Got an old sofa that's still got years of hard wear left in it - but it's looking a little tired and outdated?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 your old sofa frame is still serviceable, but the upholstery is showing a little wear and tear, updating it could be just a matter of a few yards of fabric and some comfy new cushions. 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.
A leather sofa is affordable. Beginning models are similarly priced to upholstered couches and go up from there, but they tend to last much longer. Depending on how you look at it, it could be argued that a leather sofa is actually less expensive over time than other options. You can find a basic leather love seat for under a thousand dollars. Of course, you can spend much more. A large sectional that includes love seat, sofa, and maybe a recliner or two can be thousands. From my experiences selling furniture I can say that the idea of a leather sofa is something many people are attached to, but tend to think of as too expensive. Most are pleasantly surprised when they learn the real benefit and value of leather.
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.
How Many Cushions? Traditional styles use two or three cushions for both seat and back. If you're just replacing the seat cushions, you have a few choices. If the back of the sofa is one piece - without attached or loose pillow-backs - you can use as many seat cushions as you want. One full length seat cushion lends a sleek, modern look to an older style. Just use the same fabric as you use for the sofa slipcover to make a cover for the cushion. If you like a more traditional feel, use two or three evenly sized cushions on the seating platform.
The Sienna sectional is another piece which looks so extremely comfortable. The minute you see it you'll want to try it out. One side of the sectional is a chaise which is perfect for relaxing in. The heavy cushioning is what makes this so comfortable. There is a 4- and 5-piece sectional available, and they are priced at $3, 299 to $3, 799.
