How long a sofa will last and retain its shape depends largely on the frame, and a high-quality sofa always has a strong, sturdy one: The best frame is made out of kiln-dried hardwood. The process of kiln drying removes all moisture from the wood, enabling it to retain its shape and stability over a long period of time. A frame made of green wood can shrink or crack as it dries. Softwood can bend and break easily, while knotted wood is prone to cracks.
