Buying sofas and suites will most likely be one of the biggest and most expensive investments you will have to make in your life, not counting your home and vehicles, so it is quite sensible to get the furniture that will endure good usage and still seem beautiful after many years of use. To be honest, most people don’t know too much about sofa construction and exactly what are the differences between well made pieces and those that are poorly constructed, but the moment you know what to search for, upholstery buying will be a snap! You simply have to follow a couple of rules:
You should know that colour and style of the sofa or a sofa bed for sale might just be the first two things people notice, but it is what lies beneath the fabric is what really matters. Top quality frames are made from kiln-dried hardwood with double- or triple-dowelled joints that are corner-blocked, glued and screwed. All this provides the best possible support structure for your leather corner suite.
But not only the frame is important - the spring system is also just as important. It should provide firm support, but also offer enough comfort. Search for leather corner sofas with coil springs that are attached to the frame by hand in at least eight places so that the support is as homogeneous as possible.
The rear of a corner suite does not need that much support, so it is totally acceptable if the back has sinuous springs in a zigzag order. As long as sinuous springs are not within the seat, you can think of the piece as well built.
The cushions are something to consider as well before buying 3 piece suites. Many different constructions and fillers for cushions are available, so it is imperative to know what is best for you, and is also within your family budget. Down filling is the most expensive but also the best because it creates a loose, fluffy cushion. High-density foam is yet another option. This material is very good as well because of the comfort it provides while giving you a long lasting support at the same time.
