Aside from the type of sofa, you also need to choose the type of material which your new modern sofa will have. The usual options are leather and fabric. When making this decision, you also need to consider how you will clean your sofa. A leather sofa will need extra care. On the other hand, a fabric sofa will only need minimal care.
A sofa frame must be made from strong, thick wooden beams and crossbars. They must be correctly jointed together using mortise and tenon joints, because they have a lot of weight to bear and also a large number of upholstery tacks to accommodate. The wood cannot be too soft or the tacks will not hold, nor too hard or the tacks will fail to penetrate. Oak, cherry and certain species of pine are fine.
The fabric upholstery on a sofa often represents a significant proportion of its price, which is why it's not worth putting an expensive fabric on an inferior frame (the average sofa requires 15 to 18 yards of fabric). The choice of fabric or leather can greatly influence cost, durability, and even how soft the cushions feel (depending on the fabric's breath ability) as well as, of course, appearance.
When choosing a new sofa, make sure that you pick one with a sturdy, well-constructed frame. Sofa frames can be made from wood or metal, but the highest quality and most durable sofa frames are made from hard wood, such as beech. Some sofa frames are made from a combination of beech and softer woods so that certain parts of them have more give, and some people may find these types of sofa more comfortable. Although they may be cheap, avoid buying sofas with frames made from low-quality materials, such as chipboard or plywood, as they won't last as long and so won't be cost-effective in the long term.
