So get creative and display something you love! The most common thing to put on a sofa is a single piece of artwork, but if the artwork is bland or blends in with the wall the impact is minimal. If you really want to create an eye-catching focal point, a bold piece that practically jumps off the wall is the way to go. Try something very large in size, vibrant in color, or graphically appealing in design. Ultimately, the term "bold" is open to interpretation, but the idea is that when a person walks into the room their eye is immediately drawn to the piece because it’s so striking.

English arms are low-profile and suitable if you like to take naps on your sofa. They are also good for small spaces, as they don‘t project beyond the body of the sofa. The front part of a pleated sofa arm is covered by fabric that is continued from the inside of the arm.

Cushions that do not fit snugly in place will also lose their shape quickly and the edges will start looking unsightly.

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. Patterns should be centered, and all seams and welts should run straight. Uneven welting and seams that are pulled to one side or another mean that the cover was badly tailored.

Now that you have considered the frame and seating support, it is time to look at what kind of filling is used for the cushions. The most common filling is high-density polyurethane. The higher the density, the firmer the cushion will be. Foam can be wrapped in softer material or cotton to make it softer. Dacron-wrapped foam is the cheapest option, but it won’t last as long.

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.

The back of a curved-back sofa curves all the way around so that it forms one solid piece with the arms, which are not attached separately. A pillow back sofa has more pillows than seat cushions, and therefore a softer feel. This style offers comfort that can also be adjusted by moving the pillows around. It does require more upkeep, though.
