The Perfect Sofa

The Perfect Sofa

by Jesse on November 11, 2013

What is the definition of a terrific sofa? Well, I suppose that depends on your needs. Here are a few things I learned about what constitutes a long lasting, kid friendly sofa.

1. Tight back.

My number one criteria. Why? because those darn loose cushions break down so fast. Not to mention little children like to sit on them and help in that smoosh process, lol.

2. Durable fabric.

No one really loves microfiber. However, linen just isn’t that kid friendly. Our last sofa didn’t hold up to my 3 monkeys. So this time I’m going for a more sturdy fabric. Marled Microfiber. It doesn’t have that same slick, butt print leaving feel to it.

3. At least two seat cushions.

Why? Again they break down too quickly to have one long cushion. I have noticed that is a trend lately, to have that one long cushion in the seating area. Boy that’s going to break down fast. Two cushions means a slightly firmer couch, but in the long run you’ll be glad.

4. Raised Legs.

I don’t like the bulky look of a sofa that sits so low to the ground. Not to mention with wood floors, you could never get to your dusty bunnies.

5. Arms.

I am actually bending my rules on this one. Normally I would go for such a chunky arm. Something I love about this sofa though, is that if you wanted to lay down it has the perfect arms for that!


Happy Sofa Hunting!

All great points about a kid-friendly sofa. I generally wouldn’t go for arms that low, but you make a good point about laying down. Because who doesn’t love a good, long Saturday afternoon nap, right?

Girl! You are speaking to me with this! I love our sectional but the tight back is something I neglected and wished I wouldn’t have!

I like tight backs & I cannot lie 😉

That was one of the criteria for our current sofa! I have the back of an 80 yr old woman!
