Certainly the largest piece of furniture in your home, and one that says the most about the overall design style of your home is your sofa. Some prefer the straight lines and minimal design of contemporary sofas. Others like sofas with lots of soft cushy pillows and floral patterns. Still others like sectional sofas. Today sofas come in literally hundreds of styles with endless choices of upholstery. You can order your sofa mail order through companies like Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel. Most people will tell you that after style the most important thing they look for in a sofa is comfort. Choosing the right style of sofa to enhance your home is key. There are many different styles of sofa to choose from, but most manufacturers break them down into two distinct styles, traditional and contemporary. For instance, more traditional styles of sofa would include barrel back, English arm, tufted back, tight back and tuxedo.
When you buy a sofa, you expect it to last a number of years. In order for this to happen, you must make sure you are purchasing a good quality product. This will also save you money in the long run as you won`t need to replace parts or the whole sofa. Don`t be afraid to ask questions about a sofa`s quality when shopping. Make sure every part of it (internal and external) has a warranty and that there are no shortcuts such as real leather on the seats but artificial leather on the back of the sofa. If they are taking shortcuts on the outside, you don`t know what shortcuts they`ve taken on the inside.
Before wrapping a sofabed ("hide-a-bed" couch) for moving, make sure that the sofa can fit through the doors and can be safely moved out and brought into your new home. Try to remember if the sofa bed was moved in as one piece or if it was assembled inside. Was there any remodeling done, that might have narrowed the hallway? If you think that the sofa would not fit through the door, call the original store or sofa-bed manufacturer and see if they can come and disassemble it for you and then reassemble in the new place. This service might cost around $175.00 and it is well worth it.
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?
A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room, whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage, look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa, and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa, in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings, making all sofas look smaller than they are.
Cotton-Polyester Mix The blend of all the good things make the best things, which is why the good qualities of the cotton fabric and the polyester fabric are hybridized to bring this amalgam into existence. The synthetic polyester strengthens the fabric so as to minimize the wrinkling in the fabric sofa after frequent usage, and the cotton adds surplus comfort and eye-pleasing appeal to the look of the sofa. This fabric can easily withstand the everyday wear and tear.
