It's not that I didn't want one or need one. I just never found just the right coffee table that I wanted. Maybe I´ve procrastinated too long, now. I am still looking.

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.

However, sectionals can work beautifully when pulled away from the walls. Since they provide so much seating they’re not often accompanied by a lot of other pieces of furniture, meaning you’ve got the space to play around with them. So give them some breathing room and allow space behind to walk. In some cases, sectionals can also work as room dividers, with one side providing a visual break between spaces. So don't get pigeonholed by the shape, and make your sectional work for your space.

There were many "oohs" and "aahs" from my parents, along with accounts of how much more comfy it felt and how happy they were that they wouldn´t have to think about getting rid of it anytime soon.

On its homepage, the company has a video of an eight-year-old putting a sofa together in five minutes. What is even better, the furniture can be disassembled just as easily when moving, and then set up again without using any tools at all.

If it is a very good quality sofa, and the cost of reupholstering it comes out less than getting a sofa of comparable value, by all means, go for it. You may want to get quotes from two or three different re-upholsterers for all fabric and parts, and then weigh it against what you would pay for a new sofa of the same quality.

Before buying a coffee table, place a large piece of newsprint or brown on the floor in front of the sofa to help determine an appropriate size and shape. You can cut down the paper or add to it until you get the right proportion for the rest of the furniture and the room.

A hollow back is indicative of poor construction. You want it to be padded. Do test it out before buying. While you´re in the store sit down, lie down, put your feet up – if you‘re going to be doing it at home you should try it first in the store (within reason). Don‘t forget to measure. Make sure to take note of the width, depthe, height, seat height and arm height.

If you'd like to recreate this look exactly, the paint used was Montana Colors' Greyhound Brown, but you could also use spray paint specially formulated for painting vinyl (pleather) and fabric.

Meri leaves us with these wise words of advice that apply to projects large and small: "Wear a mask when you spray paint."

I usually recommend starting with the largest and most expensive item, which, in the case of a living room or family room, is usually the sofa. The sofa is usually a focal point, the seating area most often used, and, if the wrong choice is made, the source of the most complaint. It's important to chose the right sofa style and size for your design.
