Expert Advice: The ideal furniture combination

A finishing touchCrafting and selecting the ideal furniture combination

Navigating the ever-evolving world of furniture can be a challenge when it comes to building or reviving chairs, loveseats, sofas or sectionals. Larry Setola Jr., the owner of Just Cushions & Upholstery and Hilton Head Furniture Co., offers valuable advice to assist you in creating the perfect furniture combination.

1. Finding the perfect fabric:

Selecting suitable fabric is vital, as it needs to withstand the wear and tear caused by you and your family. Make sure you take advantage of today’s performance fabrics, which come in different levels. Additionally, the right color choice has the power to transform the mood of a room. Dark-colored fabric can create a closed-off feeling, whereas light-colored fabric, paired with a suitable layout, can create a sense of spaciousness. If you’re unsure about committing to a busy pattern, consider getting pillows made in that pattern as a trial run.

2. Choose wisely when replacing:

When the time comes to replace furniture, be thorough in your search, comparing similar options and conducting thorough research. Take into account the fabric, construction, cushioning and springs being used. It’s worth investing a few extra dollars in a higher-quality piece that guarantees longevity and comfort instead of a cheaper alternative that will require premature replacement. Make sure that frames of the new furniture you are considering are constructed with American/premiere hardwoods, eight-way, hand-tied spring construction and high-density padding and cushioning.

3. Regular maintenance for longevity:

Like a car, your furniture requires regular maintenance to ensure longevity. Remember to rotate and plump cushions frequently, and promptly clean any soiled spots. If the material permits, consider washing it quarterly, either by machine or through dry-cleaning.

4. Consult an upholstery professional:

Before jumping to conclusions and replacing a piece of furniture that has become uncomfortable, consider consulting a local upholsterer. Often, upholstery issues can be resolved, eliminating the need for unnecessary expenses on a new item.
