Sitting in the right spot

A couch is many things at one time: it is a place to relax, have a good conversation with friends, sit and engage in solitary soliloquies at times of alternating distresses and happy epiphanies, chilling with some food while streaming Netflix or even lying down with a good book or with coffee placed on the table nearby. 


One comfortable couch, preferably imbued with memories of family or friends, is possibly one’s best comfort zone. Don’t take my word. Television’s geekiest nerd, Sheldon Cooper, from Big Bang Theory, has reminded us more than once. There’s nothing better than to curl up and relax on a cosy sofa after an exhausting day.

In order to make oneself feel relaxed and slide down into ease without any effort whatsoever, one must choose the best couch. Afterall, comfort should not require too much effort, be definition. 

A couch has to be versatile, comfortable, and spacious to fit your body. Additionally, it should look great and fit the room’s décor so that the rest of your family likes it and feel comfortable sharing it with you.

Beanbags: Beanbags are the most portable couches available and can fit anywhere, be it in your office or own personal space. They come in various shapes and sizes.

They come in a myriad of enjoyable colours that can add a new layer to your space. Beanbag furniture is a bold and fun change from the traditional. You can sit and lie in a variety of positions and be comfortable. Beanbags are more customisable depending on the stuffing one puts inside.

The popularity of beanbags is demonstrated in the great number of shops selling it in markets like Gulshan-1 DCC Market or New Market.

One of best pages to buy beanbags and have them delivered to your doorstep amidst the menacing traffic of Dhaka is BeanBagBd, who uses imported leather like rexine and high quality bean bag fillers to make sure you have the comfiest seat.

Compass Rocking Chair: In contrast to traditional rocking chairs with hardened surfaces to lie both the head and back on, this rocking chair is comfier, with enough space for both. A couch on a chair, some might say.

This super ultra-cozy rocking chair is a fantastic addition to not only making ourselves comfortable but also our young visitors who visit once in a while. Maybe, adding a small plushy toy will further seal its appeal.

This appealing chair is found in all major furniture outlets like Regal Furniture and Navana Furniture.

Daybed:  This couch acts as an intriguing two in one offer for those who work on their couches late into the night, falling asleep eventually. Simply put, work in the day and sleep at night in the same spot.

In case of a restrained budget or in need of enough space to accommodate other belongings, this is a good and smart choice. A daybed, however, does not have a back and hence needs to be placed against the wall for back support and is available in many of the furniture stores like Regal Furniture.

Wingback Sofas : A fitting name for a couch when you come back home from a long and tiresome day of work, as well as enduring the horrible traffic, and just want to sit with your arms stretched far and wide with both the back and head sunk into the softness of the cushioned couch.

The top of the chair has cushioning that effortlessly supports and relaxes your neck, giving you maximum comfort and much needed welcome for the hectic day passed.

This relaxing chair is found in major furniture outlets like Otobi and a range of independent furniture makers engage in online wholesaling in websites like Daraz.

The Sectional/Modular Sofa: An all family affair sofa. A perfect setting for the entire family or friends sitting anxiously watching a nail biting cricket match or a beguiling TV show like Game of Thrones. Add to all this some good food and you have a party on the couch.

The ultimate living room seating arrangement provides ample space to relax the body, arms, head and legs with allowance of flexibility in expanding seating sizes or downsizing seats not needed.

Sectional sofas are available in all major furniture outlets in Dhaka.

Barrelback Sofas: A barrel-look alike sofa which not only is comfy but gives an overwhelming homely and cheerful feeling.

Given that the curvature of the back extends all the way to the arm, the couch does justice in relaxing and soothing the arms in the correct posture and is common in all major furniture stores throughout the country.

A couch is not simply a piece of furniture. It is a bearer of memories and witness to changes which take place in our lives in general. A couch is what makes the home homely in both texture and posture and we should all choose what gives us comfort in that sense.
