Hello AT,

What are the cons to choosing a sofa with a chaise end(s) versus a regular sofa? Has anyone ever gone home with a chaise sofa and realized after a week or a month that you would have been more comfortable on a regular sofa?

Thanks, Jj (pic is the Troy sofa from C&B)

Dear Jj,

To us BOTH are comfortable, but a chaise sofa offers more seating options and the ability to put your feet up easily. This is all very nice. However, a chaise sofa is usually quite a bit bigger and not easy to fit into every apartment. You need both more width and more depth for this kind of sofa.

While we don't know for sure, we suspect most people who go for a more modern style would prefer a chaise sofa, but not all have the room. Those that regret are those who try to fit one in when they don't have the room.

Measure carefully.
Both kinds of sofa can be luxurious and comfortable.

Anyone else??
