 The Framework

Though the market is inundated with sofas having steel  and metal frames, the all-time favorite is wooden ones and the credit goes to the durability of hard wood like Sheesham, Acacia, Teak and Mango.                                                 

Bold Colors

Wooden Sofas come in different bold colors and hence give you unbridled choice to mix and match it with the interiors of your living room. The colors—soft, bold, primary, warm, cool; the patterns—checks, plaids, stripes, tweeds, florals and the fabrics—wool, velvet, chenille, cotton, linen, faux leather, leather… the choices are humungous. Throw cushions on your fabric sofa matching the color of your interiors or contrasting the walls of your living room, let your creativity inspire the interior aesthetics of your home. The rugs, curtains, side tables, wall paint or wall paper, wall arts and the sofa upholstery are the vital elements to play around with  and create magic and  of course !since you are going to play the magician, you need to be well informed of the strategies to be employed while transforming your nest.                                       

Available Space and Size

Another relevant aspect is the size of your living room. Consider its dimensions before jumping in to buy a sofa. If, for instance, you live in a studio apartment then you need to consider how much of space you are planning to devote to the sofa. If you end up buying a large one, the space would look cluttered and congested, thereby impacting the entire interior of the place. You need to be clear to avoid later regrets. It would be wise to consider the practical aspects of the space available with the height, width and depth of the sofa before you finalize the purchase.

Away from Direct Sunlight

If you prefer placing your fabric upholstered sofa next to a window, then you have to ensure that it’s not exposed to direct sunlight. Excessive exposure to the sun may fade the color of the fabric.


The fabric used to upholster the sofa comes in various types. It would be beneficial to know the types.
