The answer to that question is resounding yes! As a designer and sales consultant, one the very first questions I ask a client is how will the that piece of upholstery be used?..where and how often? Just because something “looks great” doesn’t make it suitable for every day use. It’s so important for the potential buyer to realize how the overall construction affects the durability and longevity of the sofa or sectional. Helping the consumer understand the inner workings of the frame, the type of springs used, the seat and back core construction, and of course, the type of fabric put on is very important, not only to the life of the sofa, but also helping them understand why the piece costs what it does. It’s so important to speak with a knowledgeable designer/sales consultant who can answer your questions and help you realize the best pieces for you particular area and use.
