When you are buying furniture for a new design or remodel, where do you start? I usually recommend starting with the largest and most expensive item, which, in the case of a living room or family room, is usually the sofa. The sofa is usually a focal point, the seating area most often used, and, if the wrong choice is made, the source of the most complaint. It's important to chose the right sofa style and size for your design.
When choosing a slipcover, select a fabric that is tightly woven. Select a color or pattern that does not let the fabric underneath show through unless that is the effect you are after. Textures add so much to the look and feel of any furniture. Consider the use of texture before you decide on your slipcovers. Textured fabric such as twill, damask or denim can add visual interest, while also resisting wrinkling.
Though only time will tell the true nature of the Kivik sofas from IKEA, after a year, many owners remain happy with the quality and the comfort of their furniture. IKEA is a great brand for shoppers who want the look of high-end furniture without the high-end price tag. Simplicity Sofas is a young company that was established in 2007 and makes ready to assemble sofas. The timing at the beginning of a stubborn recession could have put it in trouble, but the company has flourished and grown steadily year over year.
