This drastic reduction in wood´s moisture content is important so that the wood doesn´t warp or shrink with changes in humidity and temperature. Warping or shrinkage can destabilize your sofa, and even cause it to lose its shape. You would not see that happening in a quality sofa. Air drying can also work well, but since often times the process is not controlled enough, so you cannot be sure that the wood‘s moisture content is sufficiently reduced.
Before buying a coffee table, place a large piece of newsprint or brown on the floor in front of the sofa to help determine an appropriate size and shape. You can cut down the paper or add to it until you get the right proportion for the rest of the furniture and the room.
Make sure that you are getting high-density foam because lesser-quality foam can start breaking down pretty quickly, causing sags, and the fabric does not stay taut when that happens. If you want a really soft seat, consider down cushions. These are considered to be the premium choice, and as you might imagine they are also among the most expensive. High-quality cushions have down-proof ticking under the upholstery fabric to prevent feathers from poking through. Cushions filled just with down are high-maintenance and can need daily attention.
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.
