6 Tips When Buying a Sofa
Most people buy sofas solely based on the look and feel of the fabric. No more than a year will go buy where they notice the cushion sinking, fabrics coming apart and possibly frame breaking. The over clichéd statement of "you get what you pay for" stands very true when it comes to buying sofas, love-seats or any other upholstered good.
Here are 6 Tips in finding out what to look for when purchasing a new sofa set.
The quality of foam is based off of the density number. Most people think it's the firmness level that determines the quality which is completely wrong.
Remember these two factors:
Density = Quality
Firmness = Level of Firmness Only
Most stores that cater to residential homes use foam density of 1.8. Higher densities (2.0 - 2.5) can be found on more expensive residential furniture.
Here at Stylnn we use high density foam that ranges from 2.5-2.7 in density.
3.0 density foam is hard to get a hold of, due to the high price tag and it is not an item that is of high demand. Heavy commercial foam density of 3.0 foam. The higher the foam density the more the cushion will cost.
2.5 - 2.7 is the density we use here at STYLNN
We use the Highest Resilience Foam 2.5 - 2.7 ask around. If a sales person has no idea what density weight is being used on their products, it's best to stay away and shop at Stylnn.
