”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.

If you´re outfitting a small room, consider taping off your potential couch placement to make sure your measurements feel right. Then, pick a couch height and depth that feels right for you. What feels coziest to your best friend may feel way too deep for you. The best way to determine this measurement is to curl up on couch you (or a friend or family member) already owns. Too deep? Buy something smaller. Too skinny? You‘ll know to buy larger. Just right? Jot down that measurement — you‘ve found a winner.

A padded frame will not stick out through the upholstery, it also means less friction for the fabric that is covering the frame. Check the sofa from behind, and pat the center to make sure it isn't hollow.

When you have a sofa that dates back over a century, and you have invested good money in it, reupholstering it makes sense. This is not something that can be replaced by a brand new sofa. In this case, by reupholstering, you are actually restoring an antique. However, if this is an investment, this should not be attempted on your own. Get a qualified professional to do it, and it is going to be costly.

Even after you narrow down the style and fabric, you still have to consider height. Luckily, low-profile sofas are making a comeback in a big way—and they're ideal for transforming a small room into a cavernous escape. Dress up your living room with one of these low-slung models. You may find swapping out your tall, oversized sofa for these shorter, sleeker versions makes your space feel airy and bright.

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. If the back of the piece is exposed to sunlight all the time, it will eventually fade to a lighter color than the front, and vice verse. Or if half is in the sun, it will fade to a lighter color than the other half. Or if you keep a throw pillow in the same spot, you’ll notice a significant difference in color when you remove it. Keep your sofa out of the sun, or at least rotate it regularly to keep it looking new.

The biggest challenge of a light sofa is staining and wear. Before selecting a white or light sofa consider how the room is being used now, not how you hope it will be used. If your dog is like mine and believes that a sofa is just another large dog bed, then you would probably not want to put a white sofa in your living room without some serious retraining. If your sofa will be used by kids and pets, and you still love the idea of a light sofa, then washable slipcovers are a stylish compromise.

Going to such expense is only be worthwhile under a few conditions, and here they are: If the sofa has been in your family for a while and has been a prized possession with a history and special sentimental value, you may want to hold on to it.
