Got an old sofa that's still got years of hard wear left in it - but it's looking a little tired and outdated? If your old sofa frame is still serviceable, but the upholstery is showing a little wear and tear, updating it could be just a matter of a few yards of fabric and some comfy new cushions. If you were smart enough to choose a sofa with a cushion back and seat, you can end up looking like you have a whole new couch by the time you're finished. Here's how to spiff up your old sofa with new upholstery and cushions.
The first thing about a leather sofa that sets it above and apart from other types of sofas is its inherent durability. Leather itself is just plain tough. Whether it's cow hide, alligator, shark, or some other exotic hide, the resulting leather is simply going to last for years and years. It takes a real beating and just gets more charming as a result. The natural texture and coloration of leather lends itself to longevity because it doesn't show normal use as a defect. Rather, any occasional sign of wear just adds to the charm. This is a generalized statement and, of course, there are exceptions. Some leather is very smooth and will show blemishes. A leather sofa isn't immune to wear and tear, but it does excel what other fabric options will do.
Sofas, loveseats, and sofa sets all fall under the generalcategory of couch, which is derived from the Old French word \"couche\" plainly meaning \"sleep,\" or \"coucher\" \"to lie down.\" Although technically, a sofa loveseat set is for sitting up while a couch can be used for lying down.
The last piece you see with some sectional sofas are large ottomans. Since my experience shows that most people like to stretch out on a sofa, an ottoman allows this without taking up any more room on the sofa itself. This is a great way to expand the sitting space to seat more people.
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.
