When choosing a slipcover, select a fabric that is tightly woven. Select a color or pattern that does not let the fabric underneath show through unless that is the effect you are after. Textures add so much to the look and feel of any furniture. Consider the use of texture before you decide on your slipcovers. Textured fabric such as twill, damask or denim can add visual interest, while also resisting wrinkling.
The scale of the traditional sofa (in form, not in style) is usually from 6 to 8 feet, although longer, or shorter, sofas can be custom made. The average sofa fits three people comfortably and is the piece most often chosen for the living room. In terms of style, sofas can be found in a wide range. Look for differences in the arms, legs, back, and sofa cushions (loose or attached). Varying upholstery details will also set traditional sofas apart on the showroom floor.
While it is difficult to sell used upholstered furniture at a garage sale or yard sale, it is not impossible. To a great extent, it depends on the condition of the piece. Only consider selling if it is in reasonable shape. Here‘s a good way to gauge the condition: if the tables were turned, would you want to buy it?
