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.
Hattie Waters Sofa, 2018-02-22 18:31:45. More Comfortable Than Upholstery: Upholstery provides a thin barrier between those using the furniture and the structure of the cushion. Over time, the shape of the couch will change and the materials will break down. This leads to an uncomfortable, lumpy couch that no one wants to sit on. As leather sofas age, the material becomes more comfortable. Rather than breaking down, these sofas conform to body weight more readily. In fact, many owners note that their older couch feels nicer than it did when it was brand new.

Leather Looks Nicer: Though durability may be a hallmark of leather furniture, the material has a reputation for adding elegance and sophistication to a room. No matter what color dye is used, leather makes the room look nicer than a patterned upholstery. While leather may cost more than upholstered sofas, its durability and chic look make it well worth the cost.

If, your apartment is on higher floors in the building, you will have to consider the size of the elevator or stairwell in the building. Nothing can be worse than buying a sofa and then realizing that it cannot reach your tenth floor apartment. You have to think of the size of the room in which you are planning to keep the sofa set.

There is a tactile appeal with leather that is really second to none. If you have ever sat on a piece of furniture covered in leather you know what I am talking about. The smooth, soft feel is comforting and warm to the touch. There is just something about it that makes you feel like you are in the lap of luxury. Nothing scratchy, and no irritating feel.

The most obvious is a couch, a love seat and a chair set. Other options include a hide-a-bed or recliner instead of a traditional couch or chair. Another great option are sectional sofas. A sectional is composed of multiple sections (hence, \"sectional\") of furniture, that fit together to form one large piece of furniture. Let's take a look at the different pieces available, the purpose they serve and why a sectional may suit your life.

In other words, if the back as three pillow sections, use either one or three cushions on the seat base. Anything else will give the sofa an oddly unbalanced feeling.

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.
