Ethan Allen Design Tip: Choosing the Right Sofa Arm

DANBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — When selecting a sofa, there are a few important things to consider. Not only should you think about the size and color of the sofa, but you should also consider the arm style.

Ethan Allen Design Consultant Deena Doherty says the first type of sofa arm the track arm, which has a boxy look. This type of arm helps open up your living room space and gives a contemporary feel to the room.

Another option is an English Arm, which is an arm that turns out and features ruching. The English arm lends a romantic look to your living room.

A third option to consider is the curved arm, which Doherty says is both inviting and casual.
