”As a furnishings maker, I’ll tell you that an excellent frame constructed from kiln‐dried maple is extremely important. Springs placed a great deal of torque on a structure; it has to be constructed from hardwood that's not too eco‐amiable. Often, the fabric stands the test of time yet the structure goes‐ there's a broken leg or an arm off‐balance. A strong framework will maintain that from occurring.”‐ David Michaud, Jonas Furniture.

Select deep or shallow seats depending on your height. A taller person will need deeper seats. The arms should not jiggle or move, and if upholstered, they should be well padded. If there are any buttons, check to see that they are sewn on securely. Loose buttons will come off and end up getting lost in no time.

Your final product will end up looking really puffy and overstuffed, but the fill will start to settle after a few weeks, so you want to pack it as full as you can. Next, move on to the seat cushions. Remove the cover and set to the side, and vacuum the cushions to get rid of any deteriorating foam.

Select a color or pattern that does not let the fabric underneath show through unless that is the effect you are after. Textures add so much to the look and feel of any furniture. Consider the use of texture before you decide on your slipcovers. Textured fabric such as twill, damask or denim can add visual interest, while also resisting wrinkling.

So get creative and display something you love! The most common thing to put on a sofa is a single piece of artwork, but if the artwork is bland or blends in with the wall the impact is minimal. If you really want to create an eye-catching focal point, a bold piece that practically jumps off the wall is the way to go. 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.

Two small square tables, placed side by side, give a slightly more formal look than the more modern large coffee table. A matched pair looks best, but a mismatched set of small tables, of exactly the same height, can be used together with matching tops.

The long flat top works well for placing books and beverages without adding too much formality.

However, sectionals can work beautifully when pulled away from the walls. Since they provide so much seating they’re not often accompanied by a lot of other pieces of furniture, meaning you’ve got the space to play around with them. So give them some breathing room and allow space behind to walk. In some cases, sectionals can also work as room dividers, with one side providing a visual break between spaces. So don't get pigeonholed by the shape, and make your sectional work for your space.
