The eight-way hand tied springs system is one of the best support systems. The craftsman connects each spring to the adjoining one with a strong twine. The twine passes front to back, side to side and then diagonally in both directions, thus tying each spring securely. Another method is sinuous spring construction. Sinuous springs are “S”-shaped and run from the front of the seat to the back. These springs are supported by additional wires that cross from side to side. This also makes for a strong seat, and it might be the preferred option in a sleeker style or smaller frame because it requires less space.
Facing the mantel - In most rooms where there's a mantel, the mantel is the focal point. Since you always want to place furniture so that it faces the focal point. across from a mantel is the perfect place to put a sofa. Across from another sofa - Since visual balance is so important, there´s no better place to put a sofa than facing another (preferably matching) sofa. In small rooms, this isn´t usually possible, but in larger rooms where space can accommodate, it‘s a layout worth considering.
Sectional sofas can sometimes be tricky. Because of their shape, it‘s very tempting to stick them in corners. However, sectionals can work beautifully when pulled away from the walls. Since they provide so much seating they’re not often accompanied by a lot of other pieces of furniture, meaning you’ve got the space to play around with them. So give them some breathing room and allow space behind to walk. In some cases, sectionals can also work as room dividers, with one side providing a visual break between spaces. So don't get pigeonholed by the shape, and make your sectional work for your space.
When to Disclose It: When you require to make a comment. Playing it safe is always a clever idea, but it's not evermore a fun plan! A bright sofa in a strong color or trim can add life and enthusiasm in a way that few other objects can. So if you find the whole sofa in a color you've always liked don't be intimidated to take this uncertainty. As long as you're not purchasing something just because it's fashionable and you're sticking with something you truly admire you likely won't deplore it.
