The style of your sofa should complement the style of your house and your existing furniture. It should also function in a way that suits your lifestyle and functions for you. Buying a low-line, sleek sofa that looks great in the showroom amongst contemporary furniture is great if you have a modern home. But if you really prefer a comfy, cushioned seat that you can sink into, keep looking for the one that will suit you and your home.
The depth of the sofa plays a major role in the comfort of your couch and depending on your preference, lying or sitting on the sofa, you should take it into consideration as well. If you prefer cuddling and sleeping on you sofa, look for a deep sofa for extra comfort. Softer sofas are usually more comfortable for lying and snuggling while a stiffer cushion will be advised if you prefer sitting upright for reading or working on your laptop.
One main decision is whether you are going to go for a leather or a fabric sofa. A few questions to ask yourself are: how much use will this sofa get? What kind of area is it in and therefore what kind of spills is it going to be prone to? If it is a high-use area, leather is durable, easy to clean and non- absorbent for spills and smells. With professional help, minor tears or scratches can be repaired with great results. Fabric, on the other hand, takes a bit more maintenance.

The sectional sofas that do not comprise of segments are also known as a right-handed or left-handed sofa. The name will depend on the side of the sofa that tends to be longer.
Nylon: Best for the fabric sofa which is kept for the rough and tough use, because it can take all the pet claws of the sharp object scratches gloriously. The wear and tear caused because of the rigorous usage will not be noticeable. The nylon fabric upholstery might fail to impart an elegant look to your sofa, and it might also get faded when exposed to sunlight.
So, the lesson I got from that incidence is that when we buy a sofa for my brother`s new house, it is going to be a leather sofa because soon they will also have kids maybe in the next three to four years and replacing it again would have us incur a massive loss. But, every coin has two sides so we can`t just rely on one aspect and take the decision. The below guide will help you to know which sofa set would be better for you whether a fabric sofa or a leather sofa?
