Advantages and Disadvantages of a Convertible Sofa Bed

Perhaps, a lot of people already heard of the very popular convertible sofa beds. These beds have become the solution for people who live in a small house and for college students who stay in tiny apartment units and dormitories. Such beds are really well known because of the dual function they offer. And ever since they first come out in the market, a lot of people have tried and purchased one. However, not many people are aware of the advantages and disadvantages of owning a convertible sofa bed.

First of all, a convertible sofa bed is indeed a very useful piece of furniture. It is cool and functional. Obviously, as its name implies, it may be used both as a sofa and a bed. It is very ideal for a small space because its owner does not have to buy a separate sofa and bed. This sits around just like any ordinary sofa during the day. But when night time comes and its owner has to sleep, he just needs to move the throw pillows aside and pull the folded mattress toward him. It is really very simple and easy to set up. And in addition, they are very helpful whenever a visitor comes and there is no extra bed in the house; or when the homeowner does not want to spend extra time in preparing another bed. After all, such sleepovers are infrequent.

There are also ones with stain resistant fabrics. Most of them are made of durable materials and they may fit through any doorway size. However, a convertible sofa bed is typically very heavy. A lot of people complain that cannot be easily moved and transferred from one location to another. Some would not fit in narrow stairs, and some are just very uncomfortable to sleep on. Nevertheless, not all of them are heavy. In fact, there are several lightweight models. Moreover, there are sofa beds with really unique styles.

Why Do so Many Martial Artists with Various Backgrounds and Careers Practice Chi Kung?
Why do so many martial artists with various backgrounds and careers practice Chi Kung?I almost missed this one. Some people just do not like to admit they believe even when they try to convince themselves they do not or do not want to. Others are just ignorant. The Master I studied Yi Chuan under send me flying through the air slamming onto his sofa - I trained privately in his home. My feet did not touch the floor and the time from when I was standing in front of him to me landing sitting on the sofa was very fast. Next thing I knew I was sitting.

You can maybe add some plants that come down from the mantel of the fireplace or something that takes away from the bricks. You can also drape some fabric from the ceiling down the back of the sofa to kind of cover the brick or maybe even like a shoshi screen or something like that. Its hard to picture it without looking but hopefully you will get some good ideas from these YA people. Good Luck— — — — — —Tips From Professional Movers - How To Hoist A SofaBefore I get anywhere with today's blog - let me start by saying one thing; hoisting a sofa is a very challenging and risky maneuver. We highly recommend having professional movers come in to do this hoist. There is a good chance of damaging your furniture, house, or causing injury. This is simply a guide that will help show you what to do and help you see the proper way to perform a sofa hoist. 1. Thoroughly Wrap The Sofa With Furniture Pads and Shrink Wrap Performing a hoist can put a lot of stress on your furniture. By properly wrapping it, you will help to prevent damages, such as damage from the straps or rubbing against a wall or railing. We recommend using multiple pads to cover the sofa, taping them in place, and then covering everything with stretch wrap. 2. Find The Best Landings For The Hoist Try to find a spot with as few obstacles as possible. You do not want to have to hoist your sofa through a bush or when it could potentially hit a window. The optimal spot for a hoist would be onto a deck balcony that sticks out from the house, so that it would not be right up against the house. You want the moving strap to wrap entirely around the couch seat and back. The arm of the sofa should make it so that you can tighten the loop and it will stay in place. Keep it very tight. If you have to keep the sofa pulled out to prevent rubbing against a window or side of the house, you should create a second loop at the bottom of the couch. 4. Use Hoisting Straps Around Your Loops This is why you need to make sure your loop is very tight. If it is loose, it could come free from the couch, dropping the sofa below. Tie your strap around the loop so that it is very tight and secure. If you are using a second loop to pull it out from the house, make sure it is tight and secure as well. 5. Up, Up, and Away! Starting with the couch resting on it's arm (so it is standing tall) - you should have at least two people at the bottom lifting it up as high as they can. One person at the top can pull the hoisting strap as the sofa rises. If you use a second strap to pull it away from the house, only pull it as tight as it needs to keep it off the house - you do not want to pull the sofa back down! Once the sofa is fully in the air, the people on the ground can run upstairs to help carry the sofa over the balcony or railing.
Need Help Finding Kitchen Items and Sofa?
The daybed and the island appear custom made to me. Any of the kitchen redesigners should be able to replicate the island without difficulty. The "tiles" on the floor are flagstone and any slab or rock yard has them, but to use on subflooring you need them guaged so that they all lay even. You really should go to a granite yard to look at the slabs because every yard calls their granite colors by something different with a few exceptions that are industry wide (like absolute black granite because it comes from only one mine in India)1. dog urine on my sofa?I just bought this product last week. It takes EVERYTHING out. It's called Folex and you can find it at Walmart. It's cheap too2. Is my sofa ruined? Help!?!?Just in case scratch it all over. Apply the oil to make it match. This is creativity. You just might like the new look3. Bernhardt sofa back support fallen off internally. Springs OK. Any ideas how to fix the sofa?Well, hubby fixed ours by opening it up, finding the broken piece and replacing it with fresh wood and screws and like the guy earlier stated, problem solve--then he used his staple gun to put the upholstery back in place. Worked quite well and looked professional4. Is buying a sofa from Walmart a good idea?Well even Target does not sell quality furniture. We bought a 5 piece dining room table a year ago and it's scratched up. We do not use it daily, it definitely was not worth $225 and likely can not sell it. I would suggest Garage Sale, Estate Sales, Dock 86, Secondhand shops, or Slumberland had a pretty decent sale on the July 4th, I am sure they will have a great sales weekend Labor Day, We bought a chocolate chenille couch for $580 normally $900. Free Delievry.5. how can i get rid of an unwanted sofa?Place it for free on the Craiglist in the free items section. Depending on where you live someone will be there in a snap to pick it up. If you have a digital camera take pictures also and upload them on the listing. Good Luck.6. How can I save my sofa?Get a strong piece of plywood and cover it with foam batting and stick it underneath the couch cushions. It should give enough support until you can replace it. Congrats on the new home.7. how to get candle wax out of upholstry [ sofa ] ?ummm...sarah has a point...but with something that is as fragile as micro-fiber I think personally I would allow the wax to completely harden and pull up as many pieces as I could as carefully as I could . Just so you do not over stretch the fabirc and cause raised spots. you could gently scrape away the rest. If there is still some in the couch...look up the manufacturers recommendations with water. If its okay with water, then use an ice cube to freeze more of it off. Or, you could even just put the ice in a ziplock bag and just do it that way. I would not take an iron to the couch...microfiber is a bit too satin-y for that. Just work slowly and carefully...and keep at it. Good luck.8. How to make Sofa seats "higher"?You could raise the sofa by placing concrete blocks under all 4 corners. Then get some boards & cover them in fabric or paint them or stain them & place them like a "skirt" under the 3 sides of the sofa. You could even give it an industrial look by using metal sheets or gridwork. As for the cushions, you do not say if they are attached or loose. If they are loose, hopefully they are zippered. In which case you will go to a fabric store & buy some dacron sheets & wrap the cushions with the sheets using a spray glue so it does not shift. Use a dry cleaning bag over the cushion to get it to slide easily back into the cover. Using dacron will probably be a lot less expensive than buying new foam cores, but look into that also - just find an upholstery outlet in your area. You can also just put boards under your cushions, but that will just feel firm, not more comfortable. If your cushions are attached there is not much you can do. You can always look for a sofa on craigslist, but just be sure that you disinfect it.
Buying Distressed Leather Sofas: How to Save Big
Buying Distressed Leather Sofas: Sofas In TroubleWhen doing the research for this aged furniture article, several sites popped up that explained what distressed leather is and how it's created. Some of them were so funny that they just had to go into this piece - at least for the entertainment factor they provide if not the information. One of the definitions out there is that it "has been scratched or rubbed or treated in some way to achieve a stylish effect". Like Sylvester after a visit to the cat salon Ooh, bad putty-tat! Another is "dyed with one color over another so as to create an artificially aged effect. Hey now they're talking about Grandma's new do - except for the 'artificially' part. Yet another one, states that it is "the simulated effect of age and wear". So now Steven Tyler is in on it But that's enough with the wordplay. Now to actually call it like it is, which is 'leather that has been artificially given an old and worn out look without any loss of integrity to the actual material itself'. Ah, now isn't that refreshingly un-spoofableDistressed Leather Sofas: Naturally Aged FurnitureBefore we run out of column space (or pixel points, as the case may be), let's get to the real point of this article. If you're out to buy a pre-distressed leather sofa to give your living room that perfect 'old money' look, there are some great places to look for them. Antique shops should be your first port of call. Naturally aged leather is the most authentic-looking kind. Even a 30 or 40 year-old leather and mahogany sofa will be sufficiently worn to give the desired effect. If older you're lucky, but you should expect to pay high four-figure or even five-figure sums for such works of art. These pieces will usually have been restored so no further treatment will be needed.Distressed Leather Sofas: Artificially Distressed FurnitureOn the other hand, if you're thinking of aging the pristine leather sofa that you just bought last month, here are a few methods you can choose from. The first way is to apply water liberally on the leather using a dishcloth or a bath sponge. Once you've done this, quickly blow-dry the leather on high heat, until you see the wrinkles and cracks start to appear. That's the first aging. If you want an even older look, do it again. Another painstaking way to distress your sofa leather is to apply either rubbing alcohol or leather balm, which is an alcohol-based microcrystalline wax, on normal quick-wear areas like the seat and arms, and then quickly and firmly brush it off with a rag. This will give your leather that dark oily worn looks that is typical of naturally worn leather. If you're going for a severely distressed look, then gently rubbing it with 240 grit sandpaper (very fine abrasive particles) should give you that bleached-in-the-sun look. You can also use wire brushes to achieve a worn effect.Distress-It-Yourself: D-I-Y WarningsThe risk of distressing your own leather sofa is that you might overdo it, and it could end up looking like it should be left out on the curb for someone to take away. Whatever method you use, do it on a small test area, like the lower part of the back of the sofa, to see if you like the effect. Many distressing methods are irreversible so when you work with sandpaper or wire brushes you want to start gently and go deeper once you're confident that it's shaping up to be what you expect. If all else fails and you think the end effect is dismal, you can use a leather conditioner to try and get it back to the way it was. However, that's not guaranteed.Distressed Leather Sofas: Buying Them Pre-DistressedIf you don't really want to go through the hassle of either Indiana Jones-ing through the neighborhood antique stores, or breaking your back to beat up a perfectly good leather sofa, then you're probably better off buying one that's been distressed already. There are some great furniture stores that sell distressed leather sofas, but remember, distressed leather is usually sold at a premium because of the additional effort in giving it that look. A leather sofa normally sold at around $2000 can be sold distressed for as much as $3500. Now that's distressing.

I have two great sleepover games, for a larger (at least five) people 1: Dark sofa Have everyone except one person sit on a sofa. That one person (we will call her Bobbi) turns off the lights and stands in fromt of the sofa with her back to the sofa. She says "Shuffle!" and everyone on the sofa changes their order, so she does not know that order they are in. Then she asks them questions, with her back still turned to the sofa, referring to the people as Person #1, Person #2, etc. When Bobbi knows who it is, she says their name and they sit down. The numbers of the sofa people do not change. The number of questions Bobbi gets to ask is three times the number of sofa people. When the sofa people answer, they try to disguise their voice to make it harder for Bobbi. The last person gets to be the next Bobbi, so to speak. 2. Murder in the dark Get some little sheets of paper. Write Murderer on one, Detective on one, and Victim on all of the others so each person playing can have one. Crinkle them up and put them in a hat or something. Have everyone pick one. No one can announce what they got, except for the detective. Everyone except the detective sits cross-legged in a circle. The detective goes out of the room or turns her back and turns the light off (play it at night, when the room is pitch black, or it wo not work). While the lights are off, everyone except the murderer closes their eyes the murderer pinches someone else's (not her own) knee. That victim screams and the detective waits a second or two, to let the murderer get back in position, then turns on the light and asks the victim who they think the murderer is. The victim tells them, and the whole process then repeats. After there have been five murders total (the victims can not die, and someone can be murdered multiple times) the detective has to guess who the murderer is, based on his knowledge of the claims made by victim. To play again, shuffle the papers and pick them out again, and if the detective is the same person, shuffle again.

You usually have no option but to be organized when it comes to the various household items and furniture you might have so that your living space remains habitable. One of the most important considerations, when you live in such a small space, is the type of bed to have since you do not want one that takes up too much space. What are the best beds for a studio apartment? There are a variety of beds that are ideal for small spaces such as studio apartments. A Murphy bed may look like a cabinet, but it can be folded down during bedtime, and when you wake up, you can store it vertically against the wall. A sleeper sofa is just as convenient since it can serve as a seating area during the day and a bed at night. You can also go for loft beds where you have a variety of options, or a twin bed if you do not share a bed with anyone. If you have a roommate, a convertible sofa bunk bed will save you from having to share sleeping space. When you live in a studio apartment, you never want your bed to take up too much space. In addition to limiting your movement and comfort, an oversized bed will also take up the space that you would have otherwise used for storage. Here are some of the best beds for a studio apartment. A Murphy bed, sometimes known as a wall bed, is well-known for its ability to fold up vertically against a wall when it is not in use, effectively clearing up floor space. When you want to sleep or lounge in bed, you can fold easily fold it down. Raising and lowering a Murphy bed is easy on your back due to the spring-loaded mechanisms that allow for easy opening and closing. These mechanisms are additionally counterbalanced to keep your bed from falling without warning. You do not have to worry about your bedding and pillows remaining in place when you close up a Murphy bed since it usually comes with a Velcro strap system that holds everything together when it is in a vertical position. Murphy beds are comfortable to sleep on since you do not need any folding mattresses, and you have the option to use an appropriately sized coil-spring mattress of your own. If you need some floor space, then a loft bed is the way to go. There are several different options when it comes to this type of bed: • Basic loft bed - This is basically an elevated bed that has nothing underneath it. This open space can serve as extra storage space or you can leave it empty to make your studio unit seem more spacious. • Twin over full loft bed - Just as the name suggests, a twin over a full loft bed comprises of a twin bed over a loft one. This type of bed is a great option if you have a roommate since it allows each one of you a separate sleeping area. • Study design loft bed - A study design loft bed comes with a loft platform where you can place your workstation beneath the bed. Some have shelves where you can store your school or work items while others come with a fully equipped built-in desk, shelving, and ample space for study/work. • Loft bed with dresser - This loft bed includes a sleeping area and a dresser beneath it which has shelves where you can store clothes and other belongings to save space. If your sleeping area can barely fit a bed as well as a set of drawers, consider getting a Captain's bed. This versatile bed can also be used as a storage unit and save you some much-needed space. They feature a frame with drawers underneath it where you can store your belongings and consequently achieve a neater sleeping area. If your studio apartment is particularly small, consider going for a sleeper sofa. You can keep this versatile piece of furniture in your living area and use it a sitting area during the day or when you have people over, and then simply sleep on the in-built mattress at night. There are many types of sofa sleepers to choose from, but make sure you go for one that is of high quality and has a comfortable mattress. As the name suggests, a storage bed comes with space underneath it where you can store your clothes, shoes, and any other belongings you may have. The storage space is divided into compartments, and all you have to do to access them is to lift your mattress. Sofa beds have become popular over the years with tenants trying to save space, but now you can have a sofa that can be used as a bunk bed as well. It has a ladder to help you get to the top bunk and it also incorporates a safety barrier system that keeps you secure even when you roll over in bed. This is a great option for tenants who live with a roommate. Instead of having storage under your bed, why not have a bed that can slide under the floor? To achieve this, use a raised platform in your sleeping area and have the bed on casters set on wheels so that you can effortlessly roll your bed under the platform when it is not in use. You can use the platform as your home office or study area, which allows you to keep this space intact instead of having to constantly rearrange everything when you go to bed. Instead of a full bed, opt to go for a twin bed. While you might be hesitant about it at first, this type of bed occupies less space, and you can put in one corner of the apartment and not have to worry about it overcrowding your small space. It is most comfortable when just one person is sleeping in it, but it is not hard for two people to squeeze in. A canopy may seem like an unlikely choice for a studio apartment, but it may just what you need. Due to its added height, a canopy bed automatically pulls your focus upwards and generally makes the ceiling seem higher and the room bigger. It also outlines the sleeping area in the same way that a well-done paint job or a strategically place artwork would do. This is another unlikely pick for a studio unit, but it is perfect for when you need to fit your bed along the length of a wall. The stylish curled-over bed head and foot make a sleigh bed look intentionally placed, which in turn makes your living space feel extra cozy. If the ceiling of your studio apartment is not high enough for a loft bed, consider getting a platform bed. This type of bed will make your room seem bigger since it is so close to the floor and does not take up too much space. A regular bed usually takes up a lot of space that would otherwise be used as storage. An elevated bed is a great option since the bed is on a raised platform, leaving plenty of space underneath it for storage. When you lift the bed, the space under it is big enough for you to walk under it, so if you do not mind a miniature closet beneath your bed, go for this type of bed. A trundle/truckle bed is a standard bed on wheels that can be rolled under a larger bed, sort of like an extension. This type of bed saves you plenty of floor space, and the extra bed can serve as a bed for a guest or a roommate. What should I look for in a studio apartment? • Vertical space - You will want plenty of vertical space in a studio apartment since the horizontal space is going to be limited. When you have high ceilings, your apartment will automatically appear larger than it actually is and you will also have extra storage space. • Natural light - A brighter room always seems larger. Ensure that there are plenty of appropriately-sized windows facing the direction of sunlight in a studio unit. • Full-sized appliances - Just because a studio is small does not mean the appliances should be mini-sized as well. Ensure that the refrigerator, stove, and any other appliances that may be provided are normal-sized. • Livable space - Although a studio apartment is small, you should feel comfortable enough to live in it.

Real Leather=cow Skin for Sofas?
Where Are Dfs Sofas Made1. What advice would you give to someone who is moving to Santa Rosa, CA?Do not . It's a nice place but has it's share of drawbacks. Income is pretty low and current rent on a very small 2br/1ba is $2200, the house for sale around the corner is less than 1500sf and not what I would call remodeled but is listed at $565k. If you can afford that you will be fine. Many people are renting sofas, floor space, even tent space and sometimes sharing space with a large number of people. This area is pretty liberal and is very ethnically diverse2. how do i get rid of itching due to dust accumulated in sofas, old books etc.?As for old books I have no foolproof method of getting rid of the mites but I did once iron out the pages of an old book that interested me before I started reading it . I managed to finish reading it without as much as a sneeze.3. do domestic cats scratch leather settees (sofas).?I have leather furniture but I've never caught my cat scratching it but you never know what each cat will do. As for declawing, do not even think about it. It's the worst thing you can do to a cat. Firespider says she loves animals and that spaying and neutering is cruel but she's for declawing? What if your cat was to sneak out and get lost and then get into a fight with another animal? It would not be able to even climb up a tree. The only thing "bad" that would happen if it was spayed/neutered is that it would not get any action. ;o)4. Is there such a thing as third-hand smoke?yes... its when you smoke then the smoke and toxins linger on sofas, carpets, clothing, etc.... and are released. it can make you addicted even if you do not smoke!!!! It's new and weird though from what I have heard.5. If you have dark blue sofas what color is best for the walls?Use a clean taupe colour or something neutral. Then whatever colour you use, find some cushions of throws in a similar colour. This will continue the flow. As for flooring...pick that first! Always work from the floor up. Laminate flooring is an excellent choice as there are many different colours and it's easy enough to do yourself to save a few $$. If you are after a natural product, have a look at bamboo. Great product, great look and renewable.6. How many sofas have you been through since you've had children?I am in shock! Zorro actually answered for real! Or else he is slipping and thought that was a joke answer! Great answer Zorro! As a parent of kids with lots of pets, getting one off Craigslist every so often is great advice! I am currently looking for an easy chair there! We go through chairs more than sofas. We can not keep from breaking recliners! The handles break off, or they wo not tuck in anymore. Sofa beds are bad too. The metal starts poking though and they sag. Get something ugly and cover it with a blanket! We start off with good intentions, and "no eating on the new sofa" but we soon lapse into old habits. The dogs are banned for a while too, but soon are up on them with such sad, confused eyes, we let them stay! Kids are tough on furniture. Kids are tough on anything. Light switches, TV buttons... they push them on and off, on and off, and they stop working. I find that on chairs and sofas their little shoes end in the middle of the cushions, so there is wear halfway across. What Zorro said about furniture is how I feel about gardens and dogs. You can have a nice garden, or you can have dogs. I prefer dogs!7. Do they make slipcovers for the curved, sectional sofas?i hear ya me too8. what do you think about lazy boy's sofas?They are a lot better than they were years ago as they now have some designers working for them - Todd Oldham I believe is their best one. A friend bought one - it was expensive - and frankly it's really ugly too. And it broke as soon as it arrived.
How to Decorate Around a Mirror Over the Sofa
How to Decorate Around a Mirror Over the SofaMirrors play an important role in room design. A large mirror opens up a small space by making the room look larger. Mirrors of any size increase the apparent light in a room by reflecting light back into the room. When placed strategically behind a light source, mirrors illuminate areas that were formerly in the shadows. In addition, well-placed mirrors increase the decorating impact of focal points by making them visible from different angles. Mirrors reflect light. Take advantage of a mirror's reflecting ability to brighten the room by placing a pair of wall sconces on either side of the mirror behind the couch. Adjust swing-arm lamps so the mirror reflects light where you need it most. If the mirror is too stark and plain, swing the lamps in front of the mirror, breaking the outline of the mirror and softening its rectangular effect. Use a colored or beaded shade on your sconces to double the color impact on the room. To soften the impact of a large mirror, you can give it the feel of a window by adding curtains. Install a curtain rod over the mirror extending a foot beyond each side. If your mirror is shorter than your sofa, consider running the curtain rod a foot past each side of your sofa and hanging long, floor-length drapes to either side. Do not forget to add a valance that will hang low enough to cover the top edge of the mirror, completing the window feeling. If the mirror is a bit worn, consider adding a set of sheers or open lace panels to close completely over the mirror. Coordinate the curtains with the other windows in the room to give it a finished look. Run a narrow shelf under the full length of the mirror and place decorative items on it as you would a mantle over a fireplace. Before you consider this option, check that your couch is deep enough and the mirror is high enough to allow people to sit on the couch without hitting their head on the shelf. Decorative items that work especially well in front of mirrors are translucent bottles in various colors, tall candles and silk flowers, any of which would make good use of the mirror's reflected light. Rather than decorate on the wall next to a sofa mirror, place tall objects as side dressings to the sofa. Tall artificial trees, tall floor lamps, or large table lamps placed on side tables next to the couch will visually frame the mirror. Side dressings work best if your mirror has a decorative frame that you do not want to obscure. Because you do not have to install anything when decorating with floor and table lamps, changing the scenery is fast and painless. A mirror with pictures on each side is quite attractive. In a sense, you can create a picture wall with mirror in middle using photos from your favorite family adventures. Add framed pictures from any graduations, weddings or birthday celebrations. You can keep the photos symmetrical on either side, or hang them around the mirror forming a type of border.— — — — — —What is the color of a mirror?the color of the light being reflected off of it— — — — — —Mirror PondMirror Pond is an impoundment of the Deschutes River in Bend, in the U.S. state of Oregon. It is between Pacific Power's Bend Hydro dam and the Colorado dam, between RM 166 and 167. The pond is flanked by Drake, Harmon, Pageant, Brooks, Columbia, Miller's Landing, and McKay parks, as well as a number of buildings such as Pine Tavern and private homes. Some people mistakenly consider the Galveston (Tumalo) bridge the upper boundary of Mirror Pond; others call the portion of the lake between Galveston bridge and the Colorado dam "upper Mirror Pond".— — — — — —Should I believe the mirror or the picture?Go with the mirror. Taking better pics can take some time to perfect. Use your eyes to communicate to the camera and everything else will follow. Smile with confidence, but make sure it shows in your eyes first and foremost.— — — — — —Mirror or camera? Which one should i trust?omggg i feel the same way. some how in pics my face looks blotchy and my nose looks sharp and my eyes are dull. when i look in the mirror (usually) i have a nice clear complexion, sparkling eyes, and just overall pretty. i would say that you can not completely trust either, because the 3-D and real version of you is diff then a reflection or a frame captured my a camera. i would say the mirror is more reliable though

Which Side of a Sofa Is Healthier to Sit On?
Which side of a sofa is healthier to sit on?I was involved with the annual China International Furniture Fair held in the cavernous Canton Fair Complex on Pazhou Island Guangzhou. One of my Chinese clients was a sofa manufacturer, they make only sofa. All types.The companyu2019s pavilion in the exhibition was designed by us. I brushed aside the owneru2019s print layout of his exhibition booths and persuaded him to implement mine - which was essentially an attempt to u2018answeru2019 your question.Which side of a sofa is healthier to sit on?The sofa is a folly. An impractical piece of furniture that often holds a centrestage position in the living room. It occupies prominent space. It is neither a chair nor a bed. Itu2019s in between. You sit, eat, lounge and sleep on it. And more. Our concept for the client called for a bevy of girls (English-major Chinese students sourced from universities) to play around on and with the few premium designed sofas displayed - they can do practically anything on and with the sofas - they were chatting and lolling about, eating and drinking, reposing, reclining, reading, playing with mobile phone, napping.The idea was to present international visitors and buyers to the pavilion to see the sofa as more than an extension of sitting - in a fun way. Of course everyone knows what a sofa is. So, rather than having sales promoters standing around, they went about bringing the sofas to life. The u2018sofa girlsu2019 were inculcated with the companyu2019s and product qualities, so they went about interacting with buyers in English, selling the manufacturer, its culture, quality, product specs, etc. - as they played on the sofas.

Which side of a sofa is healthier to sit on?— — — — — —Your Guide to Choosing the Right SofaFurniture for Achieving the Chattanooga Living Room of Your Dreams Choosing the right sofa for your home involves more than simply picking out something pretty. Let's be honest, the sofa is one of the most highly used pieces in the home. So not only should it look great but it also needs to be comfortable and durable. We always want to help you make smart decisions when it comes to decorating and furnishing your home. So we've put together a guide to help you choose a sofa you are sure to love. First, think about how it will be used. If you are choosing a sofa for your main living area then you need something that's built to last. Especially if you are always the one to host game night or have guests often. Heavy duty springs, such as an eight-way hand tied spring system offered by Kincaid Furniture, will give your sofa the structure it needs to hold up to lots of use. Next, think about who will be using it. If you have children and pets then it's wise to consider a performance fabric. Named for its ability to stand up to most things life will throw at it, performance fabrics will typically outlast most others. For example, both Revolution and Sunbrella brand fabrics are easy to clean and wear well with regular use. You can choose from many designer performance fabrics here in our showroom. Think about how often you like to redecorate. If you are the type of person that likes to give your home regular mini-makeovers then you need a sofa that will work with any style. A transitional sofa will work best for your home as it can easily be blended with different design elements. Think neutral fabrics and classic details for a sofa that will transition seamlessly with any new trend you want to incorporate. Consider the placement of the sofa. Will it float in the space or be placed against a wall? This is especially important to think about when shopping for a reclining sofa. Some reclining sofas can not be placed against a wall, as they need space to recline. And if you choose a power operated reclining sofa then you will need outlets nearby to avoid messy cords running across the room. Consider the style of the other pieces in the room. For example, if you are replacing your sofa but keeping your favorite fabric chair, then consider a leather sofa. It's so easy to mix leather and fabric! Plus, it's a great way to layer texture into the space. Shop our showroom for your next sofa! You can find custom design advice so you are sure to choose the right sofa for your space, no matter your style.
