How To Buy A Sofa in Knoxville
A sofa is one of the biggest furniture purchases you are likely to make. It’s also a key focal point and a piece that lasts for generations. But, don’t let the shopping process stress you out. If there’s one thing that we know at Sofas & More in Knoxville, TN, it’s sofas! We’ve seen a lot of people come through the showroom a little unsure about what sofa they should choose, or how to pick a sofa that works for their home. Well, we can’t offer detailed advice to every single person online that wants to know how to buy a sofa in Knoxville (unless you visit the showroom) or anywhere else, but we can provide some great general sofa-buying tips that are good for just about anyone!
HOW TO BUY A SOFA IN KNOXVILLE (or anywhere else) in 3 EASY STEPS!
(Step 1) Match Your Style
The style of the sofa depends on your style. If you are more traditional, choose a sofa with rolled arms and tufted cushions, like this one from Vaughn-Bassett. If you lean toward contemporary, choose a sofa with cleaner lines and understated upholstery. If there are other skirted pieces in the space, choose a sofa with exposed legs and vice versa. If you’re short on space, look at sofas with low arms, or no arms at all, to make your room look bigger.
(Step 2) Go With A Classic Color & Fabric to Fit Any Home (or just go with Tennessee Volunteers Orange!)
Go with a neutral color and switch out throw pillows to update the look. Take into consideration the durability and finish of your fabric selection. If you have small children or pets, you’ll want to pick a fabric that is heavy-duty and stain-resistant. Lighter and neutral colors are less likely to show dust and hair and more likely to work in a variety of rooms, with a variety of decorations.
(Step 3) Buy Quality
Quality counts. A solid base and adequate stuffing will ensure the longest life possible. Actually sitting on the sofa before purchasing it helps you make sure the cushions are as firm, or as soft, as you want and will allow you to detect any wobble or weakness in the frame or legs. There are several handfuls of legacy brands that have been manufacturing quality furniture for decades. Before you shop discount stores, imports, or start-up companies online, consider options from brands with a rich history of quality products and outstanding reviews. A few that we highly recommend are La-Z-Boy, Jackson Catnapper, England and Southern Motion.
