Why A Good Sofa Is Crucial
For Ali, a sofa or lounge suit is not just somewhere you throw yourself on at the end of the day and binge on television. For him, a sofa also provides various other life moments with a point of relief and comfort. The couch can act and assist a family in many other ways; providing you with a place of refuge when you are ill and can't work, it is also a place for you to comfort and bond your partner, children and loved ones. It can also provide your house guests with a place of rest and storage if all other beds are occupied within the house. Ali insists that at Elegant Interiors they realise that these life moments happen all the time which is why, for them, it is essential to chose the right kind of sofa that is perfect for all these occasions and one that is made of supple quality leather and strong solid timbers.
"A beautiful leather couch will resist stains and are easier to clean which makes them perfect for clumsy house guests and playful children. It's important not to be hasty when choosing a sofa, a great quality sofa is something that should be an investment and last a lifetime," Ali explains.
"The Armando Sofa combines all of these elements, essentially it is a chaise lounge however it contains a unique concept design. It acts not just as a lounge suit but can also transform into a sofa bed with the added extra ottoman acting as a storage location." Ali tell us.
In Ali's mind it is the perfect solution for inner urban living, where space can sometimes be limited. You can now have your guest sleep comfortably and in style rather than on a regular sofa and the unique storage design allows you to store linen, blankets and extra pillows conveniently, and also acts as location for your guests to store their belongings out of foot traffic.
"We designed it first for the Italian market as city dwelling is often restrictive in space. It was so well received in Europe that we supply Armando to American and Australian markets. All of the sofas and lounge suits from Elegant Interiors are made with strong solid timbers or plywood, they guarantee longevity and comfort," Ali explains.
How A Rug Can Transform A Room
"A rug may look unassuming, however a room without a rug often looks unfinished and sometimes uninviting," Ali insist.
In today's world where you can find a rug for every style and colour palette it's foolish not to invest one.

Ali insists that arguably the most crucial piece of furniture a home needs is the dining table. He believes that the dining table is a piece of furniture that needs considerable attention before purchasing.
"The dining table is a informal and formal meeting place for you and your family as well as guests. A dining table plays an extensive role as a place for eating, gathering and conversation, it will also act as an impromptu desk for work or school, a craft table or even as extra bench space. Whether you live in an open plan apartment or a home with a formal dining room a dining table is an exceptional piece, one which must be strong, allow for multiple seating arrangements and suit the style of your home," Ali says.
