Nowadays, it seems as if furniture brands are prioritizing aesthetics and style over comfortable furniture, always making you choose between the two. With that in mind, you should know that choosing furniture based on how it looks over how it feels can be one of the most common furniture buying mistakes you can make.
Whereas some furniture retailers treat their pieces like museum displays (look but don’t touch), Living Designs Furniture designs upholstered furniture that is meant to be lived on. Here are a few reasons why you should prioritize purchasing comfortable furniture for your home.
1. Comfortable furniture is more likely to be used
Picture this scenario: you just bought a brand new shirt — you love the style, the silhouette, and the color. However, because the material is scratchy and feels unpleasant on your skin, you never choose to wear it for more than ten minutes. The odds are you’re not getting much use out of that clothing item, so it just gathers dust in the back of your closet. What’s the point of buying a cute shirt if you don’t enjoy wearing it? The same can be said for furniture.
Furniture is meant to be interacted with — its sole purpose is to provide a seating or lounging space for your home. At the end of the day, no one wants to lounge, sit, or spend time on uncomfortable furniture. Imagine spending a pretty penny on a beautiful sofa no one wants to use!
Think about it: you’re more likely to get your money’s worth out of a beautiful and comfortable couch that can be both admired from afar and enjoyed.
2. Comfortable furniture can improve your mood
How does furniture make our lives comfortable? There’s nothing better than coming home from a long day of work or school and plopping down on a comfy couch or chair while the rest of the world melts away.
The right furniture pieces, like sofas, chairs, sectionals, and more, can have positive psychological effects on your mind and body. Furniture that meets all of your needs — especially your preferred comfort level — can reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, leaving you feeling refreshed and energized. Seriously, who gets up from a cozy couch feeling worse than they did before? (Absolutely no one). Uncomfortable furniture, on the other hand, can give you unwanted aches and pains* and deprive your body of the zen moments you deserve.
So, what is the most comfortable couch cushion? How do you take inspiration from Goldilocks and create upholstered furniture that feels just right? With Living Designs Furniture’s custom capabilities, you can design a piece with our high-density foam cushions that are either soft, medium, or firm, depending on what you like!

3. Comfortable furniture will make guests feel more welcome
Nothing says “don’t make yourself at home” more than uncomfortable furniture. Furniture that is uncomfortable creates an environment that is unwelcoming and frigid, which will make guests feel unwanted in your space. If hosting is a passion of yours, then prioritizing comfort should be one of your main furniture goals.
We understand that some homeowners don’t feel the need to budget for quality seating pieces, especially in this economic climate. But here’s the truth: if it’s made cheap, it feels cheap, particularly pieces from fast furniture brands like Wayfair, IKEA or Amazon. Your guests and family members will be able to feel the difference between a well-made and comfortable couch with high-quality materials and a poor-quality piece that isn’t nice to sit on.
Pieces that are made with comfort in mind will create a warm and inviting atmosphere for you and your guests to enjoy.
