While it is difficult to sell used upholstered furniture at a garage sale or yard sale, it is not impossible. To a great extent, it depends on the condition of the piece. Only consider selling if it is in reasonable shape. Here‘s a good way to gauge the condition: if the tables were turned, would you want to buy it?
Narrowing down your couch options means making some hard decisions about upholstery. Think seriously about this couch and its intended use. Will it be a one-size-fits-all, everyone-is-welcome (including Fido!) family couch? Consider microfiber upholstery, which can handle a bit of rough-housing. Definitely don’t pick silk, which will rip the second your kitten’s claws come out. Or are you hoping to order a showcase piece for your formal living room? Go for silk, or pick something with a lot of texture.
Think backless sofa. It is usually placed against a wall with pillows added for comfort. A version of this sofa with one side angled to recline is called a "fainting couch" - ideal for those with a more delicate temperament. This is a form of love seat. It usually has a wood frame, open arms, and an upholstered seat. It is considered more formal (and usually more uncomfortable) than a love seat and sits a bit higher.
Care: The waste plus rip of fabric sofas common frequently depends in the form of fabric. As your expectation, high‐quality material will withstand wear better. Most material couches are handled with a stain‐resistant glaze. So meanwhile spills do appear, they're easily brushed with specialization results or a handheld vapor cleanser. Also, fabric doesn´t get scratched like leather does, so it tends to handle pet´s claws also kid‘s homework binders better than leather. Color together with pattern options: Although leather can come in a variety of colors, fabrics are truly unlimited in pattern, texture, in‐conjunction with color. So you‘ll have a enormously better opportunity of rivaling existing decor as well as noticing the attention you require.
