How to buy a Custom Sofa - Orange County’s Furniture Warehouse

Buying a custom sofa can feel overwhelming as there are so many custom options to choose from. There are literally thousands of shapes, sizes and fabrics. These quick tips can make starting the process a bit easier. First, define what you are looking for. If you already have an idea then make sure to take it with you when you come in (phone or photo). If you dont already know, sites like Pinterest can be a good starting point. You don't necessarily need to know exactly what you want, but do some researching online or through magazines to get a sense of the styles you like and don't like before coming in. Our sales staff can also help. Firstly, where will this fit in the room? What are the current furniture pieces and colors that already exist. What about the fabric color and if you've got young kids, you probably don't want a light colored sofa in a fabric that's difficult to clean. You can consider a stronger fabric and perhaps a darker color. How many people will be on the custom sofa at once. For a large family, a larger sectional might be a good fit with with lots of options for spreading out or snuggling up. If the sofa is going into your private study a smaller more delicate sofa might be a better choice. Also, a custom couch is a long term investment, make sure you come down to the store and try some out. Getting just what you want is much easier in person when you get to sample different fabrics and seating arrangements. Make sure it's comfortable. Make sure you like the seating, some couches can be softer or firmer than others and each choice has their advantages. Factors like seat depth or armrest style can make a big difference. The best way to test is just to sit, and see how it feels. Additionally, enquire about the strength of the fabric. If the couch will be seeing kids on a daily basis, the fabric should be sturdier than a more elegant sofa in a relatively untraveled area. Cotton and linen upholstery can be reasonably priced. Microfiber blends can act like cotton and can resist stains. Leather is stays cool, is easy to clean and lasts a long time. A silk type fabric gives the couch a sleek feel that is perfect for an elegant look but is very hard to care for. Pick out the style and look that matches the sofa’s function. Also, before coming down to the OC furniture store to sample sofas, make sure you know how much room you have. Measure the space so you know what you have to work with. Also consider the style and feel of the room. If it's a large, darker fabric in an otherwise light room, will it feel out place? If the custom sofa is too small will the room feel empty or not give enough seating. The last step is to try it out. We have many of our best selling custom sofas on the floor for you to try out. We hope these quick tips have given you a couple ideas, our sales staff can also help. We hope to see you soon! - Furnishing America
