Share

Have you ever considered going for a high back sofa? There are plenty of reasons why you should! Whether you’d like the timeless elegance that a high back sofa offers, or the extra comfort it provides, it’s well worth taking a look at a few different models to see if you can find ‘the one’.

Here, we’ve rounded up a few reasons why high back sofas could work for you, and also listed a few of our favourite models that are available here at SofaSofa.

1. High back sofas offer support to the head and neck

If you have problems with your back, then a high back sofa could help enormously in enabling you to fully relax. The added support that the design offers to your head and neck could help to ease tension in that area, and make for a much more comfortable seat.

Even if you’re not suffering with back pain, many people find that sitting on a high back sofa is soothing and more comfortable than a low back sofa – it’s a matter of personal taste, but definitely worth trying so that you can choose the sofa that makes you feel as comfortable as possible. You deserve it, after all!

2. High back sofas add a touch of classic style

There’s something about high back sofas that reminds us of elegant days gone by – aristocratic houses where ladies would whisper secrets to one another in the secluded setting, or lovers would steal a kiss behind the tall back of a love seat.

There’s a definite air of romance surrounding high back sofas, and many of the styles available today are reminiscent of eras gone by; but there are also models on the market now which feature a modern element, too, so the style can work well in any space.

Those looking for a Pride and Prejudice-esque feel should go for a style with scrolled arms or a buttoned back; whereas squarer arms and clean lines will offer a more modern look.

3. High back sofas can balance out a high ceiling

If you’re blessed with high ceilings and airy spaces in your home, then a high back sofa can help to balance out the space. Sofas with shorter backs may look a little lost in a room with a high ceiling, but a high back sofa can make a real statement and earn its place.

If you’re lucky enough to have such a space in your home, take advantage of it and decorate it accordingly to maximise its full potential. With a high ceiling, you can afford to play with the height of your furnishings and accessories. Surrounding your sofa with tall floor lamps, and adorning the ceiling with large, statement light fittings will help to make the space look incredibly stylish.

 

Which high back sofa should you choose?

Now that we’ve run through some of the benefits that high back sofas offer, here’s a rundown of some of our favourite models that are available at SofaSofa.
