All of the sofas shown here represent excellent investments as they are not only exceptionally stylish, they could also be considered modern classics.  This means that you would not need to replace this type of sofa for many years to come.  The styles range from simple seating units based on soft rectilinear forms.  Some of these are wonderfully versatile with interchangeable modules that may be rearranged to suit different occasions.  This basic sofa shape has been around since the modernist movement first emerged. This minimalist and modern style will remain especially popular as it fits in with almost any period of room setting or style of decoration.

Another particular favorite is the contemporary sculptural sofa.  These gorgeous modern sofas are streamlined, with curved volumes and flowing lines.  Perhaps a little more flamboyant in terms of styling, these fabulous pieces will make a feature statement in any living room.

Sofas that are also daybeds have increased in vogue over recent years. These are perfect for allowing space for a siesta to break up a busy day.  These day bed sofas frequently have high sides that are designed to flap down providing extra room to stretch out on. Other gorgeous modern sofa designs have a definite retro appeal, particularly the ones mounted on slim metal legs or enhanced with wing backs.  These styles may be traced back to the 1950’s and 60’s, but have been subtly modified to suit 21st century tastes.

Do you want your sofa to stand out, or do you want it to blend in to your ‘roomscape’? If you want a gorgeous modern sofa to double as a focal point in your room, then you may choose something in a brilliant saturated color such as the vivid red examples displayed here.  These look perfect in a neutral or white interior design scheme.  As color trends for 2013 are also embracing darker moody tones, including black, a powerful color on your sofa will ensure that it ‘holds its own’ against any dark background.

Neutral colored sofas will always remain popular, probably as they will blend with anything but also because you can change the appearance of a neutral sofa by adding any number of different color combinations of cushions and throws.  Placed in an all white setting or a very dark color scheme, the unassuming neutral sofa will suddenly look outstanding.

All of these gorgeous modern sofas have been upholstered in plain fabrics.  This year the prediction is that bold patterns such as chevrons will be super popular.  So, if you buy a plain sofa you have the option of bringing it right up to date with dynamic patterned throws and pillows.
