This allows for covers to be easily removed for cleaning.

Is it for TV watching, curling up with a good book or formal entertaining? There's no point in getting a stiff and formal sofa if you plan to put your feet up and watch TV, nor do you want your guests to sink into the cushions and not be able to get up when you're entertaining.

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.

For fire safety reasons, look for the gold UFAC tag, indicating that the sofa manufacturer certifies it is made in accordance with UFAC methods. UFAC or the Upholstered Furniture Action Council was founded in 1978 and its purpose was to make upholstered furniture more resistant to ignition from smoldering cigarettes.
