Guide to Sofa Selections
The sofa size is important for where it will end up and the spaces it will go through to get there.
Key things to take note:
- Ease of delivery: make sure either the depth, width or height of the sofa is smaller than the width of your door
- Right size: the sofa should not overwhelm the room and should fit the number of people you plan to accommodate if space allows
How will the sofa be used have a major say on the sofa's size, shape and comfort level.
Consider the following:
- Who will be spending the most time on it?
- Do you use the sofa to work, study or watch TV more?
- Do you plan to sleep on the sofa?
Upholstery materials is closely related to a sofa's ease of maintenance, comfort and durability
Key upholstery types:
- Leather: durable and easy to clean, especially full grain and top grain leathers
- Natural fibers: more breathable and soft but can easily soak up stains and spills
- Synthethic fibers: more durable and shrinks less after wash compared to natural fibers
- Pet friendly fabric: has tight weave that makes it scratch resistant against pets
- Stain & water resistance fabrics: ideal for families with kids and frequent spillers
Apart from matching your home's style, colours also affect the type of maintenance required.
- Darker colours: dusts are more obvious, regular wiping or vacuuming is required
- Lighter colours: stains are more obvious, greater efforts for stain removal is required
The sofa seat's dimension and firmness need to match your lifestyle.
General rule of thumb:
- Loungers: deep seats (>= 60cm) with medium to medium soft seat cushion
- Traditionalists: standard depth (<60cm) seats with medium to medium firm seat cushion
Height of sofa legs can greatly impact how it blends in with the room.
- High sofa legs: useful in small spaces, seeing more floor space gives illusion of a larger room
- Low sofa legs: make the sofa appear more like part of the architecture of the room
Thickness and height of arms have a major impact on overall style and comfort.
- Arm height: low arms are ideal for resting your head, high arms provide more support when you lounge or sit on the sofa
- Arm thickness: thin arms provide more seating space, thick arms can be used to place your coffee cup or laptop

- Use of premium materials for leather, fabric, wood and springs can cost 5 times more than cheap materials
2 - Construction and craftsmanship
- Sofas crafted with attention to detail takes longer to build leading to higher manpower costs
