"In our upholstery studio, we use horsehair over the structure as opposed to foam, because horsehair does not damage down. Foam gets completely dry also crumbly in 10 to 12 years."‐ David Michaud

This style can be found both on traditional and modern sofas or sofas with wood frames. It is generally conveys a formal look.

What kind of witchy sorcery did I use to create this magical transformation, you ask? A super top-secret, rare fiber found only in every craft store ever. I used Poly-fil, an easy-to-find, cheap (a 10lb box will run you about $30) blend of polyester that has a high tolerance for wear and tear.

A traditional, wood-framed couch may be a terrible choice for a home with kids — sharp corners have caused many emergency rooms worth of boo-boos. If there are little feet playing chase around your living room, consider soft, upholstered edges. Once you've settled on a size and style, start scouring the web. Leave no website unturned. There are a number of places to buy couches online (you can even hit up stores like Amazon or Target, which have a surprising selection, if you´re on a tight budget).

As homes get smaller, storage becomes more and more important, and people are starting to use every available bit of space to display their trinkets and treasures.

Just make sure they’re installed correctly so they don't fall on anyone sitting on the couch!

The corners are further strengthened by the addition of reinforcing blocks for extra support and strength. Generally speaking, plywood and particleboard frames are inferior, especially if they are held together with staples. Additional layers of plywood can help reinforce the frame, so as you can see, construction matters as much as material. If you must choose a sofa with a plywood frame, make sure it has at least 11 to 13 layers of plywood.

Additionally, the cushions should regain their shape after you press down and let go. A cushion that stays put when you press down will be flattened in no time, end up looking unsightly and feel uncomfortable when you sit on it. Cushions that do not fit snugly in place will also lose their shape quickly and the edges will start looking unsightly.

One of the downsides of some low-profile couches can be the lack of space between the bottom of the couch and the floor. While this legless aesthetic works beautifully in larger rooms, smaller rooms need a visual separation—a.k.a. actual couch legs—to keep the space airy. Joybird's Hughes Sofa pulls this look off wonderfully. The couch remains low enough to keeping the ceilings feeling sky-high, but isn't so blocky that it crowds smaller living spaces.
