Before You Buy a Couch:  6 Things You Should Know
by Steven M. Fisher

1: COLOR IS KEY.

Look for colors that express your personal style or work with colors you already have in your room because color will be the first element you respond to.

2: COMFORTABILITY.

When you find a style that appeals to you, try it out for comfort. Bounce up and down on the cushions. Make sure it feels right to you.

3: THE DURABILITY TEST.

Wiggle the arms. Do they hold firm, indicating good workmanship? Lift the frame. Does it feel heavy and sturdy?

4: GET THE FEEL.

How does it feel? Check out the fabric. Are the seams straight? Does the fabric line up properly? Most importantly, do you like the way it feels when you sit on it?

5: THE PRICE.

Double check the price against other sofas you have looked at. Quality sofas are available in all price ranges.

6: MEASURE IT.

The sofa shouldn’t overwhelm your room, but also you don’t want it to be dwarfed by the other pieces of furniture.
