The most important part of the sofa is the frame for the whole piece, which should be made of a kiln-dried hardwood such as maple, poplar, beach or oak instead of pine.
Soften a bold color, like this bright red, with a neutral color. The solid green and floral taupe pillows balance the bold colors without clashing. Coordinate different patterns with different shades of the same color for a colorful and unique touch to a basic couch.
While solid colors are easier to decorate with, patterned sofas don`t show wear as quickly. The most durable and practical material is leather, which wears in, not out; the longer you have leather, the more patina it gets, whereas a fabric, no matter how good, will become worn out.
To paint a fabric seat, you can use either a spray paint made for fabric or brush-on paints designed for that purpose. Again, let your creativity guide you to create a unique design.
The cushions are what really make a sofa comfortable. The least expensive option is high-resiliency foam, which compresses during use and comes back to its natural shape. For real luxury, goose-down filling is the most expensive option, but it doesn`t offer much support and needs to be fluffed up often. A good compromise between comfort and budget is an inner core of foam topped with cotton batting surrounded by a cover filled with goose down. The foam center provides support for the soft feathers.
A tight seat and tight back construction work well for this style because all the cushions are attached and don`t need to be fixed after each use. Just know that these cushions aren`t easily replaceable.
Do you have kids and pets? Slipcovers can be a relatively inexpensive way to extend the life of your new furniture. Just think, when the kids head off to college, you can whip off the slipcover and have a brand-new sofa!
Soft accent pillows and a warm throw are the perfect accessories to make a sofa extra-inviting. Mix and match different pillow patterns and colors to spice up your outdoor furniture.
