Furniture is one of the most important, yet least appreciated aspects of life. You rest on it, your kids play on it, you sleep on it, and in many cases, you have it your entire life. Many people don't appreciate the sheer size of the furniture industry and are tricked into believing that WalMart, Costco, and BigLots! are the only places to buy furniture. These furniture retailers offer truly cheap furniture, as affordable as it is fickle, and often omit any consideration for quality in pursuit of hitting a price point. These are the $300 sofa sets, the $250 bedroom sets, and the $25 cocktail tables—marketed to compulsive and low-income buyers. BigLots will finance a $500 sofa for 12 months, and jump at the opportunity to start charging a whopping 29.99% interest rate after that. 1 These retailers don't care about the lifecycle of their products, and ultimately not about you. While the total market share of these types of companies is staggering, there are still so many quality furniture brands available. While these brands aren't cheap by comparison, purchasing these products online can save a tremendous amount of money—often as much as 40%!
If you are lucky enough to be able to remove and launder your sofa cushion covers and back pillow covers, you have already extended the life of your couch by years! But, inevitably, the current cushion and pillow fabrics grow tired, faded, or show too many fabric pills (small ball of fibres that forms on a piece of cloth from wear), and it is time to invest some time and energy into getting new fabric or a whole new sofa.
What is the best sofa brand?
Couches left outside. Do not buy a sofa or couch that has been left outside to be preyed upon by rain, snow, sun, insects and other strays. These sofas are not worth to be kept inside your living room.
You also want to make sure that your lounge matches the decor of the rest of the house. If you have a contemporary home, you will want to compliment your living area with a modern style lounge. If you already have more traditional furnishings, you will want to select a sofa that suits the look of your home.
Many people do not realize that the best of these web fabric retailers will be happy to handle your custom order! Whether you purchase from their selection of fabrics or ship fabric off that you have previously purchased, they can have it sewn to your specifications! Whether you need draperies, chair covers, ottoman covers, sofa or bed pillow shams, duvet covers, bed caps, or entire bedding collections, custom sewing with every conceivable frill is a phone call away for example, flanged, knife-edge, or boxed style pillow shams, piping, railroading, etc.
If your style is casual and you want to entertain friends in your living room, consider a sectional sofa. The sectional is perfect for when you or your friends want to kick back and relax while having a great conversation or watching some TV. It is great for family time too. There are a couple ways to use a sectional. You can put it in the corner of the room, so you maximize your living space. This is great if you want to use your sofa while watching TV. Or, you can place it so that the back of the sofa splits the room in half, so to speak. That way, you create a cozy little area for conversation. If you do not have a television or fireplace in your living room, add a recliner or loveseat facing the couch. That helps further create the sociable atmosphere.
