Down filled sofas represent the ultimate expression of softnesscombined with aesthetic rigour. They are always made following precise dictates in relation to the quality and origin of the raw material: certified goose down. These sofas are ideal for those who want a basically  soft and fluffy seat that adapts to the posture of the body when lying or sitting.

Choosing down filled sofas means standing out 

Goose down has always been synonymous with exclusivity and the highest quality. This type of material is considered noble because of its intrinsic nature, which results in giving an extraordinary softness to sofas. Basically, goose down is an organic material and, like wool, is considered a natural flame-retardant , it requires no special treatment and is considered optimal for high-security furniture. Goose down is also antistatic, hypoallergenic, hygroscopic and insulating. In particular, the down cushion is presented as an envelope sectioned into several compartments: within each section, the ideal amount of down is inserted to create the cushion and make it the soft and cosy element that will be the star of the sofa.

Among the many models that stand out for originality of design and excellence of materials is the Bontempi  Dakota sofa collection. It is a true furniture system that combines the modularity of its elements with dedicated accessories to meet the needs of design, comfort and functionality. The generous use of goose down inside the cushions ensures a high level of comfort, as well as giving the whole room a lively and cosy feel.

Down filled sofas: how to find your way around 

Not all feathers are the same , and on the market it is easy to come across sofas that are generically named to as down filled. In these cases, the filling may differ in appearance and quality characteristics. The best fillings obviously remain those made of goose and duck down, whose special features are easily recognisable by their lower weight compared to other fillings. On the other hand, somebody thinks that goose down is far too soft. Thus, to avoid the classic and annoying sinking effect, many brands opt for a mixed solution: they only use natural down for part of the sofa’s internal volume, for example in the backrest. And they complement the rest of the structure with a polyurethane foam core. This special padding mix generates impeccable seating comfort and a tidier, less saggy upholstery appearance. But the percentage of polyurethane foam is also important in establishing whether a sofa is a quality one or not: there are low/medium densities of polyurethane foam (5-10-15-20-25) and there are high densities (30 and up). The density identifies how many kilograms per square metre it takes for the foam to yield. The higher the density, the better: the upholstery of a quality sofa has a density of 30/35 hp for backs and seats. The upholstery of a cheap sofa is made of polyurethane with a density of 15/20 hp for backs and seats.

Upholstered sofas: which to choose and where to place them

When deciding which is the most suitable model for your needs among different sofas, it is a priority to establish the type of use you intend to make of it. The offer is vast: classic or modern sofas, modular sofas, round or rectangular sofas, small sofas, modern leather or fabric sofas, sofas with pouf or armchair, extendable sofas or with peninsula. Those who opt for a classic upholstered sofa usually want it large and soft, suitable for relaxation, to be placed in the living room close to the television or in the centre of the room as the focus of the conversation area.

A long-lasting upholstered sofa must have a frame made of solid wood  and not chipboard, as is often the case with cheap sofas. The upholstery can be made of different materials: lately, polyurethane foam is favoured for its resistance to deformation, alternatively foam rubber or latex in silicone flakes are used. Colour is also of great importance: a dark upholstered sofa will appear larger and more imposing, while a light one will make spaces appear lighter and more airy. As far as upholstery fabricsare concerned, they range from leather to various fabrics to synthetic fibres. Natural fabrics such as cotton, silk, linen and wool, which are washable but tend to be very delicate, can also be used.

If there is one piece that is immediately synonymous with high-end Italian design in the collective imagination, it is certainly the sofa: one of the most important furnishing elements, both within a domestic context and in a professional environment. When choosing a sofa, there is always a discriminating starting point: is it better in leather or fabric? The answer is: better made.

Regardless of the material, a solid model that is aesthetically pleasing and durable should be chosen.

Better a leather or a fabric sofa: criteria for choosing

Robustness is certainly a starting point, but there are other aspects that come into play when choosing a leather or fabric sofa: the shape and style must fit the context. Colour is key: you can opt for colours in continuity with the rest of the room. Or break away: choose a colour with a strong impact, which becomes the absolute protagonist in the room. Then there is the matter of maintenance, in the sense of washability: fabric sofas, if they have removable covers, ensure easy washing, sometimes without even having to go to the laundry. Leather proposals are potentially more fragile, exposed to abrasions or cuts. Therefore, a purely rational choice between a leather or fabric sofa is not possible: the subjective aspect always prevails in the aesthetic and functional evaluation. The Antares collection, for example, has a strong personality in both leather and fabric: its compact design and stitching make it both modern and elegant. Its slim armrests and backrests enclose generous upholstered shapes. Its minimalist lines of the structure and the high seats are an ideal combination to ensure relaxation.

The irresistible charm of the leather sofa

Leather or fabric sofa? Those who choose a leather sofa usually tend to favour design: they want a pivotal element in terms of beauty, capable oflasting. Not surprisingly, a well-made leather sofa retains its charm, even when it is a little worn. It is essential that the leather is periodically treated with special products so that it remains soft to the touch.

On the other hand, a drawback of leather sofas is the fact that their covers are not  removable, so a proper washing is not possible: usually, one tends to clean them with a damp cloth. This is something to consider when choosing between leather and fabric sofa, especially if there are animals or very young children in direct contact with the sofa.

Why choose a fabric sofa

If the leather sofa is a great classic, the demand for fabric  sofas is increasing on the market. In recent years, there has been a hyper production in terms of creativity: the fabrics most commonly used to cover sofas are cotton and linen. But today designers indulge in creating increasingly distinctive designs in terms of shape, volume and colour.

Apart from the aesthetic aspect, it is essential to opt for a practical, durable and high-quality fabric. Poor fabrics, maybe mixed with synthetics, can quickly fray, form different coloured streaks, and give rise to small, unsightly lint pellets. The great plus of fabric sofas is that the covers of almost all of them are removable, and therefore washable. That said, it is also true that they are more susceptible to attack by mites and bacteria and tend to absorb household odours.

Choose between leather or fabric sofa depending on location

The doubt between leather or fabric can be resolved by considering where the sofa will be placed in the home. There are, for example, models intended for lesser-used spaces, such as entrances or corridors, or designed as supports for the living room or bedroom. They are often small in size, chosen more for beauty than for frequent use: in these cases, preference is given to leather, which is even capable of improving its appearance with the passage of time. The fabric versions, with removable covers, are more suitable for sofas that are used intensively and continuously.

Furnishing the living area always requires the utmost attention, even to the smallest detail. In addition to furnishing protagonists such as sofas, armchairs, tables and coffee tables, we must also pay attention to decorative elements that can give a decisive edge to our style of living: cushions, lamps, coffee tables and carpets.
Let us broaden our perspective and try to visualise the entirety of the living room, paying attention to all the furnishings, finishes and details that make it up. From this snapshot, we should perceive a space that is emotional, cosy and speaks of us: this is why it is not just a question of matching an armchair to a sofa, but goes far beyond that.
Let’s look at some useful tips to do our best.

Matching cushions to the sofa: the winning formulas

Cushions are a valuable accessory for all living areas because they can help brighten up any room and make it more dynamic. Combinations are endless, but let us start by choosing the direction:

  • Combine soft or pastel colours with brighter shades, as in the case of a Zenit Plus, a modular system in two versions, in grey with square and rectangular cushions tending towards orange or red

  • Tone on tone, but introducing the plots. This is the case with the Bonnie sofa, soft and sinuous, in the cream-coloured version and decorative cushions in geometric shapes and similar shades.
  • Choose the sharp contrast of shape, fabrics and colours, such as the two-seater sofa Antares  in green, combined with its own red ottoman, which echoes some square and rectangular cushions. Its compact design and stitching make it a modern yet undeniably elegant model: perfect for providing the broadest moments of relaxation.

Matching sofas and ottomans: how to choose the right one

If your intention is to create a sequence of references, every single element must be studied to perfection. An elegant and effective example may include the choice of a linear, neutral-coloured sofa such as the Dakota in grey,  tone-on-tone rectangular cushions and blue squares, which recall the colour of the Uchi ottomans and Badu placed around the sofa. Another idea that can add a special touch to any room is Pouffoso a simple and straightforward yet very elegant complement, perfect as a seat or simple decorative element in any room of the house.

Furnishing one’s home, besides being a dream come true, is also a very serious project that requires a lot of energy.
When starting from scratch, in fact, there are many spaces to be filled and imagination must be able to help us in creating a coherent, impactful style that reflects our needs. This is why it is often much more convenient to trust a single partner for the complete furnishing of one’s home, because they are able to offer different proposals from which to indulge in style choices, while remaining consistent with one’s design.

Complete furniture for the living are

If there is an area that can be defined as the centre of any home, it is certainly the living area, which, with furnishing complements such as the sofa is able to give a strong and clear personality to the entire environment.
For example, choosing an important sofa like Bonnie is an excellent starting point for furnishing the living area with elements that create harmony and style references. The corner model with chaise longue adds value by creating a perfect balance between form and structure: the addition of a small table with a crystal top and rose gold frame such as Loop, on the other hand, further embellishes the environment.
To complete the frame of this area, one can opt for a round table such as Fusion with the same rose gold structure and a super marble top.

Living area: choosing complete furnishings

In any living area, the pillar is the table: a symbol of conviviality and the meeting place of any family, it has a key importance in the personality of the entire space.
At first sight, the complete furniture of a living area must convey balance, be cosy and inviting. For example, the choice of combining Millennium, a fixed table with a rose gold frame and super marble top, to the Drop chairs that take up the structure and colour of the cladding, allows you to give personality to the room by creating very strong style references in which the thread is rose gold.
Of the same material are the Charlotte wall-mounted bookcases that establish a well-defined style in the complete furnishing of this room.

Fully furnishing the office

With smart working and remote working, study and work areas must also find their proper place in a home. This is why choosing complete furniture in these situations is not only a smart option, but also a guarantee of functionality and aesthetics.
Certainly activities of this kind require comfortable and spacious worktops, such as Mirage: the fixed or extendable table from the Bontempi Casa line with a modern design and extremely refined taste. Seating is another crucial point in the complete furnishing of a work area: it must be comfortable, in keeping with the overall style and very practical. The choice of models such as Chantal is definitely a guarantee of style and functionality.
In a space like this, it also goes without saying that lighting is one of the most important priorities, which is why floor lamps capable of diffusing the right light are a must. Circle is a perfect option for giving the room the right amount of elegance and properly illuminating the most important points.

The living area is one of the most important places of any house, because it means relax and sharing, a true peaceful corner to be furnished with care.

This is why choosing a sofa capable of enhancing your living room is an important step to which the utmost attention must be paid: if it is true, in fact, that this has become th undisputed main player of the living area, it is also true that choosing between different sofa models is not an easy task.

A model of sofa for each single requirement

Before making any choice, there are a few key factors to bear in mind that can guide us in our preferences, for example:

  •       The size of the living room
  •       The number of people living in the house
  •       The intended use of the sofa
  •       Comfort, practicality and durability
  •       the style of the entire living area

Personal tastes and needs must be matched by more practical characteristics related to the space in which the sofa will be placed: this is why customisation becomes a key element in making the right choice. And Bontempi Casa knows it: the new collection is based on five modular, highly customisable models to satisfy all the desires of modern living.

Modular models: sofas by Bontempi Casa

Today, ‘tailor made’ has almost completely lost its charm of exclusivity in the face of infinite modular and customisable solutions capable of combining comfort and elegance. This is because the ability to adapt a sofa to any type of living room is not only a huge advantage, but an increasingly frequent requirement. The new line of Bontempi Casa sofas focuses on modularity without sacrificing aesthetics, for a result capable of satisfying the most diverse projects.

Corner and peninsula sofas

When the living area is very large or an open space has to be furnished, the sofa becomes the core of relaxation and the centre of the home.

The Sunset sofa, for example, is a model with a peninsula, suitable for the most varied furnishing styles and with a dual position: it can be placed next to the longest wall of the living room, even better if below the windows to enjoy the natural light, or in the centre of the room as the real protagonist, if the dimensions of the open space allow it: a much appreciated and very stylish partition solution.

The Zenit Wall variants with one-piece seat and Zenit Plus, on the other hand, are part of a modular system which, thanks to the various types of backrest, enables a great variety of possible configurations.

Linear sofas

The choice of a linear sofa requires a large space to be furnished in which to make the most of this furnishing accessory. If placed in the centre of the room or along the widest wall of the living room, these types of sofa dominate the entire living area and must be in harmony with their surroundings. A perfect example is Dakota, a goose down sofa that combines the modularity of its elements with dedicated accessories to guarantee design, comfort and functionality.

Two-seater sofas

When you have little space available , you don’t necessarily have to give up the style and comfort of a sofa; on the contrary, you just have to make the right choice between the different types. A two-seater model, for example, is the most common option for optimising space and creating a comfortable atmosphere. In this case the Bonnie sofa, with the added value of 70s elegance, is perfect for harmonising the style of the living area with sinuous and elegant shapes, but also thanks to the modular options that include more seats and a peninsula.

Three-seater sofas

For those who want to keep it classic, three-seater models are a safe bet. In the case of Antares, the minimalist lines of the frame and the high seats are a perfect combination for your relax, but also a careful style choice to enhance the living room. A small sofa fits easily into any corner of the house and its layout is extremely simple.

Antares Sofa Bontempi Casa

The beating heart and absolute star of the living room, the sofa is a furnishing accessory that can completely change the perception of an environment, giving personality, character and uniqueness to the room. This is an important choice, therefore, that must necessarily meet and satisfy both practical requirements, such as the correct arrangement according to space, shapes and models, and purely aesthetic factors. While certain sofas are capable of capturing our attention at a glance, it is also true that love at first sight often hides pitfalls, such as the choice of colour and the features of the area we are furnishing.

Creating a perfectly balanced and colour-harmonious atmosphere is, after all, one of the priorities of interior design to which great attention must be paid.

You can choose, for example, to furnish a house from scratch and start a new home decoration project starting with the sofa, making it the centrepiece and starting point to inspire the entire living area, or you can insert a sofa into the existing furniture, thus moving towards a more effective choice from the point of view of chromatic and stylistic consistency.

In this sense, the new collection of Bontempi Casa sofas, consisting of five models with their accessories and an armchair, aims to meet even the most articulated needs, thanks to a wide variety of coverings, shades and colours that are perfect to inspire any kind of environment.

Secrets to choosing a sofa colour

The colour universe of the living room is a source of inspiration for the entire style of the house and has a particular impact on the entire indoor atmosphere. This is why the choice of colour, especially when it comes to key pieces of furniture in the living area such as the sofa, must be well thought out and studied to perfection. It may sound complicated, but there are determining factors that can surprisingly point us in the right direction.

Here are three crucial questions to ask yourself in order to get off to the best possible start in the world of colour.

How big is the living area?

The size of the living room tells us a lot about the features of our future furniture. A large living room can easily accommodate sofas in bright colours, giving a unique personality to the whole space; if the living room is small, on the other hand, it is preferable to choose light colours to give depth to the environment without running the risk of reducing the size further.

Has the room enough light?

One of the most important tips for choosing the perfect colour is to consider the amount of natural light in the room. For example, if the windows are very large and allow plenty of light, a darker shade can be daring; if the light source is limited , it is better to opt for a lighter colour to reflect the existing light and give depth to the environment.

What is the overall style of the house?

If the living room is to be completely furnished, you can consider some neutral colours and then build the furniture around them in complete freedom or, on the contrary, choose bright and lively shades to make the sofa the centrepiece of the living room.

When, on the other hand, the sofa is included in an already furnished context, the colour of the floor, of the walls and of the other complements can be taken into consideration, for example, a living room with parquet and wooden furniture is a perfect match for a classic sofa in beige, cream or white .

Light or dark sofas: an eternal challenge

The psychology of colour has a major impact on the overall atmosphere of the living room as well as the whole house. Having answered our three preparatory questions, the last thing left to ask is: “How do I want to feel in this space?”

Choosing a shade that reflects the right mood is a crucial step in living in the best possible environment and creating a balance where you can live in complete harmony.

Natural and neutral colours

Neutral colours such as white, grey, cream and the different shades of beige are always up-to-date and fit harmoniously into any household, identifying a precise style that gives a feeling of calm and relaxation.

For a large space, a good example is Dakota,  a sofa with a light and refined shape, perfect for spacious and harmonious living rooms, which represents a forward-looking and always fashionable choice. If, on the other hand, the ambience is more intimate and restrained, the Kodi armchair is a valid option to give personality to the room.

Warm and vibrant colours

To create a cosy atmosphere, the most suitable shades fall on the spectrum from red to ochre, not excluding sandy nuancesSunset for example, is ideal for creating large islands of relaxation with a strong personality, not forgetting the classy touch of colourful accessories. Antares ,on the other hand, lends itself more to intimate contexts that need dynamism.

The sofa gets a makeover. It broadens horizons, moves lines, adapts shapes, multiplies models and explores materials. It thus becomes the new and versatile key player of living and home decor. It is no longer just waiting for us at home in the evening to watch our favourite TV programme, but it goes together with and frames each single moment of our day. We sit on the sofa in looking for a bit of relax entertainment and conviviality. We chat as a couple, play our kids , welcome our guests all on our sofa and we send e-mails from our tablet, talk on the phone, follow chats and TV series, all while sitting on our sofa. And we’re on the sofa when we eat a meal on the fly or sip a glass of wine. The sofa is omnipresent and multi-tasking, it takes on a key role in the living room and in everyday life. It becomes the central and irreplaceable furnishing element of a successful living room, thanks to its ability to combine aesthetics and comfort and to offer an almost infinite range of inspirations, functions and solutions.

The new collection of made-in-Italy sofas by Bontempi Casa And it is always from this point of view that it becomes important in the design and enhancement of home furnishings to start from its protagonist: the sofa. Where and how to place the sofa is really the first question to ask. In the following paragraphs you will find the answer, together with tips and style trends for arranging the sofa in the best possible way and achieving a successful décor.

How to arrange the sofa: 5 interior design tips

Choosing the right sofa does not only mean finding the model, size and materials that match our tastes our living room at best. It also and above all means arranging the sofa in the most appropriate way. And this challenge is not easy. There are many factors that influence the proper placement of the sofa in the living room. Lights, walls, windows, not forgetting the size and structure of the living room, these are just some of the elements to take into account.

Here are five interior design tips on how best to arrange the sofa in its room.

How to arrange the sofa: against the wall or in the middle of the living room?

Placing the sofa along the ‘free’ wall, i.e., the wall without furniture and bookcases, is undoubtedly the winning solution. This is a natural and harmonious choice. It’s a no risks solution and matches every living room. Inserting the sofa in the centre of the room. is a braver and more personal alternative. However, it is only suitable for large spaces without critical features, such as load-bearing columns and irregular walls. In this case, the sofa will become the absolute star of the living room and, with an appealing design, it will enhance it. Do not place the sofa in the middle of a small and irregular living room: the final effect would be suffocating and the size would appear smaller than it actually is.

How to find the right distance between sofa and TV?

For the best viewing experience, the suggestion is to place the sofa in front of the TV. The optimal distance depends on the size of the TV set. The larger the TV set, the greater the distance. If it measures, for example, 32 inches, the distance to the sofa should be at least one metre. If it measures 50 inches, it will be close to two metres. Regardingtheideal height as for the ideal height at which to position the TV, you can find it by sitting on the sofa: the centre of the TV should be at the same level as your eyes.

How should the sofa be arranged in relation to the windows?

The suggestion is always to place the sofa next to the windows, never behind or in front of them, unless you really can’t do without it. The reason? The position of the sofa is directly related to the position of the TV set, which should not be in direct sunlight to avoid visual disturbances and reflections on the screen.

How to combine two sofas in a living room?

Spacious and airy halls, lounges and living rooms lend themselves to inserting two sofas. The double sofa creates a secluded living area where elegance meets intimacy. The best choice is to have the  two sofas facing each other, both perpendicular to the wall where the TV is located . Alternatively, you can create an L-shapedcorner with two sofas, possibly with storage space, coffee tables and side tables straddling the “L”. In any case, attention must be paid to the distances between the two pieces of furniture: they must always allow an easy passage.

How to combine a dining table and a sofa?

In open spaces and living rooms with kitchen islands or kitchenettes, it is advisable to place the dining table to the side or behind the sofa, preferably at a distance of at least one metre, and never between the sofa and the TV to avoid creating a visual obstacle, preventing those sitting on the sofa from fully enjoying the TV show.

Linear sofa VS corner sofa: how to arrange them

In the wide range of available sofas there are two trendy lines: linear sofas and corner sofas, which Bontempi Casa translates respectively into the Dakota and Bonnie.

Linear sofas, which are slimmer and slenderer, are usually placed along the free wall of the living room and are surrounded by matching or contrasting furniture to complement and enrich them. Corner sofas, more voluminous and furnishing, can be placed along the “free” wall in small rooms, in the centre of the room in large, soft or open spaces to create a convivial area or to separate the living room from the dining room, the living area from the sleeping area.

Dakota is a linear sofa with a light and sophisticated silhouette. It interprets a modular furnishing system, allowing the number of seats to be customised and combined with matching poufs and shelves.

A versatile and cosy model that, while inviting you to relax, gives a poetic allure to the atmosphere.

Bontempi Casa’s dream is to furnish your home making it a pleasant, warm and welcoming environment. Now also with the new collection of sofas, furnishing accessories designed to combine style and personality, comfort and elegance.

The sofa is not just a simple piece of furniture: it is one of the key elements of every home, a fundamental refuge for our well-being, and it also has several other functions in modern living. Conversation area and space dedicated to relaxation, it often becomes a “hybrid” place between smart working and free time. From a design point of view, then, in the furnishing of a living room it is the element that more than any other manages to give personality to the space. It is therefore understood that its choice cannot be casual or poorly reasoned, but must take into account various aspects, from aesthetics to functionality. To find the right model and decide which is the best fabric for sofas to buy, therefore, aspects such as the square footage of the house and the sofa measurements, the color palette of the living area and the style of furniture will have to be evaluated. The choice is really wide, and the brand new Bontempi Casa sofas will soon be available: refined sofas in premium leather and modern sofas in fabric.

How to orientate among all the proposals? First of all, it is good to consider the use that you will want to make of the sofa: it can be simply that of relaxing in front of the TV, or maybe living it in everyday life between snacks and games with the little ones and / or with pets, or you are looking for a sofa to furnish the study… The elegant fabric sofas lend themselves to various uses, being resistant and easy to clean, moreover they are generally completely removable to facilitate cleaning. Another precious coating is the leather, designed to last a long time, it is not afraid of stains but only scratches; it must be said that a slightly “lived-in” look can make the leather sofa even more fascinating.
