When deciding on a new purchase you need to take a few things into consideration. Style, colour, finish, size, cost, durability, comfort,brand, blend and appropriateness.
The look of a sofa is obviously all important and there are many styles to choose from. There are some very Germanic, clean line sofas available that are often referred to as cube sofas - they tend to be quite firm but also tend to maintain their shape for many years. They are usually made from complex foam like HR foam.
Do not be fooled into thinking that because these sofas contain foam they are in any way inferior. HR foam (High Resilience foam) is engineered to retain its bounce even after years of use and most of the top furniture seating manufacturers in the world use it within their production. It is open cell, flexible polyurethane that has a very random structure which helps to add support and bounces back into shape very quickly.
Gamma & Dandy and Leolux all make sofas that fall into the "cube" category and are all definitely worth a look.
Italian sofas vary greatly from their German counterparts. They tend to be softer and more sumptuous looking and some of our favourite sofas are by an Italian brand called Naustro Italia.
These sofas are usually made up of different layers of foam and feather or a Dacron wrap.
The Dacron wrap helps add to the life of the sofa by adding "loft" to the interior filling.
