Selecting the wrong color for your fabric can also be a serious mistake. It is always a good idea to bring a swatch home to look at it in relation to all your other furnishings, wall color, and light. Always choose a color you like and can live with. Don’t pick colors based on trends or just a whim. You will have to live with that color choice for years.
This sofa placement isn‘t for design novices. As a general rule, you don’t want to place a sofa in front of a door because you don’t want to block it, and you don't want people to walk into the back of the sofa. However, if there's enough space and the back of the sofa has nice upholstery, this look can work very well. But it´s imperative that there be enough space to still have a comfortable traffic path. You also want to make sure to minimize any potential of visual obstructions. So if there´s any doubt, don‘t do it.
If you are ordering a customized sofa, you have to understand that a lot depends on your level of customization. A different frame assembly may be required. There may be some delay in getting the fabric you request. The customized sofa may have to be shipped from a different state or even a different country. All or any of these factors can impact a delivery date and cost you additional time. The upside is that you end up with the sofa that you want and need, not just one that you settled for.
