Skirted sofas

Are skirted sofas outdated?

Today's sofas have cleaner lines and design, so skirted sofas are outdated.

I love a skirted sofa.. they are classic and never go out of style. I think the skirt "finishes" the sofa and usually covers ugly legs.

The only exception I would make to Dytecture's statement is that slipcovered sofas are often skirted, and there are some nice, simple slipcovered sofas (example below from Pottery Barn) that can fit a contemporary aesthetic. But the old fashioned upholstered sofa with a skirt looks, to my eyes, too formal and grandmotherly. But it really depends on the style of your room and furnishings as a whole.

I like the mix of both skirted and legged seating in a room. A skirted sofa does not have to look dated. It all depends on fabric, style and tailoring details.
