The frame and all the corners should be well padded. Run your hand over them firmly to see. A padded frame will not stick out through the upholstery, it also means less friction for the fabric that is covering the frame. Check the sofa from behind, and pat the center to make sure it isn't hollow.
Knowing how to identify each main part and its variations can help you describe the sofa you want to a salesperson or designer. Understanding the basics of sofa construction can make you a shrewd judge of sofa quality. The arms define the ends of a sofa and play a critical role in the overall look and function of the piece.

A sofa is made up of many different parts. And all these different parts can vary from sofa to sofa, giving each a distinct look and feel.
