Now don’t just shove a bunch of cotton batting in there because it will result in a lumpy cushion. Instead, take off the cover (most sofas these days have removable covers) and wrap the cushion in a layer or two of quilt batting or foam wrap. If you find it shifts around a bit secure it using a spray adhesive. And if you find there are still a few saggy spots, now is the time to fill them with extra pieces of cotton batting. Easy peasy.

A small amount of spray adhesive applied to the foam can help the batting stick to it so it stays in place once you put the covers back on. If possible, have someone help you put the covers back on the cushions. All those layers of batting make it a tight fit- but that is what you're looking for, so ask someone to lend a hand to make your job less painful.

Every week we research new product categories and bring our final picks into the office, where we haggle and decide which ones make the final list. Everything is based on quality, appearance, and price. These are what we would choose for our own home.

To achieve a Scandi-inspired, minimalist look, pair a set of slouchy square pillows in one corner of the sofa (preferably one solid and one patterned), and prop a smaller, rectangular-shaped pillow in the center of the other cushion. Instead of predictably tucking a single pillow into the corner of your sofa, why not take inspiration from Cottage Cloth and place a set facing inward? We love her choice of contrasting striped fabric, too.

Allowing stains to set in the fabric means they may become virtually impossible to clean. It will always vary depending on the fabric and the material that has soiled it, but if you don't take care of it right away, you run the risk of ruining it for good.

The term sculpture is very broad, but basically, it means any item that isn‘t a traditional piece of art (i.e. painting or photograph). It could be an interesting architectural piece such as a bracket, a sculptural wall sconce, faux antlers, or anything else you find that speaks to you. The key here is to look for pieces that don‘t have a lot of depth so they won’t infringe on the space out over the sofa.

There are two types of engineered wood, plywood, and particle board. Particle board is not suitable for sofa frames, or any weight bearing frames for that matter because they are made from wood chips and fibers glued together. Plywood is engineered by gluing several thin layers of wood together and can be strong enough for sofa frames depending on the type of wood, and the thickness of the frame.

Knowing how to identify each main part and its variations can help you describe the sofa you want to a salesperson or designer. Understanding the basics of sofa construction can make you a shrewd judge of sofa quality. The arms define the ends of a sofa and play a critical role in the overall look and function of the piece.

One of the downsides of some low-profile couches can be the lack of space between the bottom of the couch and the floor. While this legless aesthetic works beautifully in larger rooms, smaller rooms need a visual separation—a.k.a. actual couch legs—to keep the space airy. Joybird's Hughes Sofa pulls this look off wonderfully. The couch remains low enough to keeping the ceilings feeling sky-high, but isn't so blocky that it crowds smaller living spaces.

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. From the movers scratching your hardwood floors to receiving an already scratched sofa, be prepared to document.
