What applies to a sofa frame also applies to a chair. The sofa frame must be constructed from solid wood. The wood should not be so hard that it cannot accept blue upholstery tacks. Frames which are joined with nails or glue tend to be weak and have only a limited life. The strongest wooden sofa frames are constructed using traditional jointing techniques.
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.
Besides determining the size of the room where the sofa will be placed, you would also need to find out the dimension of your main door. Do not buy a sofa set that can't go through the main door. The chosen sofa should not be too large or too small for your room as it will be the main furniture display set in the living room. L Shaped sofa or large sofa set like sectional sofa would fit well in a large living room to provide more seating space. For smaller living area, nicely designed smaller sofa set would be ideal.
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.
