Susie Allen. Sofa. December 24th , 2017.
The popular furniture in a home is everyone's choice. Most person, after thinking for just a moment, agree on sofas. The reason is quite clear.. Sofas are just way too restful for relaxing and lounging about. You can watch TV on them, eat on them, sleep on them, talk on them and just about anything else you can imagine of on them.
Many an antique leather armchair, lamb's wool cushion or mohair chaise longue has fell victim to Do-It-Yourself upholstery cleaning. In an ideal world, we wouldn't make such a mess of things, but it's bound to happen. Think of the time you spilled Spaghetti Bolognese all over the carpet because you didn't want to miss X-Factor and there was no television in the dining room. A few simple home cleaning tips will go a long way to not ruining your furniture in the spirit of DIY upholstery cleaning.
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.
The craziest color leather sofa I ever saw was blue and orange. Yikes! Some happy Boise State Bronco fan I guess. Leather can be dyed almost any color, but obviously the browns, blacks and tans are the most popular. These don't clash with most interiors as much as green, blue, red, orange, or some other bright color might. When I recently recovered my leather dining chairs I got swatches of all sorts of colors to consider. It was a fun process, but in the end I ended up opting for a classic dark brown.
Sometimes, instead of a traditional couch, a recliner couch is used for the primary piece of the sectional. It is interesting, a couch is normally designed to sit three people, but in our family, when we watch a movie together, one person will call the couch and then lay down on it. Sometimes a younger sibling will get \"permission\" to curl up at the other end or will lean on their older brother or sister. This usually works fairly well, but three people NEVER sit on the couch to watch TV. A recliner couch helps solve this problem. With a recliner on one end of the couch, one person can fully lay back and relax and leave plenty of room for others. Some recliner couches will have a couple of recliners. Some sectional sofas will even have a small pull-down arm rest between the two recliners that have cup holders in them to hold your drink.
