When choosing to make a big purchase like a living room sofa, it’s important you take some things into consideration. To help you, Modern Sofas is sharing some technical tips on how to choose a sofa that will last you a long time, from the frames and joinery to the type of material.
Frame: A sturdy frame means a long-lasting sofa so when buying a sofa, pick durable materials like oak, ash or beech instead of wood, plastic or metal.
Joinery: Don’t buy a sofa that’s held together solely by staples, glue or nails. Try to find out the technical description of the furniture piece.
Springs: Sit down on a corner of the sofa and feel the springs. They should be firm and close together. If the sofa has no springs or they are not good quality, the sofa will be uncomfortable and not worthy.
Fillings: You also need to pay attention when it comes to the filling of a sofa, namely the type of foam since the cheaper options usually flatten and deteriorate more quickly.
Textiles: Leather is a good investment thanks to its incredibly durability: a leather sofa will probably last at least as long as three fabric sofas, making it a great option if you have kids.
