One of the toughest decisions in color selection is whether the color will be light or dark. Again, this aspect will depend on the surroundings. You must select a shade that matches the floor. A wooden, dark flooring can make the sofa blend in or totally vanish. Keep in mind that sofas are made of fabrics that absorb the light - they are not shiny lamps.
Moreover, it is not at all easy to clean a curvy segmented sofa. If you do not vacuum it every three to four times in a week, it will get very dirty and would take a lot of your time and stamina to clean the whole sofa.
There are definitely other factors to consider, though, when picking a fabric based on durability. Most fabrics come with standard levels of durability across the board, based simply on what they are made out of. The most all-around durable materials are leather and micro-denier ("micro-fiber"). Leather is tough and easily vacuumed, wiped clean, and conditioned for long life. Micro-denier, made of 100% polyester, is extremely tightly woven, making it very difficult for dirt and/or liquids to penetrate its surface, as well as making it very difficult to tear, rip, or pill. Cotton, depending on the weave (canvas is the best!), is also very durable in terms of wear, fade, and pilling, however it tends to wrinkle and will absorb stains; a cotton-polyester blend is a great compromise to help avoid the wrinkling, and a stain treatment can make up for its absorbent properties. Wool, although usually very warm, is extremely resistant to pilling, fading, soil, and fading. A blend with polyester or rayon can make it more skin-friendly. Manufactured to imitate wool, acrylic fibers will not fade, soil, or wear easily, although less expensive versions will usually display a certain amount of pilling after some time of heavy use. Rayon can go either way - high quality rayon can be extremely durable, but be careful when looking for rayon at a very low price - it's likely to wrinkle and can sometimes absorb water stains. Other very durable fabrics include olefin, nylon, and vinyl; all very good choices for heavy use pieces of furniture.
Think about how many persons do you want to sit on the sofa. Then buy furniture that has the same number of cushions. For more than two people, buy a sofa with a long cushion, also called a bench cushion.
John Henry Belter John Henry Belter was originally a cabinet-maker from Germany who brought his knowledge of wood carving to other furnishings. His unique method of laminating thin layers of wood together and ornately carving them defined a generation of woodworkers in the mid-1800s. His trademark Victorian sofas have curvy, S-shaped backs whose exposed wood features elaborate designs of flowers, curlicues, fruit, and birds.
