As much as we love a sofa that looks great, and takes center stage at our parties, we prefer the one that makes for a comfortable afternoon snooze. So whatever your reason is, we give you helpful hints to pick the right sofa via www.peppersq.com/categories/sofas-4-seater-or-more
Bones. No two ways about it
Choose one with a good base, which means check the frame, the springs, and the fillings. Make sure you have a strong wooden framework, which feels sturdy.
A sofa that feels wobbly at the joints means poor craftsmanship, and in all probabilities, you will be making a trip too many to the carpenter to mend the joinery. Another important thing to note is the type of wood used to make the frame. A hardwood frame made of the teakwood will last you much longer than a pinewood frame.
Let it sink in
Always sit on the sofa. No touchy-feely here please. Feeling the springiness of the cushions with the hand is not a good measure. Make sure you sit on the sofa across the length to understand it best. There’s no hard and fast rule here, it’s a matter of personal choice. If you like sofas where you sink in, then you need to opt for the cushions accordingly.
Don’t skimp on this one.
If you’re trying to save money on your decor, I’d recommend doing it on a different piece of furniture. The sofa is, in many ways, the anchor of a living room. It’s where people congregate most and it’s usually what you’ll see first when you enter the room. Think of your sofa as an investment – something that you’ll have for many years.
