A large built frame, a pair of cement columns, interesting sculptures, or large pots can serve as a stable base for a piece of 1/2 inch thick beveled-edge plate glass, cut to the perfect size. This is a good option for a very small space, as you can place the bases as close together or as far apart as you wish and have the glass cut to fit your space. Keep in mind that the larger the glass, the heavier it will be. So the bases need to be sturdy enough to support the weight.

To get delivery of your sofa sooner, try buying a sofa that is already in stock and does not require any customization. Here's how it works. If you walk into a store and select a sofa that is in stock, you can get it delivered fairly quickly. Since the store has the sofa in their warehouse and is not being customized in any way, it can be a fairly simple process.

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.

This drastic reduction in wood´s moisture content is important so that the wood doesn´t warp or shrink with changes in humidity and temperature. Warping or shrinkage can destabilize your sofa, and even cause it to lose its shape. You would not see that happening in a quality sofa. Air drying can also work well, but since often times the process is not controlled enough, so you cannot be sure that the wood‘s moisture content is sufficiently reduced.

The back has a firm feel and can provide a clean, tailored, and formal look. A waterfall sofa back has two or more vertical layers of gathered and billowing cushions that are attached to the back. Sofa seats are more than just places to discover lost items. The right feel of a seat is critical to your enjoyment of a sofa.

There are a number of things to consider before purchasing your new couch, but the most important consideration is how the furniture will fit in your space. You´ll need to know a few different measurements: first, get the raw numbers for the length and width of the room in which your couch will reside. Yes, you might be able to squish an 84-inch couch into your space — but will your guests be squished, too? Ideally, there should be 36 inches between the wall and your furniture and 18 inches between your couch and the coffee table. This can also help you decide between a standard rectangular couch and a sectional. After all, nothing makes a cramped space feel tighter than an awkward sofa leg jutting across the floor.

The most important things to consider are quality and comfort, especially if you plan to spend any amount of time on your sofa. The best looking sofa in the whole world cannot measure up to the most comfortable one. That is why you need to test drive one before you buy, just the way you would test drive a car.

The craftsman connects each spring to the adjoining one with a strong twine. The twine passes front to back, side to side and then diagonally in both directions, thus tying each spring securely. Another method is sinuous spring construction. Sinuous springs are “S”-shaped and run from the front of the seat to the back. These springs are supported by additional wires that cross from side to side. This also makes for a strong seat, and it might be the preferred option in a sleeker style or smaller frame because it requires less space.
