”As a furnishings maker, I’ll tell you that an excellent frame constructed from kiln‐dried maple is extremely important. Springs placed a great deal of torque on a structure; it has to be constructed from hardwood that's not too eco‐amiable. Often, the fabric stands the test of time yet the structure goes‐ there's a broken leg or an arm off‐balance. A strong framework will maintain that from occurring.”‐ David Michaud, Jonas Furniture.

As you can see a complete re-upholstery job involves a lot of labor and replacement of material, and is more structural in nature.

Don´t assume that it will be same day delivery or next day delivery because different retail stores have different policies regarding furniture delivery. Maybe they deliver only certain days of the week or the warehouse in a different location. Even if that is the case, delivery will be speedier than if you were to order a customized sofa.

All moving parts on a sofa bed or reclining sofa should clear the fabric completely to avoid tearing. You don't want any injuries to yourself or damage to your upholstery from a faulty mechanism.

Not only will bumps and hard spots mar the look of your sofa over a short period of time, they will also feel uncomfortable.
