n front of a window - Although you never want to block a window, a sofa placed in front of one can look great as long as the back of the sofa is relatively low. Just be sure to leave a gap of about 10" to 12" to give the piece some breathing room and to allow for window treatments. Across from a window - If you've got a nice big window at the front or back of the room, try placing your sofa across from it in order to take advantage of the great view and natural architectural element.
Why are kiln dried sofa frames better than air-dried or any other kind? Kiln dried sofa frames are considered a safe bet that your sofa frame is strong enough to last you a long time for several reasons. However, before we go into those reasons, you have to remember that it is not just important to look for kiln dried frames, but kiln-dried frames.
There are alternatives to kiln-dried hardwood frames. Metal sofa frames are available, too, but metal can be prone to oxidation along with seasonal changes. Changes in humidity can affect metal frames, so look for one that has been treated to protect against atmospheric changes. Plywood frames as long as they are thick enough can also work well. As a matter of fact, many leading manufacturers now use well-constructed plywood frames.
The delivery for this couch was very active although they arrived quicker than listed which cut into my Saturday rest in, The couch itself is very sufficient and well crafted. Attaching the feet (which come contained in a zip-covered compartment in the bottom) is much simple although on one foot a bit of the liner muslin got rotated about the screw of the foundation and so I had to detach and reattach it to make sure it wasn't tangled up and completely connected.
