What Everyone Needs to Know Before Buying Their Next Couch

In our daily life, furniture plays a very important role. In our house, the living room is a very important place, and the status of the sofa in the living room is beyond doubt. So what should we pay attention to when buying a sofa, and what are the factors that affect the sofa? Let’s talk about the sofa.


We found that the cushion structure is the most important factor in determining the comfort and service life of a sofa, sofa chair or chair.

A recent survey in the furniture industry shows that most consumers expect their new sofas to last only 3-5 years. This estimate may be very correct, but most consumers are surprised by the short life span. Consumers who have been concerned about the durability of furniture usually ask questions about the structure and fabric of the frame/base. In fact, many “cheap” frames and cheap fabrics can last more than 5 years.

The cushion is almost the first part of a sofa or sofa, it will wear out and need to be replaced.

Unfortunately, most manufacturers and retailers have difficulty replacing worn or damaged cushions. Because the replacement of cushions usually requires cooperation with professional custom decorators, and the price is very expensive.

Most cushions sold with mid-to-low-priced upholstered furniture basically lose their shape and comfort within 1-3 years, and need to be replaced within 3-5 years.

Most sofas and sofas sold in the U.S. have three basic types of cushion structures
Coil spring
Many cushions are made using a combination of two or three of these structures.

Foam is the most common cushion structure. It has several different densities at the same time.

Each foam density has many different hardnesses. Although most people think that density and hardness are synonymous, they are actually quite different. Most foam suppliers now usually provide residential furniture cushions with a common density of 4-5, ranging from 1.5 to 2.5. This number represents the weight (in pounds) of 1 cubic foot of foam. Each of these foam pads in different densities can be provided with 10 or more different hardnesses (from very soft to very strong).

The life expectancy of foam pads mainly depends on the density and thickness of the foam.

Another important factor is whether the foam is HR, even with high resilience, it can better recover its shape after use. However, the frequency of use and the number of people using the cushion will also affect the service life of the cushion.

The “sturdiness” of the foam pad has little effect on life expectancy. However, since most consumers equate “sturdiness” with durability, cheap foam is often made “very strong.” However, for low-density foams, this “particularly hard” feeling will not last long.

The foam used in affordable residential furniture cushions is usually between 1.5 and 2.0. Lower density foam is often used for cushions or cushions that extend over the arms or other parts of the frame. Higher densities (2.0-2.5) can be found on more expensive residential furniture. Foams with a density of 3.0 or higher can be used in furniture designed for heavy commercial or public institutions. The higher the foam density, the higher the cost of the cushion. Changes in hardness usually do not affect cost. HR (high resilience) foam is more expensive than non-HR foam.

For household furniture sold in the United States, the most commonly used foam density is 1.8.


Foams described as “high density” without any specific numbers are usually 1.8 density foams. The foam core is usually between 4″-6″ in thickness and is usually wrapped with polyester fiber. The fiber wrap is usually 0.5-1.5 inches thick on the top and bottom of the mat. It can soften the feel of the cushion and increase the total cushion thickness by 2-3 inches, but it has no effect on the service life. A 4-inch thick foam core made of 1.8-density HR (high resilience) foam can be used for an average of about 2 years before the foam starts to lose its ability to rebound and retain its shape. A 5-inch thick foam core made of 1.8-density HR (high resilience) foam can last about 3 years on average before the foam starts to lose its ability to rebound and retain its shape.

After the deterioration process begins, the foam cushion is usually still usable for several years. Foams that are not highly resilient will degrade more quickly.

The actual foam density will vary during the manufacturing process. A change of 0.1 is considered normal. A foam with a density of 1.8 may actually be 1.7 or 1.9. Major changes are not uncommon. There are many sofas sold for cheaper (lighter weight), foam with a density of 1.5, and even within a year of purchase, the degradation rate is even faster.

The total thickness of the cushion may or may not indicate the durability of the cushion.

Those “value-for-money” sofas sometimes put some cushions on the soft cushions, and a few inches of polyester fiber are wrapped around the foam core. The polyester fiber will compress quickly, which will cause the mat to deform. Higher-quality sofas usually use 1″-1.5″ fiber on each side of the cushion. Lower quality sofas may use up to 3 inches of fiber on each side. Thicker fiber layers are an inexpensive way to add cushions in the short term. Crude fibers compress quickly and cause the mat to deform (usually within a year).

If you want to get more than 5 years of use time from the sofa, then you need to find a better quality sofa.

Higher-priced sofas usually use thicker foam with a density of at least 2.0. But it is better to be higher.

Cushions with built-in coil spring support are usually (but not always) more durable than low-density foam cushions.

Because these coil springs are surrounded by a foam boundary (usually 1.5 or 1.8 density), then additional cushions are filled on the top and bottom. Down/feathers are usually used as cushions together with coil springs. The down/down “jacket” is used as a filling layer on the top and bottom to soften the feel of the cushion. Other common filling materials used in combination with spiral spring pads are generally memory foam and polyester fiber.

The down hybrid cushion is a combination of down/feather and foam core cushion. Compared with the solid board of similar density foam, the service life of down mixed air cushion is relatively short.

When down/feathers are used with coil springs or foam cores, the down of the mixture will usually drop by about 5% (or less) with the rest of the down. Because down is much more expensive than feathers, the cost is too high. More expensive furniture may use a higher percentage of fluff. But down is much softer than feathers. 100% down/feather cushions were very popular in the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. Because of the high cost and the need to loosen the cushion every time you stand, they are not so common today. Down/feather will not have “elasticity” after use, and will not bounce back by itself like foam or coil springs after use.

No matter how much money you spend on purchasing the cushions, they are almost not covered by the warranty.

Guarantees (including extended guarantees) are usually written as required, so that anything that happens on the mat is considered “normal wear and tear” * or “abuse” *. As long as you have any of these conditions, your warranty will usually be invalidated-even if the mat was purchased for less than a year. Therefore, a small tip for consumers who want to buy furniture is to pick them up to test cushions when buying sofas. Generally, if the cushion feels “light”, it means that your sofa life expectancy is very short. The longest cushion will be the heaviest.

The cushion structure is a key factor that affects the comfort and service life of the sofa. Because of the difference in structure, the price is different. When buying, you need to think about which sofa you need to buy.

DIY retro paint painting to rebuild retro sofa

With the passage of time, the old-fashioned furniture of the past may have disappeared a few years ago, but it has indeed reappeared in people’s vision in the past two years, and the popularity has not decreased.

retro sofa1
Retro sofa

Today, I have to do one thing-rebuild the retro sofa. I have seen vintage retro sofas that have been refurbished many times, and the last one I saw was a few painted with fabric, I was thinking why I can’t do this?

Painting the fabric of the sofa is actually very simple, and it can save a lot of time when refurbishing the sofa or lover’s seat, because you don’t need to redecorate. Plus bonus, usually you have extra paint on hand, so the price is not high!

Below I will guide you step by step how to refurbish a vintage retro sofa.

  1. How to cover an old sofa

Things to prepare for the project:

I. Selected paint and paint brush
II. Water and bowl or basin to hold water
III. Sanding machine, sandpaper, etc.
IV.Worx MakerX production tool
V. Paint Brush
VI. Rags or old towels
VII. Sealing machine of choice

  1. Before painting on the sofa

I have had this vintage retro sofa for a while now, but I am not sure if I am ready to start this project. I know it will be difficult and tedious to redo the entire sofa. I didn’t even plan to try it until I received the Worx MakerX tool. But I know that once I have the tools, I can easily complete this project.

Multifunctional tools allow me to really polish all small and narrow wood areas on the sofa. The following is the process I completed with paint on the sofa!

The first step is to remove the liner and hardware from the sofa
Begin to remove backing boards, nails or staples, and unnecessary fabrics from the sofa. I chose to remove all the backing and keep the paint on the front pad area. The sofa cushions were torn and torn, so I couldn’t use them to paint.

The second step is to paint the interior sofa
The color of the paint I used in this project is green, which is Benjamin Moore’s Chimmichuri color, with semi-gloss furniture paint. Add linen white Annie Sloan chalk paint as an auxiliary paint.

To paint fabric on the sofa, you need to do two things. Wet fabric and paint off the water. You want to dye the fabric more than the actual paint. Water the paint to make the fabric really wet, so that the fibers can absorb and dye instead of adding a thick layer on top.

I took out a piece of cloth from the back of the sofa to test the paint. Before painting the samples, I wet the fabric with a damp cloth.

In the upper left and upper right, I allocated 1:5 water proportionally for painting. There is almost no water. As you can see, it is thicker and once the sample dries, it makes the fabric stiff and too stiff.

In the lower left and right corners, the ratio of water to paint is 3:5. I only use half the paint and half the water. It dries lighter, but is soft to the touch. Dye the fabric so that it does not become stiff.

Then use a rag and a bowl of water to soak the fabric on the sofa. I got the rest of the entire back and sides wet.

I added water to the paint to a ratio of 3:5, and then painted the fabric. Painting becomes easier.

The first coat is now. I did not use the tape to peel off, because I have to sand the wood with sandpaper after painting.

After waiting 20 minutes for the first coat of paint to dry, I sanded the fabric with 120 grit sandpaper. Remove any roughness. Doing so will peel off the thicker paint and make it more comfortable to sit up later.

After the first polishing is completed. You will see that there are many spots that do not absorb the fabric. So I made another coat. Let it dry and sand once. So there are two coats of paint in total.

After both coats are dry, close it.

Step 3: Sandwood on the sofa
After painting the fabric, I will go down to the sand wood and paint green as well.

In this project, there are many small gaps and groves that need to be polished. Fortunately, I have the Worx MakerX production tool. It is convenient to sand in these small gaps.

The Worx MakerX unique tool combo kit is portable and plug-in battery makes it super easy to carry and use many types of projects. I used it to polish these small gaps and it worked well. The size of the precision tool is perfect for this job.

To use Worx MakerX, choose between multiple different heads. For this project, I used two different small sanding options. To change them, you can pull the top like a drill bit and unscrew the bottom. It only takes a few seconds to replace parts.

After making your choice, all you have to do is plug the handheld tool into the battery so you can carry it with you. Turn on the power and select the speed. The speed range is from slow to true. The battery can be used continuously.

Step 4 paint wood
After polishing, I painted the wood with green paint. I use the same paint brush and add it to the coat.

Step 5 Distress Wood
I chose to sand the wood with sandpaper to give it more texture and characteristics. I used 120 grit sandpaper.

The sixth step seal wood
I choose to use wax wood sealant to seal. I wiped a small amount with a paper towel.
After drying for 15 minutes, I wiped off the wax with a microfiber cloth and it was done.

Retro fabric painting sofa after review
After finishing all the operations, I added cushions to the sofa. 4 mats of size 20×20 are very suitable! The tufted sofa cushion comes from Target.

After adding cushions, the old retro sofa is rebuilt. Because my upholstery fabric is white, I only applied two layers. If the fabric is darker, plan to coat more.

I strongly suggest that you can carry out this simple DIY project. You can learn a lot in the process of doing this project. You can also re-recognize the history of vintage retro sofa.

Are Ergonomic Office Chairs Better Than Normal Chairs?

Office Chairs1

In the current office furniture, many businesses are branding the ergonomic office chair. What is an ergonomic office chair? If an ordinary chair refers to a chair with limited ergonomic functions, then the answer to this question is yes. Ergonomic chairs or chairs with ergonomic adjustment capabilities, these chairs can provide a variety of extra support for the human body and the adjustments we need to sit comfortably on the chair. This helps people working in the office to reduce back and neck problems that may be caused by sitting in “normal” chairs.

Let us discuss the ergonomic functions of the ergonomic chair:

Lumbar support

People who often cannot afford to sit in the office often feel soreness in the lower back. This is because the lumbar support of the office chair is limited, and the lumbar support function of the ergonomic office chair can provide the proper support for your lower back. , And can prevent shaking. In an ideal situation, if you often sit in a chair all day, an office chair with this function is your ideal choice.

Adjustable seat height

The seat height adjustment function of the chair is easy to explain-it is capable of adjusting the seat height of the chair. So depending on the suitability of the office chair, you may or may not need to adjust the chair seat to suit your needs. When adjusting the height of the seat, please remember to sit up straight with your feet touching the ground. Do not hang your feet on the chair. This is bad for the human body.

Adjustable back height

After sitting upright, you can adjust the height of the backrest to suit your own height. The backrest height adjustment function allows you to adjust the backrest of the office chair to a suitable height, so as to obtain the proper lumbar support you need, so that you can get a more comfortable sitting posture.

Adjustable armrest

These adjustable armrests allow you to move the armrest up and down or left and right. These are very helpful if the arm’s current setting is not correct and hinders you. Many ergonomic chairs are equipped with adjustable armrests, but only one of these two functions is possible instead of both.

Seat depth

If you can adjust the seat depth of the chair, you can sit more comfortably. Because you should know that when you have enough space to sit completely on the seat and the joints such as the back of your knees can comfortably lean against the edge of the seat, it will feel comfortable.

All of the ergonomic adjustments of these office chairs require a lot of consideration. A good first step is to determine what is necessary for you and stick to the budget so that you can get the features you need.

Minimalist life: questioning the floor sofa

Have you ever seen a house without a floor couch?

I think I don’t have one. I have seen my friend’s house, relative’s house and neighbor’s house. Since I was little, I have been thinking about the house I will live in later. I thought about the houses I saw on TV, movies and magazines.

From humble studios to multi-million dollar McMansions, from downtown to suburbs to shops, you can hardly find a living room without a floor couch.

When considering this decorative theme, I realized that our floor couch has always been a key to our decoration. Because when we look for a house or apartment, we first want to know how the layout will accommodate it. After moving in, we will spend some time trying its best orientation and placement (relative to the wall? At an angle? Facing a window or TV?). In some cases, we even bought new ones because the old ones did not fit our newly dug style or size.

Naturally, after finding an apartment in the UK, the first problem that appeared was the floor couch. We lived for two weeks without a piece of furniture (a paradise of minimalism!), but our backs became a little numb when sitting on the wooden floor.

Personally, I would choose to buy some floor mats and call it a day. Because no matter how comfortable the decoration of the room is, I usually lie on the floor. I feel more relaxed on the ground. Whether I am eating, reading or surfing the Internet, this is where you can usually find me.

However, this is only suitable when I live alone. When you have your significant other or guests, you can’t ask them to sit on the floor together. In order to make them have a more comfortable seat, So we began to find the way to floor couch. We spent a weekend conducting various searches on the Internet and visited many furniture stores to find the perfect floor couch for our new apartment. We studied a lot of every type (from futons to double seats to partitions) or collocations imaginable, and tried to imagine their appearance in an open-plan living room.

When your significant other suddenly asked you: “Do we really need a floor couch?”, we just chose a piece of furniture with a mid-century modern design.

floor sofa2
floor sofa

Do we really need floor couchs? Well, this is a good question. We took a break from shopping and had a discussion. Because we do not have a TV, we are not sure what the floor couch will face. In addition, we always have to sit side by side instead of facing each other, unless we buy some chairs. In this way, the more we think about it, the less the floor couch will attract us. Not to mention it may need more furniture to balance it.

therefore. We came to the conclusion that we not only do not need floor couchs, but also other furniture. We don’t even want one.

But does it feel strange? We all want to know what we think when a landlord, guest or family member comes to visit, and finally found an empty place where we should put the floor couch. But then we came to the conclusion: we have been considered a bit weird, because we quit our good jobs, gave up everything we had and moved to a foreign country. Why not go bankrupt to confirm our (already suspected) weirdness? Why not live in a house without a floor couch?

Therefore, instead of putting money on a bulky, expensive floor couch (one day we will have to resell it), we decided to adopt a lighter, mobile and versatile option: just to combine two IKEA Poang chairs and one The coffee table is placed in our Mini and is on the way. So far, we have completed the task of providing apartments.

Of course I am not suggesting that minimalists should not have floor couchs. I mean, we should first consider why we have our own jobs. We should adapt our property to our lifestyle, not the other way around. We should not have other things because of expectations, nor should we feel pressured because of having other things. We should be free to have only those things that meet our needs.

In our case, at this specific location and at this specific time, the floor couch cannot meet our needs, so we simply decided not to have one. So, what items are you sure you don’t need to own? I wish to know them!

First declare the furniture: what is this?

If you feel unable to answer this question, then let us answer your question. This is a piece of furniture that exactly matches the location, color and space of a specific area of ​​the room. Whenever you enter the place, distinctive furniture can attract your attention. But there is always a piece of furniture that always attracts people’s attention because it does not have the appearance you want. This is its essence. For example, it can be a brown and round wooden table with carvings on it, lying on the edge of the room, right next to the red wall with beautiful paintings. The image alone is enough to make you feel its elegance, isn’t it?

How to make your own personalized furniture with wood?

When making wood furniture, you seem to have an advantage that you don’t have to buy a lot of things to make your own furniture with wood.

Why choose it?

Who doesn’t like being followed? Each of us is working hard to do this, so you also want your home to be equally attractive. If you agree with me, choosing wooden furniture is a wise choice for you. It not only provides a better appearance, but is also durable and environmentally friendly. It can also catch the audience’s sight and soothe the audience’s mood. Its elegant and atmospheric appearance makes people feel refreshed. Keeping wooden furniture can make your house look like an antique and have more life style.

Oak or pine. Are you confused?

Are you confused when you want wooden furniture? Which kind of wood should I choose? Is it oak or pine? Well, to make the right choice, you must understand their nature. Both oak and pine can be used for furniture, and both are very elegant. Although oak is more expensive than pine, pine is lighter and oak is heavier, which makes furniture made of oak heavy. Buying oak furniture is more like an investment. Therefore, we believe that choosing pine wood will be a feasible and ideal choice.

Wooden furniture is now a large proportion of people choose furniture, because wooden furniture can bring a lot of different feelings of furniture made of other materials, and wooden furniture adds an elegant appearance. Unique charm and environmental protection properties have created its unique value!

Why Are Furniture Stores In A Perpetual State Of “Closing Soon”?

The company expects to close 200 stores by the end of 2020, and most of these closures have reportedly already begun to shift inventory from target markets to distribution centers. Carter’s announced in October that it would close 1.4% of its stores, most of them by the end of 2020. Eight stores are permanently closed, including two in New York City and one in Chicago, according to the company’s website. The locations have not been announced, but up to 200 of the stores are expected to close by the end of 2020.

The long list of stores closing in 2020 includes an ever-growing number of retailers that have filed for bankruptcy. Here’s a look at the retail stores that will close, file for bankruptcy or close by 2020. Macy’s: 60 stores are expected to close by the end of September 2020, according to the company’s website, and 60% of those stores will close in the first half of 2020 as a result of the retailer’s bankruptcy filing.

Electronics retailer Circuit City had 567 stores when it filed for bankruptcy in 2008 and eventually began to close. By the late 1970s, it was the world’s largest department store chain, but its fortunes quickly changed. In 1997, all stores in the United States were closed, according to the website.

Future Loves Stores took part in the delayed pandemic and announced it would close 141 stores after a sale was completed and assets liquidated. The retailer also announced it would close most of its stores permanently and launch a “sell-off.”

The bankruptcy was annulled when the business was taken over by Marquee Brands, which announced it would shift online sales. After temporarily closing its stores and temporarily switching to online sales due to pandemic policies, it announced plans to reopen 300 Express locations, including a plan to reopen by Memorial Day weekend. The store temporarily closed all stores in March (COVID 19) and then opened 43 nationwide stores with pick-up and online shopping opportunities to reopen.

Bed, Bath & Beyond (BBBY) has just announced that 200 more stores will be added to the list, as will the 500 remaining Pier 1 stores after the bankruptcy filing. It is unclear how many stores remain, but it was clear when the company announced in March that it would close 300 locations permanently. On its website, Luxottica announced that it would close all of its stores by February 1, including its flagship stores in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco. In total, there will be 405 stores, including those that the retailer said would close by February 2020 and those it has now closed.

In September 2020, the company announced it would close 500 stores over the next two years and close 40 to 50 permanently each year. In November 2019, Sears revealed plans to close 96 stores by February 2020, including its flagship locations in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Transformco, which owns Sears, said in November that it would close 51 Sears stores from February 2020, including a store in Whitehall and a store in north Wales.

In October, Carter’s announced it would close 200 stores by the end of 2022, and as part of the bankruptcy process, the retailer announced it would close 192 stores permanently each year. JCPenney has already started selling off 130 stores and recently unveiled plans for 13 more to close over the next two years. Liquidations and sales will begin in early July. In August 2020, the company announced that it would permanently close all of its stand-alone retail stores in the US and Canada.

The retailer also announced that 19 Lord & Taylor locations will be permanently closed after the store closes and sale. Franchisees – own shops have also been included in the closures, with Art Van Furniture branches closing from March.

Walgreens announced last August that it would close about 200 U.S. locations, but did not say when it would close. Gap expects to close about 50 of its stores this fiscal year, excluding new openings and repositioning.

Kohl’s amassed losses of more than $1 billion in the first quarter of 2020, including weeks of store closures, and the company has announced more permanent store closures. For the rest of the year, IBM predicts that the home furnishings and furniture stores will close this year with a net loss of about $1.2 billion, or about 2.5 percent of total U.S. retail sales. In the first half of 2020, UBS found that home furnishings stores are likely to be hardest hit by permanent store closures – a total of 820 stores, including about 1,000 home furnace stores and about 500 last-minute stores that close permanently. By the end of 2019, IBM says, it will have announced some of these more permanent store closures.

What Are The Types Of Wood Used In Furniture?

Before we go into the common types of wood, I would like to give a brief overview of “Everything you need to know about wood.” Before we get into what is used in furniture production in the middle of the century, it is important to note the difference between hard and soft wood. In this article we will discuss the different types of hard, soft and semi-hard wood.

The type of wood used in furniture production depends on whether the wood is visible or not. Whether you choose hard, soft or semi-hard wood or a combination of both, it is the specific types of wood that determine the character of your home decor. The type of wood chosen for a piece of furniture naturally influences the price of the furniture, but that is not the only factor.

While most furniture is made from the above mentioned wood, many other woods are also used in furniture construction.

IKEA designer Jon Karlsson explains: “We have a database of Swedish words that are matched by product names,” he explains. If you’re curious to know what these words actually mean, we’ve put together a list of the weirdest Ikea product names that sound ridiculous to most of us. To swamp you and demystify the most ridiculous-sounding IKEa product names, use the IkeA catalog. A camera track shows the new Ike furniture that gradually appears in your room and describes the product as it was used in the catalogs – in Swedish, of course.

This doesn’t really fall into the category of unusual items, but it has become one of my favorite items at IKEA at all. If you’re looking for a product you absolutely must have, check out some of our favorites, including the drying cabinet.

For items that would normally be quite expensive, but are offered much cheaper by Ikea, it is best to shop elsewhere. For items that are usually fairly cheap at the same price as at home or even at a lower price, it would be good to shop elsewhere because of a lack of quality and because they offer them at much lower prices.

Anyone who has ever been to an IKEA knows how hard it is to leave the store in time. Ikea stores are usually out of town, so it can take a lot of time and money to get to the shops.
