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.
When you choose sofa or chair slipcovers, you are actually choosing to dress up your furniture. Just as you would pay attention to fabric weight, textures, and fit when you dress a human body, you should consider what would best fit your piece of furniture. I should also point out that slipcovers may not always be the perfect solution for a certain chair or sofa styles.
Consider the couch's structure, too. A traditional, wood-framed couch may be a terrible choice for a home with kids — sharp corners have caused many emergency rooms worth of boo-boos. If there are little feet playing chase around your living room, consider soft, upholstered edges. Once you've settled on a size and style, start scouring the web. Leave no website unturned. There are a number of places to buy couches online (you can even hit up stores like Amazon or Target, which have a surprising selection, if you´re on a tight budget).
