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.
This may be the most common mistake of them all. This happens when you don‘t measure your space or the sofa or sometimes neglect both. Don’t go by how big the sofa looks in the store. A sofa might look deceptively small in a showroom but could end up being too big for your room, so not measuring your space or your sofa can create many problems. Other than measuring the size of your space, pay attention to the scale. Your sofa should be the same scale as your other furniture so it doesn’t seem too big or too small placed alongside the rest of it.
Engineered wood is just what the name implies. It has been engineered to achieve its present form. There are two types of engineered wood, plywood, and particle board. Particle board is not suitable for sofa frames, or any weight bearing frames for that matter because they are made from wood chips and fibers glued together. Plywood is engineered by gluing several thin layers of wood together and can be strong enough for sofa frames depending on the type of wood, and the thickness of the frame.
I spent way too many hours staring at couches online and working to understand reviews, so I hope this helps explain some questions others did not, I did buy the beige Couch came in 1 piece and all I had to do was a screw on the legs which took about 7 mins and no tools. Couch was well made and by design that is not some fluffy couch, instead, it's desire comes from the character where it feels very firm and all joints strong. I would not want to take a nap on this couch every night, but for a formal living room, seating area, it was very nice and I would buy again and this was a very nice couch either.
