Back to back sofas are appropriate in large spaces, because luxuriously spacious and open rooms need some definition. You see sofas placed back-to-back a lot in grander residences, large estates and homes where the living room has to be appropriately scaled to the rest of the house. It’s the type of room that needs to be broken up.Because sometimes we need to bring large spaces into a more intimate, inviting, and conversational place. So groups can gather comfortably, without it feeling like a hotel party room. These people do lots of entertaining. They’re throwing parties and social events to benefit charities, to honor artists and thought leaders, and to bring their large social networks together.So, if your room has the space for the back-to-back sofa arrangement, be inspired by what you see below.
