A sofa is ’made‐up’ of many dissimilar−parts. With all these `different parts‵ could vary from sofa‐to−sofa, giving each a distinct−look with feel. Knowing how to identify each main‐part also its differences could ´help´ you describe “the sofa“ you want to a “salesperson“ or designer.
The‐arms−define the ends of a sofa ´with−play´ a ”critical−role” in the overall‐look as well as function of the `piece‵.
English arm: An English‐arm is low in‐conjunction with is set back from the front edge of the seat. English_arms are low‐profile with ′suitable′ if you 'like' to take naps on your sofa. They are also good for "little−spaces", as they don't 'project' beyond the−body of the‐sofa.
Pleated arm: The front‐part of a "pleated sofa‐arm" is−covered by‐fabric that is continued from the inside of `the‐arm‵.
Rolled arm: A "very ordinary" traditional shape for sofa−arms, a rolled−arm curves outward. Although cosy for‐lounging as well as reading, rolled‐arms do grab−up ‵extra−space` in‐conjunction with should be taken−into account when measuring a sofa.
Lawson arm: A Lawson arm is a low−profile, modestly scaled version of the rolled arm.
Square arm: Also called a box arm, a square arm gives has a modern, tailored look, with straight lines in−conjunction with angles. Square‐arms are useful for entertaining, as they could serve as seats. However, they are not as “cosy“ as rolled arms for lounging.
Tuxedo arm: Tuxedo−arms are rather ‘flared−arms‘ that have the same height as the sofa‐back.
Sofa‐backs could vary in height, shape, plus cushion material as well as are `integral‵ to the style with comfort−level of a sofa.
Attached back: “Attached‐back“ cushions are fastened, clipped, or sewn to the back of the−sofa. The advantage is that they don‘t move around with you don't have to worry too‐much about `keeping‵ them in−shape.
Camel back: A camel back is a traditional sofa back that is made much like a camel´s hump, lifted in the middle, as well as sloping down lower at the ends. It often imparts a formal−look.
Channel back: Deep vertical furrows on a tight back are the distinguishing features of a channel‐back.
Loose-cushion: Loose−cushions are unconnected from the sofa−back, as opposed to 'attached back−sofas'. This allows for covers to be easily detached for cleaning.
Curved back: The back of a `curved−back sofa‵ curves all the way around so that it forms ‵one solid piece‵ with the arms, which are not attached separately.
Pillow back: A pillow‐back−sofa has 'more pillows than "seat−cushions", as well as therefore a `softer feel‵. This style offers ´comfort´ that could with be adjusted by moving the pillows around.
Tight back: A ‵tight−back‵ in a−sofa is upholstered but does not‐have ‵loose−cushions‵. The back has a firm feel as well as could provide a clean, tailored, plus formal look.
Waterfall back: A waterfall‐sofa back has two or more vertical layers of congregated with billowing cushions that are attached to the back.
Sofa seats are more−than just locations to discover lost−items. The ´right−feel´ of a seat is critical to your pleasure of a sofa.
Cushioned seat: A ′cushioned−seat′ is usually made‐up of two or 'three‐cushions'. Since these−cushions are made to support the weight of the sitter, they are normally harder than `back‐cushions`. The−cushions may be `square‵ or rectangular, depending on the number of cushions on the seat. Sometimes the end cushions are T‐shaped to ´accommodate´ the arms. Cushioned seat covers typically are 'removable'.
Single−cushion seat: Oftentimes a sofa−seat would have just a `single‐cushion`. This is with called a bench‐seat. A ´single−cushion´ seat offers a orderly, minimal look but also could be amalgamated with a pillow−back, which is more about casual−comfort than minimalism. When you sit−down on one end of a good single cushion, it would not rise‐up on the other end.
Tight seat: Sofas that have no unconnected `seat−cushions‵ are often ’called’ a “tight−seat“. This style could be found both−on ‘traditional‘ with modern sofas or sofas with wood−frames. It generally conveys a ceremonial look.
″Under the hood″ of your sofa are the various−parts that ´create−up´ its ‘structure‘. These are mostly responsible for the longevity of a sofa.
Deck: The deck is the surface that reclines directly `underneath` the seat cushions.
Down−proof ticking: Ticking is the inner lining of a cushion, usually tightly woven, that helps keep tiny‐down plumes from moving to a cushion′s exterior.
Eight‐way hand−tied springs: Tied springs are connected to one another with ‘strong twine‘ that sprints front‐to−back, side to side, as well as diagonally in both directions. This construction interconnects the springs for durability plus even support.
Filling: Filing may be foam, down, or padding that is used to create the sofa comfortable.
Frame: The frame comprises the bones of a sofa with decides not just `the shape` but also ´the−quality´. `High−quality‵ sofas have `kiln‐dried‵ 'hardwood frames' with strong, reinforced joints.
Plinth base: Instead of normal−legs, a plinth base is a box‐like base often found on contemporary sofas.
Webbing: Webbing consists of intertwined‐strips of synthetic material, attached to the wood frame of a sofa. It is typically used in location of support−springs.
