What determines a comfortable sofa

Check the frame, construction is more important than the sofa design. Look for solid steady frames made from durable materials i.e. Solid wood and metal with strong strapping.

Consider the cushions stuffing be it foam or feather and evaluate their unique comfort level. Low density foam is not a good option as it fails to support and they sag whereas high density foam is stiff and unconformable but can withstand the test of time. Feathers, however, can be shifted causing cushions to loose shape and eventually become very uncomfortable.  The best choice is to seek a combination of both. 

When looking at the fabric covering it should feel soft and non prickly. 

Back support is of the utmost importance when choosing your sofa, look out for structure that supports you back whilst you are sitting up.

The importance of the design is such that it should be a mix of angle, pitch and depth to create a comfortable seating position. Give yourself some time to become fully acquainted with the sofa of your choice.

Judging a Sofas quality

Remember what lies inside the corner sofa determines the quality of your corner sofa.

The frame, filling and seating support defines a well, comfortable sofa with an ability to retain shape and stability.

The frame should be made of Kiln-dried hardwood as the drying process enables it to retain its shape and stability.

Joints should be glued dowelled and screwed in tightly with reinforcing blocks for strength.

Seating support works together with frame and filling. A strong frame is the foundation of a good sofa.

The webbing laying across the seating and back provide the necessary support for cushioning and the webbing should be used together with a tensioner that secures the webbing to the frame.

Springs are preferred over webbing.

The choice of the filling in the filling of the cushions will determine how long the cushion will retain its shape and so provide the support needed.

The feet should be strong made of iron, wood or hard plastic.

A general rule is the deeper the seat depth the lower the seat height needs to be and the shorter the seat depth the higher the seat height needs to be. A seat height on sofas can vary with a typical range between 15 to 20 inches from the floor to the top of the seating cushion. The depth should be sufficient so the user can sit with his or her back upright against the back cushion without having to tilt backwards.

A comfortable armrest is an advantage for resting your arms when relaxing.
