The scale of the traditional sofa (in form, not in style) is usually from 6 to 8 feet, although longer, or shorter, sofas can be custom made. The average sofa fits three people comfortably and is the piece most often chosen for the living room. In terms of style, sofas can be found in a wide range. Look for differences in the arms, legs, back, and sofa cushions (loose or attached). Varying upholstery details will also set traditional sofas apart on the showroom floor.
Cotton fabrics can be less durable and show wear faster than other fabrics, so parents with young children or pets may want to choose a more durable fabric. Using a separate fabric sofa cover is another great way to lengthen the life of your furniture and prevent stains. One complaint about this sofa is that the seat cushions are constructed in a way where they cannot be flipped. Many people prefer to flip their sofa cushions regularly, just like flipping a mattress, to allow the cushions to wear evenly. Though the cushions still look great a year on, the inability to hide stains by flipping a cushion may bother some owners. The back cushions can be flipped, though.
Once inside, the sofa can be assembled easily, with little effort and in very little time. On its homepage, the company has a video of an eight-year-old putting a sofa together in five minutes. What is even better, the furniture can be disassembled just as easily when moving, and then set up again without using any tools at all.
