Make sure that you are getting high-density foam because lesser-quality foam can start breaking down pretty quickly, causing sags, and the fabric does not stay taut when that happens.

Once you've narrowed down your sofa color and fabric selections. Choose a few different selections: pick a range of similar colors, or trial a shade in both microfiber and velvet.
