Sofa delivery can take anywhere from the same day to 12 weeks or even more depending on what kind of sofa you buy. To get delivery of your sofa sooner, try buying a sofa that is already in stock and does not require any customization. Here's how it works. If you walk into a store and select a sofa that is in stock, you can get it delivered fairly quickly. Since the store has the sofa in their warehouse and is not being customized in any way, it can be a fairly simple process.
In a good-quality frame, the joints get special attention. They are glued, dowelled, and screwed. The corners are further strengthened by the addition of reinforcing blocks for extra support and strength. Generally speaking, plywood and particleboard frames are inferior, especially if they are held together with staples. Additional layers of plywood can help reinforce the frame, so as you can see, construction matters as much as material. If you must choose a sofa with a plywood frame, make sure it has at least 11 to 13 layers of plywood.
The seating support is also an important component in determining the quality of a sofa. It works in tandem with the frame and the filling. A sturdy frame provides an anchor for good seating support and filling augments it. You should always test the quality of seating support by sitting on a sofa before you buy it. It shouldn‘t sag, and it should provide good support in the seat and in the back.
