69"w x 24".
In favor of the 106":
- 82" seating width (vs 70" on the 94-inch) means tall husband can lie down fully, maybe can seat 3 people more comfortably
- it has 3 seat cushions instead of 2, which for some reason appeals to me more visually
- the 106" length seems more proportionate to the super 46" depth and those fat rolled arms, i.e. overall a little longer and leaner
Against the 106", In favor of the 94"
- 106" only allows for 21.5" on either side if sofa is placed symmetrically on center of wall
I'm attaching the company photos of the sofa in question, and then my attempt to approximate the look of the 106" with cardboard boxes and painter's tape! Hope you have great imaginations.
