Two suggestions for those who need new sofas

If you need to go sofa shopping, here are a couple of suggestions that might help you to choose your new piece of furniture.

Make sure the sofa is Aussie-made

It is best to get an Aussie-made sofa if you can. There are many reasons why you should get one that has been manufactured in Australia. First and foremost, doing this is a good way to support the country's economy and do your bit to ensure that Australian furniture manufacturers stay in business and continue to weather any economic storms.

Secondly, because most sofas are fairly costly and are used in most homes on a daily basis, they must be well-made so that they last and provide good value for money. It will be easier to find a sofa like this for your own home if you only look at ones which are made in this country, as the furniture manufacturing standards in Australia are very high. Conversely, if you were to buy a sofa that was made in a different country, whose furniture industry had much poorer quality control systems, you would be more likely to end up with a dud that you would probably have to replace very quickly.

Opt for a modular sofa

More specifically, you should consider searching for Aussie-made modular sofas. The reason for this is that a modular sofa is wonderfully versatile. Because you can easily swap around its components to create a different sofa shape, you'll be able to switch to a new shape if and when you want to.

For example, if you want to rearrange your living room furniture to create a new layout, you can switch the modular sofa's chaise end from the left side to the right (or vice versa). Aside from changing up the room's look, this could also be a useful feature if, for example, you buy a side table that you want to put where the chaise end is currently located, as you can just put the chaise on the other end of the sofa to make space for this table.

Being able to disassemble the sofa could also come in handy if you move house, as you could take apart its components and easily carry each one through the property's doorways instead of having to spend ages pushing and twisting one giant sofa through these entryways.
