A large built frame, a pair of cement columns, interesting sculptures, or large pots can serve as a stable base for a piece of 1/2 inch thick beveled-edge plate glass, cut to the perfect size. This is a good option for a very small space, as you can place the bases as close together or as far apart as you wish and have the glass cut to fit your space. Keep in mind that the larger the glass, the heavier it will be. So the bases need to be sturdy enough to support the weight.
Hardwood is wood that we get from trees such as oak, maple, cherry walnut and other broad-leafed deciduous trees. This type of wood is stronger and better suited to most types of furniture making. Soft woods come from evergreen trees such as pines and cedar. This type of wood can bend or dent easily and therefore is not suitable where you need strength, such as in sofa frames. So while it is good to look for kiln dried wood, remember to as if the frame is constructed from hardwood rather than soft wood.
Don´t assume that it will be same day delivery or next day delivery because different retail stores have different policies regarding furniture delivery. Maybe they deliver only certain days of the week or the warehouse in a different location. Even if that is the case, delivery will be speedier than if you were to order a customized sofa. However, you should ask your salesperson about delivery before you commit to a sofa purchase.
