Sofas are very commonly used in living rooms. They come in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes so there are plenty of options to choose from regardless of the decor of your home. A sofa can be quite cozy and it allows for close interaction with the others.


The feel of fabric sofas varies widely depending on the fabric itself and the support system of the sofa (i.e. the cushions and frame). However, fabric sofas, on the whole, tend to be much more comfortable than leather sofas for several reasons. First, fabric tends to be an overall softer, warmer material than leather. You want a fabric that’s soft enough but not too soft—the fabric should keep its shape and not wrinkle or sag when you get up.


The wear and tear of fabric sofas most often depends upon the grade of fabric. As you’d expect, high-quality fabrics (just like high-quality leathers) will withstand wear better. Most fabric sofas are treated with a stain-resistant finish, so when spills do happen, they’re easily cleaned with specialty products or a handheld steam cleaner. Also, fabric doesn’t get scratched , so it tends to handle pets’ claws and kids’ homework binders better .

Color and pattern options

Although leather can come in a variety of colors, fabrics are virtually unlimited in pattern, texture, and color, so fabric offers a much better chance of matching existing decor and getting the look you want. This is a great opportunity to express your family’s style: choose a sofa with a fun, bright fabric to grab attention or, alternatively, choose one in a calming neutral to anchor a room filled with art or decorative pieces.


You can usually get more for your money if you go with a fabric sofa. Quality fabric and framing are expensive, but you will end up with a good deal.

Chances are, you will use your sofa every day for many years, so take your time with this decision. Assess your family’s needs and habits, then allow yourself a little time to find just the right piece. Whatever design you choose, modern or classic we at Forever Furniture & Designs have the best offer for you.
