I love the drama of the black wall and the way it makes the newly brown couch pop almost as if it‘s orange. I will always love fussy furniture painted in a solid color, and that glossy black coffee table is one of the best versions out there. The rug is a fabulous anchor to a primarily black-and-white room. The molded chair is the perfect combination of black, white, and wood, and it enhances the mid-century modern appeal of the sofa.

Throw pillows have the power to transform the ambiance in almost unlimited ways. You can play with pattern, shape, size and material.

Throw pillows come in every imaginable style so there’s no limit to what you can do.

If you are just tired of the fabric you have right now but don’t want to invest in a new piece of furniture, you may also want to look into slipcovers. I would definitely not recommend reupholstering in that event. In the end, it is simply a question of finding the best value.

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.

Down-proof ticking: Ticking is the inner lining of a cushion, usually tightly woven, that helps keep tiny down feathers from moving to a cushion's exterior. Eight-way hand-tied springs: Tied springs are connected to one another with strong twine that runs front to back, side to side, and diagonally in both directions. This construction interconnects the springs for durability and even support.

Simply determine the lines of the sofa you want to accent and then nail in the tacks (try to place them at even intervals of roughly ½ inch). Just be sure to choose a solid part of the frame so you’ve got a solid foundation to nail the trim into. And it should go without saying that you cannot do this on a slipcovered piece – only on one that’s upholstered.

Allowing stains to set in the fabric means they may become virtually impossible to clean. It will always vary depending on the fabric and the material that has soiled it, but if you don't take care of it right away, you run the risk of ruining it for good.

Kiln-dried frames are superior because you can be sure about the reduction of the moisture content to a satisfactory level. Another thing to remember about sofa frames is that a sofa frame that is made of kiln-dried hardwood is a much better choice than a softwood frame even if it is kiln dried. When you look for frames that will last, make sure to ask about how it has been constructed because that is just as important. A well-constructed frame has reinforced joints that are dowelled and glued and uses screws instead of staples.
