There‘s a common tendency to want to push sofas up against the wall. In some rooms this is necessary due to size restrictions, however, in the majority of cases, there’s room to pull the sofa away from the wall. If this is the case in your home give it a try. It’s amazing what a difference it can make when the sofa has some breathing room.
There are always budget considerations to be sure, but buying a good quality sofa ensures that you don’t have to replace it within a couple of years. Buying a good quality sofa saves you money in the long run. Buy the best quality you can afford as buying a poor quality sofa means that it will lose its shape, looks and comfort factor pretty quickly, sometimes within a matter of months. A poor quality frame can also cause it to break, and you will have arms that jiggle and legs that aren't steady.
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.
