Oftentimes a sofa seat will have just a single cushion. This is also called a bench seat. A single-cushion seat offers a tidy, minimal look but also can be combined with a pillow back, which is more about casual comfort than minimalism. When you sit down on one end of a good single cushion, it will not rise up on the other end.
Deck: The deck is the surface that lies directly underneath the seat cushions. Down-proof ticking: Ticking is the inner lining of a cushion, usually tightly woven, that helps keep tiny down feathers from moving to a cushion's exterior. Eight-way hand-tied springs: Tied springs are connected to one another with strong twine that runs front to back, side to side, and diagonally in both directions. This construction interconnects the springs for durability and even support.
Knowing how to identify each main part and its variations can help you describe the sofa you want to a salesperson or designer. Understanding the basics of sofa construction can make you a shrewd judge of sofa quality. The arms define the ends of a sofa and play a critical role in the overall look and function of the piece.
