A sofa is a piece of furniture that can be found in practically everybody's house. It is indeed an inviting piece of furniture, even in your friend's home. One look at the sofa and it almost invites you to sleep on it. There are many types of sofas for one to choose from: leather sofas, futon sofas, sectional sofas and modern sofas. Those on a budget can go for one of the various inexpensive sofas available, while those who want to make their offices comfortable can choose from the various office sofas available. There are also sofas that are stuffed, padded and spring cushioned to make the sofa feel more comfortable. The choice of the sofa gives the house the elegance and style that is needed, while the house is defined by the decorative material and fabrics that cover the sofa.
The first type of furniture was made of leather. The leather was stretched without any padding under it for support. However, later, during the Italian Renaissance, chairs were cushioned with leather, embroidery, and velvet, and the French chairs were the ornate ones with tapestries and embroideries. The application of springs in the sofa is fairly a modern concept. The padding in sofas is usually made of hair, flock, foam, fiber, rubber and kapok, while some of the sofa coverings may be made out of woven fabrics, plastics, synthetic leather and leather. In fact, there are thousands of sofas, sectional sofas and other home furniture in the market from which to choose.
The matter of material is another consideration. Leather sofas are considered more luxurious, but offer fewer colour options. With most tanning techniques, a leather sofa will age with use, but resist the negative effects of wear and tear. To keep them at their best, they need to be kept away from heat sources, which can dry them out. Sunlight is also able to fade leather like just like it does fabric, so a leather sofa should be kept from direct sun. Leather has also become more affordable in recent years compared to what it used to cost. This is due to improvements in processing techniques.
