For understanding better what are sofas made from let’s divide them into these categories:
Solid wood can be without a doubt classified as the most luxurious frame material. It is highly durable, strong, and can have a long life that can be even prolonged if the sofa is kept properly. A solid wood frame is a practical choice that pays off in time, but of course, its price is higher.
The metal frame is not a popular material choice, because it can be loud and it is not so comfortable while you move such a frame. It in common doesn’t like many movements, but if you will treat it with the care it will serve you well and a long time.
MDF, Particleboard, and plywood
These materials are used in industry as a cheaper replacement for solid wood frames. They are not so durable and lower in quality, but still can be a good choice if your budget is limited.
Fabric(chenille, velour, microfiber,jaсquard)
Fabric upholstery is the most variated as you can see. Chenille upholstery is very qualitative and is cleaned easily, but is quite expensive. Velour is a more exquisite variant if we talk about the appearance, its gorgeous shinning and color shades transitions look very stylish, but it is not the best variant if you have pets and kids. Jacquard is also represented in the designs’ gorgeous assortment, but it can be only dry cleaned. Microfiber is the most practical choice because it isn’t afraid of sun, moisture, dust, and dirt. It can be stretched and is hard to cut it.
Leather and eco-leather
Leather sofas are a representation of luxury and exquisiteness. It has a unique texture and this sophisticated deep and warm color. If it is kept in good conditions it can have a long life. The only minus of the leather upholstery is the relevantly high price. This material without doubt has its reputation that is hard to replace with something, but eco-leather can be a good variant for this. Yes, it is not equal to the leather upholstery but is really quite close to it. And the price is really more pleasant.
