There are few pieces of furniture that receive more use than a sofa. It is the place you relax at the end of the day, cuddle with your significant other during movie night, and turn to for comfort on sick days. This is why it is important to buy a sofa that is not only comfortable, but durable enough to withstand constant use. Don’t fall prey to stores that offer five years zero interest financing. In most cases those stores are selling the financing, not the furniture, and you are lucky if the furniture lasts much longer than the time it takes to pay it off. Instead, look for the following qualities to ensure your sofa will last for years.
