When you measure a sofa, don´t just stop at the length or the width because that will not give you the full picture and the measurements can be incorrect. Here is how to measure properly: Width: Measure the width from arm to arm because that is usually the widest part of the sofa. You need to make sure that you are taking the width measurements at the widest point. For instance, if the sofa you selected has rolled arms, measure from outside the widest part of one arm to the other arm and not at the bottom near the legs.

Furniture delivery people sometimes have to contend with trying to get a sofa into a home through windows or having to dismantle a sofa to take it inside. Sometimes, sofas are returned to stores because they don´t fit through doors or because they were too large or too small for the rooms they were intended for.

The biggest challenge of a light sofa is staining and wear. Before selecting a white or light sofa consider how the room is being used now, not how you hope it will be used. If your dog is like mine and believes that a sofa is just another large dog bed, then you would probably not want to put a white sofa in your living room without some serious retraining. If your sofa will be used by kids and pets, and you still love the idea of a light sofa, then washable slipcovers are a stylish compromise.

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.

The velvet portion is actually a cover, making it a cinch to keep clean. A tufted seat and two round bolster pillows add an air of sophistication to this sofa, while the mahogany legs keep it grounded.

When hanging anything above a sofa, keep in mind that the number one mistake people make is to hang something that´s too small. The piece, whatever it may be, should generally be about two-thirds the width of the sofa (unless you´re opting for something purposely over-scale). If you‘re hanging a group of pieces the same rule generally applies. Other than that the rules are pretty loose, so be creative and choose something that speaks to you and makes you smile.

This tufted couch from Urban Outfitters is doubly unobtrusive: Not only does it sit low to the ground, but its armless profile makes it an ideal addition to your boho-chic living space. Having guests? Recline the back to create a full-size bed—and the overstuffed cushions promise an extra-comfy experience.

The corners are further strengthened by the addition of reinforcing blocks for extra support and strength. Generally speaking, plywood and particleboard frames are inferior, especially if they are held together with staples. Additional layers of plywood can help reinforce the frame, so as you can see, construction matters as much as material. If you must choose a sofa with a plywood frame, make sure it has at least 11 to 13 layers of plywood.

When you have a sofa that dates back over a century, and you have invested good money in it, reupholstering it makes sense. This is not something that can be replaced by a brand new sofa. In this case, by reupholstering, you are actually restoring an antique. However, if this is an investment, this should not be attempted on your own. Get a qualified professional to do it, and it is going to be costly.

Although it's tempting to sleep—and sometimes you can't help dozing off—your sofa was not designed for it. Eventually, the frame and the cushion will sag and deteriorate because of the prolonged use. So while a nap now and then is fine, if you´re settling in for a full 8 hours do yourself a favor and make the trip to the bedroom.
