The sofa frame will act as the skeleton for the entire sofa, supporting the seat, the back and the arms. It is often crafted from oak or occasionally a dense form of softwood such as certain species of pine. This framework is the most important aspect of furniture construction.
Another important thing you need to consider is the type of sofa you will need. This will depend on how many people will be sitting on the sofa. Nowadays, there are several different types of sofas available in the market. From medium and large sized sectional sofas, to love seats. It is important that you choose a modern sofa which will fit your needs.
The upholstery layers are then added and tacked to the back frame as normal. The back frame need not be as strong as the seat, and the wood used is generally of lower dimensions all round. However, the joints of the back to the seat and arms must be strong to prevent the back frame from collapsing back.
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.
