When you choose a fabric sofa and are thinking of buying it you must consider a few factors before you make the final purchase. Try the sofa out in the store to get to know how it feels; if you don’t like it there, then don’t buy it assuming you will start liking it later because that usually never happens and then you will have to deal with trying to exchange or return it.
Check the fabric closely, see if it’s comfortable, and the stitching is done properly. Inspect if the fabrics design is united at the point where the edges meet. If the fabric is striped, has plaids, or huge prints, then you will have to concentrate even more to figure out if they are aligned and how exactly will you place the cushions on them and arrange them in the sitting area.
Make sure you check out the workmanship of the sofa so you don’t find mistakes or problems in it later. It’s always better to investigate as much as possible before purchasing because later usually nothing can be done unless the company offers returns, which most furniture store don’t. Also, find out about the interior construction of the sofa. Make sure that you also check out the structure of the sofa because the size can make a huge difference. You can easily get the fabric changed for a small fee, but you can’t change the size or shape of the furniture.
Before you decide to purchase, also find out what all will come along with the sofa, for example are the cushions included in the price or are they separate? Also get some information about the foam used in the seats and cushions to make sure the best material is used and that it’s comfortable, which is the main goal of any seating sofa.
