One sofa or two chairs?
You don’t have to choose. With two one-seat sofa units, it’s easy to make a cozy living room area that’s ideal for socializing. Or push them together and you’ll have a sofa fit for snuggling or watching TV. If you want even more possibilities, add a footstool for extra comfort – and extra seating.
