This type of wood is stronger and better suited to most types of furniture making. Soft woods come from evergreen trees such as pines and cedar. This type of wood can bend or dent easily and therefore is not suitable where you need strength, such as in sofa frames. So while it is good to look for kiln dried wood, remember to as if the frame is constructed from hardwood rather than soft wood.

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 don't get pigeonholed by the shape, and make your sectional work for your space.

Quality goes deeper than looks, and that is why two identical-looking sofas can vary so much in price. What lies inside determines how your sofa rates for quality. The frame, seating support and filling not only determine your sofa’s level of comfort but also its ability to retain its shape and stability in the years to come.

Sometimes you can walk into a room and it seems obvious where the sofa should go, but in other rooms, it's not so easy.

While this legless aesthetic works beautifully in larger rooms, smaller rooms need a visual separation—a.k.a. actual couch legs—to keep the space airy. Joybird's Hughes Sofa pulls this look off wonderfully. The couch remains low enough to keeping the ceilings feeling sky-high, but isn't so blocky that it crowds smaller living spaces.

People are creatures of habit, and when it comes to relaxing we often, without thinking, head to our favorite spot on the sofa. But sitting in the same spot over and over again can do the sofa quite a bit of harm—crushing the fibers and wearing down the springs underneath. So mix it up and sit on different parts of the sofa. One day sit on the left side, one day sit on the right, and another day try the middle. Distributing the weight evenly over time will help anyone spot from deteriorating too quickly.
