A photo gallery can allow you to create a really dramatic impact and it saves you from having to choose just one piece. Just remember when hanging pieces to create a gallery wall that all the items together will act as one unit. The center of the entire display should be at eye level. It's always best to plan this type of display before you start hanging. Place the pieces on the ground in front of the wall and play around with the arrangement until you find one that satisfies you. If space doesn't allow for this use graph paper.

A mere few seconds of quickly plopping down on one is not going to tell you much about it. A good salesperson will understand and not bother you while you are trying on different sofas for size. You need to get an understanding of how it feels when you stay sitting on it for a while.

When you customize a sofa by selecting a different fabric, arm, back or size then you are looking at a delivery date that is anywhere from 4 to12 weeks in the future, usually. Often you may find that it takes even longer. A lot of customers try to pressure the store for earlier delivery and then get upset when the sofa is not delivered by the requested delivery date. It doesn´t work out for the customer, and it doesn‘t work out for the store because there are two things wrong with this scenario: a store making a promise that it cannot keep and a customer setting herself up for disappointment.

However, before you even go shopping for a sofa, think about your own personal style and what would be a good match for your home. Consider size and scale, and never forget to measure. Color and fabric selection matters a lot, and choosing the right color, texture, pattern are all parts of fabric selection. After all, most sofa selections are made on the basis of fabric alone.

Not too shabby! For the seat cushions, I simply wrapped quilt batting around the entire seat and stuffed it back into the covers. Placing the fill behind the existing cushion will help to keep everything looking smooth. Pack the Poly-fil in like you're stuffing a turkey.

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.

It is true that you are saving this furniture from potentially going to a landfill, know that reupholstering an old sofa could end up costing more than you would pay for a new one. Even after you have it reupholstered, it could still be uncomfortable. I am assuming you just mean to have the sofa re-covered, and are not planning to change its insides.

A large built frame, a pair of cement columns, interesting sculptures, or large pots can serve as a stable base for a piece of 1/2 inch thick beveled-edge plate glass, cut to the perfect size. This is a good option for a very small space, as you can place the bases as close together or as far apart as you wish and have the glass cut to fit your space. Keep in mind that the larger the glass, the heavier it will be. So the bases need to be sturdy enough to support the weight.

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.
