If you are ordering a customized sofa, you have to understand that a lot depends on your level of customization. A different frame assembly may be required. There may be some delay in getting the fabric you request. The customized sofa may have to be shipped from a different state or even a different country. All or any of these factors can impact a delivery date and cost you additional time. The upside is that you end up with the sofa that you want and need, not just one that you settled for.
Sofas are big, so where they´re placed can have a big impact on the traffic flow in the room. People should never have to awkwardly step around items in order to pass through a room. Nor should there be any tripping hazards. It‘s important to make sure that there are a couple of feet between the coffee table and sofa, and between the sofa and any chairs. Create a clear path so people can walk from one end of the room to the other without difficulty.
Now that you have considered the frame and seating support, it is time to look at what kind of filling is used for the cushions. The most common filling is high-density polyurethane. The higher the density, the firmer the cushion will be. Foam can be wrapped in softer material or cotton to make it softer. Dacron-wrapped foam is the cheapest option, but it won’t last as long.
