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.
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.
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.
