A different frame assembly may be required. There may be some delay in getting the fabric you request. The customized sofa may have to be shipped from a different state or even a different country. All or any of these factors can impact a delivery date and cost you additional time. The upside is that you end up with the sofa that you want and need, not just one that you settled for.

Some would like a sofa they can sink into, while others prefer a firmer seat. Which one do you like? Try sitting on different fills to select the level of firmness or softness that you like.

Pads made out of a Dacron polyester fiber and down, known as Blendown pads, are wrapped around high-density foam. These pads can also be used with springs that have been wrapped up in foam. High-density foam surrounds the springs, which are then wrapped in down pads. The result is a soft surface with a strong, resilient support inside. This is a good option because the cushions do not lose their shape easily.

For fire safety reasons, look for the gold UFAC tag, indicating that the sofa manufacturer certifies it is made in accordance with UFAC methods.

Slipcovers aren’t as expensive as they used to be (although they’re still not cheap) and they’re available in a huge variety of fabrics and colors.

And if you have an IKEA sofa you’re in luck – there are a few companies who make slipcovers specifically for IKEA furniture.
