Sofa has to be comfortable and should have armrests. The Arabic term \"Suffah\" gave us 'sofa.' A sofa is usually meant for two people.
Many an antique leather armchair, lamb's wool cushion or mohair chaise longue has fell victim to Do-It-Yourself upholstery cleaning. In an ideal world, we wouldn't make such a mess of things, but it's bound to happen. Think of the time you spilled Spaghetti Bolognese all over the carpet because you didn't want to miss X-Factor and there was no television in the dining room. A few simple home cleaning tips will go a long way to not ruining your furniture in the spirit of DIY upholstery cleaning.
The craziest color leather sofa I ever saw was blue and orange. Yikes! Some happy Boise State Bronco fan I guess. Leather can be dyed almost any color, but obviously the browns, blacks and tans are the most popular. These don't clash with most interiors as much as green, blue, red, orange, or some other bright color might. When I recently recovered my leather dining chairs I got swatches of all sorts of colors to consider. It was a fun process, but in the end I ended up opting for a classic dark brown.
As a rule, liquid spills, with the exception of red wine or coffee, are suitable for Do-It-Yourself cleaning. A household cleaning solution or upholstery shampoo will usually do the trick. Apply it as soon as possible after the spill, work it into the fabric, and use a damp rag to blot out the liquid. You can repeat this procedure as many times as is necessary to remove the stain and discolouration, changing your cloth as often as needs be in removing any dark patches.
You will also have to consider the comfort level you expect from your sofa set. Sofas may be very firm or very fluffy. The backside could be tight or fitted with removable pillows. A lot of people prefer pillowed sofas as they are very relaxing and comfortable. Other things to consider are the angle at which the back of the sofa is kept and the depth of the seat of the sofa. Some people like sofas that have very soft seats while others want a firm sofa seat. Only you will be able to decide the type that keeps you most comfortable.
