Sit on different fabrics long enough till you find one that is right for you. This is especially important if it is going to be "the sofa," that special one that is used all the time.

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.

There are always budget considerations to be sure, but buying a good quality sofa ensures that you don’t have to replace it within a couple of years. Buying a good quality sofa saves you money in the long run. Buy the best quality you can afford as buying a poor quality sofa means that it will lose its shape, looks and comfort factor pretty quickly, sometimes within a matter of months.

Fingers crossed your delivery happens without issues and your new couch is a pristine dream — but you'll want full documentation if anything goes awry.

Although it might not catch your eye right away, mismatched patterns or stripes will give you the sense that something is"off". Stripes that match at seams make a sofa look well finished.

Sunlight can bleach certain fabrics, and in other cases cause them to fade and deteriorate over time, so it’s important not to leave your sofa in a sunny spot.

Keep your sofa out of the sun, or at least rotate it regularly to keep it looking new.

It's not that I didn't want one or need one. I just never found just the right coffee table that I wanted. Maybe I´ve procrastinated too long, now. I am still looking.
