Shopping for a new sofa can be tricky. With sometimes hundreds of options to choose from, how do you know which one is the best fit for you? At Ivan Smith Furniture, we want to add ease to the furniture shopping process by helping you better understand the different types of sofas that we offer. Whether you are looking at a cozy loveseat or a spacious sectional sofa, we want to help you understand the benefits and characteristics of each sofa type. For your convenience, we have created this simple guide to help you determine which sofa is the right choice for your home.

Stationary Sofas

A stationary sofa is the most traditional type of sofa that we offer. Stationary sofas are generally made to seat three people and they come in a wide variety of colors and styles.

Reclining Sofas

Reclining sofas are adjustable, allowing you to alternate between upright and reclining positions. These sofas offer supreme comfort and luxury, making them perfect for afternoon naps and lounging with friends. Our home furniture store offers manual reclining sofas, as well as power reclining sofas that you can adjust with just the touch of a button.

Loveseat sofas can comfortably seat two, which makes them the perfect choice for small living rooms and apartments. These furniture pieces offer the same amount of style and comfort as our larger sofas, but in a more compact size.

Sectional Sofas
Sectional sofas offer ample seating space, and they are well-suited for large families or people who entertain often. These sofas are made of multiple independent pieces that can be removed or rearranged as needed, in order to meet your home furnishing needs.
