Mirrors are important decorative tools.They reflect light, they open up spaces, and they just make rooms look better in general.

Let previous buyers be your guide: did they find it too soft, too hard, or too flimsy? Pay attention to their critiques. But also pay attention to how the store responds. Flukes do happen, especially with online sales — sometimes couches come off the assembly line with a flawed coil spring or too much stuffing. Companies that respond admirably (say, by replacing the customer’s couch) are likely still worthy of your time.

If it is a very good quality sofa, and the cost of reupholstering it comes out less than getting a sofa of comparable value, by all means, go for it.

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.

The unexpected color has a nice rosiness to it; we see more cool- and gray-toned browns these days so it´s a nice change. Meri Defferrari—@merideffe2 on Instagram—is an artist in Argentina who had the confidence and vision needed to dive into painting a major piece like this, and that boldness has paid off quite handsomely.

Try something very large in size, vibrant in color, or graphically appealing in design. Ultimately, the term "bold" is open to interpretation, but the idea is that when a person walks into the room their eye is immediately drawn to the piece because it’s so striking.
