With the holidays just around the corner, and everyone coming to the bash, wouldn't it be nice to have new furniture for your guests to sit on?
Might I suggest a few things to keep in mind while you shop for the new. Remember, every type of sitting is done on the new sofa and love. With that in mind you might want to consider some safety, and protection for the fabric and frame.
Lets see, the frame. The best frames to give you the longest life are hardwood frames that have been glued, reinforced corners, and screwed or tacked at all seams. There are products out in the market place that have pressboard and particle board frames, these tend to weaken quicker and definitely are heavier when moved, ( not suggested to do it weakens corners ).
The second thing to make sure you consider is a fabric protection against spills and stains. Make sure that you ask about the protection for the fabric that you are going to buy, and if it is a special ordered item this can be a real important part of the decision making.
Then when you have chosen the sofa and love, don't forget the chair and ottoman that match. Remember too, ask about the warranty and how long it lasts?
