A photo gallery can allow you to create a really dramatic impact and it saves you from having to choose just one piece.

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.

Softwood can bend and break easily, while knotted wood is prone to cracks.
