Cushioned seat covers typically are removable.

Although it might not catch your eye right away, mismatched patterns or stripes will give you the sense that something is"off". Stripes that match at seams make a sofa look well finished. Patterns should be centered, and all seams and welts should run straight. Uneven welting and seams that are pulled to one side or another mean that the cover was badly tailored.

If space doesn't allow for this use graph paper.

You may have difficulty finding just the right size, but this will help. By combining the top of a table with cushions of an ottoman, you’ll get the comfort for resting your feet and the convenience of space to place items.

Sometimes you can walk into a room and it seems obvious where the sofa should go, but in other rooms, it's not so easy.

This low-lying couch combines the best of both worlds: Thanks to its curvy lucite legs, the sofa bottom looks like it's laying flat on the ground. But there's enough room for air and light to pass through, making this an ideal pick for rooms with either high or low ceilings. And the Chesterfield‘s tufted, jewel-toned velvet fabric adds a luxurious, modern vibe to any living room.

The scale of the traditional sofa (in form, not in style) is usually from 6 to 8 feet, although longer, or shorter, sofas can be custom made. The average sofa fits three people comfortably and is the piece most often chosen for the living room. In terms of style, sofas can be found in a wide range. Look for differences in the arms, legs, back, and sofa cushions (loose or attached). Varying upholstery details will also set traditional sofas apart on the showroom floor.

Now that you have considered the frame and seating support, it is time to look at what kind of filling is used for the cushions. The most common filling is high-density polyurethane.
