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.

It usually has a wood frame, open arms, and an upholstered seat. It is considered more formal (and usually more uncomfortable) than a love seat and sits a bit higher.

In some rooms this is necessary due to size restrictions, however, in the majority of cases, there’s room to pull the sofa away from the wall. If this is the case in your home give it a try. It’s amazing what a difference it can make when the sofa has some breathing room.
