b-Futons: May be this is the most widely known sleeper type. They are not called sofa beds since they don't look like a sofa at all. They come in metal or wood frames and their prices vary from 149 USD to well over a 1,000 USD. Pros: * Widely available. *Start from very reasonable prices. * Rich cushion and frame choices. You can get a spring, foam, wool, cotton or any other cushion. Cons: * They are Futons, not sofas. Not for the living room, good for back rooms only. * Good quality ones with inner spring mattress are expensive. You can get a better quality European Sofa bed with same or less price. * No storage space. *Cushion slides easily: This is may be this is the biggest problem with futons. The cushion just doesn't stay under you and you need to pull it up so often that it becomes a nuisance very soon.
A recent sofa set has not really changed in meaning for hundreds of years. It is for comfortable seating of two or more people. They are used in all parts of the world and can be finished in leather, cloth, vinyl or even cane or bamboo. It all depends on the needs, location, ideas and budget of the buyer. You can yet get it with a pullout bed. The sofa is the defining piece of furniture in the living room. Where placed, how long it is what colour it is and what type of material covered in can be a time consuming decision for many households.
The fabric of the sofa also plays a very important role in its selection. You have to decide whether your sofa will be used for formal occasions or will be used very regularly. Leather recliners can be great but may pinch your pockets slightly harder. If you have kids, the sofa will get some roughing up frequently. Children tend to drop food, juices and other junk on the sofa. The sofa, in such cases must be very simple and practical. It may have busy prints to hide the stains and dark colors to keep people from noticing the little \"accidents\", as the best detergents and dry cleaners may not be able to remove them completely.
Sofa has to be comfortable and should have armrests. The Arabic term \"Suffah\" gave us 'sofa.' A sofa is usually meant for two people.
You will also have to consider the comfort level you expect from your sofa set. Sofas may be very firm or very fluffy. The backside could be tight or fitted with removable pillows. A lot of people prefer pillowed sofas as they are very relaxing and comfortable. Other things to consider are the angle at which the back of the sofa is kept and the depth of the seat of the sofa. Some people like sofas that have very soft seats while others want a firm sofa seat. Only you will be able to decide the type that keeps you most comfortable.
