Simplicity Sofas manufactures large and small sofas, apartment sofas, studio sofas, sleepers, and sectionals at its High Point, NC plant. The furniture is custom-built to customers’ specifications and then shipped directly to them through UPS freight. The most outstanding feature is that even its largest sofas can fit through small doorways and be carried through hallways and staircases easily. The largest sofa needs a width of only 15", while sectionals need 8". This is ideal for small spaces and apartments.
That’s when reviews come in handy. Let previous buyers be your guide: did they find it too soft, too hard, or too flimsy? Pay attention to their critiques. But also pay attention to how the store responds. Flukes do happen, especially with online sales — sometimes couches come off the assembly line with a flawed coil spring or too much stuffing. Companies that respond admirably (say, by replacing the customer’s couch) are likely still worthy of your time.
Not all fabric is suitable for slipcovers. As a general rule, it is best to avoid very heavy fabrics such as chenille and velvets as they may not adapt very well to the shape a sofa or chair. But rules are meant to be broken and these materials can be good for a very custom-made, structured look. But as a general rule, slipcover fabric should usually be of medium-weight to more easily fit over your furniture.
