Covering Your Cushions:The fabric that you choose for the upholstery slipcover and casings for your cushions will be the major style decision that you make. It will also be a major factor in deciding how long your new investment will last. Among the durable, natural fabrics that you can choose are cotton, wool, linen and leather. Among the synthetics, olefin is one of the most versatile fibers available. You can find olefin upholstery fabrics in weaves that mimic nearly any woven fabric - that are wash and wear easy when it comes to care. Take the extra trouble to make sure that your slipcovers and the covers for your cushions are removable so that they can be easily dry-cleaned or machine washed.
c-European sofa beds: These are the pinnacles of sleepers today. Real \"Made in Europe\" ones give you an excellent sleeper. To avoid cheap Chinese imitations is a must. The biggest exporter is Turkey. Pros: * Great sleeping and sitting quality: There are models with both excellent sleeping and sitting comfort. * Comes with storage: Most of the models come with an easy to access, spacious storage place. * Easy to use mechanism. Unlike the pull-out ones, their mechanisms are very easy to function. *Inner spring structure: Although there are models with foam cushions available, majority of them come with a durable orthopedic innerspring structure. *Built in Cushion: Unlike futons, you don't have to buy the frame and the cushion separately. They come with a built in mattress which doesn't slide under you. Cons: *Un-exchangeable cushion: When the cushion gets old, it is not possible to replace it. But for most of the consumers it shouldn't be a problem since European Sofa beds are very strongly built and even with everyday usage as a bed, they last for a decade. * Firm sitting and sleeping surface: For most Americans, not only sofa beds but all European made sofas are firm for their taste. It is a very relative concept and someone's \"firm\" is another one's \"Soft\". European sofa beds come in firm, mid-firm and soft models. Even if you are a \"soft\" crazy, there is still a chance for you to find a model for your taste. Most probably their \"soft\" model would be \"mid-firm\" for your taste..
Some sectional sofas have two couches, perhaps one regular and one with recliners. Or a recliner sofa and a sleeper sofa. Regardless of the types of sofas, there is almost always a corner piece that joins the two sofas together to form one unit. The corner comes in two forms, either curved or at a 90 degree angle. The curved sectional sofas usually look more comfy, the curved corner helping to form a continuous line. The 90 degree corner looks more polished and modern.
Besides sectional sofas with two forms of couches joined together with (or without) a corner piece, some sectionals have one long side and one short side. When there is a short side, it is often a recliner. This type of configuration works great if your room is a bit on the small side. But a recliner is not your only option, some sectional sofas have a chaise lounge along one side.
Got an old sofa that's still got years of hard wear left in it - but it's looking a little tired and outdated?

If you were smart enough to choose a sofa with a cushion back and seat, you can end up looking like you have a whole new couch by the time you're finished. Here's how to spiff up your old sofa with new upholstery and cushions.
